    This mask is great. Low volume and with that low drag in current. The strap is pretty thin, so, clipping a snorkle to it allowed it to wave badly in the current when I would turn my head to the snorkle side. Placing the snorkle under the strap eliminated any problem. I have a large face with a high brow, so, fitment was a little tricky. However, now, there are no problems once I found "where" the mask sealed best on my face. Visibility is excellent (just as good as other full-face masks) because of the close proximity of the lens to the eyes. It does have a different look, but I have encouraged others to give this mask a try.

    I use the mask for light swimming in lakes, pools and the ocean. The fit of the facemask is good, and the lenses are very clear and flat, so there is no visual distortion.

    CONS:

    The strap feels cheap, and the mask can't fit as snugly as I would like because the tightening mechanisms on either side of the mask don't hold the strap fast if the strap is tightened too much.

        Beautiful design,low volume mask with great peripheral vision, high quality lens and skirt to match. Contours to face with great seal no leaks. Thin strap easy to use and designed that way for function and practicality. Great for secondary mask for scuba. Excellent for free diving. Great mask for kids and snorkeling with a solid design to please with performance and durability, the most discriminating demand for performance.

          I have owned probably 10 of these minima I always give them away to kids in pipeline. They work great for freediving, and work I have 5 in stock at my shop in case they quit making em. Biggest gripe is not finding replacement straps but they rarely break.

            Comments about Cressi Minima Mask, All Black:

            I've logged over 2,000 dives in all conditions and this is, by far and away, my favorite mask of all time. It doesn't fog, it's ridiculously easy to equalize (don't even have to pinch off your nose), it seats well, doesn't flood, and is a breeze to clear. The lenses are so close to your eyes, that as an underwater photographer, it makes using my viewfinder very easy. I've taken this mask below 180', I've used it free diving in all conditions, I've jumped off of moving boats with it, and keep a spare to clean the bottom of my pool. It's very comfortable with no pinch points (i.e., the nose), and with no real frame, it would be difficult to break. I can see how the black skirt and small lenses might be off-putting to some, but you get used to it quickly, and as a free diver and photographer that can be beneficial, reducing glare. Oh - and the cost is amazing due to the simple construction, lack of frame, etc. I just hope Cressi continues to manufacture this mask for years to come with no changes. That's why I always keep an unused spare, just in case.

            Comments about Cressi Minima Mask, All Black:

            I use this as a primary or backup mask in freediving and scubadiving. The little volume makes for an ideal vacuum at greater depths and secures the mask well. It sits great on the surface as well although it does have a flimsy strap (that i recommend one upgrades). It is incredibly small when folded and fits any BCD pocket.

            It's a great little number and I strenuously recommend it!

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            JOHN F  fits small face nose pinch easy low volume
            chris h  would this mask be good for free diving/snorkeling? I'm looking for a low volume mask that is comfortable to were for 2+ hours at a time. other mask hurt my face just below the nose after about 20 min.
            ERIC B  IMO this mask is perfect for free diving/snorkeling. I have worn this mask for 3+ hours with minimal discomfort. I have NEVER had a mask that I have "forgotten" was there. However, I have found this mask extremely comfortable on my large face. Yet, my brother-in-law bought one as well and found it very comfortable as well and he has a small face. The soft silicone adapts well to varying face sizes and shapes. My 10 y/o son can even wear it. I have had mine for 4+ years and would buy another if needed!
            Shopper  Is this for free diving only?
            FRED E  the cressi minima mask works well for swimming ,freediving and scuba. I mostly use mine for scuba diving. I carry mine in a pocket as a backup for cave and wreckdiving. have done this for 4 years . have had to use it a couplr times worked without problems. easy to clear does not leak. I bought a second that i use for freediving.
