Reviews about Cressi Minima
This mask was designed specifically for deep sea diving, with innovative features that place it at the top of its category.
The special reduced skirt, complete with a small seal ring, sticks like a suction cup to the face, leaving minimum air space inside the mask, which make compensation extremely easy, taking very little air from the lungs.
The lens-eye distance is the absolute smallest on the market and guarantees, even with small diameter lenses, excellent visibility in all directions.
The two optic glass lenses are thicker than the standard to allow a special safety mould. The strap comes with instantly adjusting buckles for an easy and precise fit.
Ideal use: skin diving, snorkelling and as a spare mask for scuba diving.

Me and a friend of mine are interested in the Dark silicone/ black version of the cressi minima mask. Do you know when you will have them. By the way this is the best very low volume mask for competitive freediving.
I am also interested in buying this mask with black silicone. Are there any in stock?
Got black on black?
Do you have any black on black?
Is the dark black, black skirting and frames?

Excellent deep freediving mask. 3 days to Canada, for a mask that would cost 50$ US or more here. Thanks!
Dark black mask
I recently ordered the Dark Black cressi minima mask. The mask is great, and so is dive inn's extremely fast delivery.
Amazing. the perfect mask !

Very nice. This mask is so perfect for freediving, low-volume, very nice visibility, and most of all: it was shiped to me in 4 days to Montreal, at a much lower cost than geting it in store.
This mask is really comfortable, but myself and several other people who use it, all have a problem with the mask leaking when used with a snorkel. Without snorkel it's watertight, but with snorkel it leaks. Another fried uses one and doesn't experience this problem. Also be aware that when shipped to Canada, a brokerage fee of .00 and GST are eventually charged by DHL (the shipper), usually about a 5 weeks after the product arrives.
Perfect freedivingmask. Fits like a glove
Spearfishing rocks the world
an excellent mask that makes you wana go spearing any time of the day in ay weather. best fit ever. a must buy for all water sports enthusiasts gone fishin'
The best freediving mask I've tried.
Best delivery in the world!
I didnt belive it!!! 2 days! then I had my mask in my hand! From Spain to sweden! and much cheaper then if I had bought it in a store in sweden (including the shipping cost) Never seen anything like this! Thanks!
Good overall, great for freediving
I just came home from a week in Egypt where I was able to test my new Minima in the Red sea, and I'm really happy with it! It is light and comfortable and there is a notable difference in the amount of air required to equalise it compared to my old mask (Mares Forma). Before trying it in water I was a little worried it would leak, since it didn't feel very tight against my skin in air, but once in the water it worked perfecly, not letting in even a drop of water while freediving! I used it for scuba too, which worked fine, but if you are not into freediving you could probably get something cheaper and/or with better field of view.
It's an excellent freediving mask, I have used down to 42 mts. without problem. The only drawback is that it leaks when use snorkel, but who need one!
I have used cressi masks for 25 years. This mask is very light. And seals very well.
Is it possible to order a Minima with black silicone, black frame, but transparant lenses, not shaded black ones?
The lenses for the minima mask are not tinted, but transparent.
Dark/black cressi minima
The best low volume freediving and spearfishing mask i have ever tried. The fit is absolutely perfect. No water gets inside this mask. Buy it, you won't go wrong with it. Yet again Diveinn delivered this product whithin one and a half day from ordering it! Great mask, great diving store!

I purchased two minima masks and both leaked after going to a depth of only 75'. Scubastore has great service and I had no problems returning the masks and getting advice from them. After a little research I bought the Picasso Black Team Sombra dark lens and I'm very happy with it. I was extremely impressed with the great personal service I received from scubastore. There prices are great too.
Great fit, low volume, excellent price. Buy it!
Spare part for this mask?
Great mask, super low volume, best I've tried for apnea. But the mask straps are not too good, which ones fit this mask?
The Minima is my second mask, and I love it. It is a very small mask overall, which is nice because it makes you feel less claustrophobic and suffocated. It is also very comfortable and soft, but you must be careful not to smile too big because the mask might leak. Service from diveinn was also excellent. I enjoy buying my gear here; it's inexpensive and it arrives in good time. Excellent product and excellent service. I look forward to buying another Cressi from Diveinn.
I tried this mask for a while and went back to my Superocchio. For my small face, the fit wasn't very comfortable. The field of vission wasn't as good as the Occhio either. It also leaked. I really liked the idea of the very low volume, but the trade off just isn't worth it.
Clear cressi minima
I am blown away by the service at scubastore.com. I ordered my mask on June 25th and I just got it an hour ago on the 30th. This was so fast that I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I WILL be ordering a Picasso wetsuit ASAP, why would I go local and pay twice as much. Thanks scubastore.
Great mask for freediving, excelent service from Scubastore: delivered in Holland in only 3 days
Very nice low volume mask for Constant weight. The field of vision obviously is not extensive - which I actually like very much... Nice low-volume alternative is the Sphera which also has a very good reputation for deep diving.
excellent mask for diving and freediving, havent used anything this comfortable for years
Best mask ??
help please, which has less volume, cressi matrix, horizon / mares x vision. How much more volume than the cressi minima. Which do you recomend recomend and why
A great buy, from a great store...
This is a great mask, the skirt is very soft yet snug. Field of vision is not the best, but still very good for a mask of this size. It is a small, simple, and durable mask that fits great. I highly recommend it and will be buying more Cressi products in the future. Also, the Scubastores service was prompt and inexpensive. Their customer service was friendly and helpful. It was great to do business with you guy's, thanks so much. Appreciativly, Picksmith
Cressi minima leaks
I bought the mask a few months ago. In the pool it seemed a good mask. It fitted very well, although the vision is limited. However, this summer it turned out that the mask leaks as soon as I freedive down to more than 10 meter. For freediving, I use now my old mask again: the Scubapro Futura.
I'am a bodysurfer-waterman who has used the minima for the last two years.This is the best mask I have found for my activities.It seldom fogs and takes a pretty good pounding.My only suggestion to cressi is to put a more substantial strap on it. Trip Browne Wrightsville Beach,N.C.
I bought this mask for underwater hockey. It's a great mask, well built but alas not that great for hockey. Why? The field of view (down and to the sides) is tiny!! Even though it's a very low volume mask the side windows are frosted for some bizarre reason and it feels like you're wearing blinkers.
Since 1980 I practically use only masks "Ñressi sub" With in my collection there is a mask which to me has served 15 years. I hope, as a new mask "Minima" Will be not worse. I float every day the order of 2.000 m in any weather. On Friday on October, 20th has received a mask and the beginnings of test. To whom it will be interesting communicate with me I shall inform on results.
The best mask I've ever used for extreme snorkling!!!!
I tested at least 8 masks to get here. This mask really let you know about the advantages of low volume masks when used in free diving. Do prefer the black/black so as to enjoy your dive without disturbing sun rays. Great price too...even with the courier expenses.

I am overwhelmed by how amazing Scuba-store is, and I can’t believe my luck that I found you! However, I must confess to have thought twice before placing an order; after all you are in Spain and I am in the UK! But, since the item was so much cheaper on your website than anywhere in the UK that I could find the same kit (even with P&P added-on) I decided to take a risk and order it. I am glad I did. The item arrived within 48hrs in perfect condition – exactly what I wanted, to my door - and I even saved £10 for my complete lack of effort! What’s more, your helpful emails and the combined excellent service from DHL simply made the whole purchasing experience a real pleasure! Thank you – please keep up the good work and I promise I’ll be back to shop with you again!
I recently ordered the Dark Black cressi minima mask. The mask is great. extremely fast deliver (48h to norway). subastore is great!
I bought and used this mask fora few months only, I have to say that I am not that happy with the minima, the face fitting was not that great and I had leaks, specially if you grow any hair in a day or so, the field of vision was very limited for my use, spearfishing, there were plenty of fish I did not get to see until they were literally in front of me, leaving very little time to react. My potato nose took a beating too after a few hours as well. The quality of the mask is good, it shows no tears, I would go with the balck skirt, the clear one shows decoloration.
I ordered it two weeks ago from Scubastore, I had it two days later in Amsterdam, great! The mask is wonderfull, great fit (and I have a broad face, so was a bit worried in advance). Also in the water is works very well, no leaks and good visibility. The best mask on the market for freediving!
Hola a todos.Por consejo de mi médico, suelo nadar como mínimo tres días a la semana en la piscina durante el año. Tengo problemas con las gafas porque me resultan molestas en las cuencas de los ojos y acabé comprando máscaras que, supongo que por el cloro, se me estropean muy rápido. Para mi mala suerte, he tenido que utilizar pinza en la nariz porque debo de tener alergia y luego respiro muy mal. La máscara mínima me pareció que podría ser lo que necesito un dos en uno. Os pediría que me dierais vuestra opinión y a ser posible en español.

Just bought this mask from scubastore and the delivery time was unbeleivable, ordered on monday night, got delivery on wednesday morning in Ireland. The mask itself is a good facial fit but found that the strap adjustment is not too clever as I have to keep adjusting as the toggles do not seem to keep it in the correct position and let the strap slip through. I found visibility to be very good and the black (glittery) skirt creates a good seal. Overall very good value and delivery. T
Excellent mask, I have used mine for 5 years now and have started to outfit my children with the same. The soft skirt seems to fit well on many faces. I have not experienced problems with snorkel, I just stick the snorkel inside the strap of the mask, I never use the holder which comes with the snorkel itself. Maybe that is the solution to snorkel problems.
Très satisfait de Scubastore. La livraison cest bien passé, pourtant mon habitation nest pas facile à trouver. Merci à Pierre davoir drivé le livreur. En plus le masque me va comme un gant !! (jai un visage large)
J?ai un visage large => le masque me va très bien ! Très satisfait de Scubastore. La livraison cest bien passé, pourtant mon habitation nest pas facile à trouver.
I find I have a very hard time getting it to seal properly. That almost no matter what I do it leaks. . Starting to think there is a problem with the mask itself. I even tried lining the rim with silicone grease & I still took on water. I will probably be getting a new mask when I can afford it. Any advice to get this thing to seal would be great.
Great mask, but dont smile or it lets in water - also the field of vision isnt great but thats a trade off with the low volume I guess...
