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

    The original G250 came with various add ons to the name such as "graphite" but there were no significant differences until the G250 HP came out. The G250 HP used an entirely different air barrel and...

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    Just move to cave country. You are within 2 hours of either JAX, MCO, or TPA. Take your pick of the cheapest flight from any one of them. Orlando is a nightmare and I would not recommend living there...

    I used these guys in High Springs when our AC went on the fritz in our Fort White rental home. They drove out that day, and fixed everything - I was really impressed. http://coolairamerica.com/

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    I love living in Tampa. Lots to do here and nothing is far away. Good access to the highway makes cruising up to cave country relatively painless. The airport is very accessible. I live in south...
