Cressi’s Spring 3.5 one-piece wetsuit is designed to be worn in waters ranging from the tropical to the marginally warm. Made from Ultraspan neoprene, the suit comes with pre-shaped legs and provides lots of freedom of movement. Its glued and blind-stitched seams minimize water seepage. Wrist and ankle seals are made with a new Aqua-stop smooth-skin cuff. The adjustable neck seal is also smooth-skin neoprene. It is available in six mens sizes and five Spring Lady sizes.

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.
The winner of both a ScubaLab Testers Choice and a Best Buy, the Travelight is a full-featured jacket-style BC designed for traveling divers. Constructed of featherlight 210-denier nylon, it comes with Cressi’s Lock Aid integrated weight system, two zippered pockets and six alloy D-rings. Its soft pack design can be folded in seconds and stowed in its own carry bag. For 2013 the BC features a new range of colors.
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.

The Supernova Dry snorkel from Cressi uses a 100 percent silicone mouthpiece and a corrugated breathing tube, and comes with a large, easy-to-clear purge valve on the bottom, and a completely dry top on the other end. It’s the perfect design in a snorkel, allowing for effortless breathing performance when cruising along on the surface, plus it eliminates virtually all water from entering the tube when submerged.
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.
This year’s undisputed favorite among test divers, the Aquaride Elite is well built with virtually no inherent buoyancy.
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.
