Each piece of your scuba equipment performs a vital job. Whether it is your scuba mask or buoyancy compensator, you need equipment that functions well and withstands the elements.
If you choose a cheap mask, for example -- and there are plenty out there -- you are likely to get one made of plastic, instead of rubber or silicone. The mask will be stiff against your face, leak and crack. Limit these masks for your kids' horseplay in the pool.
The bottom line is to buy a quality mask that fits well and won't leak during your dive.
