Rating: For Those Who Dont Really Need A Snorkel
Reviewer: Ray T.,  - View all my reviews
this is the third pocket snorkel i have purchased. the others have fallen out of my bc pockets because theyre so small.....this i consider my faultoperator error. the good: it is small and very portable. you dont have to swim around with your snorkel dragging on one side of your mask. the bad: its really not a solid snorkel. the keeper mechanism will pull off, leaving the snorkel held in only by your biting on the mouthpiece. i am dubious that it might not hold in really rough seas when you would need it the most. my advice would be to buy one and carry it in very calm water situations. in more dicey swells, i would advise using a regular snorkel.

Rating: Pocket Semi-Dry Snorkel Clear
Reviewer: Irina Z.,
The idea of the folding snorkel is excellent, however the implementation is not. You have to really apply force to fold it and then you have to put the sling over the folded snorkel. Its not convenient at all. Ive used to have another folding snorkel before (unfortunately, Ive lost it during my last diving trip) and it had a hard plastic piece that was a folding part, the snorkel was folding almost like a pocket knife and stayed folded, no sling required.

I cant stand a snorkel dangling from my mask, but this one is easy to carry all folded up in a BC pocket, and then pop on when needed. I always appreciate a snorkel when Im bobbing around, waiting to be hauled out!

took this on a recent trip to mexico so that i wouldnt have to have a snorkel dangling off the mask all week. (most divers didnt carry a snorkel at allpadi would be appaled) fits easily in a bc pocket, works well. just what the dive doctor ordered.

Rating: Bottom Line: "I would buy it again"
Reviewer: Robert L.,  - View all my reviews
My son and I went to Roatan and dove with the standard snorkel hanging off of our heads all of the time. A friend recommended switching to a foldable snorkel and simply keeping it in a pocket on the BC. This model from Oceanic is well engineered and works like a charm. In advance you simply place a very small mating disk (similar to rebust velcro) to the strap of your mask (less than the size of a quarter) and when you want your snorkel on the surface BAM! you whip it out of its BC pocket and attach to your mask strap and you are in business. Super quick and ends the presence of a useless underwater snorkel.

Rating: Foldable snorkel
Reviewer: Janelle Sanda,  - View all my reviews
I hate having a snorkel hanging on my head while diving, but like to have one available just in case you end up spending prolonged time on the surface. I didnt actually have to use the snorkel on my recent trip, but it folded up and fit into a small BC pocket. The super velcro-type attachment to mask strap also makes it easy to secure in place when needed.

Rating: Great, flexible snorkel
Reviewer: Larry Eggert,  - View all my reviews
I now own 3 or these. I keep one in my BCD, use 1 for snorkeling at the gym pool and keep one in my travel pack. They are compact, durable, clear easily and are "semi-dry". They also breathe easily. That means you get a little water in, but most drains and it is very easy to clear. Highly recommended!
