XS Scuba Beefy Polyolefin Hot Dive Socks
Rating: XS-Scuba-Beefy-Polyolefin-Hot-Dive-Socks Good for donning and doffing my wetsuit 10/10/2007

Easy to slide on/off my wetsuit. it does provide a bit of warmth wearing under the boots. The opening area is a bit tight.

Henderson Polyolefin Hot Dive Socks
Rating: Henderson-Polyolefin-Hot-Dive-Socks Not really stretchable 10/10/2007

Managed to put it on, but after removing it, its stretched a bit, expecially at the opening area. Basically, its nice, but i dont like the "after wear" shape. it doesnt shrink back to original shape at the open area.

Sherwood Supertilt 2 Compass Module
Rating: Sherwood-Supertilt-2-Dive-Compass-Module Great compass 04/12/2007

I prefer a compass on the console, rather than mounting one on the wrist. It provides you a better angle for you to look at your console compass than the wrist compass.

Underwater Kinetics Blue Tang Hydralloy Knife

Underwater Kinetics Blue Tang Hydralloy Knife
Rating: Underwater-Kinetics-Blue-Tang-Hydralloy-Knife Its not really small... 02/24/2007

I have no idea how big its gonna be. When it reached me, i didnt expect it to be that big. I need a smaller retractor. But other than that, it serves its purpose. You pull it, it retracts by itself. Good to mount it on your gauge. I dont recommend it to be used with your camera or light. Because when you pull it out, it has a force to retract it. so, youll be tired in no time if you are using your light during night time or using your camera to shoot something. Those coil-lanyard is recommended.

a very bright light. If you are not really into Night/Wreck/Cave diving, this piece of torch can act as your primary torch. It serves you well, for recreational purpose.

Underwater Kinetics Blue Tang Hydralloy Knife
Rating: Underwater-Kinetics-Blue-Tang-Hydralloy-Knife A High Quality Knife... 02/24/2007

A high-quality dive knife can also serve as a tool–stepping in as a light pry bar, a screwdriver, a hammer, and even an equipment modifier, if needed. In short, every diver should have a dive knife and the Blue Tang from Underwater Kinetics is one of my top choices. I have big calves, but im not very fat. The depth compensating leg straps that come with it, is a bit short. When i mount it onto my calf, i have to adjust it to the max. Shorter by 1 more inch, the strap will not be able to fit me. so, i wonder will it fit those really big size diver out there...

With all the questions and answers available in this book, a diver will be able to refresh his mind in no time. You dont have to read through your open water textbook again. Just flip through this "thin" book, and answer all the questions, youll gain back your knowledge.

Scuba Stainless Steel Safety Shears
Rating: Scuba-Stainless-Steel-Safety-Shears Wonderful Underwater Shear 02/23/2007

Its good to have at least 2 knives/shears with you when youre in the water, as a backup. Handle is big enough although you are using gloves. I give it 4 star because the image on the website didnt show the exact size of the shear. so, for people that havent seen a shear before, will not have any idea how big it could be.
