The volume of air contained in the Easybreath is much greater than that contained in a traditional mask; beyond depths of 1 metre, the pressure of the mask on the face becomes very uncomfortable. When you free dive, you need to reduce the pressure. However, with the Easybreath this is not possible because your nose is not accessible.
Why isn't the snorkel of the Easybreath very long?
Contrary to what you might think, the snorkel of the Easybreath sticks out of the water more than a traditional snorkel. A traditional snorkel seems longer because it starts from the mouth rather than the top of the head like the Easybreath. To guarantee breathing in accordance with current standards, we cannot make the snorkel any longer.
What size Easybreath should I choose?
The Easybreath is available in 3 sizes which cover 90% of faces. For children from 6 to 10 years the choice of XS is mandatory, teenagers and women should opt for the S/M size, and men for the M/L size. To choose the right size when in the store, tighten the mask so that it fits against your face: There should be no gap between your chin and the bottom of the mask.

How does the dry-top system stop water from entering?
It was developed to stop water from getting into the snorkel in choppy conditions, small waves on the surface or when the user leans their head too far forward to observe the seabed. There is a float in the snorkel that rises when you dive and blocks the tube. After diving, remember to blow out when returning to the surface to make sure that the float descends.
Why was the size XS discontinued?
The "dry top" snorkel concept is difficult to explain to a child 6-10 years old. As such, some children react with panic when the snorkel blocks up to prevent water from entering. Now, we are proud to have designed the first "dry top release" system in the world! If the child puts their head under water, the snorkel will close off so as not to let in water, but the child will still be able to breathe as soon as they come back up to the surface, even before the dry top float falls back down.
How does the exclusive anti-fog concept work?
It works best in waters over 18°C and is based on the fact that fresh air breathed in is projected onto the front window before reaching the nose or mouth. The moisture-laden air you exhale is evacuated through the silicone and plastic side connections that expel the air out through the snorkel. In this way, the air constantly renewed. This is the same principle as the ventilation of your car windscreen.
What precautions should I take with my Easybreath mask?
Pay attention to sand! Avoid letting your Easybreath mask come into contact with sand as this can scratch the window of the mask. If sand is present, do not use force to clip the snorkel into place. Rinse the snorkel and mask before connecting them. Sand can also clog the float valve inside the snorkel. Rinse the snorkel vigorously or use a key that you can fit through the rear vents of the snorkel to unblock the float valve, then rinse the snorkel.
