    Slim profile was a pro, but like other users I realised that only about 2 years after buying it, I found the yellow purge button had disintegrated into 6-7 pieces. Hopefully I can find a spare button, but will have to got back to my reserve occy to protect the diaphragm of the SlimLine.

    Comments about Oceanic Slimline Octopus, Yellow "Old Style":

    OK octopus. Breathes well and does not free flow. BUT, the purge button has cracked and got broken in little pieces after about 10 dives. No hard hit or inapropriate use what so ever. Seems like the good price is a reflex of the cheap material.
