Material.mask for Bali scuba diving are most often made from silicone rubber. Silicone rubber is usually translu-cent, though manufacturers sometimes add coloring agents to make it black, or a translucent color, which is primarily to make the mask look better. Why not be styl-ish and functional? softer and more comfortable, usually looks better, and doesn't usually irritate sensitive skin. You may see neo-prene masks in use, but they tend to be the exception rather than the rule.

Selection and Purchase

When buying for scuba diving, your two most important selection factors are fit and comfort. This is particularly true for your mask, because a mask that doesn't fit well will leak and/or irri-tate you and take the fun out of the Bali scuba dive. (Note: You needn't suffer for style. Bali scuba Dive equipment comes in enough variety that you can accommodate fit and comfort first, yet still look good. (You can buy almost everything in basic black, too.)

To test a mask for a proper fit, use the "sniff" test. Place it gently against your face without using the strap and inhale through your nose. A properly fitting mask will pull into place by suction and stay as you inhale. If vou have to push or twist the mask to make it seal, try a different one. After finding some that fit, try pinching your nose with each on to see which is easiest.
 


If you need visual correction, some masks accept prescription lenses. You'll want to think about this when buying a mask, because not all masks do this readily. Atlantis Bali scuba Dive Center, Resort and Instructor can help you pick out a mask that's right for you. If you need visual correction, some masks accept prescription lenses.

Atlantis PADI Bali scuba Dive Center, Resort and Instructor can help you pick out a mask that's right for you. Manufacturers coat new masks with a protective chemical that you need to scrub off or you won't be able to defog the mask. To remove the film, use a soft cloth to gently scour the glass inside and out with a non-gel toothpaste or other low abrasion cleaner with fine grit that can remove the film without scratching the glass. Be sure to do this before your confined water on a Bali scuba dive.
