This thing is awesome. I bought it after my girlfriend and I returned from our first ever trip to Cancun. After a mostly failed snorkeling excursion there, I wanted to practice more for next time. This thing has helped me tremendously. I used it for the first time in Key West, Florida, and it was amazing. I swam out from the beach towards some large rock formations and got to see some neat sealife.
The build of the mask is fine and doesn't feel cheaply made. It can fog up sometimes, but that is not the masks fault. The straps can be a little tricky at first, and isn't the easy thing in the world to adjust, but once you've got it set you can pretty much forget about it. The seal works well and water doesn't get into the mask very much if at all. The snorkel tube is also pretty well made. The flex join really helps in maneuvering around in the water, and the splashproof dry guard does its job pretty well. I have never had water go into it unless I was explicitly diving down into the water. It fits well on my girlfriend as well, but the mouthpiece is a little large for her.
Overall I highly recommend this snorkel mask set for anyone looking to try out snorkeling, or just needing a backup set. It works well and has opened me up to an entirely new experience. We are going to the Dominican Republic next, and I can't wait to use it there in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean!
