Rating: Beyond Cool! 04/28/2010

These boots are not only stylish (and draw lots of second looks from bystanders!), but they are very functional and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Oceanic Ion 2 Purge Mask
Rating: Oceanic-Ion-2-Purge-Mask Ahh ... Modern Inventions 04/28/2010

The Microfiber Towel is one of the great contributions to diving comfort! It really does soak up an incredible amount of water, and dries incredibly fast. Compact and lightweight ... essentials for travel. Ill be buying more!

Innovative T2 Toolpack
Rating: Innovative-T2-Scuba-Toolpack Good Value 04/28/2010

A good, middle of the road mask. Not a lot of bells and whistles (re design, construction materials, etc.) but gets the job done.

Purchased these for my wife - a novice snorkeler. She found them comfortable and compact ... two qualities that she holds in high esteem. Nice looking, too!

Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel Fantastic Wet Suit! 04/28/2010

This wetsuit provides exceptional comfort, ease of mobility, and warmth (in no small part due to the excellent seals). I wish I had bought this sooner!

XS Scuba BC Hanger
Rating: XS-Scuba-BC-Hanger Tradeoff: Sturdiness and Bulkiness 04/28/2010

This hanger provides excellent support, and has two supplementary hooks that are ideal for hanging a reg or other equipment. At the same time, it is somewhat bulky, even when folded.

XS Scuba Folding Wetsuit Hanger
Rating: XS-Scuba-Folding-Wetsuit-Hanger Tradeoff: Sturdiness and Bulkiness 04/28/2010

This hanger is fantastic in that it provides excellent support and, indeed, is foldable so it offers advantages for travel. However, it is also somewhat bulky (understandably required to provide top notch support), even when folded.
