The Speedo Rift Pro Swim Mask takes the best features from both a mask and goggle. It combines the comfort and panoramic vision of a mask with the low profile performance of a swim goggle. Itís one of the best recreational swim masks available!
Perfect Outdoor Mask
This low profile swim mask is ideal for lap-loving swimmers that want to take their fitness routine into the great outdoors. The extra wide lenses give swimmers enhanced peripheral vision to help keep an eye on their surroundings. Every single part of this mask was designed to enhance the quality of vision and comfort when in the water. Itís design is fairly similar to other Speedo mask hybrid products. If you are already familiar with the lower-profile Rift Pro Goggles or the streamlined Hybrid Swim Mask, then you will feel comfortable sporting the Rift Pro Swim Mask.
Comfortable Yet Secure
The Speedo Rift Pro is surprisingly comfortable for an open water mask. Itís soft frame molds and bends to the curves of the face. It provides a snug, leak-proof seal without causing any discomfort or harsh suction. The TPR mask skirt remains soft around the delicate eye area, no matter how long your outdoor swim lasts.
Specially Designed Lenses
The durable PC lenses were specifically designed to help enhance peripheral vision and reduce brightness and glare. Itís the lenses themselves that make this swim mask ideal for outdoor use. Both the clear and colored lens options provide crisp, clear vision both indoors and out. The Rift Pro Mask is simple enough for recreational use, yet sleek enough for open water fitness routines.
Open Water Swimming Safety
When open water swimming, itís best to have safety equipment on hand in case of emergency (or just an uncomfortable situation). To ensure that your swim stays always crystal clear, add a few drops of Speedoís Anti-Fog Solution to keep pesky fogging at bay. And while you might be able to see clearly with the Rift Pro Mask, you have to do your part to ensure that boats and other watercrafts can see you clearly as well. Try sporting an AquaSpotter by Goat Gear, which features a brightly colored flag situated atop a pole and is attached to the body by a neoprene belt. It adds virtually no drag and makes you visible to other snorkelers, lifeguards, and watercraft.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers found that this mask formed to fit any and all face shapes, without being too tight or causing discomfort. The maskís skirt is wide enough to give an ample amount of suction and stability. The lenses provide a fairly good amount of peripheral vision and the swimmers remarked that the Speedo Rift Pro Swim Mask would make an excellent all-purpose recreational or open water swim mask.
The Bottom Line
The Speedo Rift Pro Swim Mask is the ultimate mix of comfort and performance. If youíre open water swim isnít as clear as youíd like it to be, pick up this swim mask and see (literally!) how it can make your swim as worry and leak free as possible.
