Masks

High quality masks in a wide range of sizes and styles for scuba diving and snorkeling. All our masks feature a high quality silicone skirt, tempered glass lenses, and durable straps and buckles. Variety of styles to fit all sorts of facial shapes and sizes including kids, youth, narrow, wide, and even a few that fit large facial features such as a large nose.

HOW TO CHOOSE A MASK:

Skirt: The skirt of the mask is the part that rests directly on your face and it is important that it is made of high quality silicone in order to ensure a comfortable fit and good seal. All of our masks are made with soft or very soft silicone to ensure the highest quality. A low quality mask will have a skirt made with low quality, thicker silicone or PVC (plastic) and forming a good seal is very difficult, especially noticeable in cold or temperate waters.

Vision: Masks will have either a single window  (one piece of glass) or double window (two pieces of glass) that make up the lens of the mask. Some masks also have windows on the sides. There are no advantages or disadvantages between the number of windows, it is mostly personal preference. The size of the window will determine how much you see but will also determine the overall size of the mask, so while a larger window will provide the best vision it may not fit on a smaller face. Also with a two window mask, there will be a dividing frame between the two windows which may irritate your nose or forehead if you have larger facial features. 

Volume: The volume of a mask is directly related to the volume of water that may enter a mask. A low volume mask will be easier to clear of unwanted water, however will usually fit closer to the face which may cause discomfort if you have larger factial features. A high volume mask will allow more water to enter, will take more effort to clear of unwanted water, but will allow for more room for larger forehead or nose features.

Type of Fit: Medium/Average, Small, or Large. Most people know if they fit in either of these categories based on how they purchase other items such as sunglasses, hats, etc.

Lens: Tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into smaller granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass creates. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

Care & Maintenance: After using your mask, especially in salt water or chlorine, be sure to rinse well with clean, fresh water to rid the mask of chlorine and salty residue. Air-dry, then store in its plastic case, out of direct sunlight. Prior to using your mask, clean well with a mild, non-abrasive soap. Click here for a short video regarding mask preparation.
