In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.
The Atomic Aquatics V2 snorkel (often just called the Atomic V2) is a typical Atomic Aquatics scuba gear product. Great materials, looks amazing…and quite pricey.
As usual, you get what you pay for and this semi-dry snorkel is a true delight to use. Easy to purge and one of the lightest snorkels I’ve ever used.
It’s mainly aimed at scuba divers and if you want a small yet super effective snorkel, this is a great option.
Supposedly people get jaw fatigue from it…at least that’s what I read online. I can absolutely not confirm this and this snorkel is so lightweight…I find it hard to believe.
The Atomic Aquatics V2 is also one of the easiest to purge snorkels I’ve ever used on a dive which is another big plus.
If I have to deduct points, it’s for the fact that the price is not cheap…and that the snorkel is not foldable.
I understand why they designed it the way they did…but at this price point, I do expect it to be.
Sigh…Atomic does it again…They released a piece of scuba gear I absolutely wanted to buy…but priced it…just right….which is high. 🙈
This semi-dry snorkel is a thing of beauty and yes…I did buy one. It’s totally worth it just for the design.
