    Gloves for cold MO waters?

    I wear these in cold caves overseas. I think they have great dexterity and are comfortable. The secondary seal can go over or under your Drysuit seal. According to the instructions the seal is meant...

    Gloves for cold MO waters?

    Gloves for cold MO waters?

    I used to think the cold didn't bother me much, at least not my hands feet and face. Oh well, I guess I was wrong, or just young...we'll go with wrong. I would like to dive Roubidoux and maybe...

    Waterproof housing for DistoX - Looking for info

    Call Ike. What makes camera housings expensive is the controls and lens port. If you are just looking for a plain pressure-tight box, Ike may be able to cut you a deal.

    Power Connector Type Question

    Be CAREFUL using some other type of connector. Powerpoles can pass higher amperage than most other type of plugs.
