DGX Gears Rio Mask
DGX Gears Rio Mask
- Popular double-lens mask
- High-quality silicone for comfort, fit, and durability
- High-impact plastic frame and adjustable strap
- Fits most medium to large faces
The DGX Rio two lens mask is a popular design with larger lenses and offers a slightly larger faceplate and lens area, with the tradeoff that the mask is not quite as low volume. The mask skirt is made of high quality black silicone for superior comfort, fit and durability. The mask also includes a black high-impact plastic frame and tempered glass lenses, with an easily adjustable strap. The DGX Rio double lens mask fits most medium to large faces, but may not a good choice if you have prominent facial hair. Also available with gauge reader and vision-correcting lenses. Includes the DGX padded mask bag.
A small DGX Gears logo is printed on the side buckles.
This mask is not a "pool toy"; it is intended for use by SCUBA divers who are trained to make a proper water entry while protecting the mask and regulator with their hand. Improper handling or use may cause lenses to shatter upon impact.
Don't use toothpaste as an abrasive cleaner on modern dive masks, especially those masks that have optical quality ultra-clear glass lenses, vision correction lenses or 'optical coatings' on the lenses. You will either damage the lenses, or needlessly waste toothpaste since most modern toothpaste formulations are not at all abrasive. The same goes for using a lighter to 'burn' the lens to prepare a new mask. Dive Gear Express will not warranty masks that have been treated with abrasives or burned with lighters.
Most new dive masks do have mold release agents in the flexible skirt that during storage will migrate to the surface of the lens and cause fogging. These deposits can be safely removed with an extra application of a powerful surfactant like liquid dish soap, baby shampoo, SeaQuick or SeaDrops defog.
