    I recently got a X Vision Mask to replace another X Vision Mask. I took this mask out and toothpasted the lens. I then placed this mask back in the case. Today I went to go diving and the mask had cracks in it. I had not touched this mask since I had cleaned the mask. I had another X Vision fail at the same place this mask had cracks at. This mask had cracks under where lens lapses over the mask. This is driving me crazy. Has anyone else had problems with their X Vision?

    Thanks

    Sean,
    This is unusual for the XVision mask. Please take your mask to the dealer you purchased it from. Your mask will be covered under warranty, especially if it is brand new. As a product goes we have had nothing but great success and feedback about our X series masks. I am sorry you have had bad luck and I am sure your replacement will give you nothing but great vision and good diving. Thanks for buying our product.

    Best,

    I had a "Pure Vision" mask which developed cracks around the frame soon after I got it. It was replaced by Mares and I have had no problems with the new one.

    I took my mask back to where I purchased it. I was talking to a DM at the LDS where I had purchased it. He had this happen to him three times he said. He said his masks cracked the same place where I was having issues.
