Innovative Deluxe Snorkel Vest with Crotch Strap And Whistle Reviews

Innovative Deluxe Snorkel Vest with Crotch Strap And Whistle Reviews   Deluxe Snorkel Vest with Crotch Strap And Whistle

Reviewer: Holly M. on 6/15/2010

Vest recommended! - first of all a few things about me: i like good equipment, i research to find the best of quality and cost (without skimping), i am in my 40s, in good shape but could loose a few ), and im a water baby. so.... i went to several dive shops and looked extensively online for a snorkeling vest. this vest is one of the best i was able to find in craftsmanship, material, and cost. the material is soft and very sturdy with durable stitching and sealing. the neck area is open and comfortable. i found the shape of the neck opening much more comfortable than other snorkeling vests ive worn. nothing rubbed by body or arms. the vest is light weight so if youre packing for a plane ride its all...

Oceanic Air XS II Reviews

Oceanic Air XS II Reviews   Air XS II

Reviewer: Jung K. on 2/3/2007

One less hose, but could be better - The Oceanic Air XS II works just as advertised. It was relatively easy for me to replace the inflator on my BC. My BC must have come with a slightly different hose than the Air XS was meant for. The Air XS came with a clip thats supposed to cover the hose connector, but it wont fit on my hose. The inflator and the purge valve are easy to find. But the dump button is kind of small and will take some time for me to locate without looking. I am happy with the Air XS II and very happy to get rid of one hose. Im sorry I waited so long to make the change.

Zeagle Zip Mount Adaptor Reviews

Zeagle Zip Mount Adaptor Reviews   Zip Mount Adaptor

Reviewer: Robert Riddle on 6/22/2013

Great mounting system! - I only recently discovered the Zip-Mount system. For some reason it is rarely publicized. The salesmen at our local Zeagle dealer had never even heard of it. Ive bought a pair of 3cf SpareAirs for my buddy and myself and wed never found a satisfactory way of mounting them. Putting them on the front of the BC leaves them constantly in the way. And putting mounts on the BC tank band causes problems with the tank mounts on most dive boats. Dry runs showed us that getting the SpareAirs out of and back into mounts on the tank straps was extremely difficult. The ZipMount SpareAir sleeve puts the unit more on the side. It is out of the way but does not interfere with boat tank... View Full Review

Reviewer: Dan G. on 8/17/2007

good buy - great item to add your list. it reduces a lot of clutter because your octo stays right with your inflater hose instead of dragging on the bottom and it is one less hose to worry about. you figure with the amount of equipment you have to dive with anything you can eliminate is a plus.

XS Scuba BC Washout Hose Reviews

XS Scuba BC Washout Hose Reviews   BC Washout Hose

Reviewer: Ron D. on 4/22/2013

Very handy, time saving, tool to have - I travel for almost all of my diving and Im fairly OCD about rinsing my gear after each dive. But when I get home I give everything one last good rinsing & dry before storing it until my next trip. I tend to spend extra time making sure I have all the salt and other contaminants rinsed out of my BCDs bladder. The washout hose from XS Scuba saves me a lot of time doing this. Its simple to attach to a garden hose and goes right on the inflator of my BCD. Be sure to have the water turned off until youve attached the house to your BCD or water will spray out of the washout hose. My perferred method is to attach the washout hose to my BCD, put a 1/2 cap full of BCD wash in the house,... View Full Review

Atomic SS1 Octo Reviews

Atomic SS1 Octo Reviews   SS1 Octo

Reviewer: Donald Dutcher on 6/19/2011

Atomic SS1 Titanium Octo - Outstanding Reg - I bought this because I needed an alternate air source for my travel rig. What I liked most was the fact that the regulator was removeable and using attachments you can change it to a different BC without having to cut the bands off every time. Also that you can remove it for travel. I did 7 dives in the Caymans with this reg as my octo. At times during the dives, I intentionally switched over to it and it performed flowlessly. It breaths as good as the name brand regs I have used and it cleared easily, even at 105 feet. Although I have not yet tried it in cold water, I have no dought it will work fine. BOTTOM LINE - this is the best alternate reg ive used. This is my first... View Full Review

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

IST Double Hose Retainer Clip Reviews

IST Double Hose Retainer Clip Reviews   Double Hose Retainer Clip

Reviewer: Billy M. on 9/14/2008

These clips are great. - when we boat dive, its far easier to clip our bcs off to a floating line in the water, put on our drysuits, mask, and fins on deck, and then finish suiting up in the water. one problem that arises sometimes is that regulator hoses, computer hoses, or drysuit inflator hoses can end up tucked in behind your back or under your cumberbund. i put one clip on a d-ring on the lower part of each of my bc straps (two clips total), and clip all of the hoses to the d-rings before i begin donning the bc. inflator hose and computer hose on left, main regulator and safe-second regulator hoses on the right. now all of the hoses are kept in line with the bc straps while i fasten the cumberbund and the...

XS Scuba Mesh Pocket with Zipper Reviews

XS Scuba Mesh Pocket with Zipper Reviews   Mesh Pocket with Zipper

Reviewer: Eric F. on 11/11/2012

Good but... - I like these pockets because they drain (and rinse) excellently and the zipper tab is big enough to grab easily. The material is stiff enough that I can open and close it one-handed. They are just the right size to enclose a pair of EMT shears and a line cutter but still be flat and reasonably low-profile. But they have suicide clips (plastic carabiner thingies) on the outside that must be cut off which is annoying. I cut the plastic loop of the clips, leaving the webbing loops intact, and added a 1" SS split ring on one side which is a useful small clippoff point. I left the third clip on the inside, and added a bungee lanyard loop inside which would have been nice for XS to have have... View Full Review

XS Scuba BC Hanger Reviews

XS Scuba BC Hanger Reviews   BC Hanger

Reviewer: David Smith on 11/26/2008

Great Hanger Sets - my wife and i purchased two of the xs scuba folding wetsuit travel hangers (030893), two of the bc hangers (030879), and two of the xs scuba x5 hangers (031129) (for all the other gear-mask, snorkel, fins, boots and gloves) as a set. these all work great, they hold all the gear compactly (as compactly as a large bc, large fins, and a 7mm full wetsuit can be). we take the bc hanger with us when we travel because it folds up in our gear bag. all the hangers are very sturdy and seem like they will hold up for a long time. with the entire set they really do hold all the wet gear, allowing it to dry and hang properly.

Reviewer: Kevin Johansen on 11/4/2007

So far so good - No issues at all. The hose hook-up is great so you dont have to mess with filling/swishing the BC out a few times when you get home! The octos also can be left off while storing the BC. I have never had any issues w/ Zeagle products yet!

Reviewer: Thomas M. on 4/17/2010

Nice vest - I recently ordered this vest (along with the Junior model for my daughter) for our Royal Caribbean cruise in March 2010. I used this vest for our three snorkeling excursions in Cozumel, Grand Caymens, and in Haiti. Its your basic snorkeling vest - what more can I say - its high quality, and works great. Scuba.com shipped it to me in the time frame as promised. Thanks!
