Equipment Review: X-Contact 2 Mask and Airflex Hyperdry Snorkel from Beuchat (Watch Video)

Published

on

If you’re in the market for a reasonably priced mask for diving or snorkelling then the Beuchat X-Contact 2 is a great choice, as we found out on a recent trip to Antigua.

The design offers a wide field of vision in a compact and comfortable style. It’s super-soft hypoallergenic silicone helps with equalisation and is very durable, making the mask feel more high quality than the price may suggest.

A great addition to the mask is the Beuchat Airflex Hyperdry Snorkel. It’s super flexible and comfortable with a valve that closes during immersion and an innovative design that helps to prevent any influx of water.

You can get your hands on both for less than £60 which is a great deal for any snorkeller or diver who just wants a good quality option without breaking the bank!

After over 12 months of rumours and speculation, the team at Garmin have finally launched the Garmin Descent Mk2 and Mk2i.

Garmin has gone all out with these, and with the Mk2i having the latest technology in air integration it looks to absolutely be the one to beat!
Why I hear you ask?? Well, they’ve incorporated their Sonar technology into the equation and called it ‘SUBWAVE’ – this will deliver an incredible transmission range of 5-8m..!
How does it work? Well, you’ll need to watch the video to find out!
The dive features are based on the Descent Mk1, while the fitness and life management aspects are based on the incredible Garmin Fenix 6.

With a larger viewable screen, bigger internal memory, and all the latest features including Garmin Pay this promises to be an absolute game changer!
