Sea and Sea DX2G Sport Package Review

When I first switched to digital a few years back I had waited for SLR cameras to get to a minimum of 5 megapixels. They hit it and I bought a nice expensive SLR camera, wrapped it in an equally expensive housing and off I went underwater to shoot away. Needless to say, it was barely adequate but it did the job. And technology moved ahead at a blindingly rapid pace. Cameras became much cheaper, more versatile, and hosted far more megapixels than I could […]

Product Review: IST S55 Ti Boots

The purchase of dive boots (or “booties” for us old-timers) is all too often something that is not given enough consideration — that is until one of three things happen: you slip and fall unexpectedly on a slick boat deck or rocks in the surf, feet cramp up on a dive or long walk to and from the dive site, or the boots wear out prematurely or simply fall apart unexpectedly. The IST S55 dive boots’ design thwarts these all too frequent problems. Heart of […]

Atomic Cobalt Computer Review

Let me get this out of my system right away. I was first attracted to the Atomic Cobalt dive computer simply because it looked really cool. The bright colorful lights and numbers mesmerized me. Wow! When I first dived with it on a boat recently, other divers onboard were equally enthralled with the display. I am not much one for status symbols but here I had one. Since their introduction last year, the Atomic Cobalt computer has been in incredible demand, limited supply and, unfortunately, […]

Black Skirt Mask vs. Clear Skirt Mask

I have been diving with a clear silicone mask skirt since the mid-80s when my old black neoprene skirt mask finally gave up the ghost. The neoprene had deteriorated to the point of leaving a black ring on my face. Like most of the diving world, I found the silicone skirt comfortable, well sealing and long-lasting. I never looked back. Now you can’t even find a neoprene mask on the market.  But divers began to crave the benefits of a black skirt in the late […]

Designed by Shark Bite Scuba, The Tank Dolly is a tank and gear transport cart that will hold two tanks of any size or fully assembled doubles and enough weight for at least two divers.  The Tank Dolly allows divers to pull, not carry, their tanks, weights and gear quickly and safely to and from the dive site. Carrying heavy tanks and weights to the dive site is no longer necessary with The Tank Dolly. The Tank Dolly comes equipped with either sand or all-terrain […]
