In the Sept/Oct 2015 issue of Scuba Diving Magazine, ScubaLab evaluated new snorkels in the marketplace. The XS Scuba Sedona Elite was noted by test divers as having an effective and reliable top valve that does a good job keeping water out. The lower purge valve earned a good rating for ease of clearing.
The real champ however was the XS Scuba Cargo snorkel which won the 2015 Scuba Lab’s Tester’s Choice award. The Cargo is a unique roll up snorkel. When rolled up, the clever semi-dry top clips on to the snorkel keeper to keep it tightly rolled for storing in a pocket. As one tester was quoted, “Easy to clear and surprisingly dry.’
