Simple installation. Does what manufacturer claims. Highly recommended.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Works well

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.

Nice and Compact

By

from Brunswick, OH, US

I like less clutter and this helps achieve it. One note, I bought the lower assembly only. It did come with a MyFlex style hose that was way too long. I had to but an inflator hose the correct length, pretty much wiping out the savings I got from buying the lower part. It also didn't fit quite as nicely on the end of the BC tube. I would recommend buying the whole assembly for the length you want.

Nice Convenient Regulator

By

from Virginia Beach, VA, US

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.

Good backup air source

By

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.

Does the job

By

"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!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

caleb w  has anyone had problems with the diaphragm not holding up and collapsing, allowing air to flow through freely?
JOHN D  So far I have only used mine for 26 dives in warm water, but have not had any problems.
DAVID L  i have never had the diaphragm not hold up, or tear. they are pretty durable i have two air xs 2 apx 3 years and 10 years both have original diaphragms although a few time i noticed a small leak both times i unscrewed the retainer ring and removed the diaphragm and flushed with water to resolve the issues. apparently some sand slipped in while lobstering.
DAVID M  No. Been using for almost 3 years with no issues.
DALE P  Yes. Was unable to use manual inflater to inflate BCD without covering exhaust port to divert air flow.
TORBJORN L  I have never experienced this with the Oceanic Air XS 2 during the approximate 20 dives performed with this equipment. Have had the regulator for 3 years now, all dives performed in warm waters.
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.
RICHARD E  I would think so, it's more about the length of the low pressure hose. If your bcd dumps air by pulling down (quick dumps) make sure your low pressure hose is long enough. You can always dump air with the exhaust button. Otherwise the Air XS2 simply replaces the auto or manual inflator and provides a backup regulator. I really like mine it breathes nice, I use it occasionally as a primary just to keep confidence in it.
Frank L  No, it is not. There is no integrated Octo we can recommend for the Cressi BC's due to a non-standard corrugated hose connection.
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.
