Reviewer: Peter W.Upgrading to Ultraclear glass - Is the ultra clear worth the price? Having used the mask for both snorkel and dives earlier this month the answer is yes. Objects appear sharper and a bit brighter (I dive wearing contacts). The skirt of my older atomic mask was beginning to wear and it was time for a change. This mask is easy to adjust and very comfortable. Range of view is excellent. The red refraction that you see in side view photos is not visible when wearing the mask. I ordered on a Friday and the mask arrived on Tuesday with the standard free shipping. The case is easy to use but a bit bulkier than necessary. Summary: Pricey, but worth it.
Reviewer: Peter WeberAtomic SV1 Contour Snorkel Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I have used an SV2 for years and always enjoyed it. The purge valve remains pliable and seals well. Bought the SV1 for my wife to use for snorkeling in calmer water. Both snorkels have an easy to use adjustable slide that can be slipped off a mount that fits over most mask straps. It also has a very comfortable mouthpiece.
Reviewer: Michael B S.Outstanding Mask - I love this mask so much I own 2 for Cave and Tech diving and one on my shelf in case I have to replace one. They are incredibly comfortable, great viewing area, nice adjustment system and great optics. Ive tried two other brands over the years and have settled on this type. If I ever found out they were going to discontinue this mask, Id buy 10 of them.
Reviewer: Kevin R.Prepare mask before using - The mask performs well. Mask feels comfortable. Did have problems with fogging. Spent considerable amount of time preparing mask to remove silicone from the lens with lighter and toothpaste before it performed as expected. I spear fish,the single lens did perform better than a two lens mask.
Reviewer: Kevin R.leaks - The vacumm test preformed well (out of water with no strap) until you squinted or simulated getting saltwater in your eye. This type of action allowed water to seep. No mask had ever done that after 42 years of diving. I had to return mask. However, the mask is well constructed. Just wasnt right for me.
Reviewer: Mark H.Excellent Fit, Good vision - Purchased without having the option of trying on anywhere - but am pleased with the mask. Very comfortable enclosure and strap arrangement, and as is advertised - great vision. The silicone seemed a little less thick (maybe just more pliable?) than previous masks Ive had, but I had no issues with sealing and equalizing pressure. I liked the choice of colors and carrying box as well.
Reviewer: sharon b.Love it! - The mask is so comfortable on my face and the lenses have such clarity. The moment I put it on, it felt wonderful. So glad to have made this purchase. Bought another one for my son.
Reviewer: Maxwell H.Meh... - The lens shape/field of vision is great. The skirt pushes on my upper lip during the dive. By the end its a little sore and feels great to take off. I really wish this mask fit me better. All other aspects are great, but fit is paramount in masks. I think my lower face juts out too much for the design. I have since tried the Tusa line, specifically the Freedom and Concerno. If you lean more towards your Neanderthal roots in facial structure, maybe not this one. The Tusa Concerno will be my next adventure.
Reviewer: jessica f.Great mask! - This mask is great! Feels soft and very comfortable!
Reviewer: Richard W.Scuba Mask - I received my new scuba mask very quickly and as advertised.
Reviewer: Keith Sollenbergervery small but functional - I thought this was a childs size mask when I unpacked it. The lenses were very close to my eyes. However the skirt was very soft on the skin and sealed great. The lenses were clear and virtually never fogged. Peripheral visibility was impacted a bit, but not terribly. Clearing water from the mask was complicated a bit by the soft silicone skirt which easily got folded rather than laying flat, but never became an issue. Id recommend this mask for people with average or smaller sized faces.
Reviewer: Jesse S.Not Used - received but have not used this yet. looks great and looks like great quality, will provide once i actually use it.
