Fantastic piece of equipment. Fits snuggly and no dogging up. Highly recommended.
Was a Good mask until ... I had a moment when I was snorkelling when I couldn’t get the mask off and there was no air getting into it. So I was basically suffocating with it as the more I struggled the tighter the mask went to my face. Thankfully it came off with a lot of force which bruised all my jaw! So scary. Will never use it again.
My partner had missed out on snorkelling in the Caribbean a year ago, he has a tash, and his mask doesn't fit well enough not to drown him everytime he tries to snorkel with me. I saw such wonderful fish, I wanted him to enjoy the same amazing time. Purchased a mask and not looked back. We saw turtles this year, and loads of tropical fish, clowns and needle fish and lots of others. The mask is an amazing addition
I cannot recommend this product enough. I’d tried snorkelling once before on holiday and it was a disaster. However with this, I first tried it in the pool then the sea. Once I relaxed I loved it and it was an amazing experience, I understand why so many people do it! I snorkelled every day with this, just do it. Make sure you get the right size for you and tighten it otherwise it will leak. However easy to adjust, just make sure you don’t forget if someone else wears it!
This mask truly made my holiday. Went to Mexico where water is very clear and amazing sealife. I am normally quite nervous in the sea but for some reason felt safe with this mask because didn't have to think much about breathing, just enjoyed it.
It didn't let in any water and was comfortable. When I purchased mine I didn't see the clip which they also sell very cheap. The clip can be attached to the mask where you can attach a go pro camera to film all the wonderful creatures, really an amzing product.
Just returned from Mexico where we used this snorkel in the sea, and could see everything plain as day.My wife has one and loves it as well.Asked by numerous people where they were purchased.
As avid fans of snorkeling when on holiday, myself and my wife decide to purchase these for our honeymoon trip to the Caribbean as we didn't want to miss out on all of the beautiful underwater scenery.
We did have standard mask/mouthpiece combinations, but when we saw these at our local decathlon we decided to give them a try. We were never huge fans of a bulky mouthpiece and only being able to breath through our mouths, let alone fogging goggles and leaky areas.
We used these masks around 4 times whilst on our holiday and not once did they let any water in. They fit snugly and extremely comfortable around your face, providing the ability to breath normally though both your mouth and nose. As you would expect, it offers some resistance when breathing due to the one-way valve, but once you relax and breath slower this becomes effortless and comfortable.
Vision is excellent, providing a clear view of the sea-life. The shape of the mask does make it difficult to see directly to your side because of distortion, so I often failed to spot my wife waving at me as she pointed out some exciting marine life.
This mask also has the option for a waterproof action camera mount (I used a GoPro 3+) which is great for recording all your snorkeling memories, although this is sold separately for a small cost.
Overall we were both extremely satisfied with these masks. They never fogged, provided clear vision, remained watertight, easier to breathe in and were just more comfortable overall. As some people have said, their size is their only downside when it comes to packing things for holiday, but it's a small sacrifice for the better snorkeling experience gained.
Im not a pro snorkeler just a bit on holiday. Pros: If you find snorkelling dounting in deep water and worried about getting a mouth full of water when your tube gets water in. This mask will solve your problem it's so hassle free put your face in and your off and breath like normal. This is a big thing for me just breathing through mouth isn't natural to me and I get tired easy and out of breath and this solves that. The view is great also no fogging at all.
Cons: Its so big and takes a lot more room in baggage as I would like, not a big deal but something to think about. I usually just take hand luggage and this was around 30% of my space. Secondly the ability to go down in the water is a no chance, i mean not even I meter down. It sucks to your face, plus the tube doesn't like it and you need to remember to breathe out or it's scary when you can't breathe coming up. But that being said novice snorkelers arnt going down. Just annoying when I just wanted to go a little bit more and couldn't. But the pros deffo out way the cons.
very pleased with these purchased three
I had previously used a quite expensive snorkel and mask, however this product renders the old gear redundant. What a fantastic mask these are. My wife thought about having one first and I sniggered a bit, but after trying in the store I ended up buying one myself!! And I am glad I did. I would highly recommend this mask to both beginners and experienced snorkellers alike.
