Considering the size and shape of this mask it is still a low drag mask. The visibility to either side is very good. My only small complaint is the skirt. It isnt as comfortable as the newer high tech silicone skirts. I do not regret getting this mask at all since I prefer peripheral vision to slight discomfort.
This snorkel definitely remained dry. I just returned from a dive trip and was happy to see this snorkel work perfectly in choppy water. It is also extremely easy to clear. One drawback is the attachment gizmo for attaching to the mask. It was impossible to operate, always stuck. I eventually threw that away and now use a detachable silicone ring.
The knife is still too new to assess. Hopefully, the extra expense for titanium will be worth it. Only time will tell.
The knife wraps are much more comfortable than the straps that come with the knife.
Great for traveling and hanging in hotel showers.
In order to minimize dangling hoses I went with the Airlink. I only wish it had a yellow decal to identify it as an alternate air source.
I prefer this BCD to most others due to its clean design. Less things dangling causing unnecessary drag is very important to me. It is very comfortable and the back carrying handle is a big plus. At depth in a prone position the back bladder is a little funky when rolling onto either shoulder. The air in the bladder tends to shift to the uphill side. Not uncomfortable or annoying, just different.
The computer worked as advertised. The instruction manual is a bad joke. It is very small with tiny print and the pages fall out of the book due to poor binding glue/material. Recommend downloading the PDF version and putting the pages in a binder. The RF transmitter is severely limited in range, 4-6 max depending on relative location. Hence, using the computer to read a dive partners air supply is out of the question.
The straps were easy to install and were very comfortable. In the water the straps make donning the fins in sandy, surf conditions very quick and easy. Sizing might be the only issue. Although I wear size 10 and was told to buy large straps, the straps would be too loose if I didnt wear a 3mm boot.
