Just returned from 8 days of snorkling & this mask was outstanding. Fit was great, the purge feature took care of any water with little effort, really happy I chose to pay a little more & get a quality mask

Rating: Great Fit for Narrow Faces
Reviewer: TAMMY C.
I have a very narrow face and this mask fits perfectly. Most masks that I have tried do not fit me well and cause leakage because they are too big. I also love having the purge valve. It is slightly uncomfortable until you get used to it. It did kind of press on up on my nose a bit at first, but then I figured out that be keeping the strap at just the right spot on my head that it no longer pressed on my nose. I could see how it would probably not be comfotable for someone with a big nose though. But it is worth having the purge for me, because any amount of leakage that I do get is very easily cleard out. I highly recommend this mask for anyone who wants a purge mask and has a narrow face.

Rating: Not Recommended
Reviewer: Collin M.  -  View all my reviews
I had never had a purge on a mask until I bought this one. I now realize I dont need a purge valve to purge my mask. The old fashion way works better. The purge valve is a bulky obtrusion and is an unwanted feature in my opinion.

Rating: Big Noses Only
Reviewer: Laura Reinhard  -  View all my reviews
Because the purge valve gets in the way from the bottom, you have to have a really large nose in order for this mask to work, at least if you want to equalize. I couldnt reach my nose. Redesign is needed.

Rating: A great mask for a smaller face!
Reviewer: GRIFFIN O.
This mask is wonderful. It fits my smaller face well. It is very easy to equalize pressure and clear the mask. A great buy for a very good mask.

    I am looking for a low volume mask for freediving. Will this work.

    Yes, this is a low volume mask and would be great for freediving. Also the M-210 Panthes Free Dive Mask will work as well.

Water is more dense than air, which makes objects look blurry. A mask provides an air spae in front of the eyes to eliminate distorted vision.


Prior to using the mask for the first time, thoroughly clean both sides of the lens with a nonabrasive liquid detergent, or toothpaste, to remove any residue, then rinse with fresh water.

To prevent fogging during use, rub a 'no fog' solution, or saliva, on the inner surface of the lense while it is still dry, then rinse with water.

Adjust the strap so that it holds the mask comfortably and firmly in position on your face without being too tight or restrictive.


Place the mask on your face and pull the strap over the top of your head.

To clear water that enters the mask, stand up or come to the surface and lift the bottom of the mask away from your face to allow the water to drain out. While underwater, tilt yourhead back and exhale gently into the mask while pressing the top portion with your fingers. Water will be forced out the bottom edge.

To eliminate mask squeeze caused by the higher pressures that are experienced when diving deeper than a few feet, exhale slowly into the mask through your nose as you dive deeper. To equalize pressure in your ears, pinch your nose closed with your thumb and finger and blow gently while holding your mouth closed.

Care and Maintenance

At the end of each day of use, rinse your mask thoroughly in fresh water and towel dry. Do not allow the clear silicone skirt or strap to come in contact with items that are black rubber. This will cause the clear silicone to become discolored. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or excessive heat.
Ensure that the mask is completely dry before storing. Store in a cool, dry location.
