    I recently lost my favorite mask. It was a tri-frame mask with high volume, excellent vision and it conformed to my face well. Very retro looking. I've been looking for a replacement. The glass on it said US Divers. Anyone have ideas what mask it is? Here's some photos of it

    And here's the same mask on a Marine but in black

    Yup definitely the U.S. Divers Hawaii 3. I have one and agree with the fit. It was an excellent mask I wish it had not been discontinued.

    Both Tusa and SubGear sell similar 3 window square masks. Masks at LeisurePro

    Just curious why you'd want a high volume mask?

    Yes it appears to be the Hawaii 3 mask. Thanks for the help!

    Normally I wouldn't go for a high volume mask but this one in particular had excellent vision and fit my face better than many other masks I had tried.

    I suspect if you were to try the Atomic Frameless you would let go of your old clunker and quit cruising ebay for a replacement that is likely to be rotten neoprene.

    I recently had the pleasure of renting this Hawaii 3 antique U.S Divers/aqualung mask in December of 2018. It was in Cancun Mexico with a very scetchy dive operation that I wish no one has to experience. The only good part was knowing that there was a mask that fits my big nose, prominent eyebrows and narrow temples. I searched Florida, Texas, and Louisiana over 15 brands and 48 different masks all tested to 15 ft at the dive shops test pool. The most identical fit for 2019 is the Aqualung Look 2. It is not a new mask now but was new to me and has had the best fit. Hope this helps! The addedplus to the look 2 is the added drop in lense feature that lets you adjust your lense to your vision or even add bifocal lenses.

    The Aqualung Wraparound is a high volume mask that I enjoy wearing.
