Stainless steel snorkel vs plastic snorkel
Between the stainless steel snorkel and your typical plastic snorkel, there’s not much of a difference besides the construction of the snorkel itself. Typically, your stainless steel snorkel will be made from high-quality steel giving it a more structural rigidity and robustness, and it’s corrosion-resistant.
One of the main reasons why people get stainless steel snorkel is its tough and rugged look. Although the stainless steel snorkel is made to withstand anything, making it pretty tough. It can still get badly scuffed and scratched when taken off-road. This may diminish its good looks but it will stay intact.
When it comes to the plastic snorkel they’re just as strong and durable made from UV resistant linear low-density polyethene (LLDPE). An LLDPE plastic snorkel is strong enough to withstand impact depending on the thickness of the snorkel.
The LLDPE plastic snorkel is usually flow-tested to ensure that airflow is not restricted. This is to debunk any beliefs that it won’t give enough air flow in comparison to the steel snorkel.
