Gear Check: Aqua Sphere Seal 2.0

The Seal 2.0 is a lighter more streamlined version of Aqua Sphere’s Seal mask that has been doing the rounds for a few years now. It features a curved lens to deliver 1 80-degree panoramic vision but is on diet. Sealing is superb thanks to Aqua Sphere’s silicon skirt that alternates matt and shiny surfaces to cleverly increase the seal. This makes water penetration virtually impossible whilst producing a very comfortable soft-touch feel without feeling like your face is being sucked inside.

The silicon head strap, which features Aqua Sphere’s 1 00 per cent silicone micrometric buckle system is simple to adjust while the mask is one your face. The split strap sits comfortably around the head without irritation. Both the buckle system and nose bridge have been carefully streamlined to deliver enhanced hydrodynamics over the original Seal mask.

While not as hydrodynamic as smaller goggles, the Seal 2.0 is good option for those that feel they need the extra vision in the water to help with sighting and setting themselves at ease.
