Goggles are all personal preference. You should try them on, either borrowed or at your local proshop, and see if they're worth $120 to you. A high price tag does not necessarily mean good performance or quality, but Dye has a great, albeit expensive, reputation.

While it's true that goggles are all personal preference, I think spending $120 on goggles in insane. If you're money's a little tight, try out some of the less expensive masks that are also highly regarded, such as the JT proflex, vforce grill, vforce profilers, proto pro axis, etc. before blowing a ton of cash on goggles that you may end up not even liking.

Definitely try i4s before you buy, they are pretty small lol.

But you could probably get some lnib or bnib cheaper on bst. I love mine.

I know that masks are all personal preference. I was just asking if there was anything different in them from other masks that made them more expensive, or if you were just paying for the name. I also just wanted to know if they were worth $120 to you guys. Not because I was going to buy them.

Better off with something tried and true like the Proflex or Grillz. Not worth it at all.

How often do you even change lenses? Maybe like ONCE from Winter to Summer?... don't see why quick change matters at all

some of us like to thoroughly clean our goggles.... Having a quick change lens means I can come home after reffing or playing, pop the lens out on my profits in like two seconds, and clean the lens and goggles spotless. Makes the lens last longer, from my experience.

I'm considering getting them just for the quick change lens. While I'm mostly happy with my JTs (and have been for the whole 15 years I've been playing), I'm getting sick and tired of dealing with the lens every time I come home from the field.

i4's are the most comfortable mask ever.

If it means I have to spend a bit more to get a mask that feels like an extension of my own face, then so be it.

Yeah, I4s are like wearing Unicorn hugs on your face. It has a nice tight profile and have good air flow.

No other mask I've worn compares.

All about E-Vents!!

But yes $120 is worth it.

I don't know WHY they work, but they outperform anything on the market hands down...and they're MADE IN AMERICA.

I found they feel pretty flimsey and are too small. I don't have a big head either. The foam isnt the most comfortable. For comfort the Proto Axis and JT Pro flex > I4.
