Swimstar 2020 is one of the most comfortable and easy-to-use full face snorkel masks on the market. The main obstacle to snorkeling is the difficulty in breathing underwater with a snorkel. The normal snorkel mouthpiece is too intrusive, uncomfortable and even unhygienic. SwimStar did years of research to design this Snorkel mask to create the best possible experience.
DESIGN: [Foldable] the snorkel folds down into the mask instead of you having to remove it for storage. [100% Dry] A dry top snorkel at the top of the mask prevents water from entering the mask.
