GULL VADER fanette MASK NEW (GM-1262/1263/1296B/1297B)
Designed with feminine sensibility based on the original VADER mask. VADER fanette is the perfect option for both skin and scuba divers looking for a chic, yet high-performance mask.VADER fanette features a single, UV420 lens form with a smaller, beautifully contoured body. Its specially tailored silicone skirt extends beyond the cheekbones for a more effective seal.
Curled Skirt Lip with Integrated Strap
The skirt’s all-in-one design ensures firm but gentle contact with the face. Pulling on the strap keeps a tight yet gentle seal leaving fewer impressions on your skin.
Normally pressure causes an uncomfortable squeeze, especially for masks with downwards inclination angles for improved downward field of view. The soft damper skirt acts as cushions to relieve this stress on the face.
The drain skirt design improves water expulsion when clearing the mask and also minimizes water pooling.
Low volume further improves the excellent arc of vision you get with the single-lens design. Enjoy a wide view that's great for any form of diving.
DX Spec. Mask Buckle
The release buckle and fine pinch strap adjustability make it easy to find the most comfortable fit even when wearing thicker gloves. Can be adjusted with only using one hand.
The mask’s silicone body is optimized to avoid compromising the seal from facial muscle movement, maintaining a secured fit and great feel.
UV420 CUT Lens
The UV420 CUT lens is able to block harmful HEV (high-energy visible light in the 400 to 420 nm spectrum) which causes oxidative stress and deterioration of *lutein in your eye. Lutein is said to act as natural sunglasses. It is present as a pigment in the retina, a crucial part of the eye that receives light and allows you to see. The UV420 lens prevents cumulative macular degeneration by blocking harmful light and has an anti-oxidant effect. Lutein is destroyed when it absorbs harmful light. Its presence in the retina is limited and, because the body cannot make lutein, it can only be replaced by eating lutein-rich food.
Lighting can alter the appearance of a tunnel. Orange light make objects more visible by increasing the contrast of its shadowed edges. White light increases overall visibility by generally illuminating everything brighter. As in the orange-lit tunnel, our previous UV400 Amber lens increases contrast, while the UV420 CUT lens provides a brighter visual such as with white LED light.
Eye Behind an Ordinary Lens
Light tends to cause oxidative stress and lutein (pigment) deterioration.
Eye Behind a UV420 CUT Lens
Protection of lutein reduces oxidative stress:less pigment deterioration.
Two Types of High-Performance Lenses
UV420 CUT Aqua LensUV420 CUT eye protection blocks out harmful UV and near infrared rays. Cutting out near infrared rays helps preserve the composition of lutein which is crucial for healthy vision. Overall visibility is effectively enhanced by the bluish tint offering a brighter field of vision.
Super Clear LensEnables greater clarity than standard glass. Objects are seen more clearly. By rigorously removing impurities from the glass, light transmittance is maximized. Skirt reflections on the lens are also minimized with a clear silicone mask.

New lip form (new-form silicone)
Water is most likely to flood the nose and mouth area when gaps open in the seal between mask and skin. This may happen, for example, if the mask rides up on the face, if leaking occurs at the cheeks by use of a mouthpiece, or at the corners of the mouth when grinning underwater. Here, the silicone form is optimized to avoid compromising the seal from facial muscle movement, maintaining a secured fit and great feel.
Volume: 125cc* Weight: 223g Even while inheriting the form of the VADER, the low-volume design makes it easier to exhale into the mask for equalization and mask clearing. * Measured using Gull standard procedures
Smaller Size When wearing the VADER, some women said the mask felt a little too big. Designed to fit a female face, to be neither too big nor too small when worn by a woman, the new form reflects this sensitivity.
