This FFM has a awesome look with all that black coloration. It will allow a diver to look almost like "Darth Vader" of the deep.. LOL.

An amazing product..
Without a doubt worth the money..
the most comfortable mask ive worn, and that goes for diving and even SCBA masks in my fire department.
the equilizing with there 3d system takes a little to get used to, and its a little hairy to adjust the 3d system but once its set up, it works great..

The small/medium size is great for smaller faces which is why I got it to show off the advantages of an FFM to my small faced diving friends

Questions and Answers for Ocean Reef Neptune Space Raptor Full Face Mask:
If I wanted the ocean reef visor light on the space raptor, how much would it cost? Also, what kind of miflex hose would I want to get for it, and how long, to be connected to a DIN 1st stage with 5th port routing on a swiel turrent. thanks

Hello Jean, Thank your for your inquiry. I'll be send you an answer directly on Monday because we need to contact Ocean Reef directly.
Could you please help me with several questions:
-is it now with the discount and the price for it is 555.95 USD?
-do you have mask with the 1st stage not Yoke, but DIN for 300 bar.
-do you have in set with mask the 2n stage?
-how much is the ligher for it that is set into the mask?
-how much is the mask ( Neptun Raptor) with the communicators?
-and question is about delivery? What price and amount of days will be for delivery
1. Russian federation, Kaliningrad, 236000
2.Russian federation, Moscow
3. Belgium , Waregem.
Thank you in advance/ Julia

For more detailed answers, including current pricing and availability please contact our instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org The Ocean Reef Masks come with the 2nd Stage integrated into the mask. The 1st Stage is available in DIN or Yoke and is offered separate.
Can the Raptor be used with surface-supplied rigs like cage diving operators use, or is it strictly for use with a cylinder?
Does the raptor requires to buy the SAV like the other neptune space masks?
I am confused because I am reading that it is integrated
Darrick (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
Hello Gustavo, yes the Raptor does come with the SAV already installed. If you look at the different FFM you will see it stated if it comes with or without the SAV.
i was about to place an order to buy a space raptor mask, along with lp hose,1st stage regulator and swivel however reading the manual it says that the sl35tx 1st stage is not compatible with nitrox. if so, what other 1st stage is nitrox compatible and i can use with the raptor?
thanks for your reply
Darrick (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
Hello Gustavo, yes the 1st you are asking about is not Nitrox ready. They do make a Nitrox only 1st. This would be Nitrox ready up to 40% out of the box. But if you would ever use standard air on the Nitrox 1st stage you would need to get that unit O2 cleaned before you can you Nitrox on that 1st stage.
Neptune Space Raptor
product code: OR025001 (S/M) product code: OR025002 (M/L)Neptune Space Raptor
The RAPTOR is an O2 cleaned mask. The o-rings are composed of Viton and the o-ring lubricant is a Christo-lube oxygen compatible grease. The Neptune Space Raptor includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty. The Raptor distinguishes itself by the black Ixef ® polyaramide cover and the black orinasal mask, making it the ALL BLACK MASK.
State-of-the-art integrated regulator Excellent visual field Premium grade silicone rubber bellows-type skirt Durable, scratch resistant visor Newly designed quick release system 4 position adjustable exhaust valve Patented 3-D equalization system Six strap head harness with low elasticity and FRB (Fast Rotating Buckle) Integrated surface air valve Easy access purge button Techpolymer protection treatments allow for use in extreme conditions Total weight of 970 g (2.13 lbs) & a positive buoyancy of 296 g (0.65 lbs) Can be used with a communication unit and Neptune System accessories Two sizes: Small/Medium Medium/Large
The Neptune Space visor is made of transparent polycarbonate. It is designed to be wider and sit closer to the face than previous full face masks. This design maximizes the visual field, particularly the peripheral area. The visible light transfer of the visor is 92%. Required field of vision (effective) >40% of the natural field of vision – Space masks 71.80%. Required field of vision (binocular) >50% of binocular natural field of vision – Space masks 80.68% Italcert certification PPE-05 Rif 1332/05
The insert photos show the visual field of the Neptune Space compared with two competitor’s full face masks.
Durability and scratching resistance
The visor of the Neptune Space can resist the impact of a 6.35 mm steel ball traveling at speeds of 540 kph (335 mph). The visor is coated on both sides with a siloxane resin to increase the scratching and chemical resistance.
Tested by STANAG 4296 = resistance to the impact of a 325mg metal fragment with a speed of 240 m/s and Impact resistance test: 39.3 mm/254 g sphere from 1300 mm, no cracking or added protection during transport, the Neptune Space comes with a removable protective shield (to be removed before diving).
The head harness and FRB II
The head harness is directly attached to the face shield, allowing pressure to be distributed equally along the mask skirt. The six straps of the head harness hold the mask in a firm position due to their low elasticity. The tip of each strap (rubber) is wider, making them easier to grasp while wearing neoprene gloves. The FRB II (Raptor and Space Fast Rotating Buckle) allows the mask to be donned and doffed quickly. Predator and IRON MASK use an AISI 316 stainless steel with surface electric treatment and AISI 316 stainless steel rollers.
The Neptune Space air circulation system is designed to minimize fogging and reduce the amount of CO and CO2 buildup. The silicone orinasal pocket is built with two one way valves through which air is inhaled. Exhaled air is directed through a valve under the orinasal pocket, limiting the mixing of this air (containing high amounts of CO2) with the fresh air from the regulator. The direction of exhaled air is controlled by a directional exhaust valve. This adjustable valve allows exhaust to flow in four possible directions:
A - To the left B - To the right C - Both (direction of least resistance) D - No exhaust
Position D, the “off” position is used when the diver is in a “head-down” position which, due to pressure on the second stage, causes the regulator to free flow. Placing the exhaust valve in the off position causes pressure to build in the mask, preventing free flow and returning the system to an “air on demand” situation.
Surface air valve
The Neptune Space is equipped with a surface air valve that allows the diver to breathe ambient air while at the surface. The surface air valve is easily adjustable with large air vents. Draining and pressure equalization Water that may seep into the mask is easily eliminated by exhaling or pushing the “purge” button on the 2nd stage. Mask squeeze, a common problem for conventional masks, will not occur with the Neptune Space because the pressure inside the mask is equal to the pressure outside the mask.
The 3-D equalization system
The patented OCEAN REEF 3-D equalization system is designed to allow easy equalization during a dive. The system consists of a movable plate and two eccentric blocks (these blocks move close to the nostrils when the upper part of the visor is pressed). When equipped with Visor Lights (see after), use the regulator to push the mask toward your face, creating a nasal seal. The blocks plug the diver’s nose allowing equalization. Before donning the mask, the blocks may be moved up or down depending on the length of the diver’s nose. They may also be adjusted to fit wide or narrow noses. The system also includes three pairs of extenders (3, 6, 10mm long) which allow the distance between the blocks and the nose to be modified to accommodate the diver’s face. The 3-D equalization system makes diving more comfortable and inhibits any undesired pressure during a dive.
The Neptune masks are equipped with a pneumatically balanced second stage providing a consistent ease of breath at any tank pressure. An inhalation adjustment feature allows the diver to control air delivery under a variety of diving conditions. The system works with 2 coaxial springs.
The Dive/Pre-dive (Venturi) lever reduces free flow on the surface and provides maximum air flow while at depth. The Neptune Space mask complies with CE Certification in accordance with 89/689/EEC directives under the UNI EN250 standard rules for underwater activities, including low temperatures (<50°F/ <10°C).
