Diving Masks and Scuba Masks at Divers Direct for the best prices guaranteed!

Have you ever been snorkeling or scuba diving and your diving mask started leaking? It probably means that you were improperly fitted for your dive mask. Fit is absolutely the most essential element in selecting a dive mask. A scuba mask must be comfortable and must have a watertight seal. There are several tests to see if the diving mask you choose fits properly. The first one is the dry fit test. Look up while putting the scuba mask on, without securing the strap. The mask should touch all parts of your face evenly. Now do the same thing while trying to inhale gently. This is the suction test. You should notice a tight seal. Try these two simple tests to know you have the correct fit.

Other things to consider when looking for the perfect Dive Mask are construction, size, and lens. Dive masks are generally made of silicone because it's non-allergenic and resists deterioration. Frames are generally made of hard plastic to reduce weight and to lengthen the life of the dive masks.

There are many frames targeted for specific face shapes. Special models are aimed at smaller faces, especially geared for women and youngsters. Low-volume diving masks are another option in sizes and shapes. This design uses less space which moves the lens closer to your eyes. Low-volume offers more peripheral vision, decreases distortion, and enhances light.

Over the years lenses on dive masks have improved dramatically. Lenses are made of tempered glass, not plastic. This is to prevent distortion and fogging, minimize scratching, and to allow vision correction. There are also single lens, double lens and 4 lens dive masks. Single lens dive masks may be best for those who do not need vision correction. Double lens diving masks is a good option for people who need corrective lenses. Many manufacturers create masks that are compatible with prescription lenses. Some manufacturers have created 4 lens dive masks. This greatly improves range of vision. The two lenses have been placed on the sides of the dive masks to extend side views. Cressi-sub has created a teardrop shape lens which assists in creating an extended downward view. There is an option for everyone so that they may enjoy their dive.

After purchasing a dive mask it is important to do a pre-dive cleaning. This will help eliminate problems with fogging during a dive. Wash the dive mask with warm soapy water to remove the manufacturer's preservative lubricant. Scour the inside of the lens with a mild abrasive cleaner. The lens must be thoroughly cleaned in order to prevent fogging. Mask scrub workes great at getting rid of the "film" of grease on a new mask.  Don't forget the defog and your ready to go.
