nozzles along with diving suit and fin uke:
Twice I have seen people lose a mask. One faceplate was smashed, they don't know how it happened. It was on a 64m dive. The other one had his strap come apart, and patiently knelt on the bottom and sorted it. That was a 9m dive. Glad it wasn't me both times, but I still take my mask off on dives to this day and practice.I'm interested to know how many divers who take a spare mask, have ever lost their primary mask? Unless you are looking at long deco dives, I think taking a spare mask is a waste of stowage space. Yes, I know we are all told to carry them during training, but we were also ordered to don snorkels as novices.
