What is the size of the Easybreath mask in the flippers and Easybreath mask kit?
If you choose a flipper size between EU 36/37 and 40/41, the mask is delivered in size S/M, for a size between 42/43 and 46/47, the mask is delivered in size M/L.
The Easybreath is available in 2 sizes. Children over the age of 10, teenagers, and women should choose the S/M size, and men the M/L size. To choose the right size in store, tighten the mask so that it fits against your face. There should be no gap between your chin and the bottom of the mask.
Why can't you free dive with the Easybreath mask?
The Easybreath mask contains much more air than a traditional mask. From depths of 1 m, the pressure of the mask on the face becomes very uncomfortable. When you freedive, you need to equalize the pressure afterwards. However, with the Easybreath, this is not possible because you cannot get at your nose.
Why isn't the snorkel of the Easybreath very long?
Contrary to what some may think, the snorkel of the Easybreath sticks out of the water more than a traditional snorkel. A traditional snorkel seems longer because it starts from the mouth and not the top of the head like the Easybreath. To guarantee respiration that meets current standards, we cannot make the snorkel any longer.
Can I use the Easybreath if I have a beard?
Beards can be responsible for letting in significant amounts of water. We advise users with beards to shave before using the Easybreath, because the beard hair can break the seal between the silicone skirt of the mask and your skin.
How does the exclusive anti-fogging concept work?
It works best in water over 18°C and is based on the fact that the fresh air breathed in is projected onto the front window before reaching the nose or mouth. Moisture-laden air you exhale is expelled through the silicone and plastic side connections that send the air out through the snorkel. In this way, air is constantly renewed. This is the same principle as the ventilation of your car's windshield.
How does the Dry-Top system stop water from entering?
It was developed to stop water from getting into the snorkel when there is choppy water, small waves on the surface, or when the user leans their head too far forward in order to observe the seabed. There is a float in the snorkel that rises when you dive and blocks the tube. After diving, remember to blow out when returning to the surface to make sure that the float descends.
What precautions should I take with my Easybreath mask?
Pay attention to sand! Avoid letting your Easybreath mask come into contact with sand as this can scratch the window of the mask. If sand is present, do not use force to clip the snorkel into place. Rinse the snorkel and mask before connecting them. Sand can also clog the float valve inside the snorkel. Rinse the snorkel vigorously or use a key that you can fit through the rear vents of the snorkel to unblock the float valve, then rinse the snorkel.

What is the difference between freediving and snorkelling?
At Subea, the Decathlon diving brand, we decided on a simple way to define the difference between our freediving and snorkelling products: From the moment you hold your breath and swim under the surface of the water even a few metres, it is freediving. On the other hand, if you stay on the surface, this is snorkelling.
