This is the first mask I have purchased, and I have been pleased with it. I chose this mask because of its purge feature and range of vision; and have been pleased with both features.

The mask fits well and does not leak. The purge feature works great and allows the mask to be cleared with ease when a little water does get inside. The nose piece is comfortable and allows room to grab when equalizing ears.

The lense appears to be of good quality and stays clear. I cleaned the interior of the lense with toothpaste when I first received the mask. I do not have any problems with fogging as long as I clean it with spit prior to diving.

The lense offers a good field of vision and crystal clear viewing. The clear skirt helps allow light inside, but also distracts from time to time with distorted images. I only notice the distraction when I begin the descent, but it goes unnoticed once I get busy enjoying the dive.

Overall, this has been a great purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good fit, clear view, with the purge.

I and two other dive masters could not get Scubapro UV to stop fogging. We used all the usual scrubs, spit and tricks, plus commercial anti fog solution. I suspect the side windows were molded in with too much silicone that filmed the glass.I started to think it was plastic rather than glass. I ended up buying a used mask that leaked to salvage my trip. The $20 dollar leaker was a big improvement. I expected more of Scubapro. The ScubaPro Frameless Single Window Mask would be a safer bet.

    Comments about Scubapro Scuba Pro Crystal VU-Plus Mask with Purge:

    This item can be good for Snorkeling but not for diving. When diving you want to the face mask to be tight so you wont get wanter inside and with the pressure the mask can get tight. Well the problem with this mask is the purge when the mask is tight. You can feel the purge right be your nose and it can be really really uncomfortable!! This suck when you're 30-60m feet under water and you have some hard plastic pushing into your nose.

        You can depend on Scubapro. I got away from them in the recent past because my local dive shop wasn't a dealer. I am now going to buy online and switch back to Scubapro.
