About Mares X-VU Liquidskin Spear Fishing Mask

The X-VU LiquidSkin is the first completely new 2-lense mask using LiquidSkin technology designed after the X-vision. Beyond the natural comfort provided by LiquidSkin skirt, an additional soft silicone part is injected in the nose area acting like an anti-shock bumper. The 2-button buckles are brand new and will be available by the end of the year together with optical lenses. Mares R&D and Design divisions have conducted numerous computer simulation and complex studies on the faces shape. The results are masks which combine great comfort with an incredible field of vision.

Liquid Skin is a Bi-silicone exclusive technology. Two different types of silicone: a firmer portion for support structure and a softer portion for contact with your face, 45% softer on skin of unparalleled comfort. 270% greater elasticity for a perfect fit. By attaching the buckles to the skirt masks have superior hydrodynamics because the strap fits closer to the head, making this a low volume mask, in addition the tension exerted by the strap acts on the skirt and not directly on the frame reducing the pressure of the frame against the face.

For added comfort the X-VU uses Tri-Comfort Technology a softer material molded to the frame in the area of the forehead and nose. This soft material provides superior comfort during frequent or long dives. By attaching the buckles to the skirt masks have superior hydrodynamics because the strap fits closer to the head, making this a low volume mask, in addition the tension exerted by the strap acts on the skirt and not directly on the frame reducing the pressure of the frame against the face.

This low volume light weight mask has a skirt with a double feathered edge for an improved seal, easy to squeeze nose well allows one handed equalization, tempered glass lenses, quick adjusting buckles, with two colors in black silicone. Mask comes with a mask box, and a 24 month limited warranty.

    This is a sweet mask for scuba diving. I have only used it about 1/2 a dozen times and it fits well and doesn't leak. I have used it mostly for extreme cold water diving and it holds up well. It fogs up without defog solution but I think most masks do that anyway.

    This is a good feeling mask that doesnt leak. It is easy to clear and the nose piece is soft which makes adjusting for presure on your ears easy. This would be a great mask, perfect for diving and spearfishing but it is the worst fogging mask I have ever seen. I have tried everything I know of and it still fogs. Its not just a little fog, it's solid vistion blocking fog. I am sending mine back to be replaced or repaired, but from reading other posts I dont think it is just the rare bad pair. This seems to be a common problem.

            Very comfortable mask! It was difficult to defog on the first day of use, but the mask did not fog again beginning on the second day. The skirt conforms to the face nicely and did not have any leakage issues.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              BEN H  Good quality for a good price. Very comfortable if it fits you correctly.
              richard` g  worth the $$? how is it for clearing, is it nose purge, temp lenses, sizing what else?
              Steve S  This is a fantastic mask! It has nice large lenses and a very soft skirt. it is a low profile mask which increases your field of view as well. This does not have a purge valve.
              Stephanie M  My husband has a big giant head and I know he can't wear just any mask and I need a large mask so he can enjoy snorkeling help. What direction should I go when purchasing a snorkel kit?
              KEITH H  A good fitting mask is so CRUCIAL! I would suggest having your husband go around to local dive shop and test their mask. Any dive shop I have been to (and I'm in Utah of all places to have a dive shop), will let you try their masks out in a pool. Have him swim down and and make sure the mask has a good fit. Splurge on the mask... it will be worth the investment in the long run. I promise. As for a snorkel, I don't see much value in anything too fancy. Mine is from walmart. :) Hope that helps, K
