Thanks for your thoughts, but if you are going to make massive claims like this with zero knowledge of who I am you are going to be wrong.

If you felt like its getting hard to breath, like you were breathing CO2, then the mask is not built right and shouldn't be used. The are s lot of "fake" masks out there. Be careful, as you can pass out on the surface and drown. It could happen without warning!
It could be a number of reasons why you couldn't defog the mask. That shouldn't be a big deal though. Google how to defog a diving mask and you will fine all the help you need.
Nice video, thanks!
As for equalising, I've tried a whole bunch of options and have come to the conclusion that I cannot do this underwater without pinching my nose. All good tho, there are other products out there which allow snorkelling and equalising with the nose pinch method so I will stick to them :)
I've heard many methods for defogging. I guess everyone has their own technique!
Thanks for stopping by with your thoughts mate! :)

The way I'm able to equalize pressure without using my hands is to flex my ear canals sort of. It's a very similar feeling to as if you were yawning with your mouth closed. The tensing of your ear canals before expelling air during the yawn is the feeling you are looking for. If you can simulate that without actually yawning then it should equalize your ears for you.
Try screaming for help if you fail to "clear" a regular snorkel and gulp down water instead.
Guess what the number one killer of tourist to Hawaii was for over the past 10 years...yep snorkeling. Before full face masks we're even a thing. So yes, be cautious since CO2 build up is a thing and who knows maybe full face is worse, especially with a cheaper knockoff mask. But if you plan on snorkeling being prepared is far more important.
and don't rinse it out
and try these two both again, but don't rinse them out too
Of course, that mask had a plastic lens of probably dubious quality but I doubt the toothpaste would have had a negative impact on it.. the idea is the toothpaste removes the protective layer that's placed on at production time, and the soap is to stop fog building up on the lens..
but yeah, that mask looks like an overall bad idea! There are dive masks that have great visibility, and don't complicate things, take a look at a Hollis M1 mask.. I fully recommend it!

All of these full face masks have an ventilation system that revents fogging!
I was in talks with Decathlon to review their product but our discussions came to an end unfortunately. Tweet at them if you want this to happen!
All others claim the opposite ...
... I will soon test it myself (1 x NEOpine with Go Pro mount + 1 x Decatlon) ...
... if we get a summer here in Germany.
If not - then next year ...
Water kept leaking in my mask & it kept fogging up,,, I wanted to get a new 1 for Mexico in 2 weeks.
Thanks to this video tho, im not buying another 1. Im saving my money. Thankyou man.
If you haven't used one of these masks the air you expel is removed from both the snorkel and the part of the mask that goes over your chin area.
So, yeah, a nice idea but not practical or possible.
it increases the pressure, so the mask is like your nose extension thing kind of
because when you seal your nose and blow, you increase the pressure inside your (thing inside your forehead I don't know how to call) and as your nose is sealed the only possible ways of exiting your body is thorough the ears
theoretically it should work then
yet I don't have the mask so I can't test it, if I had it I would have tested it before writing the comment but ye, sorry
And btw, I'm one of those people who can wiggle their ears :)

Thank you and I subbed I like your videos
It's ok tho, I get around it by using a regular snorkel mask. The Seaview looks cool and innovative, but for me it's just not the product I am looking for.
Cheers for the tips tho!
Checked that playlist. Very interesting find!
PS: Not sure if you read my tip at the end about the shaving-cream, I know it was a rather long read.
Why this happens is actually very simple, hotter air can absorb more water than cold. When the air is in our lungs it gets hot due to our body temperature and it becomes more humid, when we exhale the now hotter air touches a cold visor (because it's in contact with the cooler water) it cools down releasing some water with it. You don't need to exhale for this to happen, even with just visor the heat provided by your skin combined by the water from the eyes and/or sweat can make the visor fog up, but the principle is the same.
Adding the 1-way valve would not only stop the visor from fogging due to the exhale, it would also reduce the amount of re-breathing you do since the volume of the mouth section is much smaller. The fact that the air intake comes from the visor also means that constant flow of new air coming in would also prevent the visor from fogging from the perspiration around the eyes.
In any case, you seem to be in contact with these companies, you could pass on this "idea", maybe they'll make a prototype and send it your way or who knows maybe you'll get something else from it.
I also got a little trick to avoid the fogging. I've never used it in visors, but I've done it in the bathroom mirror to avoid the condensation from hot showers and it worked: put some shaving cream on it, spread it around and clean it with a dry paper towel, it lasted a couple of weeks on a mirror I don't see why it wouldn't work on a visor.
i do this all the time with my scuba diving mask and it works greatly
But if you want to stay stagnant in your ways, all good! See ya later, the world will pass you by.
Umm why are you saying steam? Steam is not involved in the fogging process at all. Goggles fog up due to your skin temperature increasing the temperature of the air inside the goggles. The cold water on the outside causes condensation of the humidity in the air inside your mask. So no steam involved at all. Steam only forms when water gets close to 100 degrees Celcius at sea level.
the toothpaste is used for the first use to get all the chemicals from the factory off the screen so its not actually used for the fog.
with soap you wash your mask in the sea put a few drips of soap in in it wash 1 time make sure you have a very tin screen of soapy water on your glass and then put it back on it works wayyy better than spit
I'm so happy that you are a YouTuber who listens to his followers and also has time to do this.
And once again, great video, keep it up! Cheers!
As you feel the pressure beginning to build up in your ears do the following:
1 Use a nose clip with the full face mask and close your mouth.
2 Turn your head to the right until your chin touches your shoulder.
3 Swallow hard until your left ear pops.
4 Turn your head to the left until your chin touches your shoulder.
5 Swallow hard until your right ear pops.
If that doesn't work try crewing gum and swallowing saliva in the mask. That works on airplanes :)
Haha, you are giving the public some bad shit information there. Vaseline is just a petroleum based grease that will not only distort vision it is also not good for breathing its fumes. Just smear some mild shampoo all around the glass and wash it out well before fitting the mask. I'm a professional diver and we just use washing-up liquid in our helmets.
edit: okay maybe this is a factor.. i breathe through my nose when i use it... not my mouth. haha
if this is allowed, heres a link to mask im using
I'd say it's poorly designed rather than poorly made. The quality seems pretty good
