Rating: Overall quite happy with it.
Reviewer: Jeffrey N.
this mask performed well, was comfortable and provides excellent field of view. i did notice that on 2 dives i had trouble with water leaking in that annoying drip-drip-drip thing. not sure if it was user error but since ive had quite a few years experience with several masks, i figured there was something i need to figure out with this one. apparently i did because the problem only occurred on a couple of dives in the middle of the trip. i got the clear frame and skirt because i prefer not to have the closed in feeling of a black mask. i did not notice any disturbing reflections or backside glare.

Rating: Good Vision!
Reviewer: Joel M.  -  View all my reviews
I can see great in this mask! The only trouble I have is I need the mask to be a little tighter on my head to keep water out. The result is the mask being too tight on my head and causes me some massive pain right between my eyes. Im going to try a different strap next time and see if that helps. If it doesnt, Ill need to get a new mask.

Rating: X-Vision
Reviewer: Tom C.  -  View all my reviews
This mask is a lot more comfortable than my old mask. I was not sure if the vision field would be the same since my old one was a tri window model, but the view is the same or better. The low profile design is easier to clear than my old one. This is a great mask.

Rating: Clear as a window
Reviewer: Harlon P.  -  View all my reviews
Excellent mask. Very light weight, flexible and a very good field of vision. It seals extremely well even with my mustache. Forms to the face and is very easy to clear. With De-Fog, it is liking looking through a freshly cleaned window!

Rating: Great fitting mask
Reviewer: Kathleen A.
After trying on several different styles and brands of masks for snorkeling, I found this mask to provide a great fit. I have a mustache which makes achieving a good fit more challenging.

Rating: Great view and did not leak
Reviewer: Sheila Callaghan  -  View all my reviews
I used this mask for five dives while in North Carolina, my nephews borrowed it for snorkeling and we all agree the mask fits wonderfully, did not fog up much and does not leak at all. I was very happy with this product and recommend you also buy the magnetic defogger which allows you to defog the mask while in the water.

Rating: Excellent fit and field of vision
Reviewer: Rick D.
Both I and my wife use the X-Vision. It fits so well that you dont even have mask marks at the end of the dive. Top off the fit with a great field of view in a low volume mask and youve got a real winner

Rating: x-vision 0-water
Reviewer: Christopher Rouse
I originally bought the liquid skin version of this mask along with prescription lenses and had problems with the mask excessively leaking due to the skirt being so soft. I bought this (less expensive) version and I have never had a better all-around mask. The prescription lenses even interchanged without a problem.

Rating: X-Vision Mask
Reviewer: Eric M.  -  View all my reviews
I purchased the X-Vision Mask that was marked as “used”. I was surprised when I opened the box that the mask was as new and still had all the tags. New product and used prices. The mask is marketed as having good downward vision. I was happy to see that the X-Vision Mask was as advertised. Downward vision with the mask on is just as good as not wearing a mask at all. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rating: Pretty good overall, but a little wet.
Reviewer: Reed Fehr
This mask is fantastic overall. The field of vision is impressive and the elongated shape easily facilitating checking your gauges without straining your neck. Fit is comfortable and the strap releases are very well designed. The only downside to this mask was that there seemed to be a small amount of water constantly in the very bottom of it. The dive master where I used the mask warned me of this, but I didnt find it to be an inconvenience. It was only a small amount and never really grew into a larger problem. The benefits of this mask far out-weight the negatives, all in all I am still happy with it and would totally buy it again.

Rating: Great Item
Reviewer: Mitchell Levine  -  View all my reviews
The Mares X-vision dive mask is very comfortable to use. Getting a mask with a bit of color helped to locate it as it slipped out of my hand while taking a photo on the surface. Its not always about stylish looks. A great item.

Rating: In the middle
Reviewer: David C.  -  View all my reviews
I am sure this is a great mask for some one that has a small nose. I was told it would fit but once I got it I had to return it. I can not say it is a bad mask, all I can say is if you have a larger nose, this is not the mask for you.

Rating: Great deal on a Great Mask
Reviewer: Mike Clem  -  View all my reviews
This mask is as comfortable, and offers as good of visability, as masks costing 2 to 3 times as much . It is extremely easy to adjust with just a quick tug on the strap. I have no troubles with leaks and have let two other divers try it and they both agree.

Rating: Mares X-Vision Mask.
Reviewer: Richard T.  -  View all my reviews
I bought this mask recently as a spare mask. I am fairly impressed. Nice low profile and a super wide field of vision. I like the adjustable buckles. Very easy to adjust and loosen. However the buckles are too narow to accept a standard mask strap or neoprene strap. If the strap were to break you would need a Mares strap or you would be out of luck. The silicone is not as soft as my Akona mask and it does not conform as well to facial creases etc. Overall a quality product.

Rating: Very nice mask, best mask for the money
Reviewer: Christopher S.  -  View all my reviews
This mask is awesome. The seal it has if really good I never had a leak, even when I tried to flood my mask it took some effort to break the seal. The large tear shaped lens make for a very large viewing area. I would defiantly buy this mask again.

Rating: Great mask
Reviewer: Ryan C.  -  View all my reviews
Great field of view on this mask with very low volume. The downside on a low volume mask is that if it leaks...it fills up very quickly. Had this problem initially and had to shave my mustache on a recent trip to Cozumel. The mask then sealed very well.

Rating: Good Wide-Face Covering Mask
Reviewer: Robert Stillwell
I have a wide face and it is often hard to find something that will both cover my face and not allow seepage around my moustache. This does this while having an excellent viewing window with a pretty wide view for a lower volume mask.

Rating: Finally a mask that feels comfortable!!
Reviewer: Greg Deskin Instructor
It has always seemed that comfort, field of view, and no leaks were incompatible in a scuba mask. The first time I tried the X-vision I knew it was comfortable and it possessed a greater field of view than my old low profile mask, but would it leak? As a Scuba Instructor, I do not need to be fussing with my mask underwater when I’m diving with students. The moment I did my first descent at our favorite Catalina Island dive spot, I knew I had a winner! As soon as I reached home, I went out and bought a second X-vision as a backup (instructors always carry spare gear). That old low profile mask is now a donation to the local Boy’s Scout Troup.
