About Atomic Aquatics Sub-Frame Anti-Reflective Coating Mask

When you learned how to dive your instructor told you the most important part of choosing equipment was comfort and fit. When looking for a mask you also need a great field of vision well this mask was designed to meet those and more desirable qualities. The Sub-Frame Two-Windowed Mask is a Low Volume Mask which offers you a Wide Field of Vision and because of its Frame Design is one of the most Durable Masks found on the market today. This Durability has been achieved with a Sub-Frame that is Molded-and-Bonded directly to the Masks Silicone Rubber Skirt. A second Frame made of Corrosion Resistant 316-Grade Stainless Steel Protects the Nose Bridge area and adds Strength and Ultimate Durability. Mask has Optical Quality Glass Lenses and Squeeze-to-Adjust Buckles.

The Atomic Sub-Frame Mask offers a new standard feature never seen or Seen Through" before in a Diving Mask. Atomic calls them Ultra-Clear Lenses. What makes Ultra-Clear special? Did you ever notice that Normal Dive Mask Lenses have a Green Tint to the Glass? To see this Tint, put your existing mask up to a piece of white paper and see for yourself. The Green Tint you see is the result of Iron Impurities left over in Lower Quality Float" or Window type Glass. That Green Tint Distorts True Colors and Blocks-Out some of the Light that Reaches the Eye.

Ultra-Clear is a new and exciting Optical Quality Tempered Glass with Exceptional Clarity and High Light Transmission, with No Color Distortion. The Exceptionally High Light Transmittance and Lack of Distortion in the Ultra-Clear Lens Maximizes the Light available for Improved Visual Acuity, especially Underwater in Low Light Conditions, Better Vision, Truer Colors is what you get with Atomic Aquatics Ultra-Clear Lenses. If you need to use Corrective Lenses the Atomic Aquatics Sub-Frame Mask has Optional Corrective Lenses available (see SKU: ATMMLSFL10).

In addition the Sub-Frame Mask ARC has an Anti-Reflective Coating which allows more light to enter the mask and reduce light reflection. This makes seeing through the mask better above and below the water. Atomic Aquatics developed ARC (Anti-Reflective Coating) Technology to Reduce Reflected Light and actually Increase the amount of Available Light Transmitted to a Diver's Eyes. The result is a greatly Improved Transmission of 98% of Available Light, compared to a loss of more than 14% of light with standard green "float" glass used on the majority of masks on the market. Anti-Reflective Coatings or ARC" is a Multi-Layer Metal Oxide Coating Process applied to both sides of the Ultra-Clear Lenses. This allows more light to enter the mask by Reducing Light Reflections off the inside and outside surface of the lens. The Metal Oxide Coating is only a few Microns Thick.ARC will give you Clearer, Crisper Vision. You will see more Clearly Underwater and Objects in the Distance will become more Defined and Acute. ARC also Increases Contrast and Clarity, Reduces Eyestrain, Glare, and prevents Ghost Images on the Viewing Area of the Lens. ARC is an Absolute Must for Night Diving, Limited Visibility Conditions, and Underwater Photographers.

This mask is constructed of high quality materials, and its fit and finish are worth noting as well. These cosmetic details aside, this mask is not only comfortable but also has good field of vision while eliminating that dead space often found in other lower end mask. The lens quality is great, and the ARC coating does reduce reflections even on sunny days. I own this mask in the black silicone version--have already gotten compliments on how nice the mask looks. After reading some of the previous comments concerning the ARC lens coating, I will reasure any doubts that this mask's coated lenses seem to be pretty durable. A quality mask scrub will not negatively affect the lens coating at all. I would, however, do my best to protect this mask from any unnecessary scratches that may stem from misuse or disregard. Downsides of this mask are minute. I will suggest that its user coat the lens with a good coating of anti-fog, preferably a gel-based product. Rinse the product immediately, and you should have no problems with it fogging down below.

Worst mask I've owned

Thought I was buying one of the best masks on the market, but from the first dive on, I spent most of my time clearing and adjustin the mask. Truly disappointing!!!

Comments about Atomic Aquatics Sub-Frame Anti-Reflective Coating Mask:

This Atomic Sub Frame ARC Anti-Reflective mask is indeed clearer and crisper in vision. It is almost as if you are seeing it in "high definition" underwater. I was quite satisfied to date from my snorkeling and diving experiences (certification forthcoming).

Make sure you treat the lenses in mask for anti-fog based on recommendations of your diving instructor or publications. I used plain white toothpaste, soap and water to treat/wash the lenses in mask. Then I added the anti-fog supplement. It worked great preventing fog.

Overall, I was content with the fit of this mask. It fits slight wide as I was able to readjust the strap for more comfort. My nose is somewhat large so it fits in nose area well. To date I am satisfied with this mask.

    Comments about Atomic Aquatics Sub-Frame Anti-Reflective Coating Mask:

    Overall, this is a very nice mask. It fits my face very well and does not leak. Due to its skirt, it would fit a wide variety of other faces, too.

    Lenses are crystal-clear and offer true color. Most of my dives are for maintenance, fish counting or photography purposes.

    Its biggest con: PRICE.

    Service and delivery comments:

    As always with LeisurePro, I promptly received EXACTLY what I ordered for the stated price.

      Comments about Atomic Aquatics Sub-Frame Anti-Reflective Coating Mask:

      This is a great mask fits perfect. I shopped around for awhile before i spent any money on my mask fins and snork. I love the way it fits with very little to no leak for me. the only problem i found since this was my very first mask was at shallow depths or in a out door pool on sunny days is the glare from the clear skirt.i think i would prefer the black skirt in these conditions. It took me 4 dive befor i found the proper tightness but since tne i have not had to clear it but maybe one time during a 1 hour dive. give a good pre scrub and use a defog every dive and you will love this mask.
