Reviewer: Thomas Dawson
I am fairly new to diving and felt it would be important to have a safety item of my own vs relying on the dive master - while this one will work when I compared it to the one my dive master uses I realized I should have checked it out a bit more before buying - it will do for now and for the price I am ok with the purchase - I will likely upgrade it in time

I bought the sasauge as a result of being left alone a few times n rough water during drift diving. Now there is no excuse in rough water, not to be located. Scuba.com is my choice for deals and quick shipping!

This one is a winner for me! It is not a huge bulky monster that is in the way all the time. On the other hand when inflated its plenty large enough to see from a distance. It comes with a neat mesh bag with a clip on it to attach it to your BCD. I think its cheap insurance. Pat McCollum

it would be better if you did not have to store it in a bag, when you need to use it, you have to pull it out of the nylon bag. It would be better if it was just held together rolled up with velcro. But for the price, it is worth it, if you dont use it often.

Rating: Love this safety sausage!!
Reviewer: Paula Carter  -  View all my reviews
Knowing how much I like my other XS products, I took a chance on this and glad I did. I found this to be lightweight, compact and easy to hook on my bc. Love the small pouch it comes in. It was quick and easy to deploy with my alt air and the color is highly visible. I had purchased another brand prior to this and hated it, big bulky and heavy. Very happy with my purchase!

Rating: Its a Safety Sausage
Reviewer: Nanci B.  -  View all my reviews
Not much to say here, its a safety sausage. I preferred this one because of its size and its ability to inflate easily although I have yet to use it in a stressful situation. My only complaint so far is there is no clip on the sausage itself so I need to keep it in the little pouch to clip to my BCD

The construction was poor and quality control non-existant. The bladder leaked 100% around the entire sausage due to a cold plastic weld. Would leak as fast as you would add air.

Reviewer: william h.
bought 2 of these before going to mexico for a week. one for me and one for my better half. we practiced them on dry land and they are TALL and i would think visible even in somewhat choppy waves 3-5 high although we never had to use them.

Rating: Safety sausage
Reviewer: joel t.  -  View all my reviews
I purchase two 8 safety sausages one for me and one for my wife in preparation for the scuba diving trip to the Gulf. In fact I had to deploy the sausage during one dive since I did not finish the dive at the boat and had to be picked up by the recovery boat. The sausage was deployed for visibility. The sausage was easy to inflate, however, it would not stand up once inflated, it would just lay on the water. I had to hold it in the middle while holding on to the morring line to get it to stand up. This would essencially cut the height of the sausage in half.

Took the Safety Sausage for the 11 day dive trip to Komodo. It worked well - used it twice. Would be nice to have an option to hook it up to the BCD and to inflate it using the power inflator. Overall, good value for the money.

Rating: safety sausage
Reviewer: Mary Salaja
As a 6 safety sausage it is easy to inflate and very visible in high seas. However, the wind can blow it over, making it hard to stay upright. I attached one of my spare weights to it to hold it down in the water. This allowed the inflated tube to stay upright without me holding it. I also wanted to get at it quickly, so I rolled it up and put a velcro strap around it. The velcro is permanently attached to my BC pocket. The sausage is now easy to unroll in the water and the weight fits in the bag that comes with it. All was attached to my BC with the sturdy harden plastic clip. I am satisfied with the product. I may attach a dive emblem on it, some time in the future. The tube takes the writing of a sharpie pen. So I put my name on it, just in case I am in a situation where it is off and gets mixed with the gear of others. Mary S

Rating: MUST HAVE!
Reviewer: Valerie Simonson  -  View all my reviews
GREAT PRODUCT, I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT KEEPS AIR. IT DOES NOT FILL UP AS EASY AS THE OPEN BOTTOM SAUSAGES, HOWEVER IT IS NICE ONCE IT IS FULL KNOWING THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT KEEPING IT IN THE WATER TO KEEP THE AIR IN IT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ULTIMATE EASE, THIS MAY NOT BE THE BEST SAUSAGE FOR YOU. IT IS SOMETIMES A LITTLE HINDERING ON GETTING ALL OF THE AIR OUT BEFORE YOU ROLL IT BACK UP, I STILL LIKE IT BETTER THAN THE OTHERS. IF YOU DONT HAVE ONE, GET ONE! ITS A GREAT GIFT FOR A NEW DIVER!

PRODUCT WORKED WELL WITH NO PROBLEMS. I AM FAIRLY NEW TO SCUBA [100 DIVES] AND NOW REALIZE THAT THIS STYLE SAUSAGE HAS NO USE IN AN AREA WITH ANY POSSIBILTY OF BOAT TRAFFIC. ITS HEIGHT ATTRACTED MY ATTENTION AND IT IS TALL,BUT THE BEST SAUSAGE FOR TRAFFIC ARES MUST BE INFLATABLE UNDERWATER BEFORE YOU COME TO THE SURFACE. I WILL PURCHASE THAT STYLE BEFORE MY NEXT TRIP. IN AREAS WITH NO OTHER BOATS AROUND THIS STYLE MIGHT FIT YOUR NEEDS AT A GOOD PRICE. IT DOUBLES AS A FLOAT TO LAY ON AND STILL HAVE EACH END POP UP ENOUGH TO BE SEEN AT A DISTANCE.

We dive primarily in the Pacific NW - no matter how good your navigation skills are, you never know if you may have to surface in rough waters, strong currents, or away from your boat. I havent had to use it but feel better that I have it.

Reviewer: Larry Eggert  -  View all my reviews
every open-water diver needs a safety sausage or flag. the 6-foot length is tall enough, but it is a little "skinny". i like the grommet at the top to hang a strobe. no solas radar reflector. cant be inflated by a hose or reg have to use your mouth. i carry it for protected areas like the caribbean, but use my halcyon super big alert marker for pacific and more demanding areas.

As far as safety gear is concerned, I go by the old saying its good to have and not need, Then to need it and not have it. The sausage looks like it will be easily deployabel. I cant say that with this piece of equipment that I am looking forward to using it.But when I need to this will be perfect.
