It seems the full face snorkel mask concept is a big success – One of the biggest dive and snorkeling gear manufacturer, the Head-Mares introduced recently their own Head Sea Vu Dry full face snorkel mask. Get to know from this short post what is going on this market!
The first : Easybreath full face snorkel mask
The first widespread full face snorkeling mask is definitely the Tribord Easybreath from Decathlon, we also posted about it last year: decathlon-easybreath
To be honest, when we met the Tribord Easybreath mask at first time, we were smiling a bit. It seemed weird and we looked funny with the masks on our head 🙂 We have not really believed in its success… But after the first skeptic thoughts we have seen more and more people wearing these masks and also read reviews from satisfied snorkelers. So the Easybreath solved a real problem – it gave the chance to the people – who do not want to get their face wet in the water or have problems with breathing through the mouth while wearing a classic mask and snorkel – to feel themselves in the water more comfortable and safe.
After the Easybreath success more and more companies came out with their own full face snorkel mask, so there is a wide selection on the amazon in different prize categories. Normally these mask are available in two sizes (S/M and L/XL). I found only the original Easybreath in children size (XS). Some models are already equipped with action camera mount.
