I purchased four masks for my family early in March as we were going to Maui to snorkel the last week in March. We were not interested in renting used equipment for the week. I figured that the cost to rent for four for a little over a week would pay for ½ the cost to buy your own new equipment. I purchased masks and snorkels at Divers Supply. One mask had a defect that allowed water into the mask, which is now in the process of being replaced – no hassles. For the remaining three masks they performed flawlessly. For hours at a time and several days in a row they provided an excellent fit and view underwater. We Googled to learn techniques to keep your lens from fogging up and it worked great which allowed us to focus on the tropical fish, turtles and underwater environment we were observing. Upon return I will be maintaining them before storage to ensure future performance. Somewhere it was advised to test the mask prior to use which I will be doing in the future to avoid problems while on vacation. I have a pool but it’s a bit too cold for that test method. For the price and performance it is a great value.
