Hello to all! and a merry xmas i must add!

ive recently started my climb to become a PADI dive master and hopefully more and at the moment i about to finish off my open water and advanced open water.

Now im not gonna buy all the equipment right away as i know i can hire it etc until i know what im doing 100%.

But i do want Fins, mask and snorkel and as with anything there are so many different makes and styles its all very confusing. im not on a specific budget so cost isnt too much of a worry.

is there a top 10 list of these 3 things?
and again i understand that it depends on the diving im doing etc so at the moment im at PADI advanced open water stage so i obviously have my limits which i wont be going beyond, though i would like a mask that has the best field of vision possible!

any assistance would be great as im looking to get them soon as ill be going away soon on a diving holiday and want to be as comfortable as possible!

i look forward to a response!

Hi Jason,
The best thing to do mask wise is get yourself down to your LDC aand try a few masks on. On the field of vision note go for a Cressi Big Eyes or a Mares X-Vision.
As for fins, well you won't go far wrong with a set of Mares Avanti Quattros.
Snorkel is again a matter of personal taste.
Hope this helps a little.
