Got this on sale. Worth every penny. Will be in my Dive Bag from now on... D.Attisani
Family of 5 divers uses these religiously. Having lost knives where-ever,,,, dad no longer worries about the $7.- replacement. Good enought for a BC mount almost anywhere. DJA
Love ankle weights. I have 4 pairs for the family and got these bright yellow ones so they could see dad amongst the other human seals. Perfect for my OW classes where students have a hard time telling whos who. Bright yellow shines thru even in the lowest vis situations. DJA
Definately preferred to mounted boots that look like fishermans waiders. Over the 4-5mil neoprene booties these rock boots are a perfect fit. Excellent ankle support with full finning freedom. My Bio Fins fit perfectly without having to move up 2 sizes, although they are a bit large over my full sole 7mm w/s boots. Quick on Quick off.
Very warm and minimally bulky. Perfect for California . Im toasty from 45 - 60 degrees without exception. Also doubles as a nice nightgarmet if you forget your sleeping bag on cold liveaboards :) Only caution would be lobster enthusiasts who would likely be better off using a Neoprene suit instead of shell & undergarm....
Perfect Fit. Great Value. If you want a suit for varing conditins from very cold to moderatly cold, a shell like this one is the way to go. From fleece ski cloths to the Bare undergarmets, you can change by daily needs. Always toasty warm after a dive. Ive also used the undergarm as a nitegarmet on a cold liveaboard with too few blankets!! I also like teh 4mm neoprene boots instead of the hard boots mounted on many other models. Very comfortable with rock boots.
ive got several reg bags for 4 divers. this bag is my favorite good construction. circular shape keeps houses naturally turned. harder outcasing is good to protect contents..... cant beat it for $15
Well, I love the Tusa FF-9 Split full heel fins. Tried these at $19 with high hopes. Hopes dashed. FF-9s much better. Vectors were weak at the ankel-foot bond bending too much and losing power unnecessarily. Oceanic needs to reinforce the blade to make a basically good design a great design. Ill be lending this pair to friends... Keeping the Tusas for me....
Only issue was do I buy the small bottle or the 1 gallon version...
Bug diving in September killed my first Lens protector. Simple fix with a second. Hate to think what my nemo would have looked like without it!!.. Highly recommended.
Good value for the price. I purchases dor non-diving applications too..
i purchased this suit for my 12yr old daughter as an alternative to the henderson hyperstretch ti that i use (shes growing too fast!... for a $350 suit). she loves it very warm in no.cal cool waters. suit is not 100% stretch neoprene, but pannels of stretch make the suit both easy to put on/off and snug. well worth every penney. i am seriously considering this suit as a replacement for my henderson. sizing is a little different for mens than my current suit and so, im not risking the perfect fit i have just yet. recommend akona suit very highly!!
I bought these gloves with the expectation of a good fit. Measured my hand, etc. Received "Medium" and fit like a womans small. Nice gloves for the price, but Id adise you buy at least 1 size larger then normal. I returned for credit.
i returned these gloves for credit. the fit was extremely tight. my hand measures a small to medium in the other 3 gloves i own. i could not get my hand comfortably into the xs brand "mens medium" recommend you try a size up first. but they fit my wife okay... :)
Received original with label indicating 3 1/4" gauge for California hunting. Actual Plastic gauge inside was marked 3". Returned as mis-labeled. Replacement unit was exactly the same (wrong again). I just cut it to fit this time. Scuba.com DID notify me by, email, phone etc advising of the problem and replacing the two erroneous gauges with a metal trident gauge. Good execution by Scuba.com! Apparently the whole inventory was wrong....
Good value boot for the aspiring diver. Couldnt find much else to fit a size 3. Only wish there were thicker offerings - 7mm would have been nice.
Ive used this bag on several live-a-board trips now. cant beat it for the buck spacious, durable and well configured. 2 sets of fin pouches fit the biggest fins along with a mask and snorkel.
