The Cressi Big Eyes Mask with Black Skirt has totally revolutionised the sector, thanks to the new and exclusive principles that it has introduced and which represent just as many milestones.
Great for Scuba Diving and Snorkelling. Fits adults with medium to large faces.
For the first time in the world the lenses are not parallel to the face but are raked and have an "inverted drop" shape, with a very particular formation, the structure of which is covered by international patent.
The anatomically shaped band is very narrow and is invisible when the mask is worn.
The all-round visibility, above all downwards, reaches unprecedented limits, exceeding those of a traditional mask by 30%, allowing dressing and equipment checks that were impossible before the arrival of Big Eyes.
The raking of the lenses and the consequent shape of the skirt drastically reduce the internal volume of the mask which is similar to that of free diving models.
The soft silicone skirt and the wide sealing ring against the face make the mask very comfortable to use.
Two tilting buckles guarantee quick and accurate adjustment of the strap.

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.
