Rating: Good Snorkle
Reviewer: Rodney S.  -  View all my reviews
I followed the Scuba.com recommendation and am pleased with the snorkle. It does what its supposed to do. Forget the "dry" or "semi-dry" hype, youre in the freakin water !!! Lets face it, if you dont do it right, you get a mouthful of water !!!

Rating: XS Scuba Viper
Reviewer: Scott Brown
I found that this snorkel is very hard for me to breath with. It is tapered near the top and I have a hard time drawing in a breath with it. Ive only used it once and will most likely be getting a replacement before next summer.

Rating: Not worth the extra expense
Reviewer: Howard S.
I chose this snorkel because of the easy to clear valve. The valve ended up leaking and I needed to clear the snorkel every 2 minutes or so. Im not happy at all with the purchase. I just needed it for scuba but, if I was to snorkel, I would return it immediately!

Rating: Not as good as I had hoped. ..
Reviewer: Shannon Smith  -  View all my reviews
this snorkel did not do well for me. i am a beginner diver and this particular snorkel kept falling over in the pool i was practicing in for class. my instructor had me swim laps up and down the pool to see if i was perhaps ducking my head the snorkel kept getting water in it. it was a bit top heavy. i only used it four times before the mask clasp broke. i am now looking for a new one per my instructors advice.

A snorkel is a snorkel to me but for the money you get what you pay for a average snorkel for a average price.

Reviewer: Bryan M.
Bought for a trip in Cabo. Worked great, I have always used cheaper equipment, what a mistake. Snorkel kept water out and was comfortable to use.

Reviewer: Debra S.  -  View all my reviews
No need to use when diving, but when it was used while snorkeling - trips were excellent. Easy to use and comfortable - not rigid which is very important.

Rating: Works fine
Reviewer: Reed Moss  -  View all my reviews
I bought the snorkel initially as a requirement for my OW cert class, but have since used it for snorkeling trips. It works well, though I have used better ones. It gurgles water, but purges fine.

Rating: good for the price
Reviewer: Larry Douglas  -  View all my reviews
The snorkel breathes well but the swivel on the keeper lets it get in the way when you reach for the BC lnflator .I would prefer it to be fixed
