this is the first regulator i have owned. i have tried many regulators both from other people and rentals as well. this regulator feels very solid and breathes easily. i live in santa barbara california, and here most of the retail shops sell aqualung titan regs, or atomic regulators. i absolutely dislike aqualung regulators which ive used many times on rental. they have a cheap toy feel to them. the atomic regulators usualy have a kind of ball socket between the second stage hose and second stage regulator which makes it more comfortable in your mouth. they are highly rated, however, they breath the same as an xs tri-metal and have a less comfortable mouthpiece and cost almost 3x more money. my only complaint on the xs scuba trimetal regulator is that the adjustment knob is strange, and has been unpredictaby taken in sand on some of my beach dives. this regulator definetly is well built and performs like many high priced regulators.
I originally bought this wetsuit because of its high rating for value and function. I am in commercial diving school and I purchased this wetsuit at the beginning of my classes. It has stood up through training and some very abrasive work. It fit great and has always kept me comfortably warm. I will definetly buy another of these when my current wetsuit is worn out.
