Sealife Sea Dragon 2000 L.E.D. Photo / Video Light
Rating: Sealife-Sea-Dragon-2000-L.E.D.-Photo---Video-Light Very Nice Video Light!! 05/07/2014

light works great, much better videos with light. Adjustable brightness helps in caves, wrecks. The new flex arm system is really nice. Can detach video light from camera if not needed, and makes storage much more compact. Although not recommended, you can use the video light out of water, just use the medium of low power setting. Single battery, with charger included.

Henderson 8/7mm Thermoprene Front Zip Semi Dry Wetsuit with Attached Hood
Rating: Henderson-8-7mm-Thermoprene-Front-Zip-Semi-Dry-Wetsuit-with-Attached-Hood Best Purchase for Cold Water Dives!!!! 05/03/2013

There are better suits, and this one is it!!! Semi Dry is an under statement. Lake Michigan, 45ft, 53 degrees, NO PROBLEM. Its thick, durable and the rubber around the neck, head, feet and hands works very well. You do have limited mobility (as with any suit). Only my hands were cold. Buy the Semi dry gloves. I used regular boots with fins and feet did not get cold. You can enter the suit alone but your buddys help makes it easier, even with front zip. This Suit is best Ive ever worn. Ill never have to rent again.

Oceanic Datamax Pro Plus 2.1 Air / Nitrox Integrated Computer with Compass
Rating: Oceanic-Datamax-Pro-Plus-2.1-Air---Nitrox-Integrated-Computer-with-Compass Very Nice Computer 05/03/2013

First dive with computer was great. So many options! Take the class! There is so much info you should learn prior to use. Pre set everything then dive. Computer logs it all for you. It has options that you can use under water. Just scroll through screens. HUGE screen. Visible in bad conditions, big numbers, flashing red light for quick rise. Easy to read graphs, going to take class again to relearn what I forgot. Compass is installed for easy usage. Quick connect is great for storage. CONS... no light weight hose available without changing quick connect. Temp is logged as coldest only (I think, still learning).

Mares Alt Air Control Integrated Octo
Rating: Mares-Alt-Air-Control-Integrated-Octo Great system 08/31/2012

The Integrated Octo works great. What they dont tell you is it comes with a kit to make it work on most B.C.s. Adapters, ties, and the pins for dump valve. Also the LP Quick connect hose is light weight braided. If you travel, the weight loss (no separate octo and hose)will help. The Reg functions well but not like a high $ octo. Breathing is a little hard, but it WORKS. Large fill and dump buttons, works good with cold water gloves. Old schoolers are used to the separate octo. This one is always right there. Nothing to "find" and unclip, just jam it in your pie hole and breath!

Scuba Deluxe XLarge Dive the World Embroidered Towel
Rating: Scuba-Deluxe-XLarge-Dive-the-World-Embroidered-Towel Big towel 08/09/2012

Nice, soft, nice logo, bigger than regular towels. A little pricey but the "Dive The World" logo is worth it.

Trident Wire Handle Mesh Bag

Great for snorkeling and diving. Have 2 sizes, depending what we are hunting for. Bags have metal handle with metal snap to keep bag closed when you want.
