First impressions and usage
The Siliber Blue L/XL mask looks and feels like a cheap, plastic toy mask. This turns out to be an accurate assessment when we try to attach the snorkel. During the first attempt, small cracks already appear in the snorkel, and the o-ring designed to create a seal moves around. The second attempt ends up causing a tear in the snorkel. The mask’s silicone straps with their clip fastener make it easy to put on, but the quality of the plastic used in the clip leaves something to be desired, so the question is, how long will it last? The mask fogs up immediately after putting it on.
The mask also fogs up during snorkeling, doing a surface dive and swimming underwater. It also slowly fills up with water and there is a lot of distortion in the field of vision near the nose.

The quality of this mask is poor and is, at best, only suitable for use as a toy. If you would like to go snorkeling, we strongly recommend choosing another mask.
It might make a great mask to wear to a costume party though.
