Head Mares Sea VU Dry Snorkel Mask Visitor Review
My husband and I tried the Head Mares Sea VU Dry Snorkel masks and we wanted to leave our review. While they are quality made and had some definite benefits, we also experienced every disadvantage described on your review page.
My husband couldn't stand the feeling of re-breathing his own air - felt stuffy and unpleasant.
I knew before buying that I couldn't dive down, but didn't think I'd miss it as much as I did.
The mask also felt big and cumbersome on. It's so much easier to just remove the snorkel when speaking to someone out of the water versus having to remove entire face mask every time. And of course, the more you mess with taking the mask off and on repeatedly, the greater the chance of leakage.
I did like the lack of fogging, as I'm struggling with that right now, having bought a prescription mask that continues to fog no matter how many times I scrub with toothpaste, use baby shampoo, spit, etc. It is driving me nuts!
I also liked the built-in dry snorkel. It worked well. On the Mares full face snorkel mask, it was very difficult to attach and detach each time - they recommend doing so before/after each use. So hopefully they tweak that feature on a future version.
