These have been £25 for as long as I can remember. Part of the Decathlon Black Friday deals.

Great for those summer holidays and so much better than using the traditional snorkel\mask.

Bought this exact one three days ago for £25! 😩
Good find!
Can I go into Chernobyl with this on?
Asking for a mate.
Are these the things that give you CO2 poisoning and have killed a number of people? Must admit I'd quite fancy one if I had a tidy wetsuit or didn't live in Britain . Think you need to be cautious about the whole rebreathing thing tho, assuming this is one of those and I haven't got this completely wrong

Good find, these are excellent for snorkelling on holiday.
Yeah these look very much like the ones responsible for killing quite a few competent adult swimmers.

Yes, quite safe there now actually, you can go for tours and only few 100 meters away from ground zero...

Used one of these almost every day when I was on holiday and I'm still here to tell the tale!

I don't understand why people go. I mean granted it's eye opening how wrong things went, and how a town built for that one purpose was ruined, but personally I'd sooner spend a week in Barcelona than go to Chernobyl.
We have a couple of these and tried them out over the few trips--
- They're OK once you have them on properly, getting hair away from mask is much more challenging than goggles
- Clumsy when you get water in them and clumsy to take off/put on
- You can't/shouldn't go diving with them as its quite alot of air in them, so mainly just under surface water viewing
- They're heavy, very heavy, and bulky. If you need to trek to get to destination it's annoying to carry

The pros are you can see 180 vision and easier to breath.
I personally will go back to original set up but I think Mrs will still use the mask, fair weather snorkeller if you like

You played Silent Hill/ Resident Evil? Probably feel v similar to that, and perhaps get some radiation to boot.

I mean it's not expensive mind, think friend did a w/e trip for under £200 for everything.

This is informative thanks. The co2 worry is because these seal around the face and if your shallow breathing there's a worry that co2 might build up its heavier than oxygen. Co2 build up leading to a lack oxygen an cause you to pass out which in sea or pool is serious worry. Even if your face down in pool unconscious a lifeguard would likely assume you are still fine.

Add to that if dive down and mask gets pressure sealed or just generally tight on face any in water rescue they will want to blow through your nose most likely and you may it be able to get access in water to face.

Pools won't allow them, hawaii beaches have banned them. For short periods most people probably fine. If you own start feeling sleepy while using or bit lightheaded drunk. Then I think it could be your rebreathing your air.

I like the look off these but think I would not buy over the old style.

We bought the new 2019 versions of this type of mask (supposed to be improved air circulation) off Amazon before we went to the Maldives, the OH and I both felt light headed after snorkelling for 20 minutes so went and got the old fashioned type from the resort. The vision is great but not for long snorkelling trips IMO.
For casual use (which will be the case for the vast majority) these are no worse than a standard snorkel. Most won't be going deep diving in one.

No problems using one (not from Decathlon) on our recent summer holiday in Florida.
Used mine for a number of years. If you wear glasses I recommend the subea lenses decathalon sell. I also use with the camera attachment and cheap F60 camera.
Thought the safety issues were linked to copies of the decathlon product.

Food for thought, thanks.
We normally go 2-3 hrs stint but not experienced that issue, then again, we swim quite far so generally there is heavier breathing.
Hmm... Maybe best to revert back to original.

Depends what you want to use them for My wife and I have both used them and intend to go on using them but have advised our child, a much better swimmer who free dives, not to use one. There are also different brands, the cheaper imitations are not as good as this brand. My wife has a cheaper version, I have this one.

They should not be used to dive down, fast swimmers may find they dont get enough oxygen. They are ideal if you want to swim slowly and get a good view.

The extra air they contain can be a useful buoyancy aid but is likely to be annoying for fast swimmers. I've used mine for extended snorkelling trips but I wasnt swimming quickly. If you want to try and swim with something, so you are trying to keep up, take a normal snorkel.
Warning this type of mask has killed its users.
Will these be fine for just lazy floating and looking at the fish, no diving in or strenuous swimming????

That's what I use it for. I wouldn't go free diving but is good for as you say lazy floating.

Used them loads and where we go on holiday, the sea is full of them (kids and adults using them).
