First things first, I need to apologize for the lack of recent blogs. It seems like I have been traveling all summer with back to back trips to Hawaii and Orlando. The good thing is, during these trips I had a lot of time to test some new Gotta Have Gadgets! The first one was truly a game changer for me. I love to snorkel, and the Aria full face snorkeling mask made it even more enjoyable! It wasn’t until a friend of mine told me about the full face snorkel mask that she saw while traveling to the Bahamas. She pulled up the Aria full face mask, and I knew I had to try it. I will give you some advice now, if you purchase this, please allow yourself some time to get used to it. You don’t want to get to your vacation and use it for the first time as it does take a little time to get used too. I practiced several times in my pool until I was very comfortable with it, that way I was good to go for my vacation. Secondly, get ready to be stared at. I had several people approach me in Hawaii asking about the mask, how easy it was and if the view was that much better. Third, before you buy, make sure you properly size your mask so you get the best fit which will give you the best experience. Let me tell you, the view is spectacular. With a separate breathing chamber, the full face mask didn’t fog up as much as my regular mask. The Aria full face mask also gives you 180 degrees of view giving you the ability to see a lot more under water. As I just mentioned, the Aria full face mask has a separate breathing chamber. The combination of this chamber and the design of the dry top snorkel, I was able to stay under far longer and enjoy the incredible snorkeling Hawaii has to offer. The air chamber allows you to breath normally which is often a problem with a typical snorkel. The overall design of the Aria full face snorkel mask is amazing. The quality is what I expect from a higher priced item, and it was built for accessories like the camera holder to record your adventure. If you have plans to snorkel or visiting a place where you would like to try it, I encourage you to visit http://diving.oceanreefgroup.com/product/aria/ to find out about all the Aria full face snorkel mask has to offer, you will be glad you did!!
