Everyone who did a bit bit of snorkeling knows how unnatural feels to breath through the snorkel. And not only that, the goggles have limited field of view and they get foggy when you need it the least.

The EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask promises to overcome these inconveniences. The mask features a full-face design, allows breathing through nose and mouth, offers an unobstructed 180-degrees field of view and, to prevent fogging, sports a b system (the air comes in through a different channel then it goes out). The top of the snorkel is highly visible (vibrant red) to help you avoid collisions in the water and it features a mechanism that closes the air vent when submerged in water. The EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask will be available in the spring of 2014 for ~$55.
