I'll never go back to a standard Octopus

The idea with this, or any similar product, is that you do as follows: Your buddy signs "I need air!" 1. YOU put the secondary air source in your mouth and hand him your normal second stage (which is still in your hand -- you just took it out of your mouth). 2. You grasp him by the lapels and hold him close (he doesn't have enough hose to wander off, so you are in control -- a Good Thing if he's a little panicky). 3. Ascend safely. The three advantages of one of these things are that ...

Sexy but don't

First of all, this is a non-standard piece of gear in several ways; blue and not yellow. Okay maybe no big deal but may take slightly longer to locate (you are supposed to hand it to the diver, not let them grab it, but it happens) and once you do, the hose is MUCH shorter than a normal dedicated octo so the divers have to be right up close to each other, also the out of air diver has control of your inflator, not good. My LP hose failed catastrophically on the 28th dive. I dealt with it, an...

After a week of diving

By

from Salina, KS, US

The AS2 worked fine after I finally figured out that the deflate button must be depressed fully (and it was pretty stiff) in order to work, but the convenience and weight reduction of the unit makes it what I was looking for.

Flawed design

By

from Los Angeles, CA, US

I returned this inflator after diving with it for a few days. I'm an expert diver with thousands of dives, and purchased the AirXS because I bought an Oceanic BCD and my old reg/ Inflator wasn't compatible. My biggest gripe is that the manual deflation button is located below the mouthpiece in a very awkward place to reach. Though the AirXS also has a pull deflation system, I want every option easily available, especially since I've had a couple of pull deflation systems go out In the past, so I know they're vulnerable. I instead bought an Atomic SS1, which has adapters included to fit most BCDs.

Great Octo/Inflator Combo

By

I love this octo/inflator combo. Seems ruggedly built and should last a long time. Breathes very easily. I've had no free flow problems. I also found it very easy to use with my 5 mm cold water gloves. Better than my previous Sherwood octo combo that I used to use.

The three advantages of one of these things are that (a) you KNOW where your spare is, all the time, (b) You control your buddy, not vice versa, (c) you don't drag your octopus across the bottom or get it snagged somewhere. Personally, I'll never go back to a standard octopus (this one isn't mine, I have a ScubaPro Air II, but same idea. I'm getting this for my son, because I'm that sold on its being a safer option, and he dives an Oceanic BC). I'll grant you, your octopus SHOULD be secured, but they don't always stay that way. With the Air II, I always KNOW right where it's at.

No problems after 4 years

By

Takes a few dives to become very familiar with its operation. You give your primary for buddy breathing, or your going to make it a uncomfortable and difficult return to surface. No issues with free flow, generally have it serviced annually. Additionally I insure that it is rinsed out and dried thourghly after each dive. It doesn;t get abused as most other lenghty octos. You won;t be acccidently dragging it thru the sand and bumping it on coral. (Unless you have some serous bouyancy issues) While in transit or traveling I tuck it inside my BCD for protection. My only gripe is that the quick disconnect to the unit is non-standard and difficult to find or replace.
