will mask leak using this product?
no, but you want to treat the scap like you would your hair and keep it clear from the mask
I don't wear the scap under the skirt of my mask, so there is no issue with leaking.
Hello buddy !
no your mask won't leak as long as you don't have a tucked underneath your mask ! Very simple to use, don't hassle with it at all ! Great for those dives in between warm and cold ! Have a great day ! Academy of scuba (az)
I've had no problem with it. When it goes on it sits above the mask
You have to have the mask in contact with your face or it will leak. If you try to have the mask seal against the skull cap it will leak. In my case, I put the mask on just below skull cap. You may need to slightly tighten the mask because the mask strap does seem to have to go on the outside of the skull cap on the back of your head. By having the mask strap on the outside of the cap, it helps it from falling off on entry into the water.
No if you wear the mask skirt in well.
No. Just slide it up and put your mask on under it. After that it may slide down a bit and touch the top of your mask from the outside but no problems.
I haven't used a hood/mask combo in over 30 years but I never recall trying to get a mask to seal over any material, maybe I'm misunderstanding your question. A hood or this cap ends more or less at the hair line so that the mask seals would contact skin only. The inside edges have tacky rubber "nibs" for grip, making it mandatory that you not fold up that lip, so you might have to wear it a slight bit higher on your head, which I don't see as a problem. If you try a mask over the fabric...well the fabric is pretty low profile and maybe it would seal to a slow leak, but I'm sure it would leak at least at the fabric to skin margin. Also, if you would be ditch/donning your mask underwater, you might lose the cap.
The cap is meant to be cool alternative to a swim cap. It stays on, doesnt pull my precious remaining hair out, is quite confortable. Never thought to wear it with a mask and wouldnt recommend it for that purpose but for what it is...superb product. I'm sure I still look like a dork in it, but that's just me.
I bought a skull cap for a week long diving trip to Bonaire. I did 12 dives and did not have a problem with my mask leaking. I can see where there might be a leaking issue if you put the top edge of the mask over the edge of the cap, but that is easy to avoid. I am very happy with the cap and saw quite a few other divers wearing them.
Not if you put your mask under the scull cap.
It will not leak as long as you put the mask underneath.
no you put the scap above the mask. worked great
Mask needs to be under the scap.
