Rating: Oceanic-Pocket-Semi-Dry-Snorkel Pocket snorkel 02/13/2007

Folds up small, attaches very easily. I would reccoment it for anyone who hates having a snorkel constently attached.

Scuba Stainless Steel Safety Shears
Rating: Scuba-Stainless-Steel-Safety-Shears Shears 01/09/2007

Very strong shears, definately worth carrying incase of entanglment. The holster is decent except the belt loop is very wide, so it tends to fall off when my BC belt it done. I think this can be rectified with a bit of stitching or a zip tie.

Scuba Stainless Steel Safety Shears
Rating: Scuba-Stainless-Steel-Safety-Shears Dive Rite thigh pocket 01/09/2007

Very well made and roomy, if a little expensive. Two compartments seperated by a mesh panel and an integral clip for attaching things to. Excellent to get some of the junk off your BC and out of the way.

IST Slate with Clip
Rating: IST-Slate-with-Clip Mares avanti quattro 10/18/2006

nice fins, with good propulsion. the buckle feels very odd at first, but it is much easier to opperate in the water than when dry. i like the fact you cant your fin strap even if you open both buckles. the buckle mechanism is quite snappy so i wonder if they will wear out quicker than regular ones.. plus watch your fingers when you open them or you might get a nip!

Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel Oceanic ultradry 09/19/2006

Good dry snorkel, but remember if you take the mouthpiece out of your mouth e.g. to scuba, water will ingress through the mouthpiece so it still needs clearing. Also, if the tube gets tipped while breathing through it the valve can slide shut cutting off air. It does seal well when you dive down though, so if you dont mind it being quite large its a great bit of kit.

Scuba Mask Strap Wrapper
Rating: Scuba-Mask-Strap-Wrapper Strap wrapper 09/19/2006

These are great- not only do you get the mask on and off easier without hair getting tangled, having different coloured sides means its easier to put it back on underwater when doing mask removal and replacement exercises.

H2O Alpha 2 Mask
Rating: H2O-Alpha-2-Mask H2O Alpha purge 09/19/2006

Good basic mask. The purge valve takes some getting used to though- it leaks on the surface so is not good when snorkeling and leaks at depth unless you remember to equalise frequently.. So think carefully about a continually cold wet nose is worth benefit of easier mask clearing!
