I was shopping for a replacement to a long loved diving mask that is not longer made. The closest I could come to when searching my local dive shops and online was the Tilos mask. Things I love about this mask: The fit to my face is spot on. Being classic black, I do not have to worry about discoloring like had happed with my previous clear silicone masks. The purge valve in the base of the nose works without issue at 20 feet, hopefully this Summer I will get into deeper water. The silicone of the mask is very comfortable to wear for extended use. The price is reasonable. On the bad side, or areas of concern: The strap for the mask is considerably thinner than any of my previously used dive masks. I am considering purchasing a thicker strap to see if the buckles will accommodate, but that is the biggest knock against the overall rating for a 3/5. If the strap fails in a dive, it will potentially ruin the dive. The design of the strap is also different and disappointing from the typical head strap, being more like a webbing instead of the typical high/low split, but hopefully can be resolved by purchasing a heavier duty traditional strap. Until I can swim through my first wreck of the Summer, I will carry a backup mask as I put this new mask through the paces. If it had a thicker strap, this would have easily been a 4-5/5.
This worked great and love the purge valve. I have a new mask from Tilos without the purge and will look to give it away to a friend.
Frame came off after 2 dives, but still holds airtight seal. I had 2 deep dives over 100' and I love it, much better visibility. I don't really care if the frame came off if it still works.
This is a great mask. Make sure that you get the one with the purge valve. I swam a mile the other day and my eyes (very sensitive to the pool water) NEVER GOT ONE DROP OF WATER IN THEM. As any water entered the mask, rarely, all I had to do was do a mild snort and the water was gone. Great vision. Best of all was the company, House of Scuba that I bought it from. I will be buying all of my water gear from them in the future.
the clear is great for bring in the light
Fits well, work great
I have had this type of mask for years and love it. My fist mask is 10 years old and still functional just ugly and needed replaced.
