Trident Stretch Rubber Weight Belt Reviews

Trident Stretch Rubber Weight Belt Reviews   Stretch Rubber Weight Belt

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...

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

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: JoAnn S. on 11/13/2009

The serious divers weight belt - This weight belt was obviously designed with a lot of diver input. On the zippered weight belts, once the zipper dies, it becomes useless. The gusseted pockets for EACH weight have large flaps that securely close with Velcro so that you can safely dive in a head down posture where applicable without worrying about your weights sliding out of the pockets. The instructor for whom this belt was bought has been diving since the 80s and appreciated the arrangement of the pockets around the divers sides, so they would not be slipping under your tank. The pockets are held away from the center back with adjustable metal stays on the belt.

XS Scuba Weight Bag Reviews

XS Scuba Weight Bag Reviews   Weight Bag

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...

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.

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!!

XS Scuba Weight Pouch Reviews

XS Scuba Weight Pouch Reviews   Weight Pouch

Reviewer: timothy hancock on 4/11/2008

xs scuba weight pouch - tight fit after putting in lead shot. best thing to do is put 4lbs of shot in a 5 lbs bag. it will give a little slack and the bag will be less likely to rupture if ped. 1lb in 2, 2lbsin 3, 4lbs in 5. out of luck on 5lbs

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 Ankle Weights Reviews

XS Scuba Ankle Weights Reviews   Ankle Weights

Reviewer: Chris P. on 12/6/2012

Ankle Diving Weights - it always seemed that despite my best efforts, my feet were always higher than my head while diving. this was causing an unnatural "u" shape in my profile, and causing me back pain. this last trip, i tried the ankle weights (1# each side) that helped considerably to level out my profile, and after 18 dives (almost 19 hours underwater) i emerged from my dive vacation with no low back pain! in addition, as i didnt feel i was floating up, i was able to trim my other weights down considerably, increasing my neutrality and overall better diving! i highly recommend anyone who has low back pain while diving try out ankle weights. it worked for me! they were convenient to use and fit nicely over...

XS Scuba 创V创 Weight Pouch Reviews

XS Scuba 创V创 Weight Pouch Reviews   创V创 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.
