Questions and Answers for Apollo Bio Metal Pro Mask:
I need to buy a mask. I am 68" tall and weigh 350 pounds. As you can imagine, I need a mask that fits a very large face. Dive shop options are limited and forget the "fits most faces" thing. What mask would you recommend? Thank you for your help.

At a nominal 60 cc of internal volume, the lens sits close enough to produce an expansive 180° horizontal field of vision. Vision needs and body position are different when actually in the water. Traditional masks do not accommodate the need for increased lower vision. Like our award winning fins, we tweaked the angle to work with the most natural body position during a dive. The slight angle close to triples the lower viewing capability and results in a spectacular 120° vertical field of vision.
