With over 35 years’ experience as an industry leader in scuba and watersports, IST has built its reputation on innovative products that anticipate and serve the buyer’s needs. Our IST 3D Flex Dry Snorkel with 360° Swivel is a prime example. While we can't claim to have invented the dry snorkel, with the IST 3D Flex Dry we’ve definitely re-invented it!
Where other dry top snorkels employ a single float buoy or valve, this one offers FOUR valves. Multi-level and dual-hemisphere positioning ensures each valve is capable of blocking the air entrance independently, according to water level. Traditional design dry top snorkels close off the tube as soon as a change in buoyancy is detected by the float mechanism. In contrast, this snorkel's multiple valve system only closes the valve or valves that are under water: the others remain open, providing an unobstructed airway.
This specially engineered design eliminates the annoying problem of having your dry snorkel tube sealed off instantly and completely at the surface every time you turn your head or descend slightly, bringing the end of the snorkel tube close to the waterline.
Two patented, ball-joint style, 360° swivel points maximize comfort and reduce jaw fatigue: the first is located just below the mouthpiece and the second joins the purge body to the breathing tube. Both can be freely rotated to suit each individual’s facial profile and mask set-up preferences. Hypoallergenic, high grade silicone mouthpiece with bite tabs provides a secure, comfortable grip while reducing jaw fatigue to ensure easy breathing.
Should some water still manage to find its way in, the large purge chamber ensures you can continue breathing over the accumulated water longer, and makes clearing the tube fast and easy: just exhale a short, strong breath to direct water out of the bottom purge reservoir and off to the side.
To complete the package, this item comes equipped with a swiveling snorkel keeper.
