I recently bought the OMER Zero3 and here are my thoughts:

1) A first I was worried about the mask leaking because I read some peoples' faces don't work with it. The first few times out, I thought I was one of them because I was getting some leakage. What I found was that, for my face anyhow, I needed to wear the strap far lower on the back of my head than I was used to. After I did that, no more leaks. I imagine other people will have to play with the strap configuration a bit to find out how to fit it correctly for their face.

2) A good shave is crucial for this mask. There is very little rubber with which to make a seal, so a couple day's worth of stubble might be enough to make a seal more difficult.

3) I still compensate the mask around 20-25', but only a tiny bit, and noticeably less than my last mask. The ultra low volume does make a big difference.

4) The visibility is excellent, as many other have stated. I like the high view aperture because when diving, I'm usually looking slightly up, so the placement of the lenses is very good.

Thanks for the review. Unfortunately I am one of those people it does not fit well (it hurts after a while).

If it fits you its a great mask! Mine is almost 3 yrs old, the strap broke fairly quick, other than that is the best mask I have tried ( for me).
