Product Description

Star combines all the technological solutions available in modern masks on today’s market. The ergonomic buckles with double buttons make it very easy to adjust. They are positioned directly on the skirt to improve comfort, especially for lengthy dives. The sturdy, lightweight frame sits close to the face, improving hydrodynamics. The geometry of the Star was developed to greatly reduce the distance between the lens and the eyes, working with the angle of the glass and the construction of the skirt nose. What’s more, it offers the best field of vision with the lowest possible volume. Compared to other masks in the sector, Star has also improved dual-lens stereoscopic vision with a greatly reduced space between the lenses above the nose. This allows for better vision and perception of distances.

Ultimate Spearfishing Magazine's "Ultimate Mask Review":

"The Mares Star is the most compact of the Mares range. We tested both the standard version and the Liquid Skin version. The Liquid Skin range of masks incorporates ultra soft silicon to areas of the mask skirt increasing the mask's comfort and seal.

We used results from the standard version mask as they were more consistent, probably because the Liquid Skin's soft skirt meant that volumes and area of vision varied between test subjects too much. What was consistent though was the Liquid Skin had consistently lower volumes and slightly better vision as the lenses were drawn closer to the eyes with the softer skirt.

Out of all the small masks this has to be the most comfortable of the lot, especially the Liquid Skin. The straps also pull on the skirt, putting less pressure on the frame towards your face so this mask will probably be the most forgiving especially if you have issues with masks hitting your forehead. I also noticed that it fits smaller faces very well and could be an option if you are battling with other masks.

The standard version is also very well priced for such a well constructed mask. The frame is really sturdy and the silicon skirt has a nice satin finish like the sporasub Mystic, giving it a great feel. The straps are also attached to the skirt and fold away, so they won't break off like some of the other low volume masks. This is probably one of the few masks you could just chuck into your dive bag, just not under the weight belt of course. Some guys have been concerned with the lower visibility of this mask, but if reef hunting is your game, the 'star' shape gives the mask good vision in the top and corners, which is what you need down on the reef."
