BCD attachable Carry Pouch
Recommended deployment from your Safety Stop: Sport Diving / Recreational Diving
The WDS eliminates the need to carry a dedicated reel or spool.
The Open - Ended Buoy has the advantage that it is more compact than Self-Sealing Buoys and can emptied quickly at the end of the dive for stowage.
Carry Pouch can be used for external BCD attachment. Compact enough to take on every dive.
The SOLAS Reflective Tape reflects light by day and night.
Stainless Steel Rescue Mirror to attract attention of boats and aircraft in stranded diver situations.
Made from durable 210D Nylon with welded seams and stitched edge tape to prevent fraying.
Color: Orange-Yellow. With both an orange and a yellow panel this is by far the most visible combo for the recreational diver. The orange panel is more visible in bright sunlight and significant glare. While the yellow panel will prove its worth as light deteriorates or the clouds move in
