Full face diving mask


#1

who uses them and is it worth spending the big money to get one thanks


#2

Only in the colder months…

More hassle to get on but much more comfy over a long time… breath through nose, snivel swallow, no dry mouth etc

I use mine in the cold and normal reg/mask in the warmer times


#3

I’ve only had a go with one once and found it a bit claustrophobic. Much preferred a simple mask. But that’s just me. Probably a better option in really cold water though.


#4

Iv got one as lbd said only use it in the colder months there big & bulky the current can rip it off at times not a silly idea having one but I wouldn’t spend a fortune on one


#5

the ones ive seen are over 1000 to like 1500 dont think i can justify it but if they were amazing etc i could treat myself


#6

Iv got a Neptune 1 they are expensive but I didn’t buy it it came with a dredge I imported if I was going to buy 1 id probably get one of these
