Scuba Gear Reviews by Mark Thorn


Rating: XS Scuba Boots 08/22/2009

Purchased these for a recent trip to Panama. Cant say enough good things about these boots and XS Scuba gear in general. Found these boots to fit all my needs. I have 11.5 shoe size so ended up going with the 12...Perfect fit for me. Had tropical boots before that are flimsy and slosh about on your feet. Not the case with these. Easy on and off and also made my fins fit that much nicer. These have a soft sole so bear that in mind if you might be walking on some sharp stuff. I mainly used mine once I was on the boat and took them off after the last dive and changed into a pair of flip flops. These will compact down nicely too, not taking up much space in your dive bag. Lightweight is another big advantage. Good all around tropical boot. Would recommend. Cheers

XS Scuba Standard Mesh Backpack Bag
Rating: XS-Scuba-Standard-Mesh-Backpack-Bag Outstanding 08/22/2009

Purchased this bag for a recent trip to Panama. This was perfect as a boat bag. Loaded up my gear at resort and carried easily to dive boat. Lots of room in this bag and they didnt skimp on the quality either. Biggest plus for me were the backpack straps. Found them very comfortable on shoulders when bag was loaded and easily adjustable too. Bag is well priced, worth the money I think. Good quality from XS scuba. What also made the deal sweet was the free shipping from Scuba.com. Class outfit. No worries...Cheers

Oceanic Ultra Clear Pioneer Mask
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Clear-Pioneer-Mask The Best!!!! 08/10/2009

Recently purchased this mask for a trip to Panama. I can honestly say this was worth every cent I paid. The fit was perfect for my face. I thought they were lightweight and less cumbersome than any other mask I have owned. I know they are the "latest and greatest" right now, but do yourself a huge favor and fork over the money for these. You will not be disappointed with their performance. Suggestion.....Use the 500psi mask scrub and defog, works fantastic!!!!!!! Safe diving to all....Cheers
