DiveLife neoprene mask strap
The mask strap was the item of the week prior to us leaving on the DL Malta trip so I thought it worth a try and took one with me to test on dives such as the Faroud and Imperial Eagle.
A brief summary is that the strap is a simple piece of kit yet very effective.
There are two webbing side straps that are securely stitched to the central wider neoprene back strap. The webbing straps easily fit into the standard mask clips. When setting the strap to your desired preset size these are locked in place via a simple buckle. It’s then ready for use.
The question is what’s different and indeed better about this strap when compared to the regular silicone/plastic straps?
There are several reasons, high on the list is simplicity. The ease of setting up and then ease of use have to be high on the list. In diving we often look to complexity as proof of effectiveness. In this case the simplicity of design is the winning aspect. The strap enables the mask to be donned and removed quickly, without it catching and without fuss. It slides easily over hair, head and hood without twisting of catching.
One likeable aspect was is that, when being used, the strap is extremely comfortable and can be easily moved around, if required.
The elasticity of the back strap and the lack of stretch on the side straps means that the mask can be simply adjusted using the neoprene rather than having to adjust the whole strap to allow the silicone to settle evenly.
Overall this piece of kit, whilst not life changing, is certainly an advance and I for one will be adding one to my reserve mask.
