Rating: Good price for prescription mask
Reviewer: Paul N.
Its difficult to shop for a SCUBA mask online. But the fit of this one worked out pretty well. If youre very nearsighted like I am, dont even bother taking SCUBA lessons without a prescription mask.

Rating: Perfect fit with room to grow!
Reviewer: Valarie B.  -  View all my reviews
I purchased the H2O Alpha 2 mask for my 10 year old daughter. She is 47 & 63 lbs. These are a perfect fit for her with room to grow. These are very well made & I feel like they will last for years to come. I also purchased corrective lenses for these and Scuba.com put them in before shipping (& sent the original clear lenses as well)! She can see like a champ now at the beach! Shes already used these a handful of times and raves everytime about how much she loves them, how comfortable they are and most importantly how she can see clearly! Thanks so much for the quick ordering process and shipping! Oh & she loves the neoprene mask strap wrapper...she loves that it doesnt get stuck in her hair. I would highly recommend these!

Rating: Best Mask Ever
Reviewer: Richard Rehrig
I bought the H2O mask after my wife received hers as a Christmas present from our son, an experienced snorkeler. Her mask had corrective lenses and allowed her to see things in the water she never could see before. This mask fits well, is comfortable, and allows good vision because of its large lenses. I am glad I got this mask.

Rating: Great mask for a guy with glasses and a moustache!
Reviewer: Christine O´Byrne  -  View all my reviews
I wanted to find the perfect mask for my husband, who has a strong lens prescription and also has a moustache. It took a while, but after reading the other reviews about this mask, it was the one I decided to try. I ordered the purge valve version, which only comes with the clear mask, because thats what the guys with moustaches were liking. My husband had never snorkeled before and I wanted him to have a positive experience. This mask did the job perfect! My husband even commented that he could see better with the masks prescription lenses than with his glasses, and joked that he would wear the mask to do his computer work. No leaking to speak of, and if there is a little then the purge valve takes care of it. I decided that I would order one for myself too, only in black with no purge valve and no prescription lenses, since I dont wear glasses and dont have a moustache (yet). I love my mask too!

Rating: I wear glasses and never thought I couldnt afford a DIVE MASK with CORRECTIVE LENSES.
Reviewer: Steve S.  -  View all my reviews
This is by far the best thing Ive done to enjoy diving even more. Im near sighted and just excepted that I couldnt afford a DIVE Mask with CORRECTIVE LENSES, well I was dead wrong! The Mask with lenses only cost $100.00. On my very first dive with my new mask I found out what I was missing on all of my earlier dives. Wow what a difference. See what your missing. If you wear glasses, you deserve to see the underwater world as nature intended. Dont miss out like I did, order your DIVE MASK with Corrective lenses NOW! Call your eye doctor and find out the DIOPTER for each eye and see what you have been missing on your dives!

Rating: This is a decent one for the money
Reviewer: Thayn M.  -  View all my reviews
This is a pretty decent mask for the money. The visibility is good and the purge valve works well. My only complaint would be that the silicone sill is a little thin so it gets a little uncomfortable along my forehead. I might have also had it a little too tight, so who knows.

Rating: Just a wonderful Mask
Reviewer: Richard Benson  -  View all my reviews
Had this mask shipped to our vacation destination of Hawaii. I have a Thin shapped face and always have had trouble getting a good seal. No problems with this mask, great seal and having a purge valve (not that I needed it because I always had a good seal) made this a great buy. Would recommend this mask anytime. Thanks Scuba.com for the fast shipping and great service.

Rating: Alpha 2 Mask #039347 With Lens
Reviewer: patricia r.  -  View all my reviews
This mask is a topnotch product with or without the purger. Mask straps are sturdy and easily adjustable. Mask shape adheres nicely to the face. The mask seal is strong and little if any water seeps in. Additionally, I ordered prescription lenses and I can see everything! Shipment came within 7 days. I am now ready for the wonderful Caribbean snorkeling experience with this mask. Whether ordering on line or talking to the friendly staffers at scuba.com, I have found them to be helpful in their guidance and right on the mark with this mask endorsement. Pat 3

Great Mask! I just got back from a week in Roatan. The mask was extremely comfortable, fit grat , no leaks. The corrective lenses were wonderful. I especially liked the black skirt which helped with glare when looking in holes. I would say this mask-lens package is a best buy! Thanks

Rating: Great Mask
Reviewer: Fernando P.
In over 40 years of diving I have worn a lot of masks. What I like abou this mask is the softness of the silicone. I have a mustache and I also like the fact that it makes a good seal over the mustache. It did take some getting used to as I have always used panoramic masks with side lenses and the field of vision with this mask is definitely narrower. What I do not like about it is that I ordered it with bifocals. The impression from the way it is marketed on scuba.com is that I was getting true bifocal lenses. I was surprised when the mask arrived and it was just two big magnifiers glued to the bottom of the lens. I even called scuba.com before ordering it and was not told that these were glued on magnifiers. If it wasnt because the mask arrived a few days before I had to leave on a dive trip I would have sent it back. Dontknow if I should blame manufacturer or scuba.com for this. Had the mask been a true bifocal as advertised I would have given it a five.

Rating: Needs redesign
Reviewer: Enrique M.  -  View all my reviews

Rating: I can see clearly now...
Reviewer: Brian Armstrong
I purchased the Alpha 2 mask with corrective lenses after having dived using contact lenses in the past. I was amazed at the quality of the mask and was able to see very well with the new lenses. I also received the plain lenses with my mask so if my prescription changes, I can still keep using the mask. The fit of the mask was very good and the case that came with it allowed me to put my regular glasses in a safe place while under water. This was also my first use of a mask with a purge valve (another great option available). It worked great! Thank you Scuba.com:)

Rating: Great mask, great corrective lenses, great service
Reviewer: Gary Sanders  -  View all my reviews
I am extremely nearsighted. I need correction close to the maximum -8 diopters that H2O offers. I have used one of these masks for several years and find it excellent. When my eyesight changed recently, O rdered a second mask with new correction. Shipped very quickly. My placed order had not requested the correct lens on one side (no fault to scuba.com). A replacement lens was installed on the same day I presented the mask, no questions asked. These lenses are extremely easy to swap out and scuba.coms service is great.

i go this mask with the prescription lens s. scuba.com installed the lenses before shipping to me. i can see great - i cant believe how cheap it was - if i had known i would have gotten a prescription mask years ago. (i used to wear contact lenses regularly, but stopped and have been using my remaining supply only for diving.) the only problem i had with the mask was a need to play with the position on my face a little bit so that it didnt put pressure on the bridge of my nose, but as i said just a small change in position and no more problem.

Rating: Great fit mask
Reviewer: Susan Kemp  -  View all my reviews
I am very pleased with my new H2O Alpha 2 mask. My husband and I just returned from a trip to Cozumel where we snorkeled everyday. This is my first mask with a purge valve - loved it! It was comfortable on my face and didnt leave a "red mask mark". Another review spoke of the purge valve rubbing on nose and making nose sore. I didnt have any trouble with that. I had a little trouble with it fogging up, but all my masks have been that way. I used anti-fog spray and spit...does anything really work for a long period of time??? I hope to enjoy this mask for several years!

Rating: Not Sure They Sent the Right Mask
Reviewer: Tracy F.  -  View all my reviews
The mask I have is very nice, but I cant for the life of me find the purge valve. The nose area collects water and I have to surface to blow the water out. I had ordered the mask with purge, so I think they just shipped the wrong one. The case says with purge, so perhaps the factory packaged it incorrectly.

Reviewer: Pamela Smith  -  View all my reviews
Great purge mask, for a small face. I had difficulty finding a mask for a small face, they all leaked. This one fits nicely, doesnt fog, and purges easily because of the soft nose pocket. I was skeptical of the quality when ordering this mask because it was inexpensive but was pleasantly surprised.

Rating: Great Perscription Mask for the Price
Reviewer: Michael Atherton
This mask fits great and rarely leaks from the sides as some of my other masks have. The lenses work great: I can see clearly at distances! Now I can make the most out of 30 visibility. Ive since been told that it wasnt wise to buy a mask with a purge for diving, but I havent had any problems with it, although its more likely to clear from the side than the purge. I though I might get rid of that little bit of water at the bottom that gets in your eyes if you turn upside down. It does seem to do that, but Im not sure if its the purge thats clearing. If it gives me any trouble, Ill just buy another Alpha 2 without a purge and switch my lens.

I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my wife. Be both found them very comfortable.

Rating: Good value for the price
Reviewer: George H.  -  View all my reviews
as a new diver, i purchased the h2o alpha 2 mask as part of a package. initially, i was a little afraid that theyd be too smal for my face (im decidedly not 60lbs), but after having dove 7 times with them, i have decided that they do hold up pretty well. if theres anything that i could be said not to like about the mask is that the silicon under the nose piece seems a bit short on every dive, ive had a wet nosebut its nothing that really bothered me. then again, considering that i was diving in the tropical waters of hawaii, im not so sure how pleased ill be with a wet nose diving in colder waters.

Rating: worked for me
Reviewer: Michael B.  -  View all my reviews
Mask worked fine (7 dives so far this mask), fits and seals well. Purge works well. Bought with bifocal lense. It is dificult but possible to view guages through the bifocal lense. The bifocal lense could be slightly elevated for better viewing. It is my first bifocal mask, it might not get any better with a different mask. Absolutely no fogging without using any cleaner or anti fogger, I only used spit. Ive been diving for 15 years and prefer larger mask. I also have a mustach. Make sure you understand how to order your lense. I normally have a +250 lense with an additional +200 tri focal. The bifocal makes it possible to read the guages, but I wish I had something for normal straight out viewing as well. It may be worth the money to get the focal in a whole lense and then add the bifocal later???

This mask from H2O has performed quite well. With my chubby cheeks I tend to get a little water seeping in just below the eyes every time I smile. This mask, with its built-in purge allows smooth and easy clearing. So, if you cant keep a straight face, even under water, try this one out.

Reviewer: Ron Cooley  -  View all my reviews
The H2O Alpha 2 Purge Mask is an OK mask for a fair price. It is not a great mask. Its perfect for casual snorkelers. Its not as good as I wanted for scuba diving. The purge works OK, but its not protected as the better purge masks are and Im always needing to purge it. For some reason it doesnt seal as well as my other masks. Its now my back-up mask when I dive. Hope this helps!

Rating: H2O ALPHA 2 PURGE MASK
Reviewer: Julie Jeffries  -  View all my reviews
Definitely has its pros and cons. With a traditional snorkel/dive mask, I almost never had to worry about "equalizing" it. With this mask it seems I have to equalize it a lot. Because I bought it online and couldnt try it on in the store, its also a little big on my face and it doesnt have a super great seal. Again, though, its probably just because I couldnt try it on before-hand.

Great mask, but alittle narrow for my 35 year old, normal shaped, manly head. I got the perscription lenses and the are great too. I used it 7 straight days diving and snorkeling in the keys.

Ive tried on and used about 10 different small face masks. The H2O Alpha 2 Purge Mask is the best by far. It worked so good that I never had to use the purge, but just to make sure it worked well I filled the entire mask with water and was able to completely purge it in one breath. My face has been hard to fit until now. I love my H2O Alpha Mask...

I bought this mask because I have a smaller face and have a hard time finding a good, comfortable fit. Used it for the first time last weekend - very comfortable, great fit, and virtually an unobstructed view. Easy to clear without using the purge valve, so unless you are addicted to your purge you probably dont need to spend the extra money for it.

Rating: Better than clearing a standard mask
Reviewer: Robert Johnson  -  View all my reviews
Bu unfortunately, the bubbles go right in front of your eyes. A good mask fit my smaller face well and purge valve is still going strong, this is a backup mask for me, I prefered the oceanic mask with the purge, that one has a channel that the bubbles go to the sides so you can see when clearing your mask. I would reccoment this mask as a cheaper alternative.

i purchased the h2o alpha 2 purge mask along with my precription to replace the normal lens. the mask was delivered in record time and allows me to see much clearer than the old style s i had in my scuba pro mask. plus, the reason i prefer the purge masks is that while im descending, i can equalize simply by blowing gently through my nose. the purge valve allows me to clear while at the same time equalizing the pressure inside the airspace of the mask. i love this product!!!

Reviewer: Christine Lane  -  View all my reviews
Good basic mask. The purge valve takes some getting used to though- it leaks on the surface so is not good when snorkeling and leaks at depth unless you remember to equalise frequently.. So think carefully about a continually cold wet nose is worth benefit of easier mask clearing!

Rating: I was Blind, but now I can see
Reviewer: Brian Olson Instructor
Of all the masks I have used in the last year, the Alpha 2 is hands down one of the most comfortable and versatile masks out there. This low-volume maks is constructed out of the highest grade silicone that molds to the contours of just about everyones face that gets near it. This means a great fit that feels good and a seal that doesnt leak! Being a long-time mustache wearer, I have run the gambit of novelties and techniques to keep water out of my masks from silicone grease to vaseline to surfboard wax. None of them are as effective as they are messy. The purge valve under the nose pocket is hidden from a divers fingers, so its easy to equalize, but it is large enough to clear water very quickly. An added bonus to this mask is the ability to put prescription lenses into it. This is truly one of the best ways to clearly see the underwater world with minimum hassle and maximum DIVE.

Rating: Masks with Purges are Awesome!
Reviewer: Lynne M.  -  View all my reviews
I bought a mask from Scuba.com last year and had some difficulty as I always blow air out of my nose when I go underwater. The purge really makes it easy and also helps to clear the mask.
