Snorkel Gear Review #1 Scuba Package
Great Gear from a name you can trust.
Let’s face it, those new to diving have quite a bit of gear to pick out. Luckily, the hard work has been done for you with the Cressi Scuba Diving package. Let”s look at what is included and I will break it down below:
BCD with Integrated weight :
Compact Regulator (3 color)
Compact Octopus with Hose
Nothing beats having your own gear and not having to worry about sketchy regulators or oversized BCs before heading underwater. There are tons of combinations out there, but having all of your gear under one trusted brand name is hard to beat. If you have been here before, you know I am a fan of Cressi and trust their gear.
Dive Computer: Cressi Air/Nitrox Leonardo Computer Console
The fact this comes with a dive computer is HUGE. For beginner divers, dive tables can be confusing and it is always helpful to have a dive computer as backup. Lightweight, compact, and a few hooks for accessories make this a very good combo. Features include:
- Single button interface for easy programming
- Depth, decompression status, and dive times
- Book/Saves ~60 dives
Regulator: Cressi AC2 Regulator
Perfect for a new diver, reviewers have taken regulator over 100ft with no problems. Lightweight, durable, and made from marine grade chromed brass, this regulator is a great addition to the scuba package. Also comes with a two year warranty.
BCD: Cressi R1 Weight Integrated BCD
Simple and to the point, the Cressi R1 is perfect for any diver. Integrated weights, 3 release valves, and stiffened back make it a perfect for new divers as well. A few key features include:
- 6-Alloy D-Rings for Accessory Attachment
- Two Large Zipped Pockets
- 5 Sizes to choose from
- Integrated weights
Octopus/ Second stage: Cressi Compact Octopus with Hose
Reliable and always ready, the Cressi compact octopus will fits perfectly into this full gear setup. A comfy mouthpiece and a”reliable downstream demand this yet another perfect fit for this dive package.
Being one of the most important, yet delicate, pieces of a divers arsenal, it only make sense for you to keep your regulator protected. The Gear Up Guide bag will do just this and will keep your gear in top shape for years.
Should I Buy?
If you are looking for a one stop shop to get started in diving….this is the perfect package. Cressi makes awesome gear and has great customer service as well if anything were to ever go wrong with the scuba package. I have used the BCD and have never had any issues and enjoy all of the D rings for attaching spearfishing gear.
