Oceanic has blended some great snorkeling gear ingredients for a perfect snorkeling dish. This set is very hard to beat when it comes to quality at an affordable price and includes the Oceanic Ion S Mask, Ultra Dry S Snorkel, VFlex Fins and Mesh Carrying Bag. This is our staffs favorite snorkeling package based on price, comfort, fit and performance. Hands down.
Your window to the underwater world is the Ion S Mask. The mask is a low volume two window mask and the lenses are made using tempered glass for safety which are set in a light weight frame. The mask skirt features a double seal to allow fit for a wider variety of facial sizes. Both the skirt and the seal are made using high quality silicone which is soft and comfortable on the face. The silicone is also hypoallergenic and used in the adjustable mask strap which is replaceable. The buckles holding it to the frame are easy to manage and have a swivel feature to allow for a more precise strap placement.
The Ultra Dry S is a dry snorkel which is perfect for snorkelers from novice to advanced. The dry top feature of the snorkel actually closes the breathing tube when the top of the snorkel drops below the surface of the water, this keeps water from entering the tube itself. The valve reopens when the top of the snorkel goes above the waterline. The two piece snorkel keeper makes it very easy to attach and detach the snorkel to and from the mask. The flex tube portion near the bottom of the snorkel is designed so that it has a curve to it. This makes for more consistent placement of the snorkel mouthpiece in relationship to the mouth. The mouthpiece itself uses high quality one hundred percent hypoallergenic silicone which is extremely comfortable. For those times when the mouthpiece is out of your mouth and it drops below the surface of the water, there is a one way purge valve at the very bottom of the snorkel that allows you to easily clear the water out of that area.
The fins that come with this snorkel set are the VFlex Fins. The fins require no additional foot gear because the foot pocket is so comfortable due to the softer material used in the construction. They are larger in lengthwise, compared to the travel sized fins but they are shorter than the length of traditional snorkel fins measuring only 20.5 inches for the small/medium size and only 22 inches in length for the large/xlarge. The fin straps feature has finger loops which make tightening the straps uncomplicated. The quick release buckle system on the fins allow for quick and easy strap replacement and feature a swivel for a more personalized strap placement. The composite materials used in the fin blade make the fin lighter in weight than traditional snorkeling fins as well. In our opinion, the shape of the fin blade shows careful thought and intuitive engineering. The scoop in the center of the blade helps to channel the water from each kick toward the fin tip in a controlled manner and helps to stabilize the fin kick so they are consistent on both the up and down kicks.
To complete this package, the simple nylon mesh carry bag is the perfect size for your new snorkel gear. The mesh serves three purposes... the first being an easy way to carry your gear and keep it together during travel and storage. The second is to allow for drainage of water from wet equipment and the third purpose is to allow air to circulate through the bag for quicker drying. The bag features a drawstring style closure with a barrel lock closure.

We went to Cozumel and I wanted a more expensive snorkel gear, something that would last quite a few years. We found it! The Oceanic Snorkel Gear is fannnntastic! We both love it.
