      Comments about OMS 5' 2" Emergency Surface Marker Buoy with 30 lb. Lift:

      This SMB is well-constructed, built to last (mine has lasted 5 years, 60+ dives) and still looks brand new even after a few deployments. It inflates, holds air well and does not bend on the surface, even with it is windy. It is quick dry and rolls up to fit in my BCD pocket. You'll need a pouch if you don't have a BCD pocket.
      I'm giving it 4 stars as I have the old model, no over pressure valve and no baffle at the bottom. In spite of the detractions, I liked it so much, I've just bought the orange version (with baffle and OP valve).

        This SMB is primarily intended for use by tech divers in need of assistance. Under normal diving conditions, the use of the Orange SMB is the standard

        Comments about OMS 5' 2" Emergency Surface Marker Buoy with 30 lb. Lift:

        Have not used it yet. This is large, even rolled up it is a large bulky package. Looks very visible from a distance and provides a lot of lift when used for a lift bag. I thought it would have an oral inflation valve also but it does not. I thought it would be same as the orange OMS model(but in yellow) which has oral valve as well but it is not the same. Too bulky for recreational use in my opinion. Well made just bulky.

        Comments about OMS 5' 2" Emergency Surface Marker Buoy with 30 lb. Lift:

        Another great product from OMS. This safety sausage does just what it is designed to do. Easily deploys and highly visible. I like to use the top strap for attaching a writing slate to describe problem on bottom if situation calls for it. This should be a must on all dives for those trained in their use.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        SPENCER H  Excellent OMS quality. I don't prefer having "emergency" on it, but most CA boat DMs don't even read it.
        valery b  does it have an OPV?
        MATTHEW H  If you mean some sort of dump or purge valve to release pressure as the marker rises through the water column then, no it does not.
        Shopper  I am looking for a surface marking device if you get separated from the boat. Is this oral inflated and sealable to wave around in the air or attach to someone?
        LeisurePro S  This one must be inflated with a regulator and is sealed to wave around. Try this one for oral inflation http://www.leisurepro.com/Prod/XSSSMB.html
