Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel High Quality, Works Very Well - Completely Dry! 07/27/2012

My wife uses this Oceanic snorkel and it is definitely superior to my Tusa completely dry snorkel. The floats on the flapper valve do not accidentally close the valve if she leans her head or takes a deep breath, as my Tusa will do. When you do get water into the snorkel through the mouthpiece when getting into the water, it is very easily expelled or simply drains out of the purge valve at the bottom. I like this snorkel so much Im going to replace my Tusa with this model, since the Tusa will occasionally close with a deep breath and STAY shut. Neither my wife nor I have ever had this happen with the Oceanic.

Scuba Mask, Fin & Snorkel Backpack Bag
Rating: Scuba-Mask--Fin---Snorkel-Backpack-Bag Quality Item, Works Well, Mask Pocket a Bit Small 07/27/2012

This snorkel gear bag is constructed of high quality materials, appears to have superb workmanship, and performs its duties well. It isnt exactly the same as pictured (as of July 2012) though - the tie-downs have been removed on the actual bag. There are plenty of other loops for attaching various items, such as a larger mask bag. The mask pocket is a bit small for my liking since it is shallow front-to-back, making it necessary to deform the masks skirt significantly. It is probably fine for a short trip out to the snorkeling or dive site, but I definitely wouldnt leave my mask in the pocket for too long. Thats my only complaint, and since nearly all mask bags are too small (in my opinion) Im probably just overly and unjustifiably concerned about the mask skirt permanently deforming after being stuffed into a small pocket. Id still recommend this bag to friends with this one caveat. If the mask pocket was 1" larger front-to-back Id have given this 5 stars instead of four, and it would be nice to still have the tie downs as shown.
