Rating:Scuba Deluxe Tank O-Ring Kit and Key Chain Fun way to store your O-Rings

Its cute and always gets a laugh at the dive site. Probably because the red tank matches the colour of my multi-tool. Im not exactly fashion-conscious – none of my gear matches in colour or brand.

It would be good if the kit included a hose o-ring or two as well as the tank rings, but it doesnt. Not as if they cost a whole lot to add. Theres plenty of room for a lifetime of O-rings.

Havent used it as a key chain – it lives in my save-the-dive box but I know at least one diver who has used hers for her car keys for a long time.

Rating:ScubaPro R095 Octo A Good Basic Octo

ScubaPro does not make my favourite regs but theres no question that their products are good quality. The R095 is their bottom-of-the-line octo. Its entirely plastic, there are no adjustments and you have to work a bit to get it to breath.

I needed an octo and bought this one because of the very good price – and Im entirely comfortable with the idea of diving with it as my safe second. Its as basic as it gets but its a solid unit.

Rating:Sherwood Oracle+ Optical Diving Mask Sherwood Oracle Mask with gauge readers

A very neat installation of 1.75+ lens in the lower part of the glass gives an unobtrusive view ahead but good ability to read gauges when looking down. Overall quality appears good and seals well on my face. Recommended but a bit pricey!

Rating:Sealife Mini 2 Underwater Dive Camera Yvonne Rusin

Camera worked as advertised! No issues with it getting wet – easy to download photos and video to my PC. Also the lithium batteries worked best.
