The new Explorer sport rebreather is based on a patented design by Kevin Gurr from VR Technology. The unit is neither a fully closed circuit rebreather nor a pure semi-closed system, but an intelligent hybrid that utilizes the best of both worlds. It’s compact, lightweight and extremely easy to use. The Explorer is unique in using a single gas; Nitrox, and is electronically controlled to achieve an optimal balance of PPO2 and dive time.  Plug and Play absorbent cartridges, easy guided setup with “go or no go”, CO2 tracking, and two-hour design duration make this a dream for any recreational diver. The Explorer diver will benefit from breathing warm gas, have lots of bottom time, and since it does not produce any invasive bubbles, see more sea life than ever before. The unit is designed to meet the PADI Type R requirement. 
Bob Hollis, CEO of Hollis Gear and American Underwater Products working with Kevin Gurr from VR has taken the design from the ground up, into a package complete with regulator, cylinder, BCD and onboard decompression computer. The Explorer is ready to dive out of the box and at a highly competitive price given the technology and cost of alternative systems in the market.
