Rating: very warm! tight zipper 09/01/2009

overall a great wetsuit: fairly easy to put on and compared to a two-piece, you can a couple of pounds of lead. also very warm, used it at catalina for a 3 dive trip and even with water of 52f at the bottom, stayed reasonably warm the whole time. main downside id say is the zipper is extremely tight and impossible to close by yourself, hopefully itll loosen up a bit overtime.

Rating: Great so far, expensive batteries 09/01/2009

Overall very happy with the product, fairly bright for something so small and also like having the option to mount it either on your head or hand. The main downside and why I gave it a 4 is the battery life is very poor, used it for maybe 3-4 night dives and already dead compared to my UK SL4 which Ive had on 25 night dives and still going strong. Also, the worst part of it is that it uses very expensive lithium batteries, which keeps the size down but they are 7-10 bucks for a pair every time you replace them. Now I use it more as a backup light, since I can just keep it on my arm and not have to fumble for my backup light if needed.

XS Scuba Stainless D-Ring Weight Keeper
Rating: XS-Scuba-Stainless-D-Ring-Weight-Keeper Nice product and good value 04/11/2009

Not much to say, good price compared to other identical products and seem to be very well made and tough. Should last forever for most people and nice to have extra place to put your equipment.

XS Scuba Stainless D-Ring Weight Keeper
Rating: XS-Scuba-Stainless-D-Ring-Weight-Keeper awesome light, great bang for the buck 04/11/2009

small light but much brighter than i wouldve thoughtu could easily use it as your main light during a night dive or a great backup light.

XS Scuba Stainless D-Ring Weight Keeper
Rating: XS-Scuba-Stainless-D-Ring-Weight-Keeper Okay, not great 04/11/2009

Tried it out on a night dive for the first time and have too say wasnt too happy with it. It holds the light fine but makes putting the mask on tightly lot harder since the weight of the light drags down on one side and makes it hard to pull on the mask buckle to tighten. Plus when I was underwater in the dark at night, the light wasnt really pointing where I wanted it and couldnt take the light off and had to surface where I gave up and ended up using the light regularly without the mask strap. might work with some more practice or work but didnt like how it felt on the mask and now planning to try a headlamp instead.
