Rating: Henderson 5mm XSPAN Super Stretch Wetsuit 12/21/2011

My girlfriend and I both bought one of these for our trip to Grand Cayman in early December 2011. I have the 3mm version of this suit and have done about 40 dives in it and have been very happy with it. I decided to buy the 5mm version for slightly colder, winter diving. Ive done 17 dives in it so far and the suit is holding up very well. It feels slightly tighter than the 3mm version but I think thats just the extra thickness of the 5mm. I recommend this suit...great value for the price.

Rating: Henderson 3/2mm XSPAN Super Stretch Jumpsuit 06/08/2010

This is a very comfortable and flexible suit. Not hard to get on/off and has held up very well on the 16 dives Ive done in it thus far.

TUSA TUL-300 L.E.D. Light
Rating: TUSA-TUL-300-L.E.D.-Light TUSA L.E.D. Dive Light: 05/09/2010

This is the first dive light Ive ever owned and I bought it specifically for its bright LED beam despite its small size. I had seen another diver using a light on a day dive and realized that it really comes in handy when youre diving on a wreck and want to be able to see inside of a cabin or hold. Its also great for illuminating underneath a rock or coral head. I ended up using this light on every dive I did on my last trip. The TUSA is a great light and small enough to easily fit right inside the pocket of my BCD. The switch is easy to slide on/off. If you dont own a dive light you should get one and this is a great choice!

Mares Avanti Super Channel Adjustable Strap Fins
Rating: Mares-Avanti-Super-Channel-Adjustable-Strap-Fins Mares Avanti Super Channel Adjustable Strap Fins 05/09/2010

I really like these fins. I had been diving with the Sherwood split fins for a few years which I felt were not giving me very good thrust. I found about these fins via a November 2007 review of 18 new fins which ranked them very highly. These fins are comfortable, very light and provide excellent thrust whether using a standard stroke or a frog stroke. They also have a very ingenious strap system which enables you to push a button on either side of the strap to "open" the strap and get your foot in or out with ease. Great fins at a very reasonable price!

Mares Avanti Super Channel Adjustable Strap Fins
Rating: Mares-Avanti-Super-Channel-Adjustable-Strap-Fins Great dive computer for beginners 02/12/2010

This is my first dive computer and I wanted something very simple. Its a very easy computer to use. A single button scrolls through all of the screens. The large screen makes it easy to see the display and all of the pertinent information can be seen on one screen. You can change the battery yourself although I havent tried yet.
