Surely when you were growing up, you’ve seen the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid. Like many children (and even some adults!), they’ve wished they could be more like Ariel and live under the sea. With the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask, you can get just a little closer to that dream.
In this review, we are going to talk a little more about the features of the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask, but we are also going to give you an overview of what people who have purchased the snorkel mask had to say about their overall experience with it.
Then, we’re going to give you our recommendation on whether or not this full face snorkel mask is something you should consider purchasing for the next time you go out in the water!
The Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask is an innovative snorkeling mask that’s been designed to let you breathe and see under the water much easier than you could with a traditional snorkeling mask.
This innovative snorkeling mask features a polypropylene rim and translucent silicone skirt that allows the mask to create a tight suction to your face, preventing water from seeping into the full face mask.
Notable features of the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask include:
This mask features a one way valve system that uses a plug at the top. When under water, the plug prevents water from entering the snorkel and going into your mouth while submerged. Do keep in mind that this mask is not intended for deep sea snorkeling—just surface use.
Also, the top of the snorkel is a bright orange color so other swimmers and boaters can see you while submerged.
The wide view, 180 degree mask gives you the ability to take in all the wonder that lies beneath the surface of the water, without any obstructions. The mask also features a double air flow system that’s similar to domestic extraction fans. This feature prevents the mask from fogging up, which can be both an annoyance and a safety concern.
When looking at what people had to say about the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask, we were quite impressed by how many people enjoyed this mask. Of these positive reviews, customers really appreciated that they can get a tight seal around their face and not experience any water leaking through.
Also, if you do experience some leaking, people have said that it is easy to adjust the mask, and when adjusted and fitted correctly, you won’t experience any leakage.
Perhaps the biggest thing people were most impressed with when using the mask is that they found the mask comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. Because you can breathe normally through your nose instead of your mouth, folks report that they never feel uncomfortable, nor do they experience dry throat as they would get with the traditional snorkel.
At the other end of the spectrum, there were some people who were not happy with their purchase. The customers who left critical reviews felt that the outer seal around the face was very uncomfortable to wear, especially around the jaw area.
Others said the seal was too soft and they couldn’t get a tight seal. This caused water to leak in and making it nearly impossible to use.
Another problem several people had was that instead of a ball and seat water stop valve, this mask uses a “suction cup like stopper” that has a tendency to get stuck a quarter of the time. What this means is that every so often, people found it very frustrating to get some air.
These people did say that you can tap the tube when this happens and you can get air, but understandably, this is a hindrance that they’d rather not deal with when enjoying time in the water.
Whether you’re going on vacation to the beach or you’re swimming in the pool at home, you’re probably going to want to be able to marvel at what lies under water. While you could use a traditional snorkel where you breathe through your mouth, that isn’t always the best way to do it.
We like the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask because you can breathe with this mask like you would normally. It has a silicon seal that adheres to the side of your face, preventing any water from seeping in while you’re under the surface.
We also like that this mask has a huge viewing area with translucent sides, allowing you to see 180 degrees all around you. With other masks, you’re going to have something limiting your view, be it a nose piece or the side of the mask itself.
This translucence allows you to see from the corner of your eye so you can see when someone (or something) approaches you from the side.
We also like that this mask features a water stop mechanism that prevents the water from coming into the breathing tube. This mechanism allows you to dip a little further under the water without water pouring into your mask. And, when you need more air, you can easily come back to right below the surface, and take a deep breath—water free.
The next time you plan on going to the beach, we fully recommend picking up the Tribord Easybreath Full Face Snorkeling Mask.
