Ocean Quest Ez Spring Fin Straps
Rating: Ocean-Quest-Ez-Spring-Fin-Straps Works Great 06/06/2012

I have used numerous types of fines over the last 20 + years of diving and these work as good or better then all the others. I bought these because they are 1/2 the weight of my split fins and wanted to reduce my travel weight. They are especially good at maneuverability. The foot pocket is really big so if you are close in size you might want to go down. I wear an 11 in street shoes and when diving I use a hard soled bootie still had room to spare. The spring strap is standard equipment on all my fins. I think they are a must have. Last forever and nothing to loose in middle of a dive. They are just a little harder getting off over mt hard sole booties but well worth it.

Zeagle Pony Gauge
Rating: Zeagle-Pony-Dive-Gauge Tank Cuff 12/20/2008

Secure hold on tank but I have not really figured out how it is suppose to be attached to my equipment. No real useful accessories such as straps, hooks, bands or anything else included to assist with attaching to a BC or tank. The cuff does seem rugged.

XS Scuba Cordura Weight Belt
Rating: XS-Scuba-Cordura-Diving-Weight-Belt XS Scuba Belt 12/20/2008

I bought this for use when travelling with out weights. Excellent for this use. Makes weight use and return a breeze. Still like a more secure system for holding the weights if I am using my own weights. You could lose a weight if you handle the belt incorrectly.

Sherwood Silhouette BC
Rating: Sherwood-Silhouette-BC Sherwood BC 12/20/2008

I like simple equipment for diving. Had been diving with the same simple BC for about 15 years and it finially gave up. When I looked for a replacement I wanted a simple replacement. Sherwood seemed to have the BC I was looking for. This BC has good pockets with one that is secured with velcro that allows for safety items to be stored. I would like to see a d-ring added to this pocked and velcro on the other side but this is my only complaint. The BC is built very rugged, is comfortable, hasd plenty of attachment points for non-techical diving and the tank stays put. I have used it on 13 dives in Cozumel and the only issue I have noticed when compared to my old BC is it causes me to use 2 - 3 more pounds of weight on my belt.
