XS Scuba Stryker Knife
Rating: XS-Scuba-Stryker-Dive-Knife Love this suit. 09/20/2006

Man do I love this suit. When I see all these poor souls trying to get into their wetsuits and mine just slips on (glideskin) and I am ready to go. It is very warm. I have found my self on occasion pulling open the neck to cool off a few times. I would much rather do that then shiver!!! This is a great suit. To bad they are selling out of them.. I would suggest anyone that is in the market for a new suit and they still have a size that fits you to snatch it up. You will not be disapointed.

Akona BC Accessory Kit

Akona BC Accessory Kit
Rating: Akona-BC-Accessory-Kit Good stuff 08/21/2006

I got this when I purchased a gear package for myself and think that everything in the kit is very nice. I had mine for a few weeks then ordered my wife a kit and after 2 dives she lost her knife. I check mine all the time now and have found it loose a few times. The light is a nice backup and the retractors are a nice thign to add to any BC. I think it is a good kit if you purchase I would just keep an eye on your knife...

Akona BC Accessory Kit
Rating: Akona-BC-Accessory-Kit Great BC 08/21/2006

I have put about 6 dives on my new Avid and I have to say that I love it. I am a fairly critical person and will pick things to death, but I LOVE THIS BC. The new releasable weight system on this BC is awesome so easy to use and very secure. I would recommend this BC to anyone considering a Jacket style BC. You will not be disapointed in the BC....
