Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

No-seam side windows are a cool feature, I as skeptical but you cannot see the seam at all. In a local dive shop I was compairing about 15 different masks they were selling. Using visual reference points compaired to my out-streched arm, I measured the actual field of vision. This one was the best by far, beating other models that cost up to $200. Comfortable fit, great price, a must have.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I and two other dive masters could not get Scubapro UV to stop fogging. We used all the usual scrubs, spit and tricks, plus commercial anti fog solution. I suspect the side windows were molded in with too much silicone that filmed the glass.I started to think it was plastic rather than glass. I ended up buying a used mask that leaked to salvage my trip. The $20 dollar leaker was a big improvement. I expected more of Scubapro. The ScubaPro Frameless Single Window Mask would be a safer bet.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

After a season of usage, this mask leaks at the valve. It seems like the valve material became stiff and it wouldn't hold seal and leaks. Also extra effort for purging water from the mask. Have to switch back to my Tri-Vent, even thought this mask is a bit heavier.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

After a season of use, my purge valve is stiff and is difficut to purge out the water in my mask. This mask still performs well otherwise. I returned to my old Tri-Vent (got to be more than 10 years old) which fits better because the larger size and the purge is still soft enough to purge with ease. Hopefully ScubaPro has vent replacement.

Smaller frame than the old Scubapro mask which makes this product light weight and less cumbersome. Nice balance between durability and light weight materials. Doesn't feel "cheap" but not big and bulky. I would recommend this to anyone who wants full view dive mask for recreational open water diving.

Very comfortable with a nice view of the diver beside you. Truly the best choice when it comes to recreational diving.
Not fit for freediving though. Because of the large glass it won't stand up to the constant pressure change you get with freediving.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Best Mask I have ever owned. It did get a small leak in the bottom left corner of mask. I sealed with silicone but got some on lenses. So I just bought a new one. I had no mask case so I probably caused the leak in my dive bag. I just purchased 3 to use as backups. The working visibility of the mask exceeds most The purge valve is protected by a silicone flap. I have put this mask through He@@ and back. It is not expensive which is good because I have bought many masks for more money and had far less quality. Try it out.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

It's a great mask-I had previously bought one for my boyfriend and tried it-ended up using his until I could buy a non-leaking mask in Mexico. The mask leaks somewhere into the right lense-not from where it attaches to the face. Realized it is easier to equalize without a purge in the way and after wearing it for a couple of dives in a row, the hard purge started hurting my nose.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I use this for all my diving, free and scuba. I have a round face and have a hard time finding good sealing masks. This does the trick, I tried the purge model (I own two without purge). I have to have the masks w/out purge on very tight, I tend to get water in due to facial features under my nose (wrinkles from age). The purge makes it easier to eliminate leakage which is minimal.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I had a 3-pane mask with a purge that I bought 30 years ago. It was left in the garage and in the attic one too many moves ago and the heat melted the framing and dried out and split the skirting. I took it to a dive shop to see if it could be salvaged and they said that it could but the manufacturer had a $65 bench charge over and above labor and parts, I tossed it.

I wanted a replacement and had been looking around for a couple of months. I got this mask for much less than the bench charge and it has performed very well. Right now I am getting back in shape and am snorkeling at my gym pool. After a few days of using it, I cleaned it up and set it back for when I go open water snorkeling, so the chlorine does not affect it.

I look forward to next Spring and Summer to using it when I go out, it is safely in the house, in its container, away from the heat.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Used it for snorkeling in Maui. Worked great. Fogged a little, but it was probably my fault for not using defog spray and/or breathing through my nose a little bit. Purge valve works well, and easy to use, gives me confidence while under water without having to treat water while trying to purge the mask like I have had to do with older masks. [...] Mask seals very well.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

This mask is crystal clear. Not completely anti-fog (is there such a thing?) but close to it. I rarely get to scuba now, so mainly use for free diving in Hawaii. Really wish I had this mask on previous dive trips. Plus the price is a bargain (and LP is half the price of local dive shops). I don't even use my other masks that are twice as expensive. Very clear all the time. A little bulky compared to newer low profile masks, but hasn't been a problem. Not sure the side lenses help, but they don't hurt. Purge hasn't really come in handy, but doesn't hurt. Haven't tried all the "best" masks, but can't imagine many better than this one. Can imagine some are worse. Strongly recommend, especially for first mask. Great bargain.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

This is the first mask I have purchased, and I have been pleased with it. I chose this mask because of its purge feature and range of vision; and have been pleased with both features.

The mask fits well and does not leak. The purge feature works great and allows the mask to be cleared with ease when a little water does get inside. The nose piece is comfortable and allows room to grab when equalizing ears.

The lense appears to be of good quality and stays clear. I cleaned the interior of the lense with toothpaste when I first received the mask. I do not have any problems with fogging as long as I clean it with spit prior to diving.

The lense offers a good field of vision and crystal clear viewing. The clear skirt helps allow light inside, but also distracts from time to time with distorted images. I only notice the distraction when I begin the descent, but it goes unnoticed once I get busy enjoying the dive.

Overall, this has been a great purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good fit, clear view, with the purge.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

This mask is very comfortable and provides outstanding field of vision. Both my wife and I have this mask and have no complainants. We both like a mask with a purge valve which makes clearing very easy. We found that the seal is excellent allowing very little to no water into the mask. We just returned from a dive vacation and made 20 dives using this mask, an excellent addition to our dive equipment.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Bought one for a trip backup mask. I have since ditched my former mask and use this. Now I have another of these as my backup. After trying about 30 masks, my kids both liked mine the best, so I bought one for each of them during their OW classes. Best fit and quality all around.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Product is used for diving up to 35-40 metres. Very soft and comfortable rubber. At first the purge valve hurt my nose, however once the strap was losened, the mask catered for my larger than average nose...

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I have been diving for 27 years and have always liked the Scubapro purge masks. I bought this one for my boyfriend's daughter and earlier last year I bought one for him. They both love the fit and performance. I have an older model but it still works great after many years of diving and snorkeling.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Very good mask. I have the purge valve variety. I have had a bit of trouble adjusting to the placement of the purge valve directly under the nose. This makes it difficult for me to equalize my sinus/ears, as my old purge mask allowed me to equalize by pluging my nostrils with my fingers. I have gotten better with this new Scubapro mask with practice & I think it will only get better.
Great vision. I got the clear color & it gives as close a feeling of wearing no mask at all as is possible. Quality construction. Snug, confotrable fit. No leaks.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I'm an avid scuba diver and this mask is amazingly comfortable, plus it's a single-lens design, so there's loads of unencumbered vision.
I purchased this mask in the purge and non-purge
design, and love them both. Have not found any negatives.

LeisurePro has the BEST customer service and shipping out there! I ordered one mask on Tuesday and it arrived two days later, on Thursday. Mask was in its' plastic box, well-packed, and in perfect condition.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

This mask is perfect. When choosing a mask it’s sometimes difficult. You want the best field of vision (wide view), without having a mask to large for your face. The Scubapro Crystal VU gives the perfect balance for this. It gives you a clear wide field of vision without being too wide and leaking. The optional purge valve feature is a bonus, but with such a great fit not 100% necessary. I like it because between my hood and hair if I have a slight leak it’s easy to just expel it without having to come up and reset everything. This is a Great mask at a super price. [...]

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

I have a scar on the left of my forehead right along where the skirt of a mask seats. This creates a small leak for me that has always caused me to have to constantly clear my mask. I have tried numerous things to correct this issue but short of plastic surgery, there seems to be no cure. The advent of this type mask was a blessing. My son won one of these at our dive shop's Christmas drop-in and I tried it, love it and bought one for me. I still have a little leak but clearing it is a breeze now. I enjoy my dives more because of this.

Comments about Scubapro Scubapro Crystal VU Plus Single Lens Mask with Purge:

Good solid mask with purge. While I am one of those people who loves the purge feature, my only complaint is that it makes pinching your nose tough during equalization. You are forced to reach inbetween the rigid frame and rigid purge to do so. For me, the purge outweighs this annoiance, but others might not put as much weight into the purge device. "Crystal Vu" mask is very clear with average range of vision. No fog problems.
