Thenice Snorkel Mask Visitor Review
by Ivette Pieterick
I have a Thenice full face snorkel mask that I got on Ebay from China. I wanted to share my review of it.
I haven't had any problems with breathing even when I had to chase after a kid who was following a stingray into a bay. My breathing got heavy, and still there were no problems, nor did the mask make me hot.
Sometimes the mask fogs, but this is easy to fix by spraying a little baby shampoo and water on it.
I like it much more than my separate mask and snorkel because it gives me a much better view. It is easy to put on, breathing is easier, and clearing it out is easy.
I have a few issues with the mask though.
First, in order to talk to someone else, I have to pull the bottom of the mask away from my face.
Second, sometimes water gets in and I have to do the same thing to clear the water out.
Third, I can only dive down a few feet since I can't adjust the pressure.
Fourth, the straps that hold the mask to my face slip. I have to press the mask on my face and press it into the water to keep it on. And when I turn my head I have to hold the mask to my face so it does not come off. I think I can solve it by rolling the ends of the straps and sewing them so they stay put.
Lastly, the edge of my jaw gets a little sore from the pressure of the mask against it.
Overall, I am happy with my Thenice snorkel mask as it was much less expensive than the Tribord Easybreath.
I have a Go Pro mount on my Thenice mask, but I don't use it since I can't control the direction it is pointed for recording. Instead I hold my SJCAM Cube camera with waterproof case and leash in my hand.
