The Aqua Sphere Seal Mask 2.0 takes all the great aspects of the brand's original Seal Mask and updates it with newer, more modern features. Essentially, the Seal Mask 2.0 is a lighter and more streamline version of the original mask. Its renewed design combines the best features of a mask and goggle to create a hybrid device. It seamlessly blends the comfort and visibility of a mask with the streamline profile of a swim goggle. The refurbished Aqua Sphere Seal Mask 2.0 is great for recreational swimmers, open water enthusiasts, or anyone else looking for a panoramic underwater view and streamline fit.
This modern swim mask is equipped with some of the most dependable and long lasting materials. The wide lens is made from scratch-resistant, ultra durable Plexisol. It is able to withstand minor dings and surface marks in order to keep the lens performing great. The Seal Mask 2.0's lenses are also treated with an anti-fog coating to keep a swimmer's vision as clear as possible. Add in a few drops of Aqua Sphere's own Anti-Fog solution to help strengthen the mask's built in coating. And to keep your eyes further protected, the lenses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. The Aqua Sphere mask is available in either clear or smoke tinted lenses. And to add a bit more style to your swim, the swim mask's frame comes in black with green accents or transparent blue with silver accents. To keep your mask looking great for as long as possible, store it safely in the Aqua Sphere Goggle Case. It's designed to hold and protect the Seal Mask 2.0, but works great with any other swim goggle as well.
The Seal Mask 2.0 features a patented curved frame design. This allows the mask to seamlessly form to the face to create an even better underwater experience. The rounded frame helps swimmers get a great panoramic view, while the soft silicone skirt creates a comfortable, leak resistant seal. The inside of the Aqua Sphere mask's silicone skirt has been updated with special matte and shiny designated zones. This design helps increase the mask's watertight seal and enhances the overall comfort of the device. In addition to the great fit on the face, the swim mask is also fitted with a durable, rip-resistant silicone strap. The strap adjusts with new micro-metric level buckles, which helps divers get a quick and easy precise fit.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool strapped on the new Aqua Sphere Seal Mask 2.0's and got to work in the water. Swimmers enjoyed all the updates that Aqua Sphere put into the improved version of a 15-year-old classic mask. The extra wide, wrap-around lenses were able to provide swimmers with maximum visibility. The panoramic view was unhindered by the mask's low-lying profile. Swimmers loved the new matte and shiny surfaces on the silicone skirt, which really did help create more comfortable, and less harsh watertight fit. While it may take a bit of time adjusting the mask on the first fit, the micro-metric buckles help ensure that you get a secure and comfortable fit.
The Bottom Line
The Aqua Sphere Seal Mask 2.0 is a modern swim mask that's able to remain low and streamline while worn. If you're an open water swimmer or recreational diver, you're going to love this mask!
