Full-face snorkel masks are available in all shapes and sizes. This is what the DuikeninBeeld testing team thought about the SEAC Unica mask.
The snorkel of the Seac Unica snorkel mask is easy to attach, much easier than it is with its “little brother” Libera. Detaching the snorkel takes some dexterity, otherwise it’s impossible.
The 2019 version of the Unica is truly an improvement over the old Unica model that we tested in 2018. The snorkel mask has a nice breathing circuit system that allows the inhaled air to enter via the snorkel and leave via the section around the eyes. You then suck the air into your mouth through the valves in the orinasal pocket. The exhaled air travels via the edge of the mask to the vents at the top.
The Unica’s field of vision is large, the elastic straps are flexible, the silicone edge that fits to the face is somewhat stiff, but the entire mask is comfortable despite this.
The field of vision is good during swimming and the mask forms a good seal. There was no leakage and the breathing comfort is excellent. During exhalation, you can hear the sound of the exhaled bubbles; unlike many other masks, the air comes in at the top of this mask which creates this noise.
As a whole, it’s a comfortable mask that works well, but the sound made during exhalation can be distracting for the wearer.
