The SeaLion BC from SeaSoft comes in just four sizes. But that doesn’t mean it fits just four sizes of divers. With the SeaLion, a diver can actually keep the same-sized BC for a lifetime. For example, the extra-small SeaLion will fit a typical 10-year-old who weighs about 50 pounds, but will then adjust to fit an adult up to 180 pounds. The SeaLion is equally at home in warm, tropical water or over a drysuit and features an integrated retractor, brass gauge clip, dual tank straps, integrated weights and a full component of D-rings.

Seasoft’s frameless Visionmaster Super Mask features lenses made of H-G-G glass with Crystal ARC anti-reflective coatings that virtually eliminate glare. HGG glass and Crystal ARC coatings are found on the optics of leading riflescopes and camera lenses and allow up to 20% more light to reach your eyes.
Seasoft’s Stealth and Sunray booties are built with a hard sole that keeps a diver’s feet from moving up and down inside the foot pocket of their fins, one of a diver’s biggest causes of cramps. The booties are manufactured just like athletic shoes with a well-designed elevated heel and arch support.
Seasoft Scuba’s tough DryPak keeps your clothes and towels from getting wet, but it also provides protection for sensitive electronics—including a removable padded laptop sleeve and a front pocket for keys, C-card, sunscreen and sunglasses.

The RayGun High Beam from SEASOFT SCUBA weighs in at just 6.5 oz, even with its two 3-volt lithium batteries. This AMERICAN designed and manufactured featherweight dive light is a heavyweight in performance, however, delivering one of the brightest spots in ScubaLab testing. This ScubaLab Tester’s Choice is a dive torch that’s compact enough to be used as a backup, but powerful enough to be a primary light.
Test divers liked the design and feel of the TravLite, but the lack of stability was a drawback. It also carries about 2-and-a-half pounds of inherent buoyancy, among the highest of this year’s tests.
