No pressure and no shots of salt water down the hatch. Tribord introduced full-face snorkel masks about 3 years ago, and if the number of copies--like this one--now in production are any indication, snorkelers approve.
Full-face snorkel masks remove 3 major drawbacks of standard masks. One, they expand the perimeter of their waterproof seal to distribute pressure more evenly over your face, rather than concentrating it around the sinus-cavity-central that is your eyes and nose. It makes for a more comfortable and natural fit.
Two, they relocate the breath tube to the top of the mask, so you don't have to bite down on a mouthpiece, and take care to make your own watertight seal for the duration of your swim. You can also breathe through both your mouth and nose.
Third, a full-face mask expands your view range, particularly your peripheral view, to a wide 180 degrees.
Standard backflow prevention to keep water from sloshing into the mask and an anti-fog lens design are also included.
