Could you advise if the Mantis full face mask will be compatible with the "Brownies Third Lung™ Explorer 390, I am looking at purchasing this unit and these masks would be get for the young fellas. regards Scott
Hello Scott, yes you can use this with the 3rd lung. All you need to do it zip tie the regulator to the mask like you a mouthpiece. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Thx to Bill for answering my question that a snorkel can fit on a scuba mask in place of the regulator. Ill only use it for swimming laps. (My snorkel mouth piece has begun to hurt my gums.) My next question : What is the least expensive scuba mask and snorkle you can recommend?
i have a handicaped child that is 15, we bought one full face mask and the top does not seal real well on his forehead. a childs fave is more oval then an adults. will this mask seal better for a youth or childs face?
I would like to purchase a microphone to use with the Mantis fullface Mask but I do not see them listed as an accessory. I would like to be able to communicate with my husband back on the boat. Where and what kind would you recommenD
This is the diver unit: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-168/027150/Ocean-Technology-Mantis-Buddy-Phone.html For the surface unit: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-167/031140/Ocean-Technology-Buddy-Phone-Surface-Station-SP-100D-2.html
I see that a snorkel can be used with this mask. What snorkel would you recommend?
Hello Raplh, the snorkel that we suggest would be the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-39/039507/Ocean-Quest-Pacific-Totally-Dry-Snorkel.html or the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-599/039402/Finis-Swimmers-Snorkel.html.
Is it possible to use this with a SpareAir, and swap them as needed during a dive? I feel somewhat "naked" without an alternate, totally independent air source.
Hello Dan, yes you could use it that way but would not suggest it. If you would want to run that set up you would need to hold either the regulator or the spare air in place since you normally would have the regulator attached to that spot by a zip tie. Now if you dove with a spare mask as a back-up that the spare air system if you ever had that happen you would be able to ditch the mask grap the spare air than put your back-up mask on.
Hi, can anyone advise me if its possible to connect a second breathing regulator (Octopus) to the Mantis full face mask. Also is it possible to connect any regulator this mask.
Is there a regulator out there that directs bubbles WELL away from my gopro mounted on my diving mask? Im fine against current or while swimming but when stationary the bubbles just really mess up my vids when they surface directly in front of the GP lens. I have a mask that has a GoPro mount just above my eyes on my forhead.
Unfortunately even a regulator with the wider exhaust T still directs bubbles up in front of the face when stationary and sitting vertically. They are all designed with the thought that a diver would be swimming horizontally for the majority of their dive.
The Mantis full-face mask is an ideal solution for the recreational diver who wants to truly experience all that diving has to offer. Combining the Mantis with our latest generation Buddy Phone®; and Super Mic creates a incomparable combination of price and performance for any recreational dive profile.
Our latest generation Buddy Phone features a new design with an innovative squelch to help eliminate unwanted bubble and marine-biological noise. The squelch gives increased intelligibility without sacrificing power.
When diving with the Mantis FFM and Buddy Phone, you will be able to communicate with all Single Sideband acoustic underwater devices within range and on the same frequency. This includes other Buddy Phone® divers, divers using the Aquacom® SSB-2001/2010 diver unit, and surface units such as the SP-100D2.
The Super Mic is 100% floodable to any depth and has all the benefits of an acoustically balanced, noise-canceling microphone. It packs a lot of power into a compact design to help maintain the Mantis' low-volume design.
The Mantis mask comes in either black or clear silicone. An optional surface breathing valve is available to allow you to conserve your breathing gas supply by breathing ambient air while on the surface.
