I have been having face skin rashes swimming every other day. Can this product be used to protect eyes and face, yet allows breathing for swimming laps?
It could work. You would have to stick a snorkel through the mouth hole and ensure that you engage the mouth piece in your mouth. Otherwise the added volume of the mask would make it difficult to draw air. As far as it's protective qualities I use this mask with a Poseidon regulator for light commercial dive use in not so pristine waters. I am very satisfied with it.
I don't think that would work well (unless you swim laps with a scuba tank and a regulator.) The hole for the regulator (at least when I wear it) isn't flush with my mouth, and there isn't a way to articulate it closed.
No not really. If you do not have it hooked up to a regulator, the mask will fill up with water.
Short answer... No, and you'll probably drown. My advise, seek out a dermatologist.
I would not think so, this mask is meant to have a regulator mouth piece inserted into the hole in the front, without that the mask would just flood with water! Joe
No, this mask requires a regulator installed in order for it to seal to the face
You would have to use a snorkel with this mask.
It would cover your face as long as you don't mind the awkwardness at the pool.
The short answer to your question is no.
The Cressi Full Face Rubber Mask was designed to be used by the scuba diver in any, but especially cold water environments. I first used it along with countless other commercial divers over thirty years ago. It is the most light weight, versatile full face mask we had encountered and remains so to this day! It is low volume, high visibility, and features an easy-to-equalize molded nose piece, and seals to the face or neoprene hood. It's "spider strap" allows for 'easy on'; 'easy off'.
The molded mouth piece extends inward, receiving the regulator mouth piece of all brands, forming an absolute water tight seal! This is a remarkable feature, because it secures the regulator, eliminating mouth and jaw fatigue.
I would not recommend it to be used swimming laps, whether in a pool, or at the beach. The unique molded mouthpiece which extends inward, is not designed to interface with, or seal to, your mouth. You would experience immediate flooding into the mask, rendering it ineffective.
I would recommend you check out the many "swim goggles" at Leisure Pro. That would protect your eyes. For skin protection, you should seek the advise of a dermatologist, who would be able to recommend a water proof, protective skin cream.
For scuba, the Cressi Full Face Rubber Mask is without a doubt, the finest full face mask in it's class for the price tag!
If your swimming laps when you turn your head to the right or left to get a breath - there would be a gap between the forward edge of your mouth and the mask- hence water would constantly fill the mask.
