I added the Akona Roller Backpack Dive bag to my order, but did not see the free regulator bag in the order. I want to make sure it will be included since it is the reason I am purchasing this bag.

How does this bag hold up on the flight? Im worried about those outer pockets. I assume from the size it is not carry on. I also like the duffel. Would this work out as my day bag? I am 61 years young and just cant carry as much as I used to.
Hello Deb, this is a great bag for being used as a checked bag. The outer pockets are made out of the same durable material. As for a day bag yes you can use this, but since you are going to have wet gear I would suggest a mesh bag: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-26/018817/Akona-Mesh-Roller-Backpack-Bag.html. This one has wheels so you can pull this behind you as you walk.
I would like to use this to carry my gear on and off the boat. It will get soaked. Is it meant to get wet?
Hello Michele, not really designed to get wet. It will not hurt it if it does get wet. If you are looking for a boat bag I would suggest this one. It is the XS Scuba Wheeled Mesh Backpack Dive Bag web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-26/018233/XS-Scuba-Wheeled-Mesh-Backpack-Dive-Bag.html.
How padded is it? what is the protection for your scuba gear in the bag? i do a lot of traveling and i dont want my gear to break.
I have the Akona Lg bag and have loved it but on my return trip from BonAir this week one of my rollers broke off and I was wondering if I can just order that part instead of getting a new bag? Any suggestions?
Hi, I am looking for a bag in which i can carry all my dive gear, and the housing for my camera. is this the right bag? would be great to have some tips. thanks. mishal
Hello Mishal, this bag is big enough to hold 2 sets of dive gear. So yes this would hold your gear and your camera set-up. This bag is padded but if you are putting your camera gear in this I would make sure you add a little extra padding around your camera gear.
For the last 10yrs or so, Ive had an Akona bag similar to this one, but instead of a water bottle, it had a larger upper outside pocket. Is this new bag bigger? My other one is tough to get an exact measurement. I believe the new one is 4 inches longer, but if you could let me know Id appreciate it. Great bag, by the way.
Hi, I see that your Scuba.com certified instructors are saying that this Akona bag is 18 lbs empty, but the specs say 14 lbs. Which is correct? Looking for a good bag for my fiance and I to travel with, but that wont be overweight. Any suggestions?
Hello I have 2 questions 1- Do you send the products to Turkey, did you face any problems sending to Turkey before ? 2- As i understand If we buy this bag for 146,95 USD there are 3 small bags and a water bottle free of charge included , am i right ? Thanks
So the bag can carry 2 BCDs, 2 wetsuits, 2 sets of fins and miscellaneous gear? Also, is it TSA approved or come with a TSA type lock? Thank you, Joe
Yes you can fit 2 sets of gear in there, however free diving fins will not fit in the bag. It does not come with locks but you can purchase those here http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-111/230039/Innovative-TSA-Combination-Lock.html
