Mares Essence Liquidskin Mask

 

The Mares Essence mask is a all rounder mask, if you are scuba diving, it has great vision due to the single lens design, if you are spearfishing, it is very low volume. Where the silicone and glass come together and blend, it creates this mask that is truly one of a kind. Light weight and foldable at the buckles prevents this mask from cracking where any dives masks do. With a single glass piece, this mask is a popular pick due to having maximum vision. It comes in Black or White (for scuba). The black silicone is generally used by spearfishermen however many divers do like the black silicone, it really is a personal preference.

 

Being low volume means that there is less air inside the mask when being worn. When heading underwater, you need to equalize, this means you need to equalize the air inside your mask to prevent for mask squeeze. When on scuba diving, this is easier as we have spare air to use from our tanks, however when spearfishing, you are on breathe hold so you need less air in your mask so you don't use up too much breathe equalizing. This is why the spearfishing masks are low volume. Getting the perfect fitted mask is something that ideally needs to be done in store, however we do realize here at Dive Warehouse that it can not always be done. If you have any questions or concerns on this mask feel free to contact us and we will answer any questions.

 

How to look after your mask:  All of our masks here at Dive Warehouse are made from 100% silicone with tempered glass. When a mask is made, it gets a thin layer of silicone on the inside of the glass. This is what causes it to fog. Anti-fog's will not work until it has been pre-cleaned, as to work it needs to reach the glass and with the silicone layer covering this, it cant work. To remove this layer of silicone, you will need to purchase a pre-cleaner or you can use toothpaste. These products have a slight abrasive in it and will scrub off that silicone layer. A blob of paste on to each lenses on the inside only, give it a good scrub and rinse off with fresh water. Repeat this process 3 times to ensure you have scrubbed off all of the silicone layer, then you can anti-fog. The glass will not get scratched as it is tempered. You can purchase a good quality anti-fog here at Dive Warehouse, or you can spit or lick the inside of the lens as spit is a natural anti-fog! After you have cleaned your mask and are no longer fogging, you will need to wash your gear after every use to prevent it from perishing. The best way to clean you mask and snorkel is to put them in a tub of fresh warm water and give them a good rinse. this will take off all of the salt and sand that you get from the ocean. Store them away in a dark dry place to prevent the silicone from turning an off color. The sun will do this if you store them in direct sunlight.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

How do I stop my mask from fogging?

 

A new mask will need to be cleaned first on the inside of the lenses to remove any residue from manufacturing, this is done with a mask lens cleaner. Then an anti-fog is to be placed on the inside of the lens before use. 

 

How do I know if the mask wont leak?

 

Place the mask on your face without the band, breathe in gently, if air is coming in then it will most likely leak. You do not want air air to be entering the mask.

 

I have a beard and my mask always leaks, what can I do?

 

With facial hair you can either shave it off (which most guys will not want to do) or you can place a layer of vasoline on your facial hair here the mask skirts sits and this will seal it up. The aim is to get all of your hair going in the same direction downwards. 

 

What is best - Clear silicone or Black silicone?

 

This is a personal preference and neither is better than the other. Black silicone will shield you eyes from the sun and tunnel your vision, clear silicone will open up your peripherals.

 

Which is the best brand?

 

The best brand of mask is the one that fits your face the best. They are all made with 100% silicone and tempered glass.  

 

What is the warranty?

 

The Mares warranty of the dive masks is 2 years. If you need to make a claim, the product will need to be sent back to Mares to be assessed before a decision is made.
