We love writing about new products almost as much as you love getting new gear, so here’s a great place for all of us to get together and enjoy some killer new gear at the best prices you’ll find online! Whether it’s gear bags, lights, exposure protection, or just the little odds and ends, LeisurePro has you covered. Here are just a few of our selections from their expansive selection of SCUBA gear.
For divers who are just starting to amass their gear, the ProPak from Underwater Kinetics will cover all the bases nicely. This 3-piece set includes UK’s C8 Xenon light as a primary, a popular choice among divers for its clear color-rendering illumination and rugged durability. The lightweight Mini Q40 light makes a great secondary light, and is small enough to attach to your wrist or a mask strap so you can use your hands for other tasks. And finally, you’ll also receive the Remora dive knife and sheath, a dull-pointed serrated-edged blade that can be easily attached to your BCD or weight belt for quick cutting access when you need it. Lanyards are included for each dive light, and the bright yellow coloring of every item will ensure that it stands out against the reef or the dive boat.
SCUBA gear designers are ever at the drawing board, trying new and improved ideas for making dive travel less of a hassle. XS SCUBA has thrown their hat into the ring with the Wheeled Traveler set, which includes separate gear and regulator bags, a sturdy luggage tag, and even a sport bottle to keep you hydrated when you check your bags. To prevent corrosion, XS SCUBA installed stainless steel hardware into the wheel components (which are replaceable!), and points that receive the most wear have all been reinforced with PVC. The padded main compartment and internal tie-down straps protect your gear from shifting during transit, and several external pockets keep handy items within quick reach. For the avid dive traveler, this set is a great investment.
For the diver who likes to keep things simple comes the Pacifica mask from Aqualung. This one-window mask is ideal for underwater photographers, as the all-black silicone skirt keeps external light out of the diver’s field of vision, and the single window framing allows for uninterrupted views of the underwater world. The best feature of all, however, is the integrated purge valve that makes clearing your mask as simple as exhaling through your nose — no pinching, no pressing, no problem. A limited 2-year warranty puts the cherry on top of a sweet deal for the new and seasoned diver alike.
