Find mask that fits nicely to your face ... try & match the mask frame colour with your fins or the lines on your wetsuit.

If you plan to do UW photography, go for Black silicon colour.

Trend is to have low volume mask BUT high volume mask looks good too ... I am using low volume mask.

If you wear contact lens or spec & need powered lens for your mask, get 2 window/bio mask frame .... I am using mono frame.

I am using Oceanic Shadow.

GULL & TUSA have nice looking mask .... drop by to your local dive store for more information &  checking the mask range.

;D

You can try Global Scuba at One Utama. I bought my Tusa Platina mask there. It's now my secondary mask after a small rip at the silicone skirt was discovered (after 2 years).

I now use a Sherwood mask.

there is such a thing called liquid googles. swimming googles that you wear flooded all the time......wont fog...dont have to compensate.....how do you see?....they mount a corrective lens inside so you can see underwater...the catch?...RM 1000 per pair....you supply your own googles.

Biasa try once... the so-called HydroOptic. Sempoi cam angkasawan. Ader 2 valve kat bawah tu... nak clearing tersangat ler mudah.. (masa demo/try ter ler)...Tapi kalu buat kuak lentang at depths..senang senang je air masuk...

I'm using Tabata Zaboon je..   Seac Sub X Free tu ok tak??

Pasai apa kalau nak buat uw photography kena mask yang kaler hitam??

low vol & high vol bezanya the effort it takes to clear the mask. Also some high vol mask allow you to fix prescription lens inside the mask using a plastic spec frame. The advantage is that you can get your exact prescription instead of the OEM standard lens.

black skirt around the mask gives you tunnel vision (good for macro photographers who will not be distracted by the whale shark next to them but not if you're claustophobic). a minor point i think.

asians ada advantage - kita boleh pakai low vol mask that is very close to the eyes (coz banyak ada hidung kemek) to give a "frame free" view

Kalau nak check mask fit muka ke tak - letak mask di muka without putting on the straps, lepas tu inhale sikit thru your nose - kalau mask lekat, ngam lah tu

vision wise..biasa laa my rule of thumb....kalau pakai mask tu and tunduk boleh nampak pusat...memang field of vision cantik

also make sure the frame of the mask tak kena the bridge of your eye sockets (ape name saintifik bahagian ni haa?)

kalau kena, nanti can get uncomfortable during long durations..especialy true for low volume mask.

hello unsaid.

as i mention in your intro tread, we cant advice on price or discount. its better to talk to the retailers themself. and dont worry, the dive shops here are not the cut throat type.

price can range from RM100-400 depending on the type of mask. as for on how to find a suitable mask, please refer to the past tread for info.

if you go to global scuba, please ask for Boo and say Alfian refered you to them. you will be taken care of.

just bought an Apollo Bio-Metal mask after my previous Oceanic Shadow tore on the silicone skirting. Had no idea about this mask when i bought it, but it was an emergency purchase for work. asked the office to send one out to me without trying it on first, which made me a little nervous about the no-refund policy. But the mask fit like a glove and is much more comfortable than my Oceanic Shadow.

My only rant is that the APollo Bio-metal Mask is f@#king expensive. I've never EVER had to pay what i paid for a mask. And since it was KK prices, even more so. The only consolation for my pockets being emptied is that its a really comfortable mask. Hopefully skirting can be replaced if tears. I notice that the silicone skirting around the nose is extremely thin, which may make it subject to pre-mature tearing if not properly taken care of.
