      Comments about Mares Rebel Octopus:

      Good octo for the post part. Did have some free flow issues initially but when I got it hanging the right way on my bc it was fine. Came with an incredibly long hose which did not make me streamlined at all. With a shorter hose it would be fine.

            Easy to breath in, feels safe, don't freeflow at all. Only have 10 dives before I bye this. Have 16 dives with this, and feel good with the fact that it was just there in case of needed it :-)
