    i tried it last year

    it works well

    however, i am not used to having my mouth covered by a mask AND i felt it had too much bulk.

    my friend and neighbor phyllis (member here) just ordered one!

    Looks interesting. How does it feel? Do you normally have any issues with a regular snorkel mask that just covers the eyes & nose?

    It takes me a little while to get used to it, being that I only use it two weeks out of each year. I have to really concentrate on my breathing and let myself realize that I CAN breathe & don't need to hyperventilate and fog my mask up!

    jacki..no fog, no moisture, face stays totally dry.
    it is perfect for many.
    but for me, it was just so totally different it felt weird and i could not get used to having my entire face covered.

    disclosure....i only had it on for an hour.

    I may give it a try. Sometimes have to wear full face respirator for Hazmat work (Level C PPE) so it's not to much of a difference except I'll be in water.

    My son tried one. He rented it from Julio's water sports on Eagle Beach. He LOVED it. I loved that I could hear him screaming and getting all excited about the shells, starfish, sea glass and money he was finding! I will definitely be looking into these before we get back to Aruba.

    I especially loved that there was nothing IN his mouth - since we were renting it. Freaks me out a lil bit!

    I have a Snorkl I cannot wait to use! We have been in Aruba for a little more than six weeks, but our container from the U.S. is sitting in customs right now (long story!). Anyway, the reason I purchased the Snorkl was because I have a terrible gag reflex and literally cannot put the snorkel in my mouth. For many years, when I go "snorkeling", I have a mask and fins and just hold my breath as long as possible. Cannot wait to truly snorkel with my family!!!

    Watched the YouTube videos and it looks like you'd lose the seal with glasses on.
