The Tusa M-1001 Freedom HD Mask is the latest design to come from Freedom Technology. It is a single lens mask with an incredibly wide field of vision. This mask boasts a 180° Rotational Buckle System, which allows it to fit a variety of face sizes while maintaining a low profile. Yes, it even fits 'difficult' faces!
Great for Diving and Snorkelling. Fits medium to large adult faces.
The best feature of the Tusa Freedom HD Mask is the round edge skirt, which produces a soft and supple fit that seals efficiently without creasing your face. It also features an incredibly wide angle of view thanks to its enormous frame, but keeps the glass close to your eyes and thus has a relatively small internal volume.
The straps pivot and rotate in numerous directions which means this mask fits a wide range of face widths. While we think it best fits medium to wide adult faces, it can also fit some smaller faces thanks to the high quality of the silicone skirt.

Tusa Freedom HD Mask Technology
Freedom technology is a set of revolutionary features offering superior fit, comfort and increased performance in TUSA masks. Freedom model masks feature a dimpled skirt surface with varied silicone thicknesses and stability ridges in addition to a proprietary low-friction skirt surface on the fitting line.
180 Buckle System
The buckle rotates a full 180 degrees to accommodate varying head sizes for optimum fit. The thin frame and rotation of the buckle allows the mask to be folded into a compact size.
TUSA's patented 3-D strap is a true three-dimensional design that snugly fits against the head's natural curvature. The 3-D strap offers unprecedented comfort and fit unlike standard flat mask straps.
Panoramic View masks feature a variety of designs offering an incredibly wide field-of-view. Several designs incorporate minimum frame volumes, domed side-windows, reduced frame structures as well as three and four window styles for maximum vision.
Round Edge Skirt
TUSA's Round Edge Skirt features a proprietary round edge cross-sectionally shaped skirt. This rounded edge results in a soft fit that suppresses pressure and reduces creasing left on the face. The "planar fit, instead of linear fit" silicone skirt maintains great fit and unprecedented comfort.
Skirt Mounted Quick-Adjust Buckle System
The Quick-Adjust Buckle System incorporates a newly-designed low-profile buckle into the crystal silicone skirt of the mask. The result is a compact, lightweight, technologically advanced mask design that can be easily and quickly adjusted for a perfect fit.

Why Black or Opaque Skirt Diving and Snorkelling Masks Are Better
Clear silicone skirts on diving and snorkelling masks are popular because they minimise the claustrophobic feeling some people get when they wear a mask. Nevertheless, clear skirts actually interfere with vision. Extraneous light entering through the clear skirt makes it more difficult for the eye to focus and causes reflections that obscure vision. Demonstrate this by looking out a window from a lighted room at twilight. You will see better by cupping your hands around your eyes as you press your face to the window. For these reasons, knowledgeable scuba divers, spearos, freedivers, underwater photographers, and snorkellers seeking the best possible vision prefer masks with black or opaque silicone skirts.
What We Think...
- A BIG viewing window for those who like to take it in
