The Editor's Pick
A newly improved mask and a slick new fin might convince scuba diehards that snorkeling is a worthy pursuit in its own right.
The gear featured here has been awarded special recognition as an Editor's Pick for one of several good reasons: it works great, it's an excellent value, it's durable, it's innovative or it's the best performer in its class. There may be other good reasons we haven't thought of yet (we'll let you know when we do!), but what's important is to know that the Editor's Pick is our best recommendation on what to buy for a specific application or type of diving. It's a recommendation derived both from empirical data and subjective experience in the field, all of which is filtered through many years of dive experience and a healthy measure of skepticism about what's supposed to be the latest and greatest gift to diving. Bottom line: if it's an Editor's Pick, it's something we'd pay good money to get.
