Welcome to the Cave Diver's Forum.
  • Configurations RSS Feed





    This site is designed as a resource for both new and seasoned cave divers. You will see here a multitude of different equipment, configurations and styles including but not limited to, back mount, side mount, DIR, and rebreathers. It is the author's intention to present these equipment choices and configurations in an unbiased manner, so the educated individual is presented with a wide variety of options in order to make a well informed, personal decision regarding their caving gear and style. Many thanks to the people who have donated their time, ingenuity and knowledge to make this page available and especially to those who continue to educate about safety, knowledge, technique and conservation and are actively working to keep our wonderful underwater caves open for diving!!

    If you would like to submit pictures of your personal gear configuration and/or an accompanying text to explain why your gear is configured in this manner or if you have any comments or suggestions as to how this site could be improved, please feel free to email me at Rich@cavediver.net. Thanks for taking the time to look at this site and safe diving!!

    The purpose of the GEAR CONFIGURATION RESOURCE PAGE (GCRP) is to provide a resource or library for reviewing other cave divers gear configurations and methods. This section is not a place to learn how to cavern or cave dive. This section contains plenty of ideas, comments, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, in how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content posted here, and the ideas and opinions posted herein are personal ideas and opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate, or at least extremely subjective. Entry into any overhead environment without proper training and equipment can get you killed (movie with sound). Opinions expressed in this section are not necessarily those of the sponsors

    Analox o2 Eii analyzer

    that sounds about right for dry on land sensor usage.
    Even without "extra" care that is what one should achieve with such usage..
    Obviously very different in rebreather environment. pushing it past...

    Tek Dive... anyone going?

    Not even close. Try double. If you do the whole shebang:

    $330 x 2 Reg fee
    $150 x 2 2 nights hotel (incl tax & fees)
    $50 tank of gas (if you're lucky)
    $100 incidentals (drinks, snacks,...

    Analox o2 Eii analyzer

    For any concerned buyers who either believe or disbelieve Nitrogenius's advice, the package is still air tight, vaccum sealed.

    On a side note, while I have not researched Nitrogenius's standpoint...

    As an instructor I would expect my annual dues to be used for promoting the agency and the instructional aspect of it.

    Now how about sharing a booth with one of the many sponsors of the NSS-CDS?...

    Has anyone replaced the O2 senors in a CooTwo analyzer?

    I haven't had any problems until now. They are small, and convenient, because they combine O2, and CO in the same unit. I don't think you have to replace the CO sensor nearly as often as the O2...

    Tek Dive... anyone going?

    Same boat as everyone else. Loved 2016, but new pricing really turned me off. I ended up making different plans that weekend and won't be attending.

    I also don't like being forced to pay for lunch...

    It seems to me that the instructors with the CDS would be the greatest beneficiaries of the CDS attending events like this. If this is the case then why are they not paying for the costs associated...
