Fourth Element Unveils New, Customizable SCOUT Dive Mask


The folks at Fourth Element this week introduced their new, customizable SCOUT dive mask.

The mask’s new lens system is designed to deliver an optimized experience for different conditions when diving — whether for underwater photographers looking to maximize the light transmission or wreck divers needing to enhance their perception of dimly lit surroundings, according to Fourth Element.

The SCOUT mask’s features include:

* Single lens frameless mask
* Angled profile to maximize field of view
* Soft silicon skirt for optimized comfort fit
* Interchangeable straps

The SCOUT mask’s frameless soft silicon skirt seals comfortably against the skin and the angled lens gives the wearer an excellent field of vision.

The SCOUT mask has four different lenses with unique attributes, depending on whether you dive in tropical or temperate waters, dive mostly for photography or need more contrast to see better.

To build your own mask, you’ll need to head to the SCOUT page on the Fourth Element website and use the lens guide to choose the right lens to suit your dives. You’ll then use the online mask builder to preview and select the skirt and strap that creates the style you want.

Retailing for US$110/£79.95/€95.95, you can find more info about the SCOUT mask here.
