I bought this set for my friend who didn't have diving equipment and I went back to get one for me and this is the reason:
The mask is made of silicone and sticks to your face preventing water from going in for longer.
The snorkel has an integrated emergency wisle and two valves. The top valve features a float to prevent breathing in when under water (Very important in choppy conditions)
The flippers are not the best you can buy, but I would be happy to pay 20-25 pound for a mask like this and 5-7 pound for the snorkler in a diving shop.
I also got the "summer" wetsuit (See other deal)
I think this is a steal considering that in the past I have paid over the top for brands now on the decline.

- Diving mask with tempered safety glass lens and extra wide viewing angle
- Ergonomically shaped snorkel with silicone mouthpiece, valve and signalling whistle
- Fins with quick-release fastening
Supplied with a practical net carry bag

That works out cheaper than Decathlons cheaper lines

I used to do a lot of snorkelling, before I had kids (and got boring!), and this set seems great value for money. I have paid more for poorer quality items in the past.
Heat added.

Been diving since I was a toddler.

Where I come from we catch our own dinner.

And I'm not kidding!!!

I had some videos loaded on youtube, but they banned them because some people found it disturbing and cruel to animals!?

I mean: what would you do with an octopus if you didn't eat it?! (raw) :x

Excellent, been waiting for a deal on these! Off to Turkey (Blue Lagoon - Olu Deniz) end of the month, should come in handy. Will check out my local and see if they have any.

Cheers Man!

This is a very good price if the quality is OK.

One thing to mention though:

The mask may not be suitable for your face shape. If it isn't then it may leak water; this is more of a problem if you're diving than snorkelling. A constantly leaking mask will ruin your dive. To test the mask:

Place the mask in a comfortable position over your eyes and nose and push it a little to try and create a seal without the headband around your head. Tilt your head back and take a deep breath in through your nose and hold your breath. Now move your head around, backwards, forwards and sideways. If the mask doesn't fall off your face then you have a good seal and the mask will be suitable. If it falls off then don't buy it.

I'm confused by this "The snorkel has an integrated emergency wisle and two valves." Can anyone please explain what a 'wisle' is?

Very accurate!:thumbsup:
They sell the mask on its own in Lidl so you can try in the shop

Sorry, spelling mistake: it should be "Whistle: a device which you hold to your lips and blow through in order to make a loud, high sound"

I know what a whistle is mate, I don't need an explanation of what to do with it. I was asking a genuine question as to what a 'wisle' was. I won't bloody bother next time.

Lol, we all thought you were being pedantic and now you've gone on the defensive!

Defensive? Jesus, I only asked a question :roll: Anyway, it's of little consequence. God knows how somebody can make a spelling mistake with the word 'whistle'. It's not difficult, really, is it?
I blame the poor standard of education these days ;-)

I blame the very poor standard of education of any days!
Given that English is my fourth language I thought that I might have claimed an allowance on an online forum.
I was surely wrong and I will adhere to the strictest rule of grammar, punctuation and spelling in future :thinking:

Thanks for pointing this out. It's something I think about a week or so before every holiday and then can never find anything other than a set which is little more than an overpriced toy.

So I've picked up a couple well in advance of this years trip... Sicily here we come!

The photo with the octopus was shot at Punta Sant' Elena (Siracusa) Sicily.
Better eaten like the locals do (raw) but nice in salads as well. :-D
#15
I did like Siracusa, only a day visit there though, but it looked like a beautiful city. Didn't spy the octopi though...

Same, I usually leave it until last minute and when I'm actually there and never find anything.

Wasn't the price that makes me tempted either, the way the OP described, should be a sales person!

I will tell you from experience (Diving for 15 years and MOD3 qualified) if you are buying this the chances are that you are on holiday for a week or 2 and it will last you way past that. For the money it is a steal, you will not find cheaper.

Oh, and to the OP - they are called 'Fins', not 'Flippers'!

Voted Hot.

Very true if you are american.
I'm sorry to tranform this post in an English exam board, but in this case I cite the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary.

Flipper (Shoe): a type of large flat rubber shoe, used for swimming, especially under water. (US ALSO fin) :whistling:

And Flipper sounds more Dolphin's friendly :-D
#19
You'll find most divers worldwide will laugh at you or take the p*** if you call them flippers. :)

Good job this isnt a divers forum then!

I am now confused.
I thought we had to use correct English in this forum and now not only you are using asterisks, but are asserting that I have used an incorrect word even though it is found in a reputable English vocabulary.
HOW VERY DARE YOU! :-D

Just want to say that I have been to Lidl today and checked the mask first. It is very comfortable and the silicone is pretty soft. Can't really say about the fins/flippers/paddles (;)) but the mask and snorkel are well worth the price. Just as a newbie to LIDL offers, are these one offs or will they repeat in a few months time/ next year etc?
#23
They usually do this offer at the biginning of the summer every year
#24
Noticed today that Lidl have reduced the price of their remaining sets to £9.99 in my local branch(Kilmarnock).
