Hi, Is this the DIN version? Thanks,
Hello Axel, no this is the yoke version. If you are looking for the Din version go here: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-180/033497/Atomic-T3-Titanium-DIN-Regulator.html
When buying an Atomic T3 regulator there seems to be two options: black and black with Octo. What are the differences if any?
Is there a clear advantage to buying titanium parts, sealed first stage? Im buying for my daughter (She is 16 yrs old and would like to go into marine biology. Already certified) so I want to know it will be highly reliable. Also looking for anyones personal experience on: do you buy a regulator for life or do you upgrade throughout your diving? Thank you for your responses.
Hello John, a sealed first stage will help keep the water from going inside the first stage to prevent freezing if you are diving in water with ice. As for upgrading the regulator over time the manufactures will change there lines and when new tech comes out they will go with that so if you have a regulator that is 20 years old will be hard to find part for service on that.
Is this the standard yoke in the U.S. Or is it a DIN version like the UK sells?
Hello Koby, this is the yoke style version. If you are looking for this in a din you will find it at: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-180/033497/Atomic-T3-Titanium-DIN-Regulator.html.

The Best Regulators Ever Designed
How materials and passion come together for perfect dives
At Atomic we sometimes feel like a symphony conductor – bringing together exotic materials, groundbreaking design, and superior manufacturing in perfect harmony. The result is our signature line of regulators that are widely considered the finest ever designed by independent reviewers and passionate divers across the globe. So how do we do it? There are no real secrets here...we are an open book and want you to see for yourself why Atomic regulators are the finest ever to submerge. No other company has the courage or determination to put all these elements together as we have. Take a look...
“Compromise” Is A Word We Don’t Know
Titanium is uncompromising...and nobody uses it like Atomic
There is simply no better material for the ocean environment than Titanium. A Titanium regulator part could actually survive beneath the sea for centuries without a trace of corrosion. Atomic heavily invested in the people, machinery and time needed to develop new fabrication techniques at our own USA R&D facilities. If you see other companies claiming “Titanium” regulators, closely investigate. They do not employ these materials as thoroughly or effectively as Atomic Aquatics. You will see on the following pages exactly which parts in every Atomic regulator are machined from Titanium and why they excel.
Atomic wins the regulator trifecta:
natural performance – low maintenance – stunning appearance
The ultimate test of any regulator is how it breathes. Atomic Aquatics designed “natural breathing” into every regulator model, regardless of materials or price. Just because we design a regulator using different materials to achieve a lower price-point, does not mean we compromise on performance. Every review or independent test an Atomic regulator has been involved in has concluded with a top ranking. Superior performance is inherent in every Atomic model at any dive depth or breathing rate. Our use of corrosion-resistant materials also results in much lower maintenance requirements for divers. We stand behind this claim with our 2-Year/300 Dive Warranty. Finally, beautiful appearance is an Atomic imperative. Every time you pull your Atomic reg from its bag, you will be proud of its technologically-superb appearance...and other divers may take an envious glance. Our plating processes and machine-turned finishes produce an immediately recognizable distinction.
