    I love this cheapo mask. I was certified with my younger brothers Akona mask. After certification I went out and got my big bad Navy SEAL looking Sherwood Magnum EX. What a piece of junk. Fogged everytime, even with the toothpaste cleaning and sea drops. Ditched the Sherwood and ran back to Akona as fast as I could. $80.00 mistake ever leaving.

    Great inexpensive mask

    Good inexpensive back-up mask. Akona makes quality stuff. Even the cheap stuff. No-frills mask. If it fogs, spit in it and get on with your life. Quit'cher cryin'.

    Leaky right out of package

        Comments about Akona Nica RS Mask (AKM550):

        The manufacturer are repairing or replacing this under warranty, so the jury is still out. Got it as a gift for my girlfriend for snorkeling in St John. It was defective, leaked from get-go for her. I tried it out to confirm this wasn't a "head shape" issue. A local dive operation there set her up with a rental Tusa mask that worked great for the day. She suffered through a few days with the leaky Akona, though.

          Comments about Akona Nica RS Mask (AKM550):

          My wife and I are advanced scuba divers however too often have problems with leaks and then fog with our masks. We went and ordered 3 different masks to try out, and this one fit and performed the best for both of us! Our face shapes and head sizes are quite different so this was a surprise. I couldn't get my wife to give it back, so I have ordered another.

            This single window mask fits better and performs better than a more expensive Tusa mask I bought last year.

              Don't let the price scare you, this is a great mask. Ironically, this was my first mask and, like a dummy, I tried to better it with numerous other more expensive models. But, I was always drawn back to my ole faithful Akona. I've learned my lesson...I'll never stray again!
