I got this mask to do some snorkeling near Ambergris Caye in Belize, and figured that if thats one of the best snorkeling destinations in the world I better be able to enjoy it. I had a little bit of fogging until I got some help clearing the mask (scrub it down with fan coral or the tail of your cotton shirt, rinse, apply saliva, and rinse) - then it was crystal clear the whole time. I have a decent moustache so I got the mask purge option and once I got used to it, it worked fantastic. After an hour-plus I would get a little sore under my nose, but overall I was delighted with the mask. Thanks to all the good reviews!
I got some prescription lenses for this mask because my eyesight is *bad*. The diopter-only lenses did a very good job even though I have some cylinder correction as well. On land, I had a little double vision off in the distance but once I got used to it *or* got into the water, no problems.

I wondered if this mask would be comfortable because it has a little plastic piece on the inside under your nose. I tried it out for about half an hour and did not notice the piece. The mask didnt leak and worked well.
Rating: Fantastic Mask
Reviewer: Douglas B.,
Ive used this mask for diving and snorkeling and its an amazing mask. The purge valve is small, but I have learned that if you get water in the mask all you have to do is exhale through your nose slowly and it quickly clears the mask. I have gotten to the point that I dont even think about clearing the mask anymore.

Although this mask has a nose purge valve, I find it harder to completely evacuate than a mask without it. Whether the seal around the purge valve will last is to be determined. Great visibility to the sides.
Rating: Great mask

One of the better masks that I have used. The fit was excellent and this is the first mask I have used with the bi-focals. Age has caught up with me and I now need reading glasses, the little circles pasted to my old mask helped reading gauges but did not do well with operating my camera. This mask with the bifocals did the job and exceeded my expectations. This is one of the few masks that fit my face and was very simple to clear underwater.

After renting masks in Hawaii, I bought this mask for snorkeling in the Carribean, specifically so I didnt have to worry about finding the right optical lenses. (I didnt buy a snorkel or fins) The mask was easy to adjust to fit, but I did have some difficulty on the boat getting one of the snorkels on. First day out there was some leakage, but it was incredibly easy to clear through the one-way vent. Second day out, I shaved more of my mustache off, and there was absolutely no leakage whatsoever. Visibility was excellent, including the correction for my near-sightedness. Mask was completely comfortable. Based on my surface snorkeling use, I highly recommend this mask. Next time out, Ill get a dry snorkel too!

Ocean Quest Arctic Clear HD Scuba Dive Mask
Used the mask to snorkel and scuba. Purge worked well and the fit was good.
Was able to loosen the head strap so very comfortable during long wear time.
Would recommend the mask.

I have not yet used this in the water, however it fits perfectectly. I have a mustache and it is the first mask I ever had that does not leak. The head band is very comfortable and easy to adjust. Field of vision is excellent and the goggles appear sturdy and well made.the rubber fitting is soft and comfortable on the face. I would recommend this product.

This is a replacement for an old mask, which had begun to leak a little. This one is comfortable and does well. I would recommend it to anyone. I use it to swim laps, since I have a spine problem and cant turn my head, so use a snorkel.

After years of snorkeling with an old pair of glasses, temples removed, tucked in my mask I came across this mask and Rx lenses - Im very nearsighted and previously found it just too expensive to consider Rx lenses at quotes of $300+ when I only snorkel on vacation a couple of weeks per year. I found Scuba.com price for prescription lenses absolutely amazing and immediately ordered.
Received my mask in time frame specified, free shipping and no costs i.e. duty, gst etc. related to shipping into Canada.
Havent been in the ocean yet but did try it out in the pool for fit and vision and its wonderful! Vision is above what I expected - can hardly wait to be on a reef!

I am a novice when it comes to snorkeling.. When I was a kid we used to snorkel in our pool, the mask I had was a full face mask(dont remember what kind). It came with a purge valve right on the face piece. I can remember thinking how cool it was to be able to clear my mask while I was still under water. As I got older I have tried, with no success, to find a dive mask like that again.
I purchased the Arctic Clear HD Scuba Dive Mask w/ purge valve in hopes of rekindleing that little kid in me. While the purge valve has moved from the face piece to under your nose, there is no change in the way it operates, that little kid was back. The clarity is excellent and it fits perfectly to my face, even my kids can wear it with no problems. I HIGHLY Recommend this mask w/ or w/o the purge valve!

Im fairly new to diving- just under a year, and I was having trouble finding a mask that didnt make me feel clautrophobic and that didnt leak. This mask accomplished both goals. Its comfortable and the purge valve gives an added measure of psychological safety- especially if clearing your mask seems like another task in the endless list of things to remember to do/ not do when you are diving.

Reviewer: Diane L.,
I ordered 3 different masks and tested all 3. This mask came out the big winner. The fit perfect. Good low profile, clears easily with purge and comfortable. No flog and stays clear. Best mask out of 3.

not so crazy about that mask - i never really got it tight....it was always a bit leaking. Maybe its me and not the mask to blame, but Im looking for a different one now.
Rating: Good product, delivered on time.
Reviewer: Mark S. Lee,
The mask has a small leak. Unable to detect the cause. Might be the seal around one of the lenses.

Very good mask for the price. Have one for both of my children (12 snorkels, and 14 dives) Both like them and no complaints of leaking. Purge makes clearing very easy if necessary though.
