    Hello everybody!

    After reading some reviews on the internet about the Atomic Aquatics Frameless, i decided to buy one.

    Everything is perfect (fit, horizontal and vertical angle) except for one little thing: a small amount of water gets into the nose compartment :confused: (the amount doesn't increase in time) and ,if purged, it'll come back sooner or later. It's not so annoying once you get used to it (dived three times this weekend), but because of the cold water next to the nostrils, my nose gets snotty and it's harder to blow air through it :coffee:

    Did anyone experience anything similar?

    Thanks!

    Hi Consta,

    Welcome to the Board! I bought the Frameless mask and constantly got a bit of water in it. Then Atomic came out with the Medium Fit version. Bought that- problem solved! Sold the Regular fit version.

    Just my 2psi.

    If you have a narrow face as i do, you probably need the medium fit mask. mine does not leak at all. Also i had to shave my mustache back at the nose.

    Thank you for the hint.

    Unfortunatelly, none of the LDS in my country (Romania) sells Atomic Aquatics products :mooner: (i bought this mask with the help of a friend who was on a trip to the USA).

    Thanks,
