XS Scuba Weight Pouch Reviews

Reviewer: David F. on 6/29/2014

XS Scuba Weight Pouch Review - $3.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - With this pouch, and the other pouches tailored to other weights, one can easily make up weights that are comfortable, accurate and easily handles without lead oxide or lead dust. The key to accuracy is an inexpensive digital kitchen scale which will let you meassure out weights to a fraction of an ounce. The key to avoiding lead oxide or lead dust is to use nickel-plated shot that is available from reloading supply outlets, albeit at a premium to ordinary lead shot. While more expensive than ordinary chilled shot, the cost is comparable with that of pre-molded lead weights. I recommend using a bit of fabric paint, available in craft stores, to clearly mark the weight in large lettering...View Full Review

Trident Stretch Rubber Weight Belt Reviews

Reviewer: Robert Welsh on 10/27/2006

Good Choice for Freediving - this rubber weight belt is depth compensating and slip resistant. it doesnt slide around like traditional web weight belts. so, maneuvering comfort and safety are maximized. your buckle is always in the front where it should be. the belt doesnt get 5 stars due to a couple of minor flaws. it doesnt come with any directions expaining how to thread and assemble the 3 confusing hunks of metal which come comprise the buckle. maybe im a tad slow... but it took me a while of playing with it to figure it out. adjustment takes a little getting used to also. however, once you get it adjusted, it stays that way. you should plan to have dedicated weights for that belt. you wont want to add and remove...View Full Review

XS Scuba Lead Shot Weight Reviews

XS Scuba Lead Shot Weight Reviews    Lead Shot Weight

Reviewer: Bill Michie on 6/8/2007

dive weights - Excellent product. It served me well on my recent dive trip to Hoi An, Viet Nam. However, each airport, with the exception of the Danang International Airport near Hoi An, asked me to come back in a little room and supervise the security personnel searching my luggage and scuba equipment. Apparently, the concern was that the dive weights had the appearance of gun powder or the like as I was told. Other than the Danang International Airport where the guards were reading the newspaper and magazines and not viewing the luggage as it went through the x-ray machine, I was always asked to come and supervise a security search of my diving equipment! I had a great dive in Hoi An with Rainbow...View Full Review

XS Scuba Trim Weight Tank Pouch Reviews

XS Scuba Trim Weight Tank Pouch Reviews    Trim Weight Tank Pouch

Reviewer: Keven Acosta on 7/17/2008

Nice - Heres the deal. if you dive alot and in differant waters (warm to cold) this is a cool product. when going from a 3mm to a 7mm this can be a big help. add your wt. to the trim pouch and keep it in your dive bag, when you switch to 7mm add your trim pouch and after your bouancy check, your off. Also good for divers that need just a little help keeping their upper body down

XS Scuba Cordura Weight Belt Reviews

XS Scuba Cordura Weight Belt Reviews    Cordura Weight Belt

Reviewer: David Howard on 5/20/2007

GOOD VALUE - Great belt. I used it in OW classes, then retired it as I bought an intergrated weight BC. Friend borrowed it that wears a 48" waist and it fit fine. I wear a 38" waist and it worked equally well. Made great. Buckle is secure, but easy to remove for weight removal in class. Pockets easily hold my 4lb soft weights without issue. Velcro closing the pockets is strong. Belt will be stiff for first few dives, then get better. No worries with this product. If I knew I was going to buy an intergrated weight BC that soon, I could have bought just a belt and solid weights and saved some money. However, with he quality of this belt, resaling it will not be an issue. If you plan to use a belt...View Full Review

XS Scuba Ankle Weights Reviews

XS Scuba Ankle Weights Reviews    Ankle Weights

Reviewer: Wendy Sacks on 7/6/2014

Great product - Great product. I own ScubaPro fins that float so it was difficult to keep my feet from floating up during my safety stop. I bought a different pair of ankle weights but they are not as well made as these. They were made from a nylon material that got runs in it and the lead beads started to come out. These are made from a more durable material and just better constructed all around. Would highly recommend these ankle weights.

Reviewer: R Diane Richards on 11/11/2011

I love this weight bag! - i bought one of these about five (or more) years ago and found it helpful for transporting my soft weight on and off boats. i did not do a lot of cold water diving over the last few years and stored this on a patio where it was exposed to the elementsthe bag looked a little faded, but after a good soak and some spider web removal, it really didnt seem any worse for wear (it had been on many a boat deck prior to spending hard time outdoors at my current apartment). point is, this is a very well made product, and when a friend from out of state booked a channel islands trip with me and i offered to loan her some of my weights, i picked up another bag to carry her stash. the price is also...View Full Review

XS Scuba Quick Release Single Diving Weight Pocket Reviews

XS Scuba Quick Release Single Diving Weight Pocket Reviews    Quick Release Single Diving Weight Pocket

Reviewer: Javier d. on 10/21/2008

Very good hold - i actually used this velcrod to itself around the back of my belt (instead of the intended passing of the belt through the "belt tunnel"), since the belt wasnt broken-in enough to adjust the standard fittings. it held very well w/ 4 pounds in it, even though i couldnt get the entire velcro patch to overlap (it overlaps just fine when you use it properly). i felt free to use heavier weight for breath-hold diving, knowing i could ditch a single pouch as opposed to the whole belt got deeper, longer!!

Trident Weight Belt Suspenders Reviews

Trident Weight Belt Suspenders Reviews    Weight Belt Suspenders

Reviewer: Dean Nolan on 9/19/2006

Suspenders are great for weights - Buying suspenders for my weight belt was one of the best ideas I have had. No more coming up from a dive with my weight belt in my hand! This is a poor persons "weight and trim" system, and is no frills, but it has served me well. A word of warning, weights are not easily "ditched" while wearing a bc with this product. You would need to undo your weight belt buckle, plus the two shoulder strap buckles, and then pull. But, if that is not your main concern, they work fine.

Akona Weight Carry Bag. Reviews

Akona Weight Carry Bag. Reviews    Weight Carry Bag.

Reviewer: Scott Michael on 12/6/2008

Best weight bag Ive ever seen or used - Its strong with straps that support the bottom of the bag and not just the sides. There are large brass grommets to drain water from the bag. Its large enough to carry weight for a number of people. When our dive club goes out for Open Water training, two bags are enough for 6 divers in fresh water. Tyhe handles are comfortable even when the bag is heavy. A couple of our instructors have used their bags for years and except for a little fading due to sun exposure, the bags are no worse for wear.

XS Scuba ´´V´´ Weight Pouch Reviews

XS Scuba ´´V´´ Weight Pouch Reviews    ´´V´´ Weight Pouch

Reviewer: Peter van den Broek on 3/25/2009

Flexible solution for variation in balast requirement - I use both wet and drysuits in salt and fresh water, forcing me to adapt my weight regularly. With the V weight pouch, I can do this without too much problems. I mount the pouch between my cylinders of my twintank and not in the groove of my backplate. The shot weight is retained securely inside by the effective double velcro closure. I have no trim or balance issues using this device and prefer it to V and tail-weights.
