Does this snorkel have a purge valve? I can't tell from the photographs or description.
Keep mine rolled up just in case.
This snorkel is self draining below the mouthpiece. It's a great snorkel if you don't like to wear a snorkel during your dive but want to have one in the pocket of your BCD for safety purposes. It's a great 2nd snorkel for a diver. I wouldn't recommend it for just snorkeling because it's not rigid.
Yes, Purge valve is right behind the mouthpiece... works well for a fold-up snorkel.
yes it has a purge valve
Hi Scott, Not as such, but easy to purge. Water does not access easily. I only use it as a backup if needed while diving in emergency, so it is safely tucked away in my BC. If I am going snorkeling, I prefer to use a harder encasing model. Hopes this help. If not, ask again. Jeanne
Yes it does have a purge valve.
No, it doesn't have a purge valve. But I've found the simpler the snorkel's construction, the less opportunity it has to leak and the longer it lasts. This is a basic snorkel that does the job for a SCUBA diver in a pinch as it won't clutter up your gear and is easy to store in a BCD. If you're not a diver and simply want a snorkel, you might consider a rigid one.
yes. It has a purge valve (I had to dig it out of my gear to check). A great unit if you do not like a tube on your mask or do so diving where a tube on the mask is a no-no. Jeff
Yes it does have a purge valve but I haven't had an opportunity to use it to see how it works.
Ugh, I just realized I just reviewed the wrong Item. I bought two stowables for the trip and reviewed the wrong one! Please ignore my previous post, the XS snorkel DOES have a purge valve.
No purge valve, just a smooth tube with a somewhat tear drop shape for added strength. It does work extremely well though and easily fit in my BC pocket. I had to fold it in thirds instead of rolling it, as the only velcro pocket on my BCD is tall and skinny, but it worked great all the same.
Yes. There is a purge valve.
No, the snorkle does not have purge valve, which I like, keeping with the "keep it simple" design of the snorkle. I have made over 150 dives using the snorkle and it has performed flawlessly.
It does have a purge valve. Excellent buy if you dislike having a bulky snorkel always attached to your mask. I keep mine rolled up in my BCD pocket just in case I ever need it. :)
Yes it does have a purge. It's a good enough snorkel to use full time and being able to carry it in a BC pocket is great!
