what are the dimensions of the pouches, including the depth of the gusset? can the pouches be removed from the belt? i am wondering if this could be used to hold small drybags, dryboxes, and ok-to-get-wet accessories while snorkelingi dont like the having multiple lanyards or many things on a simgle one, and was thinking a small "utility belt" might be the way to go.

Is the buckle metal or plastic? Ill need this for working in an aquarium and will be climbing over acrylic barriers, so plastic is preferred to avoid scratching the barriers.
Im looking for a pocketed weight belt to hold 4 two pound weights. Lycra preferred. Do they even make these any more? Also, is there any way to get certified for Nitrox online? Id like my guy to at least get the paperwork out of the way even if he has to do a review on the boat. Well be on the Dancer in Belize end of Oct, and since hes such a new diver, I want there to be one less thing he has to do on the boat.
I see from a previous question that the pockets can be removed from the belt but Im still not clear on whether these are individual pockets or if ther are connected to eachother in some manner. For example, on the 6 pocket model if I removed the three pockets from one side could I put only two back and leave one pocket off the belt entirely?
It is nice that the belt has a female clip attached to it, but how can I get the male side of the clip so that I can use it? Thanks, Chuk
Hello Walter, here is the male clip that will work with this: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-98/030509/Akona-Deluxe-Clip-with-Male-Quick-Release.html, http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-98/030519/Akona-by-Sherwood-Lanyard-with-Male-Quick-Release.html. Either one will work with this female clip on the weight belt.
