My wife and I mixed this set with another we had (we traded flippers) and were for the most part really happy with everything. I used the snorkel and mask, and was ultimately happy with these products. The mask fit well, didn't leak, and provided great clarity with an initial lense cleansing with a few dabs of toothpaste, and then a few sea drops every couple dives down... The snorkel itself was awesome and really helped keep water out when the waves got a little rough...
My wife, brother-in-law, and mother all used the flippers, and eventually, we lost one of the snap pieces that keeps the strap attached to the flipper... but this might be due to aggressive fumbling while in the water. A great advantage to these is that they're much shorter than a typical flipper, and are really easy to pack on a trip.
Great set for traveling
We bought four sets of these for ourselves and our kids (older) to travel to Turks & Caicos with. It was the best thing we ever did. The set is compact enough to pack well in your suitcase, and it eliminated the need to drive around looking for equipment to rent (and was cheaper because once you've rented one time you've essentially bought them). Whenever we wanted to snorkel, we just jumped in the water and went. It also eliminated the worry of used equipment that hasn't been well cleaned. The compact size of the fins was perfect. They work well but take up little room in the suitcase and you can actually walk in them. You don't need huge fins for off-shore snorkeling. Overall great buy.
On occasion the masks did leak a little, but quick adjustments solved that problem.
Great Snorkel Set
My boyfriend and I take vacations where we have the opportunity to snorkel, every time. This year we decided to purchase our own snorkel gear, the rental gear just grosses me out. After a lot of research we decided on US Divers, Diva for me and Admiral for him. What a great value! The fins were amazing on the corral reefs - great maneuverability! This was the first time we had full dry snorkels, amazing for snorkelers like us who LOVE to dive. The mask has amazing visibility, though men - remember to shave before diving! My boyfriend didn't shave one day and had a bit of an issue with slight leakage in the mask - he knows better, so please just remember this is not an issue with the mask!
Great choice for the money!
We bought (4) Sets of the US Divers Snorkel (2 womens and 2 mens) and other than the foot strap clip coming off during snorkeling during the third day of use the equipment is great. The shorter fins fit inside your suit case which is great because you don't have to rent a set everytime you go somewhere. Very comfortable set of snorkel equipment.
This is mine & spouses second set of U.S. Divers Snorkel sets. Other set has longer fins. Spouse got the Diva set, See thru front bag makes it easier to spot whose set is whose. Wanted something with shorter fins to fit in carry-on. Fit is perfect with swim boots on. Would recommend this brand anytime. Price couldn't be beat!
Bought this set for our cruise vacation. We like to do a lot of snorkeling and this equipment was perfect. The mask seals around the face well, fins are shorter and thus more easy to pack in luggage, and snorkel tube is great with the purge valve and auto seal when diving underwater. All in all, a great purchase.
Best bang for your buck!!
I have had this snorkeling set for a few weeks now...and I have used it several times. I love it! It is great for beginner or advanced alike. The mask is nice and adjusts well. The snorkel works as advertised! And the fins are super portable. You are able to move with ease and very quick I might add.
Great gear, great prices!
I had purchased a better mask for one of the two sets, so I used the included one as a back up. All masks fogged after 20 minutes of snorkeling in 85 degree water, however we still snorkeled at least 3 hours a day! Very satisfied and glad we bought vs renting. Planning next years trip!
Glad I Bought This Set!
Would highly recommend this set. The Mast fit well and did not leak. I used an anti fog spray. The flippers were a little tight. I'm a size 8 (bought size M), but have very wide feet so expected it. The snorkel did not leak and was comfortable.
Perfect for travel!
I prefer to take my own snorkeling gear when traveling & these fit in my carry-on. I used them for snorkeling around the resort in Jamaica as well as on resort-sponsored snorkel trips to the nearby reefs. I was very satisfied with the fit & performance.
