The Deep 6 Signature single lens mask came to me as a tester which eventually became my primary SCUBA diving mask for many reasons.
First of all, SCUBA masks are very personal and personally I prefer to use single lens mask. The Deep 6 Signature mask is of single lens type and suits me well. It’s tempered glass comes pre-coated with anti-fogging treatment that reduces fogging which diving. However, it doesn’t mean it’ll never fog, just reduced in case you’ve forgotten to clean your mask before getting in to the water. Best to still perform your normal defogging procedure* before diving.
Its design is well suited for smaller faces, Asian face design as they say where the nose pocket is not too high or pointy making it easier to equalize. It’s also low volume that allows faster mask clearing although some freediving friends may have better alternatives for lower volume masks. Deep 6 is better known in the technical diving arena so freediving’s design probably didn’t come in mind.
The mask feels very comfortable during wearing likely due to the soft silicone seal that allows the mask to sit nicely, sealing off the contours on the face that may lead to water leaking in. Especially at times during diving when I need look up or to the sides to spot for boats or divers. However again, this fits well for me personally so I highly recommend anyone to try it on first before making a purchase.
Deep 6 Signature Mask Has A Robust Frame That Prevent Lens From Dropping…. Rare… But I Experienced This With My Other Mask Before
Tightening and loosening the strap is easy and effortless thanks to the smooth buckle ratchets at the side, attached to a sturdy robust frame that feels solid and not plasticky. My previous two experiences with single lens masks were either the frame broke or decided to drop the lens altogether. Yes, the lens came off hilariously while of diving. Luckily my buddy had a backup mask and a good thing the Open Water certification recommends to have a spare mask while diving. So far, the Deep 6 Signature mask is still holding on well, hopefully to many more underwater adventures to come.
To sum in up, I’m enjoying my every dive with this Deep 6 Signature mask. Robust, comfortable and a great field of view. The anti-fog coating works well but defogging procedures are still recommended for best performance. It comes in two colors; black and white both etched with the signature hammerhead shark logo at the top skirting.

Happy diving and dive safe!!!
