How long have you had that old dive mask?

I have noticed over the years that the one item a diver seems to be reluctant to trade in is their trusty old dive mask. How long have you had the same mask?

[Choose #4] Finally had to get retire the old mask since a hammer went right through the brain pan on it when i was getting ready to move.

[Choose #5] I have 2 masks with my prescription in. One is 9 years old, the other about 4 years.

[Choose #4] Usually 3 years until the silicone starts to get hard and doesn’t seal around the face.. I hate new mask because its hard enough to keep the lense from fogging up on a new mask...

[Choose #1] I seem to lose or break masks like a pro.

[Choose #3] mine are script, so every time my script changes I replace my mask

[Choose #3] It’s hard to find a mask to fit my face comfortably, so I try different masks but always go back to what fits
