ScubaMax’s entry into the category of teardrop-shape lens — which increased downward vision — is a comfortable, low-volume mask. The skirt-mounted buckles feature a push-button control that makes for easy adjustment but do not swivel. Testers found the Aria both easy to clear and equalize. FOV for both vertical and horizontal views were average, and the Aria should find favor with the free-diving and spearfishing crowds because of its low-volume profile and camouflage color. Both the camo and black versions are offered at a great price.
