The integrated snorkel device prevents water seeping in even when immersed which means more time exploring underwater!

Vaincre vs Thenice

While the Vaincre is quite a good scuba diving gear with its anti-fog and 180 degree view, when compared to the Thenice snorkel you may come across some distinct and common features.

The Thenice mask covers the face of the diver and incorporates anti-fog tech, is leak-proof and comes in two sizes (L and XL). Finding the right size can be quite hectic. Unlike the Vaincre, the feel of the Thenice is cheap and the seal is not as soft and sealproof as advertised.

If your chosen size is not the perfect fit, then I can guarantee that you will experience some leaking. The Vaincre uses a slightly different design which keeps water out even during diving.

So in the Thenice vs. Vaincre comparison, I would certainly go with the better quality mask, Vaincre. However, should you be strapped for cash, Thenice does a better job than other traditional snorkel masks.

Recent Review

” Because of the amount of oxygen held in the mask while in the water, it’s difficult to swim more than a few feet underwater. Diving 15 or 20 feet down isn’t possible. This is, without question, the BEST snorkelling device for floating on the surface, face down. Amazing view because of the broad, unobstructed, facepiece and the lack of breath condensation. ”

Verdict – The best full face snorkeling mask in 2019

This snorkel by Vaincre is best suited for divers who are beginners when it comes to subsurface sea diving, it is not suitable for deep diving.

I love the Vaincre snorkel! It’s so great with its underwater experience and it has a beautiful design. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an awesome time snorkeling because you are going to enjoy every single moment exploring if you have one.
