A very cool looking mask with a good balance between 'angular' shapes and curves (some recent masks are very harsh in their looks). The chevrons in the silicone above the nose bridge is a nice little visual touch. From the side the profile is very low volume and minimalist with a quite pointed nose pocket.
In The Water:
It has a small and light feel to it in the hands, and on the face it feels soft and comfortable. There are the small waffle patters on the nose pocket that provide a better grip for pinching during equalisation. There is a degree of flexibility at the nose bridge between the glass lenses that allow some pressure at depth to be minimised through flexion of the mask structure. Visibility is great due to large lenses for such a low volume mask.
It sits in the mid to high range in the Sopras Apnea mask range, at €45, though notably I have seen the exact same mask (no doubt from the same factory), marketed by another brand and retailed at €56! So this is a real bargain.
A lovely low volume mask at a great price. Well worth a try if you are in the market for a new or a spare freediving mask.
