I am looking at a Tilos mask. I think it is called either the Panoramic or the Mirage. Anyone ever use this mask and know if they are a good company?

My first mask was a Tilos 4 window panaramic, and I really loved it. However, with masks, it's not so much the brand you need to worry about as mush as the fit on your face. Most dive stores (like ST) carry reputable brands.

I use a tilos frameless, and I think it's great. Actually, I use two of them. It is all about fit though.

I like my Tilos frameless. But I agree, fit is the issue.

Buy the mask that fits, not the one you want. I had always passed up Tilos because they weren't one of the major brands, turned out after a bunch of $$ on masks that didn't fit that the Panoramic fit me nicely.

Tilos is a very good company and there are many of their products in use as we speak.

I use a Tilos Flex frameless and have been happy with it but as the others have pointed out it isn't so much brand as fit.
I've tried on many very expensive masks that just were not a good match for my face. As it happens my backup mask is a rather inexpensive model I found while on vacation in Italy and I'm not even sure what the brand is.

This is good to know. I will definitely try this mask on before buying it and let that be the real decider. Thanks for all the input on the Tilos mask.

Another thumbs up for Tilos - I have a Tilos frameless and very happy with it since it didn't cost a lot and it fits my face well.

Ditto on the Tilos frameless. Bought one for a backup since it folds flat and fits in my BC pocket. My wife took notice of it however and ditched her Mares in favor of my Tilos :smiley13:

DUMB QUESTION ALERT

How does a person try out a mask before buying it? Or to completely highjack a reg?
