Rating: Not a great performer
Reviewer: Roderick S.  -  View all my reviews
I had trouble getting this carrier attached tightly enough around the tank that it wouldnt slip lengthwise on the tank, causing an unbalanced condition. Even re-cinching the straps didnt help much, they still loosened after carrying the tank a bit. Probably attaching a velcro strip to the tank and another to the straps would help secure it from sliding, but I havent tried this. Overall, Im not pleased with the performance of this product.

Reviewer: Mel Pistor
Very pleased with the quality of this item. Easily go on to the tanks. Very secure when carrying. Definately a good purchase if you have to carry tanks over a distnace, i.e. from the parking lot to the beach. You do have to remove the carrier before diving, but its not a problem to slip on and off. Great product.

Rating: how far are you going to carry your tank anyway ?
Reviewer: Roy J.
it works and if I had to carry by hand my tanks for over a 1/4 mile they would be good. However difficulty putting carrier on and off for the short distance I take the tanks to my suit up point is not worth the bother.

Rating: E-Z Tank Toting
Reviewer: Michael Turso  -  View all my reviews
The tank carriers from Scuba.com take the hassel out of hauling your tanks to a dive site or boat. They are extreamly helpful if you need to put them in the trunk of a car or have to hand them to some body on a boat. No more risk of a injury because the the tank valve rolled open during handeling. Just slide em on and tighten em up. The double D rings fit snug and adjust to any tank. I bought one for each tank I own. Mike T. PADI Rescue Diver

Rating: Scuba Tank Carrier
Reviewer: Ryan Teegarden
These work great! They make carrying my tanks so much easier, and safer. Also, I am way less likely to pick them up by the neck like I am not supposed to. The only draw back is I have to take them on an off in between dives because they dont fit while on the bc.

Rating: Why struggle?
Reviewer: Brian Leschinsky
The Scuba Tank Carrier was hands down one of my best purchases. It made carrying, transporting , and handling my 120ci tank a breeze! Easy to use, it has heavy-duty velcro straps that secure it to your tank, and a ergonomic rubber handle that makes gripping the strap comfortable and easy. Fairly priced, I highly recommend this accessory! Brian Leschinsky Boca Raton, Florida NAUI

Reviewer: steven breazeale  -  View all my reviews
Very neat concept, makes it allot easier for my wife since she is not that tall. When she picks up an aluminum 80 she barely gets it off the gro uh nd. The straps make it a ton easier.

Questions and Answers for Scuba Tank Carrier:


  • Carl:

    will they work on a pony 19cf? looking for a front mount setup and this might work.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This will be too big for a 19cuft tank.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It will adapt to a 19cu ft cylinder but is probably not secure enough to work as a pony mount in the water.

  • Allan:

    I received a scuba.com ad that states this product is buy one get one free. How does that work? When added to the cart there is no indication of this. Thank you.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Allen, yes that is a newsletter special this week and to get the special pricing you would need to order the item directly from the newsletter.

  • David:

    Will this work to carry a 13 cf tank?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello David, this will fit a tank of 6.8" diameter to 8" diameter tanks.

Scuba tanks have to be the single most bothersome piece of our scuba equipment to deal with. They are heavy, cumbersome, and just plain inconvenient to lug around. If a diver is tall enough they can carry them by the knob on the valve. This method of carrying tanks is typically uncomfortable as it doesn’t take long for the cylinder to wear on the fingers or palms of your hands. Other times you’ll see the diver with tanks propped upon their shoulder. As cool as this looks to non-divers watching them pass by, this method of tank portage isn’t any more comfortable with the heavy tank resting on top of the collar bone.

The Scuba Tank Carrier is a welcome change to the unpleasant hassle of carrying your cylinders from the car to the shop, dive site or boat. Featuring a molded, easy to grip handle situated between 2 adjustable straps designed to fit any size cylinder, the Scuba Tank Carrier allows the diver to carry their cylinders conveniently and comfortably like a briefcase. The thick nylon webbed straps are designed for durability and ensure your tank carrier will offer many years of trusty service. After just one use, most any diver will find this is a must-have item in their dive kit from that point on!
