Are the Decathlon Subea Easybreath masks for diving?

Have you seen a commercial for the fantastic Easybreath swimming masks from Decathlon? Thomas has, and he was extremely impressed. Right now he is considered buying one for himself, but there is one slight problem… is the Subea Easybreath mask only for snorkeling on the surface of the ocean, or can it be used for diving as well?

The thing is, Thomas enjoys looking down at fishes and beautiful colors under the water. But, Thomas also likes swimming down to the bottom to pick up all sorts of shells and other nice things he discovers there. If it is 50cm to the bottom or maybe 150cm doesn’t matter, the thing still remains the same – he wants to dive as well, not only swim on the surface.

He knows snorkeling works fine in general, also when diving. But, it sounds incredibly nice with the Subea Easybreath mask which keeps the water from actually entering the pipe (snorkel) itself, and thus, it becomes much easier to use, and especially for kids and so on.

But – then he checked out the Subea Easybreath mask in the shop, and at the front glass, it says not for diving. So, what is the truth? Is this just a warning, just like you see warnings about the hot coffee in McDonald’s being hot? Or is there more to the warning?

What’s the truth? Can the Easybreath mask from Decathlon be used for diving?

First of all, Thomas has tried the mask himself, and he has also checked out a lot of reviews of the mask. The experience of Thomas aligns very well with the general reputation of the Easybreath mask, and that is – you can dive with the mask, but you will get a big pressure on your face, which is really uncomfortable, already by swimming a few centimeters beneath the surface with the mask.

As a result, the Easybreath mask isn’t made for diving, and it doesn’t work well for diving. It is amazing for swimming along the surface looking down, but it will not work well for those who actually want to swim down to the bottom as well.

Make up your own mind. After trying the Subea Easybreath mask, Thomas has decided not to keep a mask for himself. He bought one, tried one, but this was not what he was looking for. It is for sure cool if you live in a totally clean sea with lots of colorful fishes swimming beneath, but if it is a bit tougher atmosphere where you plan on swimming and if you want to actually do more than just swimming on the surface, this might not be the ideal solution for you!

Have you tried the Subea Easybreath mask from Decathlon? Thomas would love to hear your thoughts about the mask!

Testing Kazi 84031, a 16 in 1 Lego Super Tank

Thomas has gotten seriously into testing Chinese Lego, and recently he constructed the 16 in 1 Lego Super Tank from Kazi. This is know to be one of the better Chinese Lego brands, but is it really that good?

The Kazi 84031 16 in 1 Lego Super Tank comes in lots of small packages, 16 in total. In every single package you will find instructions on how to build 2 different small pieces, meaning that you can actually build 32 different small constructions with this package (but only 16 at the same time).

The instructions are easy to follow, and Thomas had a great time constructing it with kids at the age of 5 and 7 years old (who mostly could construct all the small Lego toys without any help).

When you are finished playing around with the small figures, you will need to take them apart in order to construct the big tank.

The total package comes with around 550 bricks, and the price when Thomas bought it was around 20 USD (but, sometimes it is more expensive than that). The bricks are 100% compatible with normal Lego bricks, making it easy to use these bricks for other Lego constructions, or using normal Lego bricks to make these constructions even cooler.

Thomas was curious to see the big tank and what it would be like. But, to be honest, Thomas didn’t construct it himself, but the seven year old boy constructed the tank all by himself and without help. Here you can see a little animation of the construction process.

It took a little while, but it wasn’t a very hard thing to build! The bricks always fitted smoothly, and there was no trouble at all. There are no figures coming with this package, so don’t expect there to be soldiers around as you open the different packages.

Thomas is very satisfied with the package. It isn’t the biggest tank in size, but it is still nice and cool. But, it might be that kids will actually have more fun with the 16 small toys than the one big toy. Anyway, this is good and can warmly be recommended for fans of World War II Lego pieces from China. The quality is good, so there is nothing to complain about when it comes to that!
