Rating:McNett Cotol-240 Cleaner And Cure Accelerator Cotol 240

Absolutely essential item if repairing wetsuits or drysuits with AquaSeal. It thins out the AquaSeal so you can easily apply it with a brush and makes all repairs easy and professional looking.

It is good to have spare bulbs since the Blast burns them out fairly regularly. That is the price of a high-power light in a small package.

Rating:Underwater Kinetics Mini Q40 eL.E.D. Plus The perfect light for the beginner

For those of you who are budget conscious new divers, this is one of the best gear investments you can make.I just started scuba diving last summer, and have been renting most of my gear. Many dive shops do not rent dive lights which is a shame because some of the most interesting stuff to see is hidden in darkened nooks and crannies, which is particularly true in the often murky waters of the PNW. This light is easy to use even when fully suited, and amazingly bright. Five stars!

Rating:McNett Packing Cube Organizer McNett Packing Cube

This is a great bag to have. It has a “net” front which allows you to see the item inside easily and also allows airflow. The bag is great for hoods, booties, and gloves which tend to get “lost” in your large bags.

Rating:Suprema Mini U-Beam 5 L.E.D. Light. Marginal at best

A cute light and easy to clip to your BC but dont expect much from it. The best use for it is digging for things in your gear bag in the dark.

Rating:Princeton Tec Shockwave II Light There is something to be said for “customer service”

this is a good dive light but what makes it really excellent is the company backup. if it breaks, they will send you a new one. whether it be airport baggage handling or you it off of a cliff, they dont care. the one i have is brand new, but a dive buddy of mine who is an instructor and owns a dive shop in florida only carries this brand.

Rating:Sealife DC800 8.0 Megapixel Pro Kit with Digital Pro Flash Sealife Pro

Very easy out of the box operation and settings. Used it on a recent diving trip to the Bahamas and put it on auto. Was about 50/50 for good shots? Flash did not always fire so operators may want to double up on shots with the flash setting to “on” if using auto mode to ensure images arent underexposed. Otherwise very easy to use. No leaks!

I was very pleased with this wet suit. goes on easily, not cumbersome but kept me warm while diving in Belize recently. I does stretch when wet, keep that in mind when deciding about a size. Mary
