    due to less prominent cheek bones, many masks don't fit so well. Any suggestions from divers that have this dilemma or have asian dive buddies and know what they use?

    You might consider the Tusa Visualator....

    Tabata USA, Inc. - NEW : M-14 VISUALATOR [M-14]

    I believe that many stores offer a very similar design by other suppliers, I have seen both the larger and a smaller junior version in St Thomas..........

    Hope this helps........M

    If a wider face, the new Oceanic Pioneer is great.

    Asian usuallyhave flatter and wider face, myself included. I found a few masks fit me and my asian friend pretty well, they are Oceanic Shadow, Mare X-vision, and Cressi big eye. You may want to take a t look at them.

    I've use the Promate (something.. it's a frameless mask) which is the same as the Tilos excel which fit me just fine.

    I'm from the Philippines, been using Mares X-vision for couple of years already.. the best mask i ever wore.. Cressi big eyes and atomic frame less is also good fit for Asians.

    My GF is Filipina with the flat and wide face asian contours; she uses a Tusa Platina mask which she is happy with.

    I use a Tusa Pano Geo mask and it's the best one I've had (I am Asian). It fits a lot of different faces.

    I have noticed that Tusa is popular with Japanese - partially because it's a Japanese company but it may be due to the designs. I would also second the Platina, especially for those with smaller faces.
