Are full face snorkel masks safe for children?
Full face snorkel masks are not too different to traditional snorkel masks sets when it comes to safety. Always supervise children when swimming and snorkeling. There are many brands available to buy both online and in stores. The best full face masks are made with quality materials, but innovation and quality comes with a price tag.
A lot of the cheap full face masks are direct knock-offs of good quality brands. Many versions are now being made in China using inferior quality materials. Sadly, some are very poorly made, with one common complaint is that there are leaks in joins where there shouldn't be.
It's inevitable that kids grow and understandable that you don't want to spend a fortune on a product they're quickly going to grow out of.
When choosing a full face snorkel mask, make sure it's a genuine brand as there is a difference in comfort for your child as well as the price. Sometimes it pays to spend a little bit more, and have peace of mind. If you buy a decent mask, then it should last long enough to be handed on to younger siblings or cousins after your child grows out of it.
