Average Customer Review: based on 3 reviews.Rating: Comfortable but slightly narrow
I have a relatively large face. From what Ive read online the TUSA M-24 PowerVeiw mask should be a good choice for me. I will use this mask primarily for snorkeling, but I am getting PADI certified and plan to dive occasionally also. I know that it would be better to try on the mask first, but the dive shops seem to want about $100 for a similar TUSA mask, that fit me very well. I would like to save some money , but I also want to make sure this mask fits. Ive been snorkeling with a cheap US Divers mask, that leaks a bit. Do you think this mask will be a good choice for me?
Hello Mike, Thank you for your inquiry! The TUSA M-24 Powerview is fitted for Medium to Large Faces (110 lbs+). All of the TUSA masks in this size range have the same mask skirt size for Medium to Large Faces (110 lbs+). So the other TUSA mask you tried on would have fit the same as the Powerview. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/029160/TUSA-M-24-Powerview-Mask.html If you have any questions or wish to place an order, please call us at 1-800-247-2822.

Round Edge Skirt
TUSA's Round Edge Skirt features a proprietary round edge cross-sectionally shaped skirt. This rounded edge results in a soft fit that suppresses pressure and reduces creasing left on the face. The 'planar fit, instead of linear fit' silicone skirt maintains great fit and unprecedented comfort.
TUSA's patented 3-D strap is a true three-dimensional design that snugly fits against the head's natural curvature. The 3-D strap offers unprecedented comfort and fit unlike standard flat mask straps.
Angle Strap Adjustor
The 5 Angle Strap Adjustor allows for a five position micro-adjustment on both the left and right sides of the mask. This enables vertical (up/down) and horizontal (left/right) pressure on the face to be delicately adjusted for the optimum fit.
Corrective lenses are offered on several styles of masks. This option allows the diver to choose right and left lens powers in both a variety of diopters for maximum flexibility and for a custom fit.
Mask, Snorkel and Fin Care
Q: Should I clean my new mask?
During the production process silicone film can form on the glass lenses which can cause increased fogging. A toothpaste or a very mild abrasive liquid can be used to gently scrub the inside of the lens to remove this silicone layer. This will help to reduce excessive fogging on a new mask.
Q: What causes my mask to fog, is something wrong?
As mentioned above when new it is typically the silicone film from production. However, over time oils and contaminants can build up on the lenses causing a layer on top of the lens that will increase fogging. We recommend cleaning the mask occasionally with a mild liquid soap or detergent to remove this build up. This can help to reduce fogging that may occur with a dirty lens.
Q: How do I stop my mask from fogging?
Aftermarket anti-fog solutions are available and can be used on TUSA masks. Companies such as JAWS, McNett, and 500psi amongst others offer suitable products. Please contact your local TUSA retailer for their recommendation.
Q: I have CrystalView AR/UV lenses in my mask, any additional care required?
Masks such as the M-211 Freedom One PRO and M-28S Geminus PRO are equipped with CrystalView AR/UV lenses. These optical glass lenses are treated with a multi-layer proprietary anti-reflective and ultraviolet coating that is hardened for durability. Although not likely, care should be taken when using these lenses as the coating could possibly be scratched or removed. The coating is on the outside of the mask lens, which allows cleaning and use of an anti-fog solution on the inside without issue. Take care to read the included care and maintenance information with each CrystalView AR/UV equipped mask.
Q: How should I care for my mask, snorkel and fins?
After use rinse your equipment in fresh clean water and dry thoroughly before storing. Take care that any purge valves or snorkel tops are free from sand and debris that can cause leakage. Store in a cool dry place away from heat and sun. Do not dry your equipment in direct UV light for extended periods of time.
Q: Can I get parts for my Mask, Fins or Snorkel?
TUSA offers a variety of straps, buckles and accessories for replacement if a part is broken or damaged. These are available as TUSA CARE genuine accessories and must be purchased from your authorized retailer.
