In Topic: Holy Cow! How will I pack a 230mm dome port?

29 February 2016 - 03:24 AM

I've used 2 different methods

 

1. Tupperware container in checked luggage. I found one that fit my Aquatica 9.25" dome perfectly.

 

2. Kata CC-195 bag as carryon. Its a video gear bag but the shape is unique - the bags cross section (height x width) stated as 24x27cm. Perfect for a 23cm dome to sit upright. I can fit my full rig including dome in this bag. The size is questionable as a carry on but i've never had a problem. 

 

**Wow looks like Manfrotto bought Kata. Seems its now the Manfrotto CC-195

 

Cheers,

In Topic: 5mm wetsuit that says warm topside

30 November 2015 - 02:05 PM

thanks for the suggestions. 

 

It does sound like the aquaflite 'oceanliner' option is similar to the old gold core. I'll look into that. I'm not sure what 'skin in' means and googling only leads to thin dive skins. 

 

Granted, I don't think the mention of 'titanium' from other wetsuit brands means that type of smooth reflective quick drying liner material to which i'm referring. I'm pretty sure thats just a marketing gimmick.

 

Tim: Yes this is for winter here in Bermuda, though I'd prefer to avoid the bulk and especially the expense of a tropical dry suit. I do already own a 7mm neoprene dry suit from my days in the Northeast US - slight overkill here though. Thanks for the thought. 

 

Any other suggestions on suits (with special liners) that say warm topside would be much appreciated. 

 

Cheers,

 

Chris


In Topic: storing fins between trips

30 August 2015 - 02:16 PM

Im in the water year round and my 2 primary pairs of fins (full foot cressi garas and open heel mares avanti) are over 10 yrs old and just starting to show wear. I often don't even rinse them. Too busy taking care of my camera and bc/reg. Fins are the one thing you don't need to worry about.
