Oh no! The words “Diving Full Face Mask” are displayed in large letters on the packaging of the Rucanor mask. Wrong! In spite of the expectation this creates, you cannot scuba dive wearing this type of mask. Fortunately, the instructions clearly state that the mask is only intended for snorkeling, but by the time you read this, you’ve probably already bought the mask.
We had trouble attaching the snorkel to the mask since there is no click system or lock, but we ultimately managed.
There was a loose membrane in our test mask…After putting the mask on, the area around the edges was somewhat uncomfortable but once it’s on, it fits well and breathing is easy. The pane does fog up slightly.
Once underwater however, we discovered a huge problem with the mask – it constantly fills up with water! We couldn’t see what was causing the problem, whether it was the membrane or purge valve or something else, but it was impossible to snorkel wearing this mask. Given these shortcomings, we don’t recommend this Rucanor snorkel mask.
