Mares X-VU Liquid Skin Scuba Diving Mask Review

Overview

When choosing a scuba diving mask, it is important that you pay unreserved attention to the comfort that the chosen mask provides. Because you don’t want to be caught underwater with a mask that gives you great discomfort. In this Mares Liquid Skin mask review, we shall be looking into how this dynamic scuba mask provides the very best of comfort to you while still delivering premium efficiency.

This premium mask is made of low-profile design but with twin lens windows making it provides an improved user experience for divers who opt for it. One outstanding feature of this Mares mask is the custom patented Liquid Skin technology that was employed in its fabrication. This is softer than the standard silicone by some 45% thus making it way better and more comfortable in using that silicone-based material masks.

For strapping to the head and keeping in place, this mask has a two-buttoned strap buckle feature that is attached to the skirt. By all standards, this makes it quite fitting and easier to get on for all kind of scuba divers regardless of earlier exposure to the mask.

By attaching the buckles to the skirt masks have superior hydrodynamics because the strap fits closer to the head, making this a low volume mask, in addition, the tension exerted by the strap acts on the skirt and not directly on the frame reducing the pressure of the frame against the face. The Ergo Buckles uses the most innovative design in the world. These buckles make adjusting the split strap fast and easy. Sturdy yet compact, they are designed specifically to optimise the advantage of skirt mounted buckle system.

This light weight mask has a skirt with a double feathered edge for an improved seal, easy to squeeze nose well allows one handed equalisation, tempered glass lenses, and quick adjusting buckles. Mask comes with a mask box.

Mares Liquid Skin Mask ReviewThe X-VU LiquidSkin is the first completely new 2-lens mask using LiquidSkin technology after the X-vision. Above and beyond the lush comfort that it provides through its great skirting, an additional soft silicone part is injected in the nose area acting like an anti-shock bumper.

With its twin-lens low-profile design, the X-Vu features Mares’ patented Liquidskin technology, which the company says is 45-percent softer than standard silicone. Testers who have dived with the X-VU concurred to this fact there was a noticeable softness and slickness about the Liquidskin. The X-Vu also has quick-adjust, two-button strap buckles attached to the skirt that testers found to make the fitting process easier. The FOV was good for a mask of this style and design, but most of all, the Liquidskin delivers on comfort. It is best for divers who are prone to facial discomfort caused by stiffer skirting.

Liquid Skin is a Bi-silicone exclusive technology. It fuses two types of silicone: a firmer portion for support structure and a softer portion for contact with your face, 45% softer on the skin of unparalleled comfort. 270% greater elasticity for a perfect fit. By attaching the buckles to the skirt masks have superior hydrodynamics because the strap fits closer to the head, making this a low volume mask, also the tension exerted by the strap acts on the skirt and not directly on the frame reducing the pressure of the frame against the face.
