Discovering The Truth About Diving

The Best Way to Pick a Scuba Mask

When choosing a diving mask it is vital that it fits your face nicely to make sure it is both comfy and leak-free. Without a good seal against the face you could devote much of your time cleaning the mask of water, while an uncomfortable mask detracts from your snorkeling experience – both lead to appreciating your dives less but simply because they distract you from your surroundings they are also potentially dangerous.

Discovering a mask that fits a person well is a simple matter and can be done by following this three step process. First, place the mask on your face but with the strap put out of the way. Inhale somewhat through the nose so that the minimal vacuum holds the mask on your face. Lastly, test the fit by gradually moving your head and it should stay in place in the event that you softly try and draw it away from your face. By the end of the evaluation you’ll have determined whether a scuba mask fits your face well or not, so now it is time to analyze additional characteristics.

Many masks on the market now have low internal quantity, meaning that the mask is convenient to utilize because the diver will not encounter much mask squeeze during the jump. This kind of mask is now usual and has a pocket for the nose that protrudes forward of the lenses and as well as low-volume the huge lenses allow to get a wider field of view.

Color is purely a matter of individual taste and you may have no taste in any respect. The original color for masks, and all diving gear in fact, was black as a result of employment of neoprene. Today silicone can be used instead for the masks, which are more flexible and less vulnerable to sun damage. Silicone may be provided clear or in a large number of colors as a result of utilization of coloring agents, but a lot of people still pick black. Nevertheless, some people claim that scuba masks made with clear silicone provide better visibility because of the higher quantity of sunshine that is allowed to enter.

Top quality diving masks have a silicone skirt that thins towards the edge, enabling a better and more comfortable fit from the skin of the face. Frequently you will view an additional skirt inside the top edge of the skirt which enables a much better seal. Its lack in the underside will be to enable water to drain quicker from the mask.

There are numerous occasions when you will have to fix your mask strap and so ensure that you find a mask which is simple to adjust. If you put on gloves when diving then ensure you can adjust it fast and simply while wearing the gloves. Remember to always carry an extra strap- it’s just one of the more prevalent equipment failures and also the lack of a reserve may possibly imply you have to stay on the vessel when everyone else is loving the submarine world.

These would be the most critical aspects to consider both when purchasing a new diving mask or using rental equipment from a dive center. By ensuring a superb fit you ensure your own personal comfort and security while a mixture of the additional factors will mean that you get many joyful years of service out of your scuba mask.
