Best hanger Ive seen. Holds boots ,fins, gloves,mask,snorkel in perfect position to dry out. Happy I bought this. The competitor didnt hold the fins ,mask or snorkel.

Mares Plana Avanti X3 Fins
Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins mares plana avanti X3 fins 07/24/2008

good fin and excellent buckle system. I personally dont like big paddle fins and bought these as backups. I usually use Force fins and these feel a lot different. Those folks who like a big paddle fin will love these. I compared them to the superchannel Mares fins and find these stiffer. I am considering cutting out the central rubber gusset to make a pair of "splits " out of them. As they are now , they are too stiff and "draggy" in the water for my current preference.

Innovative Locking Strap Mount Retractor
Rating: Innovative-Locking-Strap-Mount-Dive-Retractor locking retractor- strap mount 07/24/2008

I like this product so far. Havent used underwatrer yet but it has the power to handle console out of water. Best feature is it is strap mounted. That way, you dont have something dangling with another thing dangling off of it. The purpose of a retractor is to control attached items. The strap mount controls the retractor well.

Innovative Locking Strap Mount Retractor
Rating: Innovative-Locking-Strap-Mount-Dive-Retractor mares trilastic boots 07/24/2008

excellent boots. If you have wide feet, order larger size. I have size 11 feet, the 12 fit well. stiffer on bottom makes it feel more like a shoe. I have only tried in pool but think they will be great. The neoprene is really stretchy and comfortable.
