SCUBAPRO's EverFlex 5/4 wetsuit is specially molded with pre-formed arms and legs for a form-hugging and flexible fit. High-stretch neoprene is used in two thicknesses to maximize both core warmth and mobility in a suit ideal for a wide range of temperatures.
Cressi’s Air Travel has the lift capacity and rugged materials of a standard BC and the compact, fold-up design of a specialty travel model. Available in silver and blue mens versions as well as pink for ladies, the result is an easy-to-pack BC that stands up to year-round use and is excellent for warm and temperate water.
The Transpac XT harness from Dive Rite was inspired by packs used for mountaineering. The contoured harness fits securely and allows excellent mobility. Thickly padded shoulder straps and a lumbar support distribute weight across the hips and back. This reduces joint and muscle strain while moving around the boat or walking along shore. A crotch strap is also included to prevent the BC from shifting while in the water. Optional weight pockets can be mounted vertically or horizontally and hold up to 16 lbs.
Stahlsac’s new HD Caicos Cargo Pack has a tough, rugged tarpaulin exterior and a reinforced bottom that make it a “go anywhere” bag capable of handling even the roughest conditions and environments.
