Just got one of these and it's amazing - bit heavy until you're in the water but feels way more natural than a traditional snorkel and provides better field of view.

I wasn't going to post this but saw another post on here for a Decathlon version which doesn't have the camera mount and is £2 dearer so felt like I had to!

Three sizes:
XS/S
S/M
M/L

Instead of paying £2.95 for delivery, these adults or kids Speedo swimming goggles are good value at £2.49 (IMHO) and will get you over the £20 minimum for free delivery.

Make sure you hang onto your receipt for 3 year warranty.

I was going to buy these for the kids but then I read that their has been a big increase in snorkelling deaths and these style masks are possibly to blame. 2 theory’s are that due to the design it is easier for carbon dioxide to build up inside and also due to the straps around the back of your head if you get into trouble they can be difficult to take off.

I have one of these. On mine when breathing heavily, the intake that allowed the air to come into the face mask stuck a couple of times meaning that I couldn’t get any oxygen in - it just sucked the mask tighter to my face - and I had to rip the whole thing off my head in a bit of a panic to be able to breathe.
Might have just been a fault with the valve on mine. Had it not have been for that it would have been amazing, as someone else said, it gave a much better field of vision and also they allow you to breathe through the nose or mouth, but the fault with mine put me off ever using it again.

I used one of these (or one like it) on holiday last month and they're brilliant. You can even dive down under the surface and there's a little ball that blocks the hole at the top of the breathing tube to stop the water coming in.

Thanks for the info.
Great find did anyone use the camera mount, was it any good ?
I saw the picture and then saw S/M in the title and thought of something completely different

I have the Decathlon version of this. It is ace. You're not meant to duck dive with these as the surface area of the mask over your face is large so the pressure of the mask will massively increase as you go deeper - and it will stick firmly on your face. The valve is there to just stop the odd surface breech.

Nearly 4 decades ago, as a kid, I used to go to the local diving club and I was warned back then to avoid snorkels with a ball float for blocking water entering the pipe as they'd often jam. I'm not sure I'd be keen on something new, with the same technology that was a danger all that long ago.
I have Decathlon versions of these and really like them - casual snorkelling is easy and very relaxing - the camera mount addition on this version for less money make these fab - really good spot OP!

This can happen with dry tops when you breath too heavily (usually inexperience people panic a little about breathing under water). You get a build up of carbon dioxide in the mask, which is why they're pretty dangerous.... You'd have noticed aound other people you have to remove the whole mask to communicate with them, rather than taking the mouthpiece out.

The general consensus from what I've read online is that they can be dangerous when used incorrectly and that it's easier for people to do so because they appeal to the inexperienced and don't require the practice that traditional snorkelling equipment does. Although they do clearly say that they are not meant for diving, they should really also have a warning that they are not meant for vigorous exercise.

I would only use mine to paddle about on the surface and would use alternative equipment for diving. I've never had a problem taking it off but it is obviously much harder to take off than just a mouthpiece, which is not helpful when someone is panicking - particularly a risk for the inexperienced. I spent quite a bit of time with mine in the shallows (i.e. where I could stand up and my head would be out of the water) getting totally comfortable with it before I went into deeper water.

There is a video you can watch here: youtube.com/wat…2js. The video is a bit one-sided but I think the comments give a fair picture of the pros and cons of this type of snorkelling equipment.

These are the older version...look on amazon for the 2019 version, better breathing apparently and only a few quid more than these.
Learn how to use a proper snorkel its not hard really and far safer.

If it's just for kids to see under the.water just make this for a couple of quid (cheap and nice project to do in the summer holidays)

True, but after years of proper snorkeling I tried one of these while on holiday this year and thought it was a far better snorkeling experience. This was just swimming around on the surface watching the fish below mind. As pointed out no good for diving to any depth.
I could see how some people might panic when you try to breathe in while the float valve is shut and the mask sucks to your face like an alian. You soon learn if this happens you just have to breathe out and the mask becomes free again.

These aren't for people who can't snorkel. I used to hold advanced BSAC Snorkel qualifications (never thought I'd get to boast this - so indulge me)
They are for a fantastic field of vision, and greater comfort. For floating over a shallow reef and taking it all in, they're incredible. And as such, they have their place. It's kind of like saying "learn how to proper scuba dive, it's not hard"
