My experience was that they sealed fine. However, they seemed to ride very high
up on my cheek bones and I didn't like they way the felt/fit. I would say that
the field of vision seemed much better with the Seal mask.
The Seal has to be, by far, one of the best sealing goggles I've ever had.
The range of vision is also great, and barely (by about 5-10 or so degrees
to either side) limiting. I put them on after I got them, strap in front,
and they wouldn't come off. Very nice. I'd say that being manufactured in
Italy contributes to the quality. The strap adjusters are standard, like
those on a pair of Speedo goggles. I was slightly afraid of breaking them
off, due to the design of the lock, but I found that it only took slight
pressure to allow the strap to be adjusted. I will admit, however, that the
positioning of the mask on the cheekbones did take a few minutes to get used
to. (And I haven't even worn them in the water. =] )
The sunglasses, "Spray Shield," were rather nice. They fit very well to my
face, and the strap ensures that they don't fall off. The *** grips for
the temples are akin to the placement of earsocks on Oakleys, but they felt
a bit too long. The lenses are large, and the 'intake vents' ensure that no
fogging occurs. The strap is rather simple, being a nylon strip with a
moving adjuster. (It's something like the strap to a duffle bag.) I found
that the *** adjuster did not slide out of place while the glasses were
being worn, but it was VERY easily adjusted when I needed to take off the
glasses. I'm going to wear them while I bike (and did today, during my
Altogether, I'm very pleased with my purchase, and I encourage others to get

And the seal only looks goofy to you non divers. All goggles look goofy to me.
