ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

this seems to be the only forum that gets attention so ill ask here lol...my omer bandit feels like a kids halloween mask..pushed on my nose pretty hard and wont stay sealed.

i measured my face like this, held a ruler across my face looking into a mirror. from pupil to pupil was 2 5/8" and 4 3/4" to the outsides of my eyesockets (see pic to get an idea of how i measured)






here is an actual pic of me

Agree. I have a huge head. Deep sea split glass masks are what I use now.

X2, even my 9 YO has a big mellon his hood and mask size are nearly the same as mine...

Also the hair, although your due looks Aquadynamic the blade looks to be a little to the left, most likely causing you to swim in circles alot?????

Re: ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

Best advice I can give you is to try on several in stores and see which one you can get to seal there. I use an Omer Aries, I think, and it fits much different than the riffe mantis I have.

Re: ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

I have a IST M99 from nautilus re-branded version of the Spora Sub Micro Mask and it works very well as i have a larger nose. It has a black skirt and was the only one that i could wear all day and still was a very low volume mask. While i have tried on the omer alien the one i felt most comfortable in was the micro mask.

x2 I have the MicroMask and it is the only low volume mask I have found that fits comfortably and doesn't leak.

I would say I have a fairly big face/head as well.

Re: ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

Re: ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

Sorry, nothing to add. I just wanted to see who were the guys with "Big Heads". However after reviewing the thread and seeing the template, it could be me !!

Be safe

Re: ATTN: guys with big heads/faces

I occasionally check this forum bc California is cool.

But, I have a question....

Don't all California spearos have BIG HEADS?
