    Aloha SwimOutlet,
    The mask fit well and purge valve works well,
    However the mask fogs up and there is no way to prevent it.

    I both used spit, and bottled anti-fogger from a scuba shop and it still fogged up.
    The type of clear plastic used for the front has little no surface tension.
    This lack of surface tension does not allow the spit or anti-fogger to adhere properly to prevent fogging

    Nose purge good.... fog bad....
    Brudas no buy this one

    Love the wide screen visibility and this mask does not leak at all.  It is comfortable and the air/water pressure seems to stay regulated nicely inside the mask.  My only complaint is that it seems to steam up a bit quicker than the masks with two separate eye sections, but that is easily managed with a quick spit stop.

    Good quality mask easy to fit bi- focal lenses either side of the purge.This is my third mask unfortunately my good one is now at the bottom of the Red Sea, luckily i carry a spare.Requires a good spit cleaner to keep from fogging up but can be easily cleaned under water by lifting the bottom of the mask shake the head to allow the inside of the mask to be covered and then exhale through the nose .

    Used this several times for snorkeling.  Good seal and comfort, good range of view.  The mask fogs somewhat much like any other.  I thought the nose purge was a gimmick but it really does work quite well.  Can't comment on its utility for scuba, but works great as a snorkeling mask one step up from the $8 variety found at Walmart.

    The mask offers great viewing with one lens ,  it is also very easy to clear either small or large amounts of water, with that said it also puts lots of pressure on your face, and when free diving I found it most uncomfortable most pressure was at the base of my nose, would not recommend if you spend any amount of time more then a few feet below the surface, how ever your field of vision is much better then some mask offer( I did not even try to scuba with this mask I use another I have instead won't even chance it while down in Cozumel )

    To be honest, I am so pleased with my goggles that I haven't used this mask yet but I plan to on my next vacation. They definitely are as solid and well made as described. The shipper was very quick. I would buy from this person again.

    The mask is air-tight.  It doesn't leak any water during swimming.  Great Mask.  I wear it when I am doing lap swimming.  Very comfortable.

    This mask is great.  A good clear view and easy to adjust under water.  I love being able to clear without going vertical.  I would recommend this mask to any diver/swimmer.

    This mask does not leak.  I have found most masks leak.  This one does not.  It does fog.  I used spit to try to prevent it.  I found that to have always worked in the past.  It did not prevent fogging with this mask.
