Instead of a single rounded lens, this design has a main central lens and a separate side view lens joined at at each "corner", left and right. On a recent trip to GBR, one corner seam let water leak in and flood the mask. Why SP needed to make a seam at each side in order to achieve wide vision is beyond me as there are better ways to bend glass, without having to join 2 flat pieces, and the edges are not even beveled. This is a leak disaster just waiting to happen, and it did happen to me, at 75 feet.

        Comments about Scubapro Scuba Pro Crystal VU-Plus Mask:

        I have been a certified SCUBA diver since 1989. This is the worst mask I have owned. It leaked from the first moment I put my face in the water. I tightened the strap to see if that would help and all it did was hurt my face from being so tight. The mask also had a tendency to fog up. When I tried to clear the mask by rinsing it, water would cling to the inside of the mask obscuring my vision. I couldn't do anything to keep this from happening. This mask caused me to want to snorkel less times than I had planned.
        I chose it because of SCUBAPRO's reputation for quality but was terribly disappointed.

        Comments about Scubapro Scuba Pro Crystal VU-Plus Mask:

        Only has a "one size fits all" sizing option. This is especially troublesome for my wife.
        I ordered 2 and immediately returned 1 (Kudu's to LP's for their great c/s and return policy!) The reason for the return was, after closer inspection, I noticed the silicone sealant used to seal the inside of the mask was poorly applied. It was smutched and uneven, with embedded voids and air bubbles, making a perfect watertight seal at depth highly doubtful.
        Also, the head strap swivel buckles are hanging off a rather feeble tiny silicone straps. I bet $$$ it will snap within the next 2 years, and probably when I'm sitting at 100ft off Cozumel.

          Comments about Scubapro Scuba Pro Crystal VU-Plus Mask:

          This was my first official SCUBA mask, however, was far from dissapointed. I have a slightly narrow face and had no issues with leaking. Very snug fit and was easy to adjust on the fly. I had a few issues with fogging but one flood and it went away for good. Mostly the fogging was due to the water temp vs outside temp when I tested them at the local dive pool. The only issue I felt I had was it seems that some residual water gathered in the nose piece and no matter what I did, it felt like it was still there but upon removal, nothing really was there to cause concern. ScubaPro has moved to one of the top of my lists for quality geear and goods.

            Poorly constructed. I had my first mask replaced becaused it leaked in the corner where the lenses are joined. The second mask also leaks also from the same place. Don't buy.

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            NEAL R G  Great mask. Great brand. Great price from Leisure Pro
            Shopper  Is this mask a newer version of the Cool Vu?
            DAVID S  I think so, but is poor quality, leaks between glass lens anf silicone seal. spend a few more dollars and go for tusa masks
            Shopper  Can this mask be fitted with corrective lenses?
            LeisurePro S  Unfortunately, not easily without a custom order. Most masks with prescription lenses are two-window versions. If you give our sales department a call at 888-805-3600 they can help you find a good mask with prescription lenses.
