With a tempered single lens glass design and a patented 3D wide split strap, the M1001 mask offers a quality view. It has an easy and quick adjustable buckle system and it presents low volume and low profile for better comfort. It’s a compact and lightweight mask design that prides itself in being technologically advanced with a five-position strap angle adjustment, micro adjustment fine tuning, and a dimpled skirt surface with varied silicone thickness.
It also presents a round edge skirt with a soft fit that suppresses pressure and reduces creases on the face with a planar fit instead of a linear one to avoid rings around the eyes after using it. It comes with an either black or clear silicone rubber mask skirt. The patented 3D wide split strap fits the natural curve on the head with no issues.
As well as coming in multiple colors, it also offers an easy to reach one hand nose pocket for ear equalization that allows you to dive deeper without presenting any ear discomfort or pain. It provides stability ridges and the materials and frame construction as well as the design are all high quality.
While it might look frameless, it isn’t, and on longer dive sessions the skirt under the nose might become shallow so any sudden movements might bring water up to your nose.
How to Use
Put it on like any other diving mask. The design has folding so the rotation buckle system is great for a quick and easy adjustment before going to the water. By default the mask is wide enough to cover the corners of the eye so there’s not much adjustment needed when trying on the mask.
A bit of fogging might be an issue in some cases but it can be treated by putting a coat of tooth paste inside the mask. If you have facial hair, like a mustache for example, it’s better if you put Vaseline on it before putting the mask on to avoid any leaking. If you have a goatee then it’s best to trim it a bit.
It’s recommended to buy the black skirt instead of the clear silicon one because the clear one doesn’t allow enough light in to get reflections of the glass when snorkeling.
