    For all of my gear tests, I use a "pool" that's free. It's called the Pacific Ocean. :)

    On a side note, I do think that all reg owners should be able to do a comprehensive reg inspection. Purchase...

    Oh, man. This is just wrong. Here in the San Diego area, we've got several excellent choices for fish tacos. South Beach Bar and Grill in Ocean Beach is quite tasty. However, arguably the best Baja...

    I agree with Jack Hammer's response. You can lightly lube the o-rings between the LP hose and the first stage...or not (depending on your preference since they're static o-rings). I lube the o-rings...

    It's not helpful at all to extrapolate drysuit weighting requirements from wetsuit weighting requirements.

    As others have suggested, do a proper weight check. It should take less than 5 minutes to...

    I place lead weight on my tank cambands so that I can decrease the amount that's on my hips. This places me in a more balanced, prone horizontal trim position. It has nothing to do with how the...

    Have you thought about San Diego? October is a great time to be diving in SoCal. Catalina Island is a lot of fun then, too. Fall is my favorite time of the year for diving.

    OK. To recap, you have a SS BP (6 lbs.), a LP72 tank that's -4 lbs. empty, and 18 lbs. on a weight belt. IMO, that's probably too much to have on a weight belt. (At least I wouldn't want to be using...

    I'd recommend using the XS Scuba weight pockets mounted on tank cambands. Yeah, they rely on velcro rather than the Halcyon clip...but they also cost only $10 each. If you use hard weights 2 - 5 lbs....

    You should know that after disconnecting the drysuit inflater hose, water intrusion will occur if the drysuit inflater button is accidentally "activated." That's just how drysuit inflater valves...

    Just wait until AL buys up a company that makes products that you own/use. :D
    Give it time. It will happen.

    FWIW, I agree with your assessment of AL.

    Sea Gypsies? I'll be sure to check my drysuit pockets if I ever end up diving around any of them. :smiley2:

    I'd like to propose another possibility. Perhaps the other guy's eyesight is poor. :D (Don't tell share this explanation with your wife. No good can come of it.)
