First impressions and usage
The Azorro Blue L/XL mask looks like an average snorkeling mask. Attaching the snorkel is not easy. Once you finally do manage to attach it, it’s impossible to detach. This isn’t very handy if you want to pack your mask for travel.
Putting the mask on is easy thanks to the soft elastic straps. However, it is not a comfortable fit because of the ridges in the silicone edge that press against your cheekbones. The mask fogs up immediately out of water.
It also fogs during snorkeling. We managed to stay dry because the seal is good underwater during snorkeling, doing a surface dive and swimming. The field of vision is large, but distorted. The most annoying feature however is that the snorkel vibrates when you breathe – this is terribly irritating.

A mask with a vibrating snorkel that fogs up. Although your face stays dry, we don’t recommend it.
