Subgear’s SG500 has been given a new name, but underneath this fresh moniker is the same high performing reg that earned a Best Buy rating in a major ScubaLab regulator review. The SG500 offers a balanced diaphragm first stage with a dry ambient pressure chamber. Two of its four low pressure ports are high flow which deliver 15 percent more gas than conventional LP ports. The second stage comes with a diver adjustable venturi switch and an orthodontic mouthpiece. The SG500 was able to both achieve—and exceed—ScubaLab’s rigorous breathing machine tests. In real-world diving it’s a sweet breather in all diving positions and dry as well. Bottom line: with low work of breathing, a surprising amount of reserve capacity and a solid track record for its in-water work, the SG500 is a proven performer.

Subgear’s new Apnea 1 five-mil is a unique wetsuit designed specifically for free diving. It comes with a nylon-lined interior so it’s comfortable against the skin plus easy to climb in and out of. However, its exterior surface is slick to repel water. The suit features a 360-degree O-ring-style neck seal and stretch panels under the arms and in the lower-back area to enhance range of motion. Even better, the back zipper runs diagonally rather than straight up and down the spine, which makes self-donning easy—those days of needing zip-up help from your dive buddy are gone forever.
Subgear's XP-10 is a single gas dive computer that also offers full watch functions.
This 2010 Testers’ Choice regulator is a powerhouse when it comes to performance. And it’s a great price. The balanced diaphragm first-stage Cayman is SUBGEAR’s top-of-the line regulator, yet it’s less than $500. In ScubaLab’s 2010 testing, the Cayman was the only reg in the under $500 category to reach all depth levels with a score of “above and beyond” in work-of-breathing evaluation. In fact, the more ScubaLab stressed the Cayman, the better it performed. Click here for more info.
