Rating: Very easy to use
Reviewer: Larry B.
I took this product to Cozumel for drift diving. Since it was common to come up in an area with other boats, all you had to do was to pull out the safety sausage and blow it up manually while you waited for your own boat. Deflating it and rolling it back up was also easy and it fits easily back into the small carrying bag which hooks inconspicuously to your BC. For the price, this product gets a "5".

Safety sausage is ok. It needs to be somewhat longer to be seen above 2 foot waves

Rating: Nice and small
Reviewer: George S.
This safety sausage rolls up compactly to fit in a BC pocket. Its much smaller than the impression I got from the picture, which is good.

Reviewer: Nancy Frazee  -  View all my reviews
I recently purchased the safety sausage with the intention to deploy under the surface to signal boats that I was coming up rather than carrying my dive flag on this particular lake I dive. I find that the mouthpiece is difficult to pull out with gloves on. Also, the carrying bag is a bit too small for my liking in regards to "putting it all back together again". It may be more appropriate to deploy in a warm water environment at the surface with no gloves.

Reviewer: Timothy Ford
I love the Akona safety sausage. I dive alot on lakes with sometimes heavy boat traffic to signal when Im surfacing. It gives me a much improved sense of safety when I cant always tow a flag due to all the trees tangling the rope. It works great attached to a cheap campers clothsline reel to reel the line in while surfacing to eliminate tangling. Its also very compact, visible and easy to inflate. Tim Ford, Branson Mo.

Rating: Quality Product
Reviewer: Chris Hebert  -  View all my reviews
This sausage is well made and designed. I tested it on my last trip to Costa Rica and it was easy to deploy and very visible. There are longer ones out there, but for me this, along with a whistle and strobe, is just fine.

If you dont have a safety sausage, this is a nice small compact addition to store in a BCD pocket or snap on. Bad feature is that it can only be manually inflated by mouth, limited use underwater.

Rating: Small sausage
Reviewer: Rick G.  -  View all my reviews
A bit smaller than most but I think that is a plus. Quick and easy to get out and small enough that I take it on all dives. My wife has not deployed her large one since we got this small one.

The safety sausage works well. havent really had to use it yet, but testing it out it seems to inflate easily and tucks away nicely to clip on the BC.
