Most regulator bags are square, leaving unused space when you coil up your hoses. This one takes a little less space and can fit in the duffle back more easily. I use regulator bags for toting other things, too, so it is always nice to have an extra.
I got this to go with the Atomic ST1 regulator. It is nice and light, and it breathes easily.
After 8 years of using my original regulator, I decided to splurge and upgrade. My wife had been loving her Scuba Pro regulator, saying she liked it more than her original (which was the same as mine). After learning that this regulator is designed by the guy who used to design Scuba Pros, then noting the similarities, I thought I would give it a whirl. I love it so far.
I recommend spring fin straps to all my students. It is simply so much easier and quicker to put the fins on and off, and they are sturdier than regular rubberizes straps.
Some people dont like finger spools, but they arent that hard to use once you get the knack, and they are much less bulky. The clip holds up well even after being in salt water.
I have several SMBs, and this is the best. When we were in rough seas, this one stood out better than the others that people were using, mainly because it is BIG. It is a little less handy to carry with you because of the size, but worth it when you need it.
Good for checking your first stage
Good quality, accurate gauge. Nice for checking tank pressures without having to hook up your reg and SPG.
Not only does this wetsuit look great, it was plenty warm while diving in 61 degree water. It fits well and seems very durable. The trilastic material makes it easier to get into despite the thickness.
