What are the differences compared with the old Easybreath model?
It has the same characteristics as the old model: 180° vision, anti-fog, easy to put on... and we have made the mask more robust, the skirt more comfortable, and breathing easier with the effort on breathing reduced by 20%. The Easybreath 500 is also equipped with a new innovation: the "dry-top-release". You will no longer have your breathing interrupted when a wave washes over.
Why can't you dive deep with the Easybreath mask?
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 some may 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 and not the top of the head like the Easybreath. To guarantee respiration that meets 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 kids aged 6 to 10 choose, the size XS.
From 10-year-olds and small faces opt for size S/M. For bigger faces use M/L.

Can I use the Easybreath if I have a beard?
Beards can be responsible for letting in significant amounts of water. We recommend that men shave their beards before using the Easybreath because facial hair can break the seal between the silicone skirt of the mask and your skin.
How does the exclusive anti-fogging concept work?
It works best in waters over 18 °C and is based on the fact that the fresh air breathed in is projected onto the front window before reaching the nose or mouth. Moisture-laden air you exhale is evacuated through the silicone and plastic side connections that send 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.
How does the dry-top system stop water from entering?
It was developed to stop water from getting into the snorkel when there is choppy water, 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.
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.
