This snorkel is well constructed with a comfortable silicon mouthpiece and flexible tube at the bottom (mouth) part of the snorkel. This made it easy to get adjusted properly, and caused no jaw fatigue during the multiple 2+ hour trips. The "dry snorkel" feature worked perfectly, never leaving me with a mouthful of salt water and was easy to clear upon resurfacing. If there was any concern with this snorkel, it would be in the clip. The clip is two parts, which slide together and lock, via a centrally located push button. Let me stress, that it has NOT failed and still works just like it is supposed to, but the way it is constructed concerns me and I expect it to fail with excessive use. I could be completely wrong... it's just made in such a way that it makes me think that once the individual pieces get worn a little, it won't hold quite like it should.
There were a couple reasons I went with this mask. For one, it has a one piece tempered glass lens. I found this to be very clear with no distortion present and offer a wide field of view. I have an average sized face, and they fit well, though I suspect that their incredibly pliable construction would let them fit many face sizes well. The skirt is solid silicone which was another plus for me. The last set I had would not seal... at all. This mask gave me very little trouble, and what little trouble I did have I attribute to my forgetting to shave that morning rather than the mask. The strap is comfortable and secure. It's also made of silicone so the entire mask feels like one piece and offers terrific flexibility. The important thing to remember about masks is that everybody's face is different. If you want a professional mask, go to a dive shop... not Amazon. If you want an inexpensive mask that will last a really long time with basic care, and will likely do exactly what you want it to, this mask will.
The fins were one of the main reasons I went with this set, and one of the main reasons I almost didn't. On the plus side, they were full-footed, which was what I was looking for. They fit great, causing me no fatigue or rubbing and offer just enough propulsion to snorkel in moderate currents. They are a little long, but... let's face it... they're not being marketed as travel fins. They are supposed to be long. That's where they get their propulsion from. The boot is made from silicone, and could be used with or without dive socks; I used them without. The biggest downfall to these fins is their difficulty in sizing. Before I bought them, I read every review and informational summary I could find and I'm glad I did because sizing these is a little tricky without being able to try them on. What I ended up doing, was measuring my foot and cross-referencing that to the Euro size. In my case, that put me at a 44. That's the size I ordered and the fit was perfect. If I had ordered my normal US size, I would have had to have worn socks with them.
There isn't much to say about the bag... It's a mesh bag. LOL. It seems well made, and makes for a convenient way to carry the entire set around. One bonus, though, is that my set came with a separate bag for the snorkel and mask so they can be kept separate from the fins. This way, the mask won't get scratched by the fins or anything else that may make it's way through the mesh, and if you want to grab just your snorkel and mask, you can do that without carrying them individually or lugging the big mesh bag around.
BEST MASK - Mask is unbeatable.. Comfortable comfortable comfortable!! Best no leaking Mask.. best fitting mask for my face ever.. best silicone.. best glass.. best easy to use snorkel.. (SNORKEL soft silicone tech keeps water out/clears easy)
BEST FINS - Best all around snorkeling fins ever.. great reef fins on the water and down deep.. yes, i was skeptical after I read the harsh reviews.. However, i am so glad I bought these fins.. So, if you're mildly athletic, don't listen to all the crap. They worked great!
****[ FINS - Fit in Carry On Luggage. ]**** (see photo)
WHAT MATTERS - FIN SIZE - 7/8 - (Fins measure - 22 inches long x 10+ inches Fin Width)
1. Similar length to other combo fins, but but sturdy design and better made in Italy
2. Footbox is soft silicone with nice strong but flexible silicone rails that run along the outside length of fin (see photos)
3. My SHOE SIZE: 8 - 8.5 (for comparison - Fin size 7/8)
4. My FOOT MEASUREMENT: See photo SAE(4 inches wide x 10.25" long) METRIC( 10.2cm x 26.1cm)
5. Perfect fit - Fin size was American size 7/8 - EU size 41/42
FINS - BETTER THAN EXPECTED.. softer fin than expected for the surface, yet stiffer and more powerful than expected for the depths..
However FINS - Not the best for lap swimming.. NOR for a sedentary 70 year old.. you'd be better off w small non-aggressive fins
COLOR - YELLOW - Chose yellow this time for better visibility out on the water.
MASK Glass: Don't forget to clean factory residues real good [toothpaste] & use "Spit" or baby shampoo for anti-fog)
THE MESH BAG - Nothing to get excited about - (No shoulder strap on Cressi mesh bag, so i still use my US Divers fin bag- see photo)
PRICE - Glad i bought the Cressi Combo, for only a few bucks more, not only did i get the great Cressi mask, but also the best all around fins on the market.

The mask I have some issies with but didn't want to give a lower rating as I really enjoyed the fins. Firstly I had a miserable time getting the mask to not fog up. The only thing that finally worked was the lighter treatment. There was a lot of silicone residue on the mask which happens in production.
Secondly, this mask gives me a headache. Don't know if it's the shape or what the issue is, but I get a bad headache behind my right eye when wearing these for more than 15-20 mins. Which is too bad because it is a good frameless mask. I use a Cressi wide view panoramic as my main mask. Everyones face is different so you will just see how it works for you.

The flippers made long lazy swimming underwater so enjoyable as you cover white a distance with each stroke and the goggles offered perfect visibility. The breathing tube can be a bit scary at times when you go too deep and you get a mouthful of salty sea water. The trick is not to panic and take it out of your mouth while rising to the surface and reinsert after surfacing. All in all very good for beginners and the set is very much recommended. *****
The flippers are good quality easy to get on and off in or out of the water Comfortable when on and easy to swim with.
I used them for the first time on a day trip smoked with sharks, turtles and Nemo and they never let me down once...
