I have a small face and find other masks too big to get a comfortable fit. I take a size extra small in motorbike helmet. A friend recommended this, has any small faced person tried one?
ALBERT K I don't have a small face, but this is a fantastic, low volume mask. Comfortable with a nice soft skirt and neoprene strap and has a very good field of vision. almost fits my 4.5 year old's face and I believe it can be ordered is a smaller size than I have.
TIMOTHY Y Our family is small framed and the Oceanic Mini-Shadow Mask would be a better choice for the small framed face. It fits closer to the face and is not as inclined to leaking from sudden movements because it fits more snugly. Oceanic makes some great masks, once the style is decided on you won't be disappointed.
JEFF R My face isn't small but it is narrow. Most masks on my face leak on each side because they are made for a "rounder" face. I've had no problems with the Oceanic mask. I'm a divemaster and for two years in Hawaii dove this mask non-stop and would recommend it. Just be sure to put it on in the store without the strap, draw a slight suction by inhaling thru your nose and listen for any air leaks. Also take note during this test that there are no pressure points around the perimeter that will make your face sore after awhile. Dive safe! Regards from Jeff
JERRI M I have a small face with a small nose and this mask fits well due to the very soft frame. It's comfortable and comes with a nice mask strap as well.
JOHN E We bought this mask for a 32 year old daughter that has a small face, it worked well for her. I wouldnt say she has an extra small face
MALCOLM K I suggest the Mini -Shadow. I have used it with students that were children. They worked perfectly. The shadow series, in my opinion, is the best mask made. I recommend it to everyone.
WILLIAM G They make this same mask in a mini version. I had the same issue. The standard Oceanic Shadow as too wide for my face, the Oceanic Shadow Mini fit perfectly and no more leaking! It's a great mask, I'll buy another when this once craps out (at this rate that'll be several years from now).
ANDREW J MCPHAT J My wife is 5'1" and has a small face. She really likes this mask, so much so we bought a second as a backup. We have a box of masks that have been tried over the years and this one remains her favorite.
