XS Scuba Weight Pouch Reviews

XS Scuba Weight Pouch Reviews    Weight Pouch

Reviewer: LARRY C. on 1/17/2015

XS Scuba Weight Pouch Review - $4.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - this is a nice weight pouch, the velcro closure is secure. reclaimed lead shot can be found on line to fill the pouch, this makes for a very economical alternative to buying premade soft weights. reclaimed lead is often offered in a small 7.5-8 size which is nice for a comfortable fit against your body. the downside is that occasionally you may find the weight pouch working its way out of the weight belt pocket opening...this really depends on whos weight belt you are using. this generally doesnt happen often, just remember to remove and re the weight pouch if you see that the pouch is starting to migrate out of the belt pocket. i havent tried this yet, but perhaps a larger size split shot...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

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

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 Weight Bag Reviews

XS Scuba Weight Bag Reviews    Weight Bag

Reviewer: Melissa K. on 1/1/2015

XS Scuba Weight Bag Review - $23.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Given as an Xmas present but from what I have seen so far it is a solidly built bag with a nice, strong zipper, a strong mesh top for drying and thick padded handles. Easily handled 20lbs of weight and the weight pockets. We look forward to using it in the summer with all our weights inside instead of loose in the car.

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: John S. on 9/20/2014

They do the job - I lack the butt and hips to hold my weight belt on. On my Cert. Dives I was fighting my weight belt the whole time. Since ordering these I have no problems with belt slipping or readjustment during my dives. If you are renting gear you may want to consider getting your own belt and weights because it is extra work getting it set up proper while the rest of your group is ready to go.

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!!

Scubamax Weight Belt Reviews

Reviewer: Robert C. on 8/31/2014

Scubamax Weight Belt Review - $17.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - This belt is an excellent product in my opinion. I have spent more money in the past for much of a lesser product. My only suggestion would be to change the clasp from plastic to stainless steel. This is just my preference. Diving in cold waters with a lot of thermal rotection, means carrying more weight. I dont want to chance the plastic failing at depth..

Reviewer: roger c. on 1/25/2015

Akona Weight Carry Bag. Review - $24.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Needed a weight bag to carry both types of weights and this really does the trick. Bought 2 so both of the divers in the house could have one. Strong material, good size and easy to use. A real winner!!!

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.
