Pinnacle 6mm Apex Medium Sole Titanium Zipper Dive Boots
Rating: Pinnacle-6mm-Apex-Medium-Sole-Titanium-Zipper-Dive-Boots Awesome boot but takes a longer time to dry 11/26/2007

The boot fits great, it does a great job at keeping feet warm. The only thing is that it takes 2 days to fully dry the boot. Ive heard this about Pinnacle products in general, so it didnt hinder my choice.

Pinnacle 6mm Apex Medium Sole Titanium Zipper Dive Boots
Rating: Pinnacle-6mm-Apex-Medium-Sole-Titanium-Zipper-Dive-Boots great for slimmer legs 11/26/2007

If you have larger calves, then this boot wont work as well. The boot has a rigid structure that wont accommodate a larger leg, thus leaving the zipper about a 1/3 unzipped. Other than that, my gf likes the shoe and the warmth, it just doesnt fully fit. (69F and there wasnt any complaints about cold feet)

Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel almost perfect... 11/26/2007

It works great for the most part, but I did get water in mine and even sucked some sea water in (during rough conditions). But for 99% of the time, it worked as advertised. I dp think there are slightly cheaper ones that would probably perform the same.

Oceanic Shadow Frameless Mask
Rating: Oceanic-Shadow-Frameless-Mask it gets better with use 11/26/2007

During the first 3 times I used it (snorkeling), there was significant leakage, and no amount of tightening or re-positioning made it any better. It tended to leak through the seam where the rubber is right under the nose. My advice is not to get this mask unless you have a good amount of time to break it in. During my open water training, I noticed it leaking much less, and by the time I completed open water, it almost never leaked. I bought this for myself and the TUSA visualator for my gf, and she has never had a problem, so for someone who needs immediate results, Id recommend the TUSA instead.
