Scuba Gear Reviews by Lauren F.

Rating: 5/3mm Trilastic Hooded Vest Amazing cold water suit 8/18/2009

This is an amazing wetsuit, especially for the price on The sizing was great, I had tried on a Mares 7/5mm and the arms were too long and there was space around the top of the chest and neck but when I put on the Pinnacle it felt like a custom. I followed the womens sizing charts, fell into the L category and I was really happy. The secondary seals around the wrists and ankles are great, especially the wrists where there is no zip. The batwing gusset and roll down neck do a great job of keeping that chilly water out. I love the marino wool lining, I have long been a fan of marino wool for cold weather tops etc for skiing/snowboarding/hiking and having the lining in this is a huge plus over other synthetically lined suits. Get the Pinnacle, you wont be disappointed.

Innovative Neoprene Knife Sheath
Rating: Innovative-Neoprene-Knife-Sheath Comfy, comfy 8/3/2009

I think this is the best way to carry a knife, I had been looking for knife straps and I prefer not to carry a knife in my BC and I wasnt too keen on getting rubber straps. This was exactly was I was looking for, the price is good and it fits with the existing knife I have. You can also choose to wear it on your lower leg/calf or above the knee on the thigh depending on your preference. The only caution I would make is if you are pretty small, the velcro straps might need to be cut a bt if you want to wear it on your calf

Scuba BC Knife
Rating: Scuba-BC-Dive-Knife Fits the bill 8/3/2009

I was looking for a small inexpensive knife to take on dives with me and this fits the bill. It comes in its own sheath and you have the option of straight or serrated blade. Fits into knife holders well or you can carry it in a BC pocket. I havent used it underwater, nor can I comment yet on the longevity/durability but Im hoping it stands up to my initial impressions

Scuba BC Knife
Rating: Scuba-BC-Dive-Knife Awesome hood!! 8/3/2009

This hood is great, it fits perfectly, like it was fashioned from a mould of my head. The seals around the face work fantastic and are comfortable and the price is better than a lot of lower quality hoods

Scuba BC Knife
Rating: Scuba-BC-Dive-Knife Great vest for the money 8/3/2009

Mares vest is a great buy for the money. As with most Mares items, you get the quality you expect and the sizing in the chest I feel is true to size. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because I felt like the hood part around the neck is a little loose while the face is a bit tight but still give it thumbs up.
