Our new shipment of dry suits are in with more improvements. Suits have the big pockets on both sides with a line leash inside for stowing gear. The new boots are an incredible fit, a combination of neoprene and rubber coated neoprene, they are warm and form fitting so you don’t need to go up a fin size for a good fit. The outer seam tape is gone and the cut of the suit has changed slightly for a better fit. I have put a number of dives on mine over the past few weeks and the changes are noticeable.
Some of you may be familiar with my TransPac promise. “If you think there is a dive that you cannot do on the TransPac contact me directly. I will either tell you or come show you how it can be done.”
My staff brought this video to my attention, proving once again, that the TransPac really can DO any dive. Enjoy. Scuba Sex
Okay, so I know I keep saying it’s close. You’re saying, “yeah, yeah.” Well, the NiTek X is here and we are assembling the first 100 units, which are beta test units. While we were waiting for the parts to come, I have been diving the X with 4th cell integration on the O2ptima. It tracks well with the HH controller and the display is easy to read.
The first 100 units are full production beta units. We want and expect feedback from the divers who purchase them. Our development team are all tech divers so we know what tech divers expect, but we want your input so we can be sure everything you need is there. Any changes on the beta units can be sent via Workbench and USB upload cables.
I never thought I would see the day when sidemount diving became so popular that PADI would recognize it as a distinctive specialty. The Nomad has made this possible with a solution for any diver. There are many options with the Nomad because not one size fits all for this style of diving. We have packaged the Nomad for divers upgrading their TransPac to those needing to get a complete expedition system. The Basic Nomad is just the harness and wing and tank neck chokers, while the Expedition rig is complete with rigging for the tanks. Both systems are available in redundant, dual bladder models. We have more innovation coming in 2009.
Sidemount is the best way to carry bailout bottles for rebreather divers and for the tech diver traveling to remote locations where only single cylinders are available. If you have a question about sidemount ask it and I will answer it in this forum if possible.
In the meantime, you can also watch our sidemount videos found in our Solution Finder or Library.
