Current Diving Gear

Just in case anyone has some vague interest in the equipment I use I figured I’d list it down. All of my diving is still on a single with a pony for backup, I’m getting near to needing a twinset, but it’ll all happen in good time :D I also have DIR leanings and am going diving with some DIR guys in August so will see what I think of it all then.

Drysuit is a azdry suit, with big pocket on left thigh and slate pocket on right thigh. In the right pocket I have a slate with a dive watch attached. Left thigh pocket contains a spool (30metres of line), yellow backup dsmb, and spare mask.

I dive a frog indigo wing which is a single wing, with steel backplate, single tank adaptor (STA), and a single piece harness (a la DIR style). Right hand side of the waist belt I have (in order working away from backplate) the battery of my JMD umbilical torch, Bowstone Tool Pouch, and Beaver Dive Knife. In the Bowston pouch I keep a Beaver Osprey Wreck Reel with 80metres of line (yes it’s overkill), and a standard red dsmb both piston clipped to a loop of bungee inside.

As regs I have a set of Aqua Lung Legend LX’s, the primary on a long hose and the octopus bungeed under my chin. On this I have a Suunto pressure gauge which is piston clipped to left hip d-ring. On left chest d-ring I have a backup torch clipped and held to the harness, it’s nothing special I can’t remember the name!

For slightly deeper dives I have a 3ltr pony side slung on the left with a Dacor Eagle Octopus Reg.

    Maybe you should change the page subject title Evilprofessor.co.uk » Current Diving Gear to more generic for your content you make. I liked the post nevertheless.
