Innovative Diver Communication Slate
Rating: Innovative-Diver-Communication-Slate Ever try to talk underwater? 07/18/2010

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

Innovative Diver Communication Slate
Rating: Innovative-Diver-Communication-Slate Using as back Up 02/16/2009

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.

Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel Dry Snorkel 02/16/2009

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.

Oceanic Downloader - USB
Rating: Oceanic-Dive-Downloader---USB Pro Plus USB cable 08/12/2007

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.

Oceanic Downloader - USB
Rating: Oceanic-Dive-Downloader---USB Small sausage 08/01/2007

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.

Scuba. Mask Slap Wrap with Buckle Straps
Rating: Scuba.-Slap-Wrap-with-Buckle-Straps Oceanic bag 08/01/2007

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.
