        Comments about Oceanic Air XS 2 Regulator/Inflator Lower Assembly:

        This is a great choice if you want to eliminate unnecessary hoses. Unfortunately, when I upgraded to the Oceanic Excursion 2 there were some compatibility issues in terms of the fitting that attaches into the corrugated hose not being long enough.
        So the lesson learned is make sure you ask questions prior to purchasing this item.

        Comments about Oceanic Air XS 2 Regulator/Inflator Lower Assembly:

        Works well but little hard to breathe. Considering its a replacement for the Octo, I think that's okay. Different size LP hose from what I had and little awkward (for me) for adding or dumping air. Takes some getting used to but I would do it again and I would recommend it.

                "Ask the Pro" says this will fit a Cressi but I had to reposition and play with the tie wrap a few times to get it where it would not leak. Functional but not comfortable to use but then again, it's there as a back up, not a primary. One less hose!

                The unit works well, but there is a configeration problem to some BCD's. I had to adapt a scuba-pro hose to my Zeagle to get it to work.

                Questions about this item:

                Nick M  is this compatible with the cressi travelight bcd?
                CHRISTOPHER K  I do not own a Cressi but I am fairly sure that you will fine. I have installed inflators in several different brands of BCD's and the hose diameter from the inflator to the jacket has always been standard. However, you will have to get a different low pressure hose to go to your regulator. The quick connect is a different size. You may be able to contact the factory rep's on their websites or scubaboard if you need verification.
                Stephen L  My Dacor BCD appears to have a 7/8" hose. Will it fit this regulator?
                Ben T  Being that Dacor is long discontinued. I cannot verify it will.
                skipper f  I sold my reg and forgot to remove the inflator hose. Does anyone know what size the quick disconnect is and is there an adapter available that will allow me to use my BC W/ Air XS and a rental or borrowed reg?
                Joe S  Yes they make an adapter. The Innovative Scuba Concepts part number is HO0423. Leisure Pro is an ISC dealer so they can get you this part if they do not have it in stock. Chances are they do. This adapter works for Oceanic, AERIS, Zeagle, and SeaQuest Power Inflator/Octo Combo regulators.
