DIVE'S KIT REVIEWS

The staff at DIVE Magazine has collectively made more than 10,000 dives between them, over a combined total of more than 100 years' worth of diving. We've encountered a lot of different gear along the way, and our writers have put some of their expert opinion into these pages.


 

FINS

atomic bladefin small

SThe Atomic Aquatics X1 Bladefin has been around for a while now, but we've not had the opportunity to test a set. Mark 'Crowley' Russell took the fins to Indonesia with him - much, much stiffer than the floppy fins he's been using for so many years. Take a look at the review to find out how he enjoyed the stiff, agile X1.

DIVE COMPUTER

Scubapro G2

Scubapro's Galileo Sol was a game-changer for dive computers with its ability to monitor heart rate and body temperature and factor those in to the decompression profile. With the release of the all new G2, Scubapro have produced a brand new - but very familiar - new computer, the G2, featuring the best of the Galileo, with updated tech and a colour screen. DIVE took one out for a test dive recently, check the review to see what we thought...

DIVE COMPUTER

Suunto EON Core review

Suunto's new colour dive computer is customisable from entry level to technical, with a large screen but a lightweight, compact design. Mark 'Crowley' Russell liked it 60 seconds after pushing its buttons during the product launch. Read his review to see if it pushed his buttons after he took it diving for a week.

CUSTOMISABLE BCD

review hydros pro

Scubapro's award-winning Hydros Pro has been touted as a 'game-changer' for divers. Mark 'Crowley' Russell took one with him on a recent press trip to see if lived up to the hype.

REGULATORS

Aqua Lung Legend

There are Legends, and then there are Leg-Ends. Our Senior Correspondent might be the latter, but his 15 year old, many-thousand dive regulators are most definitely the former, and not just by name. Jacques Cousteau is the forefather of the Aqua Lung LegendCrowley just happened to use them for more than 2,000 dives as an instructor and guide in the Red Sea and Indonesia.

We think he'd like to be a legend, but his regulators really are exactly that.

FINS

Mares Volo Power

Some dive equipment becomes more like family than just gear for use underwater. Mark 'Crowley' Russell loved these fins so much that after his 2,000+ dive with a pair of Mares Volo Power fins he finally moved them on to the great dive site in the sky - he then went straight out and bought another set....

DIVE COMPUTER

Suunto Zoop Novo

Dive computers used to be simple, expensive and exclusive. Now there's so many out there it's difficult to know where to start looking, especially if you're new to the market. Fortunately, Magnus Larsson, long-term instructor and photographer at Scuba Fish Koh Lanta, is here to help us out with his in-depth review of the Suunto Zoop Novo....

TRAVEL BCD

Scubapro Go

Things to do, places to go, people to see, dive sites to dive - and the Scubapro Go is only 2.5kg in weight so you can bring it with you to do all of those things. It's very light, as Crowley explains....
