The Cressi Z1 is a frameless mask that boasts a low internal volume while offering a wide field of view in all directions. The specific design uses the assembly of the silicone skirt directly over the single glass. This system guarantees great sturdiness and a perfect watertight seal.
The lower weight of the mask makes it ideal for travel. The flexible fit and reduced drag are appreciated for freediving and spearfishing, snorkelling and diving. The micro metrically adjustable buckles are comfortable and effective.

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.
