60:Second ScubaLab - Cressi Supernova Dry Snorkel
Cressi’s R1 jacket-style BC is comfortable and easy to use. It features padding in the back and lumbar areas as well as underneath the shoulders, and the air cell slides on the cummerbund, eliminating body squeeze. The rigid backpack delivers a stable ride, and the Lock Aid integrated weight system loads and ditches easily. Available in five sizes with buoyant lift up to 36 pounds
Offering a packing volume of 145 liters, Cressi’s Cargo combines a hard case with a roomy dive bag made of durable 420 denier material. The main compartment comes with compression straps, and there’s an additional compartment on top for stowing smaller items. It will handle all the gear necessary for an extended dive vacation plus is built tough to withstand the rigors of life on the road.
Cressi’s Spring 3.5 one-piece wetsuit is designed to be worn in waters ranging from the tropical to the marginally warm.
Cressi’s frameless mask is lightweight, low volume and offers a compact profile. Its flared single window lens provides good field of view, including over the bridge of the nose. The silicone skirt’s double seal system is effective in blocking water entry. Strap buckles attach directly to the skirt, allowing for lots of lateral movement, plus lets the mask fold flat for packing. The mask comes with a black or white skirt.
Cressi’s PC Interface Kit for its Leonardo dive computer is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems that can be downloaded at www.cressi.com. Once the appropriate software package is installed on your personal computer, simply connect the module to your PC using the included USB cord. Then place your Leonardo face-down in the cradle and you’re ready to start transferring and printing out dive profile data.
Cressi’s Leonardo dive computer earned both a Testers Choice and a Best Buy in ScubaLab’s 2011 Dive Computer Review. Its long list of features includes Cressi’s special RGBM algorithm with three diver-programmable safety levels, an optional Deep Stop function, and a 70-hour or 60-dive logbook.
Cressi’s XS Compact/MC9 is designed for all divers, but is especially well-suited to the traveling diver. The hyper-balanced diaphragm MC9 first stage has a small, chromium-plated brass body that’s protected by a special elastomer skin.
Cressi’s popular raked-glass single-window Piuma mask is now available with Cressi’s exclusive crystal-clear silicone. This silicone creates a mask skirt that is so close to total transparency, it simply has to be seen to be believed.
Kicking versatility through interchangeable blades is the name of the game with Cressi’s new Gara Modular free-diving fin. The standard blade is lightweight and provides a nice mix of power and flexibility.
Cressi’s Lido two-mil shorty provides enough high-stretch neoprene to help keep you warm and protect against stinging critters, but not so much neoprene that you feel overdressed in the bathtub-warm waters of the tropics.
