Is the aqua lung LX supreme for cold and warm water use or strictly cold water, the description is confusing.
Hello Ken, it is design to works just as well in either cold or warm water. But with the Supreme Version for water colder than 50°F / 10°C - Specially adjusted to resist freezing Second stage heat exchanger provide excellent freezing resistance. But you can also use this in warm water diving also.
Two quick questions: does this come with a DIN or Yoke mount, and is the lip shield removable?
Hi Tom, Yes the lip shield can be removed by the diver. Also we linked the regulator in DIN for you. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-180/033411/Aqua-Lung-Legend-LX-Supreme-DIN-Regulator.html

If you want the same high performance features and ease of breathing as the Legend LUX but without the pink gold finish, you will find it with the Legend LX. Like the Legend LUX, the Legend LX features the Master Breathing System (MBS).
The MBS is a new, simple and effective way to adjust the breathing performance of your Legend LX. The MBS controls two functions at one time. It controls the direction of air, which alters the venturi effect, as well as changes the opening effort. One control – two functions, it doesn’t get easier.
