FINIS Snorkel Dry Top
This device does keep out the water. However, it seems to restrict air flow more than I expected. I used it a few times, but now have gone back to using my snorkel without the dry top adapter.

glad i bought this
i can't swim without my snorkel (I have COPD) but the snorkel inhibits swimming the dolphin kick properly because i take in water. this little gadget enables me to do the dolphin kick without worrying about the drowning feeling when i take in water through my snorkel.
Limits air flow too much.
Limits air flow too much to be functional for medium sized sets. I swim masters and I do Ironmans.
Keeps water out.
Works well to keep water out. If head is at waterline and snorkel is submerged the water pressure keeps equalized well and works. The dry top does constrict the airflow a bit making it tougher to breath. Customers buying should be aware of the trade off before buying. It does what it advertises but you need to work harder at breathing with this item.
FINIS Snorkel Dry Top
The inner piece gets stuck and keeps my daughter from actually getting the breath in. I will be wanting to return this item. Maybe she just received a defective one.
Best for keeping out the water during flip turns
While I love my Finis Snorkel, I continued to get water in the area below the mouthpiece after a flip turn, which I would then suck in (VERY annoying and UNCOMFORTABLE) - I purchased this Dry Top and PROBLEM SOLVED!
The dry top was a loose fit on the snorkel. I had to use silicon to secure and seal it. Also it restricted my breathing so I removed it to continue my swimming. I would not recommend it.

Dry Top Works Very Well
This item works very well and makes my freestyle swim much more effective. You should make it more clear what this item is an addition to the snorkel and not another snorkel with a top. Because this item is near the bottom of the page of snorkel gear, I didn't make the leap that I needed this item also.
Keeping it just in case
Fit my Finis snorkel fine and does keep water out. It does reduce air flow due to creating a smaller opening at the tube end. This bothered me enough I took it off for time being. Keeping on the shelf in the event I decide to boost the aerobic benefits of using it. For now enjoying the extra oxygen.

This device is so much better than what I used to know as a kid.
Finis snorkel dry top
I loved swimming with my finis swimmers snorkel in the pool as I trained for my first triathlon! However, the tri swim was going to be in the ocean so I thought I would need the dry top....Huge mistake! Couldn't figure out why I was struggling, until I thought to pull the dry top off halfway into my swim. Luckily I made up time because I could actually BREATHE a full breath in. Maybe I will try to train in the pool w/ it to improve lungs
Hard to breathe
I bought this to add to my Finis snorkel and work on streamline. However, any faster workouts I find myself stopping and taking the snorkel out to breathe heavier/faster. The breathing seems like you really have to pull the air in, which is hard when going faster. Not my favorite, gonna try without dry piece tomorrow.

It is i must have when you are on a swim team and do a lot laps and turns.
It is used on top of your snorkel to keep out water when you make you turns and when swimming under the water.
Not so good
I tried this snorkel too and felt it inhibited my breathing. Took it off immediately.

Finis Dry Top Accessory
This is well worth using. I was getting water in the snorkel and this keeps me dryer. Think it is a necessary piece to add to this snorkel.
I am an older swimmer that just wanted a splash guard for the top of my snorkel. I don't do flip turns or swim in choppy waters. I found that as built the Dry Top restricted the amount of air I could breath in to the point of shortness of breath and was unpleasant. I modified it by cutting out the float inside the Dry Top and found that it did a decent job of keeping splashes from going down the snorkel and allowed almost the same amount of air intake as without it on the end of my snorkel.

Great for Beginners!
I have never used a snorkel before and when I bought my Finis snorkel without a purge valve, I was sad that I wouldn't get to use it because I just couldn't get the hang of it. But as soon as I bought this cheap attachment, I can do everything I need to do, even flip turns!
I have both the dry top and the cardio cap! I love them both. Not a single problem with either one. I used the hot water to fit the dry top on and went out to the pool and used it!!
Too hard to breath with it on
I had a great deal of trouble breathing with it on. I know that it would make my breathing stronger if I continued to use it, but it took all of the joy away from swimming because I had to struggle so much. It is well made and it fit the snorkel well after using the hot water to soften both.
As explained in my Swim Snorkel review, I am using this to help build my breathing confidence in the pool.By knowing that the water will not get into my lungs, sure takes a lot of fear away and allows me to relax and REALLY enjoy learning to swim.I have been caught swimming with my head too low and gotten a splash of water into the snorkel, but as instructed (and keeping the grim reaper at bay), I raised my face up a bit, but not out of the water and gave a huge exhale and the water was blown out of the catch area and back up the snorkel tube back into the pool and it NEVER even entered my mouth. I did not stop swimming and or die!!
