Mask Scubapro Synergy2

Appeared in DIVER June 2015
LAST MONTH I CONDUCTED A GROUP TEST of masks, comparing the field of view using a wall-mounted matrix (Vision Variability, May). With 22 models to play with, I thought I’d seen everything mask-designers could throw at me, but Scubapro has surprised me with its latest offering – the Synergy2 Trufit.

Mask Atomic Aquatics Frameless 2

Appeared in DIVER February 2015
My seemingly addictive and unending quest to find the ultimate mask for my diving needs continues unabated.
I’ve tested a procession of models over the past few years, some with super-soft silicon skirts, others with crystal-clear lenses. I’ve included single- and twin-lens designs, and even taken one under water with a torsion-bar to keep those lenses in line.
This time round I’ve tried out the Atomic Aquatics Frameless 2 model to see how it performed on a tropical overseas trip. more...

MASK Aqua Lung Look HD

Appeared in DIVER November 2014
“Hi, my name’s Nigel and I’m a maskaholic!” Regular readers of DIVER Tests must have thought I’d been cured, because I haven’t reviewed one for what feels like ages. Alas, my addiction is still rampant.
I got my latest fix on a trip to Egypt on which I took an Aqua Lung mask along for the ride. It was its latest Look HD model, sporting what is currently a very trendy white colour scheme. more...

Mask Scubapro Synergy Twin Trufit

Appeared in DIVER June 2014
I’ve tested a few masks lately. Some offer real advantages to the user – masks with prescription ophthalmic inserts and masks with special glass lenses that give the brightest, clearest view into the underwater world.
These specialist masks are of little or no use if they don’t fit the intended wearer’s face. Everyone’s face is different.
Some, like mine, are wrinkly with a large nose; most people’s faces are smooth-skinned with an average-sized proboscis; some are long and thin; others wide and rotund.
This limits mask choice, because the most important factor is a good fit and should be your priority, rather than style, colour or special features. more...

Prescription Mask Aquaviz UTS Pro Core & Inzerts

IF YOU’RE A CONSTANT WEARER of prescription eyewear or suffering from the effects of ageing and need glasses for close-up work, you’ll know the difficulties encountered in trying to find a solution to take under water.
Single-lens masks pose a particular problem, especially for those of us who need a progressive prescription to correct near, intermediate or far vision.
If you need glasses for reading or computer work, you’ll appreciate the problems associated with bi-focal prescriptions and diving masks too.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your arms were just that little bit longer, so you could get your dive computer with large graphics into your sharp focus range?
It would be a far better solution if you could take a pair of glasses under water with your exact lens prescription.
Enter the Aquaviz UTS Pro Core mask and Inzert with ophthalmic lenses. more...

The Hollis M-1 Single Lens

Masks Hollis M-1 & M-3

Appeared in DIVER October 2013
As a photographer, I prefer black silicon-skirted masks, because this stops light interference from the sides and prevents me from seeing my eye reflected in the viewfinder as I try to capture the “big shot”. Technical divers prefer these masks for similar reasons.
Enter Hollis, the technical diving equipment manufacturer from across the pond.

Mask TUSA Freedom Ceos

Appeared in DIVER September 2013
Despite the importer choosing to send me a mask that made me look like Tonto’s best mate, or Delboy and Rodney on their way to a fancy-dress party, I was knocked out that it asked me what strength lenses I needed – and by the fact that it could supply them from stock. more...
