FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
With so many positive reviews, what else is the to say about this wonderful bit of kit? Having just returned from holiday in Rhodes and tried the Tribord for the first time in the lovely warm sea, I can confirm that it worked perfectly. No leakage, no fogging; no problem!
Having almost a phobia about having my face in the water, I had never been able to use a traditional snorkel, but with the Tribord Easybreath I was able to surface snorkel comfortably straight away. Put on the mask, breath in and then head down into the water. Wonderful visibility, and I felt comfortable from the very first moment. Staying under for quite some time was no problem at all.
While there is a slightly strange sensation hearing yourself breathing, you soon get used to this and it was so easy to breath through either nose or mouth (or as I found most comfortable, inhale through my nose then exhale through my mouth.)
Some reviewers have noted that with effectively a large air bubble on your face this made diving down harder; as a weak swimmer I found that the extra buoyancy was actually a bonus and added to my confidence in the water.
At nearly 0.70 kg the weight needs to be taken into consideration with limited luggage allowances but if this is the price for a robust and very effective device, then it is a price worth paying.
Maybe we were just very unlucky, but when we got these home, the side of one was separated (there's a joint half way up) and water was flooding in, and the other one simply filled up with water from the bottom as soon as the face was immersed.
Thanks for your message, sorry to hear about your experience with the Easybreath. I am not sure what happened to the first one, but I can only assume it was faulty, apologies for this. With the second perhaps it was the fit? For the Easybreath to work properly it is essential that that you have the correct size due to the nature of the seal around the face. Also factors such as having a beard can also affect the performance of the seal.
Please could you return both masks for an exchange or full refund at your earliest convenience?
Apologies for the issues caused.

I have a dodgy jaw, having had it reset once after it dislocated. Gripping a normal snorkel between my teeth makes it ache horribly but this new mask has completely resolved the problem. It is so comfortable, no leaks at all and gives such a feeling of freedom. What a great buy! We are off on holiday in a few weeks and my husband bought it for me as a birthday present. I have tried it out in a swimming pool and now can't wait to get amongst the turtles in the Indian Ocean.

If your mask fogs up it is probably because the small almost see-through valve has fallen out when you washed it!!..I only noticed when a friend of mine pointed out that I only had one!..another design fault that needs to be addressed. What shame as the basic idea of the full face mask is brilliant but it can only work if all the components are of good quality.
My 2 emails to the customer service dept still remain without a response...thats not really good enough!! If you are considering buying one I sugggest that you read the reviews & possibly purchase from another providered that might have solved this problem & has a fold down style breathing tube!!Brand's answer :
