Your Full Face Snorkel Storge Is a Priority!
As we have discussed in previous articles, it's super important to look after your full face snorkel and give it regular check-up to ensure longevity. Another important factor or maintaining your full face snorkel is where you store it! Too often people just toss their full-face snorkel anywhere, leaving it sandy, wet and often in non-ideal environments. If you take the time to place your Reef Mask somewhere dry and safe it will last much, much longer. Below we go over the appropriate steps to ensure your full face snorkel is stored correctly.
The first step to taking care of full face snorkel is to ensure there is no sand on the mask, giving it a quick wash in warm water and wiping it down with a towel. Once dry it's time to place your full face snorkel in its waterproof bag, next place the bag somewhere dry and safe, we recommend somewhere high in a cupboard. You want to ensure the bag is as tight as possible to stop dust building up in the bag and clogging up the masks air vents.
These issues can also be avoided by placing the bag in an area where dust build-up isn't common. Remember to always make sure your full face snorkel isn't wet when it goes back into the bag, this can lead to an unpleasant damp experience when you take the mask out next! We strongly recommend after wiping down your mask, you leave it out in the sun for 30 minutes to ensure it is fully dry.
We currently stock two different styles of full-face snorkels with the traditional 2021 full face mask and the double breather valve design. Each style is designed from high-quality materials, ensuring they are usable and enjoyable for the long term. Both these two different designs of full-face snorkel come with full 180 degrees viewing through the lens, anti-leak seal technology so water cant enter the mask and no breathing nozzle so you can breathe through your mouth and nose.
Overall Reef Mask full-face snorkels are built the Aussie way, tough! Children often use our full-face snorkels and they last years despite the rough handling, even if you don't put too much effort into maintaining them a Reef Mask will last a minimum of two years. In saying all that, we always recommend following the above tips to ensure you and your family have multiple years of full-face snorkel fun.
