    I started out with aqualung's total dry snorkel and switched to this after one season diving for abalone. What a difference having a good snorkel makes. With the total dry on calm days it was o.k. but as soon as it got choppy the valve was closing too often and interrupting my breathing. With the impulse 3 I never have this problem and the dry top diverts all water from going down into my mouth unless the snorkel is completely submerged by a wave for a couple seconds. I got the rigid pipe model as opposed to the flex model so when I'm ascending fast after a dive it doesn't feel like it's trying to twist out of my mouth due to the flexible tubing.

    I bought this snorkel online because my local shop did not have a replacement mouthpiece for previous snorkel. I liked the reviews for the Impulse 3. However, when I went to use it, I was not happy. I had trouble finding a comfortable position for it where it would not frequently flood. I am used to having a flexible section and this snorkel is rigid (I can't remember if the one in the picture online was exactly like the one I got or not). The picture on the package that came with my Impulse 3 has a snorkel with a flexible section. I have never had a snorkel that flooded so frequently and that I actually had to come up and dump the water out because there was too much water to clear with one breath. I finally rented a snorkel for the rest of the week. I complained about my Impulse, and the guys told me why theirs was better and how to use theirs properly. As it turned out, I discovered that I could twist the bottom of my Impulse (the rental also did this) and make the angle better. The packaging doesn't mention this and I have never had a snorkel that did this before. Anyway, this helped the flooding and the guys pointed out that I should hold my head differently for snorkeling than for diving, and this also helped. In the end, the Impulse worked at least as good as the rented one. The mouthpiece is softer, but also a little bigger than I would like it to be. Also, I found the clip to be difficult to use, compared to other clips I have had. When I was scuba diving, I just gave up on the snorkel, and used my regulator. Now that I am home, I am hoping my dive shop can get the part for my old snorkel. I did like the color and the sleek look of the Impulse. Also, on a slightly calmer day, after several adjustments, I did get the Impulse 3 to work without frequent floods, but I wasted a lot of time thinking about it. I think that the packaging should mention the adjustable part, show the correct angle in the water, and tell how to use the clip. Perhaps all of this is my mistake for buying on line, as what I learned about this snorkel, I learned from guys in dive shops I visited-I was in Maui and there are a lot of shops. They told me this one was better for snorkeling, and that the one with flex was better for scuba, but I think the positive reviews on line were by scuba divers. Sorry to be so negative, but you asked.

      Doing more drift diving in fairly rough water and this snorkel works great while waiting for pick up. Didn't carry snorkel for diving in past years but didn't do as many drift dives either.

      Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung Impulse 3 Snorkel:

      I bought the snorkel because it was on sale at a great price, and my original snorkel was annoying. The Aqua Lung was great for breathing on the surface, but it was too heavy for my mask. During the dive, it was continually pulling at the strap and causing my mask to leak. I tried readjusting on the second dive to no avail, and replaced it with another snorkel. I have added the Aqua Lung snorkel to the spare dive kit.
      It might be great for snorkeling or with an Aqua Lung mask, but for me it was like a sonar buoy on the side of my head.
      It is high quality and easy breathing, but just too heavy for me, and I am not a fan of wearing a snorkel either.

        This is the driest, most comfortable snorkel I've ever used. I've been in and under the water since 1958. For me, there is no other snorkel in second place.

            Very satisfied with the Impulse 3 snorkels. I run a small snorkel shop on the island of Kauai and the response from my customers have been great. I have used the Impulse 3 before I placed my order and it is my snorkel of choice. I had the Impulse 2 for 4 years and I hope to have the Impulse 3 for at least that long. Luckily living here, I do get a chance to snorkel a couple of times a week.
