My wife and I both check our split fins, boots, masks, and BCs - would this bag be likely to hold that volume of gear?
It may if you could fit one BDC inside the other and the fins inside of that. Otherwise, I am not sure if it would. I pack my bag full when I travel. with all my gear, BCD, fins, wetsuit, mesh bag, mesh backpack, regulator, mask and lights, it all fits.
This is a large bag. One pair of fins can go in the side pockets and the BCs boots, masks, and other pairs of fins will fit in the main compartment. Also this bag is at the limit of what the airlines call oversized so you will not need to pay extra for this.
Yes this bag will hold all of your gear and more. It is very roomy. However, it is not a sturdy bag. After just one dive trip to Malaysia the bag is torn up. One of the rollers no longer works and there are holes on the bottom front of the bag on each side. I would not purchase this bag again.
Yes, the bag will hold that and more. The fin pockets won't hold the largest fins but there is more than enough room to put them in the main compartment.
i pack a complete set of gear with no problem. however 2 sets of gear might be and it would also depend on your bcd's. not packing suits would definitely save you space.
it's perfect for one person's full gear!
This is a good one person bag. I don't think it would do two folks gear. I do pack a few wetsuits in mine but even if I didn't I don't think it would do two BCs. I can say it is perfect size for one person and always comes in under airline weight restrictions. I am not sure that it will stay as my forever bag. I am used to a big pelican box for gear, which was guaranteed against everything but bears and children, so I am giving it the rest of time. Two trips so far.
I have been to Hawaii 2 times with this bag and have been able to put both my son's and my gear in it easily. 2 sets of split fins, booties, BC's, masks, snorkels, dive lights, and I think I even fit in my sleeveless hoody. We carry our regulators on the plane. The only complaint I have is that it is kind of hard to wheel behind you when walking through an airport or from your hotel room to your car. Still, for the money this is a great bag and I recommend it and have been happy with it.
I purchased this bag in 2010 and since that time it has been to Belize, Dominica, Hondas, Porto Rico, and some other 3rd world locations. With the rising cost of checked bags I have found this bag to be light weight (6 lbs) and very durable. On several of these trips I loaded two sets of mask/fins/BCD/regulators/snorkels/and lightweight wet suits into the bag. With a full complement it can be slightly tight however it has never failed me to hold the whole load. The only thing that I would caution you about is not overloading the bag over 50 lbs., again due to the airline restrictions/cost of overweight bags. I’ve configured the bag several different ways and always managed to load it with our gear. Over the last four years it shown itself to be a good bag and certainly taken a beating on several of these trips.
Yes I think it would. My wife and I each bought one to keep the weight down and we can fit everything u need gear per person per bag and some extra. We r happy with the bag our first selection was returned.
The bag is great and very durable. However, the bag can hold only one full, complete set of dive gear: BC, regulator, wetsuit, mask, fins, snorkel, dry box. It cannot hold 2 BC's unless they are very compact, travel BC's that can be easily folded.
We have used two of these bags and a full set of gear fits easily and can stay under the 50# limit. The fin pockets are too small for our scubapro split fins however. Please note that light does not equal sturdy and after 3 trips to the Caribbean we have sustained tears and broken wheels. Would advise packing some duct tape for repairs.
This bag is capable of holding that amount.
It depends on the BCDs, 2 light ones might fit or one large one. The fins, again it depends on how large the fins are. I was able to fit a light BCD, large fins, mask, 2 shorties, dome port for my camera, and some cloths. I'm pretty happy with the amount of gear I can put into it.
