Product Overview

So where is your octopus during the dive? Is it trailing along in the water behind you? Can you find it in an emergency? Can you find it at all? XS Scuba has addressed that problem by developing the Alt-Air. The Alt-Air utilizes the same patented quick-release buckles used on today's most modern weight integrated BC's. Snap the Alt-Air in place to the BC and forget about it. If you need it, then it will be there...every time. Even after a giant stride from a 20' (6m) tuna tower...it's still there. Yet, just grab and pull the Alt-Air, that's all that is needed to release the patented X-Lock buckle.

The Alt-Air is a reliable downstream demand valve design and is tuned to resist free flow when entering the water or surface swimming through the surf zones. The regulator is manufactured from impact resistant plastic with chrome plated brass valve components. The Alt-Air has a unique in-line mouthpiece design that provides a direct line between the demand valve mechanism and the mouthpiece for excellent breathing characteristics. The Alt-Air comes in three models' choices. One has a black 36" (91.44cm) low pressure hose, one comes with a yellow 36" (91.44cm), and the third comes with a 36" (91.44cm) MiFlex low pressure hose. The MiFlex hoses feature a patent pending double nylon safety braiding designed to outperform and outlive traditional rubber hoses. MiFlex hoses are 30% lighter than an equivalent length rubber hose and have unmatched flexibility. You can tie a MiFlex hose in a knot and be assured of continuous, uninterrupted airflow. MiFlex Hoses have a minimum burst pressure of 3600 psi (250 bar), more than twice rubber hoses. The Alt-Air comes with a quality silicone mouthpiece and an owner's manual.
