    I bought a DGX last year and have no complaints so far. It is very comfortable and fits like a glove.

    I recently went back to my magenta SV mask Because I missed the magical pink fairy land it creates… In California and I felt like it just color corrected, but in the clear waters of Florida it really makes things look pink, and sometimes I like that!

    Dive Right Warning! I burnt mine....?

    Don't use toothpaste on modern dive masks, especially those masks that have lenses with optical coatings. You will either damage the optical coating 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 baby shampoo, SeaQuick or SeaDrops defog.
