Recently I tried to tell my dive buddy two words underwater. I even took out my reg and yelled as I expelled air and words. Hand signals worked better so I got the communication slate. It is so easy to use and pointing to the words and using in the pre-dive planning is great. I consider it a simple tool to make dives safer and more enjoyable. Puget Sound Diver
My wife and I dive in dark and low vis conditions. She does photography and has her hands full working the camera. Her computer is hard for me to read and therefore I have put the Mares Mini Pressure Gauge on her second High Pressure port and strapped it on to the tank. Now I can read her tank pressure anytime, while staying out of her way.
We dive where there can be big waves and long surface swims. After I got my dry snorkel, my wife wanted one. Her old snorkel was a semi-dry. I used it and drank some water, I agree with her the dry is the way to go.
I really like the ability to down load my dive profiles. What I have learned is that my Oceanic computer seems to give more information when downloaded than I can get when I use the screen log review. That is disturbing the computer shows such little information without downloading the dive. I am glad I am downloading the dives but if this computer breaks then I will look for with all the information I desire while still on the dive boat away from my PC. The cable works and the software is availble from the Oceanic website.
A bit smaller than most but I think that is a plus. Quick and easy to get out and small enough that I take it on all dives. My wife has not deployed her large one since we got this small one.
My wife loves it for her long hair. She also likes the color and fish on the strap.
I picked this bag because I have long fins. It holds all my cold water gear great making the trip on the dock to the dive boat take only one trip.
