We all know that a knife is one of the most valuable accessories to a SCUBA diver, but getting one that’s easy to access and utilize is the trick. This mini BC knife from Blue Reef has all the bases covered. Made of corrosion-resistant titanium, the blade features both a serrated edge and a sharp edge, as well as line cutters on each side. The handle sports an opening to string a lanyard through, but the knife with the sheath is compact enough to easily fit in a BC pocket. When you’re done diving, just rinse it in freshwater and it will be ready to go on the next dive, no maintenance needed!
Airline travel with SCUBA equipment is never an easy feat, but for those who are attached to their gear, it simply must be done. Akona addresses the common woes of the traveling diver with their Evolution roller bag. Designed to meet airline luggage requirements, this bag features internal pockets with zippered flaps on the outside for easy entry into those pockets when you need it. The roller bag has 3 handles, each with its own carrying advantages based on the weight of your luggage. Also included is a separate bag for your regulator, with its own removable shoulder strap and an extra security sleeve for your console. If you’re a frequent flyer with your SCUBA gear, this bag is a great way to get it where you’re going!
More and more SCUBA divers are becoming split fin fans for the ease of propulsion underwater with less expended energy, and therefore, less expended air. These Trek split fins from Sherwood SCUBA will deliver exactly that, along with an easy in/out system that includes a quick-release buckle and a finger hole in the oversize fin strap for swift removal. Constructed with a state-of-the-art elastomer, these fins will prove to be more elastic and shock-resistant than your ordinary set of fins.
