Alternate Air Source With Full Face Mask

Alternate Air Source With Full Face Mask

How do you use your Full Face Mask and an Alternate Air Source? We get asked this all the time. Here is a video showing you how I use it for a particular type of diving that I do. Remember there is no one right or wrong way to do it, just make sure you practice with the set up you have and become proficient with it.

Excellent video. I’ve been checking for vids about these masks and came across this video after seeing several, but this one is simple and informative. 10/10

Great video! Thank you 🙂 But your link for the online shop is not working (and neither on your website LakeHickory)… I liked this idea of a switch on the regulatorhose. To be tried on sidemount or separate tanks (cave diving…). Doesn’t it exist with a “handle” rather than a clip, just to be more secure?And the FFM… wonderful but still a bit expensive when work does not cover the fees :p I heard talking about a new Ocean Reef’s for recreational divers… Maybe interesting it may be 🙂

Thank you for the video. Just ordered my FFM and this helped for a alternative air source question i had

Would be great to see a vid with the gas switch block mounted. Thanks for this vid, I had always wondered what stopped ffm divers draining their alternate air source with out a switching mechanism.

Wow great vid!
Wish I was rich enough to buy one of them tho:(

Mike Brady says:

Hey! Great videos. Curious if you’ve ever used the OTS guardian? Considering an entry level FFM but, surprisingly , can’t find many comparisons from the Ocean Reef and OTS.

Charles Bruce says:

why don’t you use a switching block?  This mask looks very bulky..
