First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

The Mares X-Vision scuba mask features a nice 2-lense design and different frame colors are available.

The recognizable frame is what makes this scuba mask stand out from others and it’s hard to find much wrong with it.

The Mares X-Vision series is well-made, very affordable, looks cool, and offers a prescription lens option for any eyesight.

I have sold quite a few of them to students who were looking for prescription lenses and no one has ever complained or returned them.

The lenses are rather cheap and can easily be replaced by anyone.

I don’t usually like Mares for scuba gear, however, they make great scuba diving masks (and boots)

It’s a low-priced option to others on the market, which only suffers from a rather large mask volume.

Mares updates the series every other year so the current version might have some minor design tweaks, depending on when you are reading this buying guide.


If you don’t want to spend more than $100 on a mask, the Mares X-Vision series might just be the right choice for you.
