Can you orally inflate this product?
DANIEL S You cannot orally inflate this bag. Those who said above that the bag has an inflator mouthpiece are wrong. You CAN, however, use they exhaust bubbles from your reg to inflate this bag.
VITALIY G Well, you can, but it is not practical (no mouthpiece).
GREG G The design is for the air source to fill from the bottom (end with the larger loop). It would be possible to orally inflate, but it isn't really practical to do so. It would also be difficult to inflate it to a pressure point where it would stand up when inflated at the surface.
DONALD M It doesn't have a mouthpiece for oral inflation. It is designed to be inflated at depth like a lift bag by purging air from your regulator into it from below.
FRED G Hi Justin. You could orally inflate it, but it wouldn't be very practical. This type of SMB is fairly high volume. I can probably better halp you select the best SMB for your purposes, if you email me directly at: Doriadiver11@aol.com, and tell me a little bit about the type of diving you're doing (offshore--ocean diving), where you plan to dive (traveling to exotic locations ?), and your experience level. Then I can reply with some better advice about which product(s) would be best suited. Once again, my direct email address is: Doriadiver11@aol.com. I've been diving since 1974, an instructor since 1981, and was a commercial diver in the oil/gas industry for a number of years in the Gulf of Mexico, so I'm sure I can offer you good advice. Best Regards
D.ROY C it's an open bottom with a one way flapper valve, so i guess you could blow bubbles into it, it has no mouthpiece to inflate it, , you would normally inflate by using a second stage or your compensator hose
DANIEL C I don't think It's intended for oral use (that's what she said)
JAMES D Don't know haven't tried. Being underwater though it would take forever if u could.
PHILIP H No. You do it with your regulator.
