I am a US Sailing Umpire and Senior Judge, and spend a lot of time on the water. I purchased the Princeton Tec Aqua Strobe to attach to the PFD that I wear when I am umpiring or judging sailing race (I also wear the PFD kayaking). The Aqua Strobe easily attaches to the fitting on a medium to high end Kotatat or Salus brand kayaking PFD. While not bright enough for use in offshore racing (for which I would use an ACR Firefly or equivalent), the Aqua Strobe is very suitable for the applications I wear a PFD for. The one negative is the strobe could be brighter, but that would require a much bigger and heavier battery than one AA, which is not what you want on a recreational PFD.

I bought one when I started diving, and it's been in my BC pocket for 140 dives. It hasn't leaked yet. It still flashes when I test it. It's too bright for a buddy marker, and not really bright enough as an emergency beacon. It's small enough to bring on every dive. I suppose it'd be useful if I was separated from my boat on a night dive, but a regular flashlight would also work.I could recommend it to a friend who wanted a very compact, budget strobe. Princeton Tec's service department is great! (I've had some of their other lights leak, but they were replaced free of charge.

Comments about Princeton Tec, Aqua Strobe:
Purchased a 3 piece set. Small strobe broken from day 1. Mid size now has the battery carrige plastic assembly crumbling apart and not useable. Called customer service here in my home state (NJ) and get NO return calls or help at all. Wouldn't buy ANYTHING Princeton Tec ever again. Horrible quality and even worse customer service.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Poor quality and worse support
from boston, ma
I purchased this product along with 6 other Prinction Tec lights for use in nighttime sea kayaking where Deep submersion was not a concern. The strobe did not function out of the package! I could not get any response either by email or phone from the manufacturer. I finally had to disassemble the unit and being an engineer, repaired the circuit board myself (the board was actually broken). There is no way this occurred in shipping, basically a poorly produced and supported product. Purchase another brand if you want to count on this as a piece of safety equipment where your life may depend on it!

I bought this strobe to use as an ascent line marker and a reference point during night dives. It fits easily into a pocket, which is nice. It's not very bright, but good bright strobes for diving are actually pretty hard to find. It is buoyant, so you'll need to tie some weight on it to keep it submerged. Overall, it's not a bad strobe, but it would be nice if it was brighter.
