Pros: Easy to adjust mask and it did not leak. Tempered glass and soft silicon A++ snorkel exceeded my expectations. It stayed dry. I intentionally flooded it for deeper dives, and it cleared on surfacing easily and was dry again until the next deep dive. Shallow dives, I left eh mouth piece in and the snorkel did not flood. A++ I bought two more for my wife nad kids. In the past I have bought higher $$$ snorkel gear, but after buying these, I am happier with US Divers.
This book was a great mix on the culture and history of Hawaii, as well as great advice on scuba diving from people who actually dive and live there. The authors, who are also marine biologists and photographers, pointed out a lot of marine life that I previously didn't even know to look for. After reading, my dives were greatly enhanced having this added knowledge. And the photography was nice too. Very easy and interesting to read.
Took this to Jamaica twice for scuba diving. Amazing, crystal clear shots down to 60 feet so far. Would highly recommend for anyone who dives or swims and has an iphone and wants to take underwater pictures!
My 8 year old is very thin and has no body fat to speak of, so he gets chilled quickly when swimming. This helps; he still gets chilled, but somewhat slower. He's average height for an 8 year old. The size 8 was a bit loose, because he's so thin; he's comfortable in it but because it is loose, cool water gets in, decreasing its effectiveness. However I wouldn't have expected a perfect fit for such a slim kid. It also gives him room to grow into it so we should get two year's use out of it. We've only used it a few times, but so far it seems reasonably well-made and durable.
I'm ambivalent about the zipper in back. It means he needs help getting into and out of the suit which is a bummer. But I was worried that ... full review
I'm not sure the other review of this is fair. Sure it is a dive map, and if that's not what you need, well, fine. But it doesn't mean that the product itself is bad.
Franko's maps are THE best maps for diving and snorkelling, and, contrary to other reviews, are some great general-use maps as well. Roads, dive sites, fish, topography are all displayed in a pleasing way. Attention to detail is apparent in all Franko's maps. These are some of the better examples of cartography available for the sites they cover. Highly recommended!
