Where better to put a drysuit through its paces than in Florida's iconic cave systems? Okay, maybe Antarctica, but when you test drysuits in Florida, something that can hold up to the rough limestone walls of a cave takes precedence.
Though I’d never seen tankless dive gear in action, the benefit of this system—so small it fitted in a backpack—was obvious. It was light and portable. Not only would it give people access to hard-to-reach bodies of water but it would also serve as “a gateway drug to scuba diving” given you don’t need a scuba certification to try it.
