Cressi Duke Dry Adult Full Face Snorkelling Mask & Bonete Fins Set Info
This superb new Snorkelling set from Cressi includes the Adult Cressi Duke Dry Full Face Snorkelling Mask combined with the Cressi Bonete Snorkelling fins for adults to create this top spec snorkelling package.
The Duke Dry Mask allows the snorkeller to breathe naturally and easily while face down in the water and remain dry. While the Cressi Duke is not the first full-face snorkelling mask, it is the first to use a new system of breathing which doesn't require the need for force to exhale air through a central tube and opening more than one valve. Designed with extremely high-quality materials and technology. You can explore the world underwater, breathing naturally through the nose and mouth with 0% effort. Its visual field is 30% larger than normal full face masks. The new air baffle completely eliminates fogging. It features special safety valves for purging water. The snorkel features a special dry system that keeps water out.
Cressi claim to have 'invented' the first full face mask, the Medusa, back in 1946 although in its infancy it didn't seperate the breathing chamber from the vision chamber - at that time Cressi owned a patent for the Medusa Mask.
These three features put the Cressi Duke in a class of its own:
- The advantage of lateral tube position.
- An excellent Anti-fogging effect.
- A minimal build-up of residual CO2.
By repositioning the breathing tube laterally, Cressi believe this is the shortest possible route for air flow with minimal effort, this new system is currently under patent.
The left-side breathing tube is divided into two before entering the two seperate chambers. One is connected to the breathing chamber and the other is connected to the vision chamber. This advantage is enhanced by the fact that neither the breathing chamber nor the tube has any valves to impede the user’s breath. The extraction chamber also has an enlarged volume in order to allow for optimal CO2 extraction. As a result the air flow system in the Cressi Duke Snorkelling Mask produces far less CO2 build-up than a safety gas mask.
The second independent tube. It’s connected to the vision chamber, and extracts moisture and warm air that builds up in this chamber, completely separate from the breathing chamber.
The full face snorkelling mask also has a deflector, which is also under patent, to help maximise the extraction of warm air produced by the face during use, it is designed to work virtually like a chimney, forcing air circulation away from the lens to help reduce potential condensation/warmth build-up.
The Cressi Duke has large outlet valves at its base, to drain the mask quickly & easily should the mask fill with water. One large outlet valve below the mouth which has nothing to do with the breathing system.
The Cressi Bonete fins are short, open-heel fins with adjustable straps. The redesigned buckle system increases the sturdiness and ensures a long lifespan. The fin strap features a large thumb loop for easy donning and doffing. They can also be hung on a hook for drying. The foot pocket is made of a rubber material for comfort and accommodates a wide range of foot sizes. This open-foot pocket fin comes with an adjustable strap, which allows it to be shared between different people in a similar foot size-range. The composite design of the blade provides comfortable finning and helps reduce leg cramping. A practical net bag is included with the fins, ideal for rinsing them after use and removing any sand. The fins are ideal for travelers due to their compact dimensions and light weight.
