Cressi F1 Mask - Frameless Diving Mask made in sof Silicone for ensure comfort and perfect seal
About this deal
The Cressi F1 Scuba Diving Mask is one of the most popular diving masks on the market. It is made with high-quality materials and it is designed to be comfortable and durable. When we talk about low profile masks, we are referring to low volume masks. The quantity of internal air space within a mask (the space between your face and the lens/frame) is referred to as its volume. Cressi is a well-known name in the diving industry and this Cressi F1 mask is one of their most popular products. It is a professional quality mask that is perfect for both casual and professional divers.
Cressi F1 frameless diving and snorkelling mask bonds a high-grade silicone skirt directly to a single lens for the ultimate in simplicity. Producing a lightweight, 'frameless', low volume mask. The silicone skirt on this mask is flexible and conforms to your face comfortably without pinching or digging into your skin. We tested this mask on a few of our divers to various depths between 5-25m and no one reported a leak. Therefore, as it’s also leak proof, you don’t have to worry about water getting into your mask when you dive down deep or the subsequent mask clearing, which can be an uncomfortable experience for beginner scuba divers.Cressi has a good reputation for after-sales support. If anything goes wrong with your new SF1 mask (and it’s not your fault) get in touch with the company here. After each dive, you should rinse your mask in fresh water and store it in the shade as direct sunlight can degrade the silicone faster. Summary
It’s extremely comfortable. The straps are really easy to adjust, and they don’t feel like they’re going to cut into your face like many other masks do. The silicone skirt is easy to breathe through and doesn’t get in the way of your view. In addition, the manufacturer claims that the tempered glass lens on this mask offers superior optical clarity and allow for more light transmission compared to traditional plastic lenses while still providing a protective layer from scratches. Our divers unanimously agree that this is the case after trying out the mask at all visibilities from 5 to 30m. On a recent mask testing trip, from our team of divers, the one wearing the Cressi Frameless F1 Mask was the only person able to make out the faint shadow of a large school of herring swimming around them; a testament to the clever design of this lens.This is also a really nice looking dive mask – especially so because for whatever colour you choose to have it in, the entire mask is that colour; as a posse to framed dive masks where the frame and skirt rarely match in colour. Both the A1 and the F-Dual look like solid contenders for trips to come, but I’m most excited to see what — if any — difference the yellow lenses make on the A1. Post-Trip Update Sure you don’t get any side windows for extra peripheral vision as with the Cressi Pano 3 and there’s no inclination for extra downward view as with the Cressi Focus…but I would say that in terms of a well balanced field of view – up, down and outwards the Cressi F1 is an awesome all-rounder.
