GULL VADER MASK 2021 (GM-1269)

GULL

Regular price $190.00

With a body designed entirely by curves, Vader is an alluring top of the line, UV420 grade single-lens mask. VADER has remained a favorite amongst skin and scuba divers.Its maticulously engineered curled lip, soft damper skirt is designed to relieve pressure for unmatched comfort.

Inclination 10 degrees

The lens shape and inclination angle work together to extend the mask’s downward field of view toward the chest level. This helps with essential diving maneuvers that are carried out at the chest level.

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.

Soft Damper

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.

Drain Skirt

The drain skirt design improves water expulsion when clearing the mask and also minimizes water pooling.

Low Volume

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.

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.

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.

No Center Frame

The benefit of a lens undivided by a center frame is the overlapping of the arcs of vision of the right and left eyes. You get a bright, broad field of view and less feeling of restriction. Made for high performance in diving situations where field of view is crucial.
