The wristwatch design of Cressi’s Edy II is striking, but this dive computer offers tons of functionality in addition to its sleek good looks. The Edy II offers dive, gauge and free dive modes.
Based on a design used in Cressi’s successful free-diving line, the classically crafted Master Frog paddle fin offers performance-minded divers pure power for a great price.
The Pro Light is an extremely light and well-balanced fin that’s surprisingly responsive and powerful. The compact blade features a soft rubber center panel that’s flanked by thermoplastic stiffeners and flexible yet supportive side rails. This combination provides nice blade flex when kicking, and allows you to maintain stability whether you prefer flutter, scissor or frog style kicking. The fin has two flaps along the end of the blade, a design that allows divers to change direction with only minimal kicking effort.
The Marea Dry Combo features all the same technical benefits as other masks and snorkels in Cressi’s line, but with a brand-new style for 2012.
Features: 3.5 mm Ultraspan highflex neoprene; glued and blind-stitched seams; smoothskin seals at wrists and ankles; smoothskin spinal flap; adjustable collar with smoothskin sealing surface; embossed rubber kneepads.
Cressi’s Reaction adjustable fin has a long and relatively flexible blade that’s made from a new-generation technical polypropylene. This lightweight composite makes for a responsive fin throughout each phase of the kicking cycle.
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.
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 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.
Sure, there might be other dive gear deemed more important to basic survival (a reg) or your general well-being (a dive computer) than a BC. But when it comes to being able to comfortably acclimate to being underwater — to the point where you feel like a resident rather than a clumsy topside tourist — the BC is the most important component of your kit.
