Considering most freediving masks are very low volume and built well, it really just comes down to comfort and fit. To achieve this you will need to try them on. Make sure that no parts of the frame are touching your face Comfort and volume is the most important things to consider.
More than that, what is the safest depth for freediving?
For most swimmers, a depth of 20 feet (6.09 metres) is the most they will free dive. Experienced divers can safely dive to a depth of 40 feet (12.19 metres) when exploring underwater reefs.
Even though, how do I keep my dive goggles from fogging up? Prevent Snorkel Mask Fogging in Four Steps. Clean your mask often, and then don't touch it inside. Clean it with toothpaste (paste, not gel), and a toothbrush, not your finger (because of oils). Use a small amount of toothpaste, and scrub the glass with it.
Basically, why is freediving so dangerous?
The sport is dangerous. Drowning is, of course, always a risk. But there are others. The ocean exerts tremendous pressure on the lungs as divers descend, and some experience "shallow-water blackout" and lose consciousness during the ascent.
