What is a full face snorkel mask?

The first full face snorkel mask was developed by Tribord and released in 2014. Full face snorkel masks cover your whole face from forehead to chin. They have 2 separate sections inside the mask. The top section is for viewing, and the lower for breathing. They have a silicone skirt that runs around the edge of your face, creating a waterproof seal.

Full face snorkeling masks have wide elastized straps to hold them in place that are adjustable, and comfortable. 

Well made snorkel masks have virtually no fogging, and there's no mouthpiece. The snorkel is incorporated into the mask. These appear shorter than traditional snorkels, as the snorkel stops at the top of the head. Air is funnelled internally through the snorkel and to the lower section of the mask.
