    Whats in your save a dive kit

    Putting a kit together, I have been carrying the one from ST for two years now but I was thinking I may need a few add ons.

    I plan on going with the Atom 2 computer so I will be adding batteries and a SPG. Any odds and ends that have come in handy in a pinch?

    I use a rolling tool chest for my dive gear - so I have a good amount of space for my "save a dive" gear. This is what I always have with me: Battery for computer, tool for opening computer, extra set of fin strap (I use spring straps, so the strap is just in case one of those breaks - or in case someone else needs one), multi-tool, o-rings with brass pick, 2 adjustable wrenches, spare snorkel holder, spare shock cord, zip ties, rubber gloves, athletic/medical tape, bandaids,/bandages rubbing alcohol/vinegar "ear beer", and a list of emergency phone numbers for services around the 2 quarries we commonly dive.
    Also in the chest (if we are doing our usual quarry shore dives) I will usually bring a spare mask, spare fins, plastic copies of dive tables, a couple of spools with clips, a few locking caribiners, and my old hoses that I replaced with miflex.

    Scuba tool, bungee cord, bicycle tire intertube, lots of O rings, cave line, double enders, small lighter and a rabbits foot. (not really)

    Batteries and such go in the camera bag.... now that's a whole different SAD kit.

    I have 2 spare first stages, 2 spare 2nd stages, a full tool box, spare fins, spare mask is in my pocket during the dive. A ton of various o-rings, and various hoses with a spare spg, tie wrap, spool, bolt snaps, spare light batteries, and computer batteries


    Basically I can change out 100% of my regs if need be haha

    Couple of items not listed above in mine:

    • Ty-Raps always make it into my save a dive
    • Grease/Lube
    • I also keep a small no bleach/no scent toothpaste mainly for extra defog and to help someone clean a new mask
    • Laminated Dive Tables and some charts for quick calculations
    • Slate with pencil
    • Innovative Scuba SS wrenches (helps to have two wrenches the other is the ST Tool)
    • Couple empty Ziplock Freezer Bags
    • Small marine first aid kit


    There are some other odds and ends as well but nothing that I use much.

    I have pretty much what has been listed. So, what have I used out of the SAD Kit:

    Mouthpiece, zip ties, and "o" rings.

    If your tools don't include allen wrenches make sure you have some that fit your regs.

    Well, the tools are a separate kit.... But it's all but a full service set.

    What's been use out of mine? SPG Spool, countless zipties, o-rings, mask strap, mask, reg, SPG, spare BCD hose (I didn't put that down, did I?) Bolt snaps, and a few spare HP and LP Port plugs (ditto)
