A mask is one of the most essential pieces to diving gear. A great quality mask is what you should be looking for, which can give you the best vision and visual perspective possible. Since obviously, you don’t want to have missed anything during your dives. So….there are some decisions that need to be taken.
As to what comes first?

Technical divers tend to go for the all black look with a black silicone skirt whereas recreational divers like bright colours with a clear silicone skirt and matching snorkels. Either way, its an individual’s personal preference.
