Genesis Tri-View Panoramic Mask
Rating: Genesis-Tri-View-Panoramic-Mask Love the clear view! 02/20/2013

i was a bit wary of buying a mask online i couldnt try on, but this mask was an excellent fit. it gels nicely to larger faces (when one doesnt put on sunscreen), and i think my stray hair was responsible for it fogging up more than i liked. (tried soap, toothpaste, and defog s, all of which worked for about the first 10 minutes and then i had to defog again). i could have tightened it up alot more for a better seal but was only doing short snorkel trips and liked not getting a headache/hairache from the straps. the best part is we got the clear one, so you can see everything in every direction without the mask obstructing your view at all. i tried my old mask a few times and it now feels clastrauphobic in comparison. it adapted to my old snorkels too without any problem. the price was really good too (on sale and discounted), so i wasnt expecting very much, but the value was excellent. plus the case it comes with was perfect for stashing cookies and fruit from the buffet. hee.

Genesis Tri-View Panoramic Mask
Rating: Genesis-Tri-View-Panoramic-Mask Handy and Hardy! 02/20/2013

These 3 little super heavy duty ziplock bags were excellent for cameras, keys, and can fit a couple of passports or cards and cash if you need them too... the question then becomes where does one put them? Were snorkelling enthusiasts and I have plenty of room in a bathing suit to stash them, but if you wear a bikini you cant really take them out with you. An eyelet or loop on them so you could attach them to you would have been very useful, but thats a bit much to expect from a 2.50cent baggie (I think they were 3 for 6$ or something?) Anyway, they came in handy in and out of the water and after 2 weeks of heavy use in Jamaica are all still water tight and good to go. I assume the plastic will eventually wear down or get punctured, but we found them FAR more useful than more fancy and bulkier dry gear boxes. Highly recommend taking some along on any trip!
