Fins – freediving and scuba
Mask and snorkel
Love this mask. There is a huge difference between a good and a bad snorkel. This is a very good snorkel.
Really good BCD. I like jacket-style BCDs, as during both research activities and photography I’m often hanging vertical in the water. I use the pockets a lot. The integrated weight system is much more comfortable than a belt, and these weight pockets clip in securely. I like the lack of a metal back plate too, the BCD kind of wraps around and gives you a lovely cuddle. It’s like you’re little spoon all dive.
Hopefully you won’t need it… but if you’re diving in remote areas, these things are golden. Good value too, I think.
