    The Ocean Reef G. Diver I'm wearing in my avatar.
    1. It doesn't fog.
    2. It doesn't leak.
    3. Very unlikely that another diver is going to knock it loose/off
    4. No dry mouth.
    5. No jaw fatigue from biting on a mouthpiece.
    6. Never have to touch it to equalize (no more pinching my nose)
    7. I can set it up to breathe through my nose if I want (which is how it's supposed to be set but I'm weird)
    8. Cold water protection
    9. With additional COMS unit, I can talk to other divers provided they have COMS, too
    10. Look at it.....It looks cool as s**t!

    Right now I have by far my favorite mask I've ever owned in my 34 years of diving.
    A Mares X vision
    I've never had a mask fit and seal so well, even when I have a goatee.
    But everyone is different, so I advise putting many on, check for comfort, seal, easy nose pinch for clearing, and low profile.

    Mares X vison were great but had a few skirt failures.

    Now I have ordered one like this. When reading reviews I realized this is a mask I need to try as I am not a scuba diver, but a combination of freediver and snorkeler. It is going to be interesting to see how much the smaller volume helps.

    one notice: If you like to have long and good life for you mask - handle it with care. Beware to drop it to the sand or stones. It could be scratched easy.
    And never try to remove oil from the "glases" (it is plastic) with lighter or toothpaste. Use only soap or washing liquid.
    And after one week of usage of Aquasphere try to make one dive with normal mask. :)
    Than you will feeling great advantage of Aquasphere :)

    Minimal volume... it is nothing, until you have (free)dive not deeper than 20-30m...
    If you have dives to 10-15m - small volume is comfortable, but not so strongly required.
