This is the first time we’re getting to review a Mares snorkel set and it belongs to the kids. Mares seems to be, after my preliminary searches, a subsidiary of Head NV who themselves seem to be a European company…as their website states that they were once listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange.
The thing that made us want to originally get our hands on this kid’s snorkeling set were the amount of great reviews on Amazon . Even seasoned divers were saying there kids loved this snorkeling set and that it never leaked how comfortable they seemed to be with the set.
All in all, this is a great snorkel set for the young ones. We’re not putting it as our number 1 choice for a kids snorkeling set but it is a pretty sharp set that is strong competition and would be a solid pick for your child’s snorkeling adventure.
Features of the Mares Snorkeling Set for Kids include:
Soft silicone of great quality. Our tiny tester used the snorkel set in the ocean right off the bat and had no issues with leakage or comfort. In this experience the straps were comfortable around her hair and the dual-lens mask worked great.
The snorkel itself fit well in the testers mouth and it was comfortable. This is a dry snorkel with purge valve to clear water that may get in.
The fins were comfortable on our tester’s little feet, even without booties. She fit well into the foot pockets and the straps were easy enough for her to adjust with a little instruction.
The bag fits the gear and she was able to lug around for a little bit by herself until she got tired of carrying it.
This Kids Snorkel Set comes in the following colors: Pink and Blue as seen below.
