This mask was a bit of a trip for me. First off, the silicone is so soft, or the fact that it's framless made me want to tighten up the straps to the max. However, as I loosened it to the point where I didn't really feel it, it didn't leak... well the nose fills a bit, but it's easy to clear (I do have a big nose). Does not fog if you prep it and use defogging stuff as with all masks. Have used this in warm and cold water and no real complaints. Did leak on a couple of dives with a hood, but had gloves on and couldn't make sure my hood was overtop of the seal. Wish I would have got the black silicon, but overall it's a fine mask.

    Comments about Mares Essence Liquid-Skin Mask:

    I'm asian had leaking problems with Cressi Big Eye, Oceanic Shadow, and Atomic Frameless. The Essence hasn't leaked or fogged. Maybe a coincidence, but the last mask that didn't leak was an old framed Mares that I don't have anymore.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  does the essence mask black model is totally black or is the one with the buckles in gray or transparent???
            MICHAEL P  On mine (bought in 2010) the buckles are transparent.
            Shopper  Is this mask suitable for someone like me with a small nose and face, and also with small nose-to-mouth bridge? I wear a Scubapro Spectra and it works well.
            MATT N  It should fit you fine. I have a fairly small face and my daughter also uses the same mask. I guess the only way to be sure is to try one on at a dive shop if you can. It is the best and most comfortable mask Iv'e ever owned.
