Rating:Princeton It works and didnt flood

Reading reviews about previous versions flooding. Also read in QA about its been redesigned and the 40 year sticker which mine had. Bought on Black Friday 2014 and finally got to use it 28 May 2015. Did 2 dives in daytime and first dive went to 47. Second dive was 25. Turned light on both dives and it worked flawlessly!

Rating:Zeagle Another quality Zeagle item

Wanted a bladder for my Zeagle Tech BC that was better suited/more manageable for single tank diving. This fit my harness perfectly and performed great, which is what Ive come to expect from Zeagle products. A lot less drag from the big 65 lb lift wing that came standard. Highly recommended if your looking to make your kit more modular based on dive needs!

Rating:Henderson Like a second skin

Took to Belize in March. Felt like a second skin – never felt constrained or had to struggle out of it. Great buy!

Rating:Scuba Used? Quality control issues?

Seems like a nice knife but I paid for a new one.
I was sent one with scratches and pits on the knife and scratches on the sheath.
No resolution from scuba.com as of yet.

Rating:Oceanic Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel

I love this snorkel, it works very well and is replacing my other dry snorkel in my gear.

Rating:ScubaPro Great dive computer

bought this for my daughter, who now has 3 dives on it, and she loves it. the three-button interface is pretty intuitive and easy to use. when you are diving the display is easy to read and shows all important information. we both like the layout better than the “watch style” computers we used in the past the luna display is less cluttered and well thought out. while the luna is larger than many other dive computers, it fits comfortably on the forearm and provides you with a nice large display. hoseless air integration has worked perfectly.

irda connectivity takes a few steps to set up under windows (load drivers, load software, restart windows, etc.), but we had no problems getting it to work. the included software (smartrak) is fine, although it only works under windows (not os x on a mac). if youre using a mac, though, its relatively easy to import your dives into subsurface (open source dive software), which is what i do.

all in all a great computer.

Rating:Sherwood Regulator follow-up support.

This regulator seems not to draw as easily as my previous rig and appears to require more effort to “suck” the air through, no matter how the valve switch is adjusted. This makes the dive rather unpleasant and not relaxing, as one always seems to be obliged to exert an effort to pull the air through. I have contacted Sherwoods own technical support and they inform me that the regulator may require adjustment from the vendor, but scuba.com have not responded to my requests for such support.

Rating:Aqua Smaller sizes only good for tropical usage.

This is an excellent and well thought out BC for travel. However the two smaller sizes XXS/XS and SM/MD are not suitable for colder water or use with a wetsuit. One star for the its design and quality. It appears well made with nice features like a pocket for storage, grommets for mounting a knife sheaf and a quality braided flex hose for the infiltrator along with an attached dust cap. Second star for its fitment. Ins a unisex BC. Black or pink models are identical. They are not cut differently for men or women. However they fit both VERY well with the adjustments. My wife tried on a dozen BCs and found the Zuma to most comfortable and best fit. Especially the tank location does not pull on your shoulder and does not sit too high or low. The final star for its ability to travel light and compact. Completely dry and totally deflated this BC rolls up exceptionally small and can fit into a walmart plastic shopping back with room to spare!
Now the major flaw. The two smaller sizes are only rated at 22lbs of lift and NOT 34lbs as advertised. This worked great for my wife in the pool. And will work great in any other warm water or tropical conditions. However it was a complete disaster recently on a checkout dive at the lake where the water was 45F. My wife was in a 7mm suit with a 5mm core and cover as was I. We both had our BCs maxed out at 20lbs of weights with an additional weight belt. This exceeded the abilities of the smaller sized Zuma. The larger sized Zuma with 34lbs of lift worked well. If the smaller Zuma provided the same 34lbs of lift this could be a 5 star product.

Rating:Trident Most durable and stable float out there

Super well constructed and can you say durable. This float is great for Divers flag. I attached some poly rope and an 8 lb anchor and you have a great dive flag system. I recommend to anyone and the shipping was super fast, great job to scuba.com once again for superior service
