Rating: Pockets
Reviewer: Jason P.  -  View all my reviews
The pockets where a little smaller than I hoped. I still can fit a spool and a SMB in them but there isnt much room for anything else so I put a finger spool and SMB in one and then a slate, whistle, mirror and a folding snorkel in the other. They are made well, have d-rings inside to clip things off but they close up really well so depending on the items size this may be unnecessary. The amount of cement that comes with the pockets is completely inadequate for the task at hand but this is the case with all the other products I looked at as well. Make sure you get at least one extra tube of cement. I used what was included and then another full 1oz tube and half of another 1oz tube. All things considered I would purchase them again.

Rating: xs-scuba wet suit pocket
Reviewer: Dave Sheard
I made a wood frame 10x6 and slid it inside the pocket, this holds the pocket in the correct shape. Next I drew around the pocket and used masking tape on the outside to protect from excess glue. You will definitely need more Aqua-seal than is supplied. After gluing I used wood clamps and and 2 pieces of wood to clamp the pocket onto the suit overnight. Now to go diving and see if it actually worked :-)

Rating: The Perfect Pocket
Reviewer: Joe S.  -  View all my reviews
This pocket is the perfect size for my SMB, backup light and slate. The grommet on the bottom lets it drain easily, while the two side grommets are great for keeping everything secure. Velcro closure is solid and stable. Was easy to apply to my wetsuit, but like everyone else says, make sure you have extra Aquaseal on hand. The small tube that comes with it just isnt enough.

Rating: Drysuit/Wetsuit pocket
Reviewer: Don B.  -  View all my reviews
It works as advertised and I have applied pockets to a wetsuit and a drysuit. They are great for a slate, xtra mask, backup light, spool etc. Just put on the wetsuit and have someone outline the pocket with chalk in an area where you can access it on your thigh. Place the wetsuit flat on a hard surface and apply the aquaseal as directed. I did purchase several xtra tubes of aquaseal per pocket to make sure that I had enough on hand. Leaving the suit on the hard surface I placed some light weights from my weight bench on the pocket to insure good contact for the 24 hours required for drying. Easy to apply and they make a great addition to your exposure suit.

Rating: Great Product/Not enough Glue
Reviewer: Shawn-Paul O.
i applied the pockets to two different wet suits. the pockets are great, but for added security either attach items to the pocket or buy a zippered pocket. i have lost one item that was not bungied to the pocket. the tricky part is the glueing. one my second pocket i through out the glue that came with it and got a large container of glue. measured the width of my thigh and found it simular to my scuba tank. ed the tank in the wet suit. positioned the pocket and marked the area. then applied glue let it sit. then applied glue and let it sit. then applied glue and let it sit until really tacky applied pocket paying special attention to the corners and top of the pocket area. then applied a 1" flat webbing around the tank covering the entire pocket. that was the hard part. then applied a tightener and tightened up the strap being careful not to catch my suit. let it sit overnight in a well ventilated area. boy was i high doing this in my living room watching tv. then removed the strap and tank. this pocket is stuck solid.

Rating: xs-scuba wet suit pocket
Reviewer: RICHARD S.  -  View all my reviews
PURCHASED (6) OF THESE POCKETS AND INSTALLED THEM ON ALL THREE OF MY WETSUITS. USED MCNETT BLACK NEOPRENE GLUE (3) COATS TO INSTALL THEM. HAVE (10) DIVES USING THEM, SHOULD HAVE INSTALLED THESE ALONG TIME AGO, MAKES STORAGE OF SMB, SHEARS,REEL, AND STROBE, EASY AND STEAMLINED. WAS USING A POCKET ON MY BP/W HARNESS,BUT THE THIGH POCKETS REALLY ARE A BETTER OPTION ESPECIALLY AT THE PRICE OF $25.00 A POCKET.

Rating: Well made pocket.
Reviewer: Sam Q.  -  View all my reviews
The pocket is well made, with d-rings inside and out, lays flat when empty and is divided with a mesh interior. However, the amount of glue is very optimistic for a secure mount. Get an extra tube and you will be much happier.

Rating: Handy Accessory
Reviewer: Jeremy F.
the scuba dry or wetsuit pocket is a great item to have i have room to carry more gear and still remain streamlined. for the price, it was a must have item. the only detail that i found to be a drawback was the included 1/2oz of aqua seal, which was not quite adequate. i followed the directions and needed approximately another 1/2oz of aqua seal. it also required careful planning for the area needed to install, as the size dimensions were accurate (10" x 6" x 2.5" depth). i have not had any problems with the product itself and i now enjoy the additional space provided by the pocket.

Rating: Excellent
Reviewer: Michael Procopio
Great option for suits without factory pockets. i put it on my backup viking extreme using aquaseal, and its as secure and as functional as the factory pockets on my clx450.
