  1. This is the strap to get!

    By SealScott

    on 11 May, 2019

    I own 4 of these straps and have been using them for several years, both on my primary and backup masks.

    They are a lot easier to thread through the mask than the silicone straps and much more durable and comfortable.

    TIP 1: Once you get the sizing set, trim the excess length from the ends of the velcro straps so that each strap has about 2"–2.5" (5-6 cm) of velcro gripping the back of the neoprene. This is important, as it will allow the neoprene to stretch, making for a more comfortable fit.

    TIP 2: When you're not wearing the mask, you can flip this strap over the front of the mask to help protect the lenses. Also if you dive with open-heel fins, a great place to store your mask is inside the foot pocket.

  2. Comfort fit of Plain Black Slap Strap

    By Nicole Fredrick S.

    on 22 October, 2018

    This mask strap is definitely a must for divers and would suit any mask there is. Very simple and basic design, and so easy to install, and adjusted in accordance to how comfortable you would want the mask on your face. The neoprene strap slides down the back of your head easily and doesn’t entange with hair.

  4. Great quality strap

    By Meni H.

    on 3 February, 2018

    Great quality strap.
    Been diving with it for about a year and I find it very comfortable.
    At first it seemed too stiff but it works great and the qulity is noticeable.
    The velcro strap closes to the inside and makes it a little tricky to refit doring use but it's duable.

Leaking Mask? Loosen The Strap!

If your mask is leaking, try loosening the strap, not tightening it. All mask straps, regardless of the type, are there just to keep the mask from falling off your face, not to make the seal. The thin feather edge of the silicone mask skirt is what makes the watertight seal with the face. If the strap is too tight, the skirt and that feather seal will become warped and misshapen which can cause the mask to leak. If the mask is leaking slightly, tightening the strap even more will usually make the leak worse. With a properly set strap, some types of water entries might dislodge the strap, so make a habit of reaching back behind your head with one hand to steady the strap (not the mask) during entry. Any diver who exits and has a 'mask ring' indentation in their face probably has too tight a mask strap.

A nice feature of the Slap Strap is the Velco tabs make it easy to change the strap length and you can even do it during the dive by feel. If your mask is leaking, you can try loosening the strap during the dive to see if it solves the problem. Of course you can also tighten it during the dive. Sometimes on deep dives the water is very cold on the bottom and requires a hood, yet the water is very warm near the surface which can cause uncomfortable overheating on the shallow deco stops. Some technical divers like to wear a hood during the cold part of the dive, then during their warmer long deco stops they pull the hood off and tighten the mask strap to compensate.
