Comfort that is what everyone wants in a Buoyancy Compensator. Being comfortable is one of the most essential elements that determines whether or not you're having a pleasant diving experience. Achieving and maintaining neutral buoyancy is a necessary skill to be comfortable in the water. Nothing makes your command of this skill easier than the new AXIS BC. Whether the sewn-in back pack that provides unprecedented stability with the tank, the convenience of the back-mounted flotation cell, or the time-proven, reliable, easy-to-operate CQR3 integrated weight system that secures the placement of your weights, you can expect comfort with the new AXIS. Finishing details such as the plush interior with a comfort neckline, convenient pockets with zipper closures, the high-grade materials, and rear-mounted trim weight pockets all lead to a buoyancy compensator that will maximize your diving convenience and comfort.
The design of the AXIS and simplified harness system allows you to get into the gear with minimum of adjustments. These features make this BC a favorite of novice as well as advanced divers.

The Sherwood Gemini gives you exceptional breathing performance without any in-water adjustments required. Made with durable materials, the Gemini gives you superior performance that you would expect from a primary regulator. The Gemini replaces the conventional BC power inflator and backup second stage regulator. With this two-in-one breathing device, an extra hose is eliminated, giving you a less cumbersome dive. The power inflation, oral inflation, and exhaust trim valve are designed to remain similar to standard BC inflators, so you are already familiar with the Gemini's operating system.
When you're taught how to dive you are given practice in buoyancy control more than any other skill. Once you start to dive every time you go underwater, fin the reef, or surface you use buoyancy control. All this time your octopus second stage regulator hangs un-used and out of mind. When a real life out-of-air situation occurs, the stress and anxiety mounts, and you find yourself fumbling for a piece of equipment you never use the Octopus! Combining your inflator devise (that you use on every dive) with your octopus Regulator assures your ability to react properly when an out-of-air emergency occurs. Be a safe diver with the Gemini Breathable Inflator. The Gemini comes equipped with an Owner's Manual; a 3/8" Threaded High-Flow Quick-Disconnect Hose and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
