Should have a quick release built in. Should also have a one way valve to prevent re-breathing. That mask is a piece of crap death trap.

I have one. I took a breath then blocked off inhale tube hole with finger then exhaled and air does go out through a hole in front i could feel it with my hand. I think people need to take deep longer breaths. there is a area around mouth and nose that holds a little air that you breath in and breath out so if you breathe quickly in and out you’re almost hypeavinilating because you’re not taking strong breaths to bring in enough fresh oxygen from the outside then when you exhale, exhale hard to push the bad air out.

panic is aslo an issue, water is not human world anyway

Ray Vinagro says:

Lol than take your head out of the water if you feel like you can’t breathe stupid ppl dying for no reason

marL ranle says:

better stay on old school snorkel

Wolf says:

you have fat people taking in small gaps of air and co2 its not rocket science

John Donnarumma says:

4 deaths with full face masks means that 6 deaths are with snorkel and regular masks? Hmm! What’s going on here? U can report this either way! I would report 60% of deaths are related to old fashioned snorkel equipment and that with newer equipment u need to follow instructions for use. Most of the better masks are made by companies with decades of experience in making snorkel and dive experience. This is ur life, don’t buy cheap knock off and if u feel uncomfortable get out of the water. Deaths may be related 2 novice snorkelers trying to dive in these masks which they are NOT designed 2 do! My prayers go out 2 the 10 who lost their lives.

poofendorf says:

If you’re too stupid to take off a mask, you shouldn’t be in the water or outside at all.

The Wedge says:

The Russians hacked the snorkel masks

yoyoyoshio267 says:

That’s your problem, idiots putting their masks on wrong, I might just be pessimistic because I collect gas masks and I know how to properly wear a full face mask but when people aren’t even putting the mask on properly they are going to have problems, you are supposed to put your chin in then pull the straps over your head and you pull the mask up to take it off, and you also must seal check

Uncle Ryan says:

Trump’s fault

Larry David says:

The longer the mask air tube is, the more CO2 you will rebreathe. In this case, the space between the mask and face is added to the tube volume. All that comes from your lungs but is not expelled and replaced with fresh air.

Sea Bass says:

Put a little hole in a bag and then put the bag over your kids head. You wouldn’t?? Not enough CO2 can get out, you say?? *A full-faced mask is the same thing*
