When things go wrong at depth, the last thing you or your buddy wants to do, in an emergency, is go from some nice primary regulator to some cheap and crappy octo you have to suck the air out of. Your regulators are your life support underwater. The extra cash is worth the extra peace of mind. Who knows, when your dive buddy sees you have an ST1 as your octo, he/she just might signal out of air just to try it out!
You can read about the engineering and innovation that went into Atomics products all day long. Once you get the ST1 in your hands and use it for the first time, you feel like your investment was worth every penny. Its nice to make a deep dive and not think about breathing or the comfort of your regulator. After you try the comfort swivel once, youll never go back! When you get below 100 feet, you might flood your mask by smiling after you realize how easily youre breathing. When you finally come out of the salt bath and rinse off your gear, youll appreciate the sold stainless steel first stage and all of the titanium in the ST1 second stage. When youre underwater, youre on life support. Having said that (if your like me) you want the BEST! If youre considering the T2X, you can save money with the ST1 and still have that same peace of mind. Either way, you cant go wrong!
This bag has more than enough room for one regulator set. I had enough room to store two ST1 regs, with ST1 octos, 2 wireless pressure transmitters, and backup analog pressure gauges.
I purchased a Pinnacle 7mm Merino Elastiprene suit for my girlfriend and I. We just used these suits for the first time at a Quarry. Outdoor temp was 90F, surface temp was 77F, at 48ft the temp was 55F. We were never cold in these suits. In fact, I was overly warm while swimming around in the 55F water! Next time, I might dive in my 3mm Merino Elastiprene suit, or maybe try the 7mm down at the 100-foot quarry bottom, where the temp is 45F.
