Scuba Gear Reviews by Alex O.


Rating: Hooded is the way to go!

The integrated hood on this polytherm is excellent for moderate temperature diving along with a 3 mil suit. I used it during a week long diving trip where this time of year I usually use a 5 mil suit. Fit great under my 3 mil and was excellent because it does not add any additional bounce. Used it with my 3 mil and it kept me perfectly warm. I am not a big fan of stand-alone hoods, this was so much easier to get on and off.

Ocean Quest 5mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Mens Wetsuit
Rating: Ocean-Quest-5mm-Premium-Super-Stretch-Titanium-Mens-Wetsuit Great wetsuit at a bargain price

I have used the 3mm Ocean Quest for several years but needed a 5mm for some cooler water diving. Used if for 12 dives last week and was very happy with the performance. Stretches great for a 5mm after a few break-in dives and the 5mm was great insulation. Would definitely recommend this wetsuit.

Ocean Quest 5mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Mens Wetsuit
Rating: Ocean-Quest-5mm-Premium-Super-Stretch-Titanium-Mens-Wetsuit Breathes Effortlessly

Breathes great. Have used on 14 dives so far, many over 80 feet included two deep dives in excess of 130 feet. Breathes effortlessly and adjust perfectly to depth. Barely had to tweak the user-adjust setting. Only used in warm Caribbean water so far, so no cold water review experience.

Akona BC Accessory Kit
Rating: Akona-BC-Accessory-Kit Integrates great with BCD - super LED light!

Was extremely impressed with the LED light, used on 4 night dives. Much more light than I expected from such a small light. Battery life impressive. Works great integrated in my Sherwood AVID BCD. Retractor keeps it snug until you need it. Hand grip works great. Gauge retractor also integrated with BCD perfectly and kept my Wisdom 2 nice and snug when navigating tight areas.

Akona BC Accessory Kit
Rating: Akona-BC-Accessory-Kit Stretch, stretch, and more stretch!

fantastic wetsuit, just wish i had purchased the full suit instead of shorty had a run-in with some hydra plants. hyperstretch is definitly better than that old suit you have used for many years.

Sherwood Avid CQR3 BC
Rating: Sherwood-Avid-CQR3-BC Great BCD

Lots of D-rings to hang everything you need and easy to add the Akona BCD kit. Very functional. Used the back weight compartments to distribute my weight (2 lbs each pocket) along with the quick release pockets. Much more balanced in the water, similar to using weight belt with weights spaced apart.

Sherwood Avid CQR3 BC
Rating: Sherwood-Avid-CQR3-BC Wisdom 2 is Excellent!

Great dive computer. Used both air and NITROX settings without any problems. One hitch is using air after NITROX, have to keep on NITROX and set to 21%. Will not allow change back to air setting until computer turns off after 24 hours. Also, default is set to 50% FO2, be sure and check/set prior to each dive. Take the time to review all of the alarm settings, some are set very conservatively. Quick disconnect works great, makes it very easy to remove from BCD/hose.

Neosport by Henderson 2mm Amara Diving Gloves
Rating: Neosport-by-Henderson-2mm-Amara-Diving-Gloves 2mm Amara Gloves 2XLarge

Gloves fit very small, ordered 2XL (based on other reviews) but still snug. Enough dexterity for most underwater tasks.
