As a diver, you depend on your scuba equipment. Yet, when it comes to travel, lugging all of your gear around can be a pain, antagonized in recent years by airline weight restrictions and surcharges. With divers working to reduce the amount of weight needed to submerge, scuba gear manufacturers are keeping pace, creating product lines specifically for the traveling diver on vacation. So whether you’re shuffling along an airport concourse with a kit tightly packed for the limited space on a live-aboard or just loading the car for a day at the beach or quarry, we’ve assembled this cross-section of scuba equipment that packs, stows and goes easily — by land or by sea. Check out the gallery above to see the scuba diving gear that will get you there.
