WE TESTED 24 SINGLE- AND DUAL-LENS MASKS
1ZEAGLE SCOPE DUAL MSRP $99.95 CONTACT ZEAGLE.COM The jumbo lenses might give the Scope Dual a startled-alien look, but they earned the top score for field of view. The view was further improved by a tight-fi tting skirt overmolded onto the frame. The silicone strap has single-button buckles that operate flawlessly, and the Scope is also available with an elastic strap. Thanks to its top scores for comfort, adjustability and ease of clearing, and being selected as a favorite by more divers than any other mask, the Scope Dual was our Testers Choice. 2BEUCHAT MAXLUX S MSRP $58.41 CONTACT BEUCHAT-DIVING.COM The hypoallergenic, baby-soft skirt on this frameless mask tied the top score for comfort and was very effective at keeping water out. It earned the highest score for dryness in its category, and a number of test divers chose it as a favorite. For outstanding performance and an unbeatable price, the Maxlux S was our Best Buy for single-lens masks. 3AKONA BREEZE MSRP $35 CONTACT AKONA.COM Holding its own against some much-pricier competition, this mask delivered solid performance and comfort at a bargain price. The boxy frame takes prescription lenses and the frame-mounted buckles scored very well for ease and security of adjustments. The effective, streamlined skirt keeps the internal volume small, making it easy to clear and equalize. The Breeze was our Best Buy. 4TUSA M3001 FREEDOM TRI- QUEST MSRP $89 CONTACT TUSA.COM The Freedom Tri-quest’s supple skirt earned high marks for comfort and dryness. Where the mask really excels is its panoramic field of view, made possible by the domed windows on the sides. The comfy skirt and unobtrusive frame can make you forget you’re even wearing a mask.
