i use this tank strap to hold my niterider battery thereby avoiding another accoutrement on my weight belt. just make sure the cords from the battery to the lights are trim to your bc as you dont want it caught up in coral
the "universal" spring straps do not fit the mares volo/ volo power fins...this tradmark mares spring straps do. they are pricey but well worth the money as you can easily release your fins especially when you are getting out of the water and have to catch the ladder on the boat in current. i have broken many a fingernail with the standard clasps on the volo strap, so id to the new clasps which were difficult to open with gloves...spring straps are the answer
3mm neoprene wetsuit goes on easy with little effort. does not pill when velcro hits it...european fit geared toward tall women...i am 57" and the arms and legs are 3" too long and tight at the bust line but i love MARES quality and workmanship so its a keeper
reasonably priced bulb at scuba.com
finally...gloves that allow your fingers to move and adjust your computer, unhook snaps, adjust rings on your bc etc. and while diving at bonne terre mines in missouri with water 53degrees it really kept my hands warm... i liked where the grips were and they did not fall off like other inferior quality gloves
this works to prevent fogging of your mask underwater but once water enters into the mask the risk of fogging increases...works best when diving and mask never gets filled with water so i guess i am still looking for that truly waterproof defogger.
very easy to put on and offers additional warmth under a thicker wetsuit but used alone offers no additional warmth.
many benefits: 1.lightweight so it wont weigh down your already heavy dive bag and in airline baggage wt restritions every ounce helps 2.swim faster in the water with less effort and hence less cramps/weakness of legs 3.if you have long strides when you swim this is the fins for you compared to split fins where you need shorter strides.(note:split fins heavier!) only disadvantage is some older dive bags may not accomdate the width of these fins
recommend every diver be a proud member of DAN
great cap...would have liked fluoresent colors for identification underwater
this is a great beanie to keep the hair out of your eyes and to keep your head warm even in 87 degree water... would have liked more velcro on the strap and more color options such as yellow for easy identification
know exactly what you want the lanyard to do as there are many options available
does what its ment to do...
i like the tight fit and dual option as to how you want to position the hose
good rash guard to protect you from the sun and help you slip on your wet suit.
heavy duty material with plastic/rust proof zipper which is a plus however would prefer 2 zippers to open outside pockets and major access and prefer additional heavy duty handles on sides to help carry bag
the print is cool but the white showed every fat flaw you want to hide...
cant go wrong with this tshirt.
would have preferred if cotton heavier but the print is cool...
great price...great product... would have been excellent if they placed a plastic/nonrusting zipper...
i like the concept of these fin straps...easy on/off.. unfortunately no matter how i tried to force them on my mares volo power fins they are not compatible...i felt they were a little heavy and i wonder if they add negative buoyancy...it would be helpful if they told you what size fits what shoe size.
BUY THIS...ITS COMPACT AND WATERPROOF SO IT DOESNT GET WATERLOGGED AND YOU CAN USE IT AGAIN...IT HELPED MY BUDDY FIND ME AMONGST 6 OTHER SCUBA DIVERS AT NITE.
practical and it works
i am still trying to find the perfect defogger... this works well and is good for 2dives before my mask fogged up and had to use again...difficulty squeezing some of the goop out...it worked great at the start of the dive but once sea water entered your mask it kept fogging...i used it mostly when my mask was dry and before the dive.
BUY THIS...i like the straps for back pack use and it is very roomy for all the essentials for snorkel or scuba... just one thing that could be improved is that the zipper pull when exposed to salt water corrodes it but zipper still works.
i am attracted to anything scuba and bought 3...they are well made but it didnt help me identify my black scuba bag from everyone elses black scuba bag...it was heavy and the couple of ounces was too much for my already 50# luggage... it had too much rubber.
never thought i would need a coat to go diving in the caribean but this jacket sure came in handy at cozumel in january...while waiting on the boat for everyone to come on board it kept me warm and dry...it is made very well for the price...highly recommend
IM ON MY 3RD WET SUIT AND ITS BEEN DIFFICULT TO FIND A WET SUIT FOR WELL PROPORTIONED WOMEN...HERE IS YOUR ANSWER. IT IS COMFORTABLE TO PUT ON, THERE IS GOOD ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND IS SEAMLESS SO IT DOESNT SCRATCH.
FINALLY AN AFFORDABLE RECHARGEABLE UNDERWATER LIGHT. I WAS QUITE PLEASED AS HOW BRIGHT THE LIGHT IS AND ITS PORTABLE SIZE...NO NEED TO PACK SPARE BATTERIES. ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT IT WORKS ONLY 110V CURRENT AND NOT DUAL 110/220V.
DOES WHAT IT SAYS
I LOVE THIS SKIN. IT IS ONLY 1MM THICK AND ACTS AS A 3MM WET SUIT WHICH ALLOWS LONGER PLAY TIME IN THE WATER...IT WAS PERFECT FOR 83DEGREE CARIBBEAN DIVING. AT THE SURFACE IT DRIED QUICKLY WHICH WAS IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY WHEN IT WAS WINDY. ONLY THING I DIDNT LIKE WAS IT ATTRACTED FLUFF IN THE INNER LINING-BUT THIS COULD EASILY BE REMOVED...OH, AND IT DID NOT PILL.
THIS IS A USEFUL GADGET...BUT YOU NEED TO SECURE IT TO THE TANK SO THE WEIGHT IS EVENLY DISTRIBUTED...I CAN NOW CARRY MY OWN TANK WITHOUT GETTING SHOULDER BURN.
