Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Product Guide: How to Fit and Buy Dive Masks

Written by Editor. Comments Off on Product Guide: How to Fit and Buy Dive Masks Posted in: Dive Gear Tips, Dive Masks, Scuba Product Guides

Because the fit is so important, Dive Gear Reviews urges you to not buy dive masks from an online retailer. You really do need to go to a brick and mortar store and try a new mask on in person, and preferrbly buy the very same mask you tried. No online discount is worth the risk of buying a mask that fits poorly.
