The open-water season is still a few months off in the UK, but we’ve been trying this new mask in readiness. It’s an update of the 15-year-old Seal, which was designed to give maximum visibility. That aspect of it hasn’t changed and you really can’t do better for completely unhindered sighting. What’s been updated is the shape – this is a more low-profile mask than the previous edition. The silicone skirt uses matt and shiny surfaces to increase its watertight security and improve comfort. Although the adjustment system has been worked on, it took us a good 10 minutes’ fiddling on first wear to get the fit right. Once we had, the mask was secure without leaking or pinching round the eyes, though after a long swim we were left with a red mark where the nose bridge sits, that took a few hours to disappear completely. It’s about as low-profile as a swim mask gets but, if you’re used to goggles, you’ll still find it bulky – try something like Aqua Sphere’s wide-lensed Kayenne goggles instead.

 

 

 

Verdict


A brilliant buy for completely clear vision in the water, with some fit niggles.
