    Clear mask skirt verses black mask skirt? Pros and cons

    Hey,
    I'm looking to buy another mask. All of my masks so far have had a clear skirt which yellows over time. Was thinking about getting a mask with a black skirt. I'm leaning toward the Tusa Freedom Quad to replace my Tusa Spendive 4 which is awesome.

    Any thoughts on the Pros or cons of a black skirt verses a clear skirt, other than the yellowing that seems to occur?
    To those in the miltary who serve, past and present, to protect my freedom, I thank you. I've had a good life so far.

    My first mask had a clear skirt, every mask since I have got a black skirt.
    I like the black skirt much better, I don't have anything messing with my peripheral vison with a black skirt.
    I can just focus on what is in front of me, The fact that it doesn't yellow either is nice too.
    I will never have another mask with a clear skirt.
    Say When....

    I have both. Right now I am diving a clear skirt. It's okay and it has it's pluses. I think if you are claustrophobic you might like it better; however, I prefer a black skirt. It allows for better vision (as extraneous light from the side is eliminated) and it does not yellow with age. The clear skirt is beginning to yellow and look a little dinghy. And, as we all know, looking good is the most important thing in diving.
