A comfortable diving mask with proper fit is an essential piece of scuba gear — it will make any good dive even better. Our 2019 scuba diving Gear Buyers Guide will help you find the best scuba diving mask to fit your diving style. Here is our guide to the newest scuba diving masks.
The injected silicone skirt of the Breeze has a double edge for a comfortable, leak-free seal on your cheeks and forehead. The quick-disconnect buckles swivel up and down and have simple adjustments. The mask can be fitted with prescription lenses available in diopters from -1.5 to -8.0.
Aqua Lung Reveal X1
Super soft, crystal-clear silicone and an ergonomic skirt profile make the Reveal dry and comfortable, and the innovative construction makes it ultra light. New buckles attach directly to the silicone skirt with a single quick-button release system, and the mask is equipped with a spherical silicone strap for a precise fit.
Aqua Lung Reveal X2
Comfort and visibility are the hallmarks of the dual-lens Reveal X2, with an ultra-soft silicone skirt that molds itself smoothly to your face for a wide-angle, leak-free fit. The buckles attach directly to the skirt for optimal fit and comfort, and the large release button is easy to operate, even with thick gloves.
Cressi Liberty Quattro
You can enjoy a panoramic view, thanks to Liberty Quattro’s four-window design. All lenses are tempered glass, and the skirt is made of hypoallergenic silicone to ensure both comfort and a watertight seal. Strap adjustment is quick and simple with buckle buttons that are easy to use, even wearing gloves.
The Zeus features Cressi’s Integrated Dual Frame Technology system that allows the silicone skirt to be joined to the frame without interrupting the curvature continuity. This results in a much smaller mask with a hydrodynamic shape that offers an excellent field of view. The micrometric adjustable buckles are easy to use, even with gloves.
For stealthy hunters and recreational divers alike, the Bold mask features three camouflaged skirt options to match any environment. Performance-minded buyers will appreciate the low-volume, twin-lens design, as well as the compression molded skirt mated to ratcheting, swiveling buckles that help dial in a perfect fit.
Ist Sports MP-112 Burano
A single lens offering an expansive field of view, combined with an ultra-soft silicone skirt that seals tight against the face without sacrificing comfort, makes the Burano mask a reliable choice for avid scuba divers. The easy-grab nose pocket makes for easy equalizing, and a skirt-mounted buckle system ensures the perfect fit.
Ist Sports MP-201 Proteus
The dual-lens Proteus offers a large field of view, yet its internal volume is minimal because the scratch-resistant lenses sit close to the eyes. IST uses advanced painting technology to make the frame look sharp, with tinted lenses that ensure UV protection and enhance color underwater.
Scubapro Synergy Mini
The Synergy Mini is designed with a smaller frame and skirt to accommodate smaller faces. The silicone in the skirt is thinner and more pliable where it contours the face for a comfortable seal and thicker and sturdier near the frame for additional support and rigidity. This dual-lens mask has a low internal volume and a wide field of view.
Scubapro Zoom Evo
This low-volume, dual-lens mask makes it easy to swap in optical lenses in minutes without using tools thanks to an innovative lens-change system. It also features a quick-disconnect for the mask strap. Available in colors to match other Scubapro gear. Optical lenses are sold separately and available from -1.0 to -8.0 and +1.0 to +3.0.
The single lens Italica provides a wide view of the underwater world through Ultra Clear tempered optical glass. The polycarbonate frame is durable, and the soft silicone skirt features different thicknesses to ensure a comfortable, watertight fit on a variety of face shapes. The textured nose pocket makes equalizing easy.
Add a rainbow of color choices to your diving with the Touch single lens mask. Featuring a frameless design, the mask is compact in size, which also reduces its internal volume. The liquid silicone skirt uses different thickness to guarantee a comfortable, watertight fit. The dual button strap adjustment lets you easily fine-tune fit.
The single-lens Ceto is available with two mirrored lens options. The orange-hued Tangine is designed for optimal visual contrast and reduced UV wavelength penetration, and the purple-tinted Rubicon is crafted to minimize optical distortion for low light levels. Both are mated to a soft silicone skirt outfitted with easy-adjusting push-button buckles.
The Wai is a twin-lens mask with a sturdy external frame married to a soft double feathered silicone skirt for maximum softness and outstanding seal. The long-hair-friendly elastic strap is designed for a custom fit and offers a smart integrated snorkel keeper. The mask is available in three frame colors: steel blue, black silicone and magenta.
Tusa M1003 Freedom Elite
This wide-view mask features a single lens design that delivers excellent visibility at depth. The frame has minimal internal volume for easy clearing, and the soft Round Edge skirt provides a comfortable fit while reducing creasing on the face. Available in a variety of colors with a black or clear skirt.
Tusa M1001 Freedom HD
The Freedom HD mask skirt features a dimpled surface with varied silicone thicknesses and stability ridges that work together to both improve fit and comfort and increase performance. The large frame and single lens deliver an expansive view of the underwater world. Available in a variety of colors with a black or clear skirt.
Tusa 2001S Paragon Mask
Zeagle’s new Scope mask line is designed for durability, comfort and easy customization. The over-molded frameless design is rugged enough to take the toughest conditions, and the one-button buckle release makes strap adjustments quick and easy. The Mono’s wide single lens offers a panoramic view, and comes in three sizes for perfect fit.
