    I have done about 30 dives with this gear in the Seychelles. At first I was using rental gear, but I was out here long enough to have this gear sent out to me and it has made my diving experience a lot better out here. The dive computer is easy to use and the regulator pushes the air into my lungs at deep depths. I typically dive at 40m and I have no problem breathing with this gear.

    I have less than 10 dives after completing my open water cert. I am happy with the package with the exception of the BCD. The back inflate BCD with side weight pockets make it very hard to balance. I had to add a few lbs of weight to my back on a belt to get it straight. I also don't like the plastic tank buckle. It should be steel. Other than that the package is a great value and im happy with it.

        I just put 17 immersions to this gear and it performed flawlessly.
        Regulator: Confortable, great flow of air even at deep dives.
        BCD: Bit heavy for traveling but not an issue for me. Really confortable in the water. The weight system worked perfectly (just make triple sure it's locked propperly). Enough D rings to hold everything i needed.
        Computer: SO easy to use!! Easy to read!! I was missing a console holder wich I'm gettint ASAP.
        It was an amazing choice, so happy with my new gear.

            I ordered this package about 3 or four years ago. I had not wanted to write a review until I had put it through its paces.
            The good- Leisure Pro delivery is by far the quickest I have seen. I am currently working in the middle east. 6-8 days every order....
            - The product, in fact the whole package has not been disappointing. The BC functions well and fits comfortably, The regs, while lacking a manual adjustment on the outside function well at depth and in shallow waters. The computer is functional, for openwater it more than fits the needs of a beginner to advanced diver.
            - Durability, to date I have only had one issue. An O-Ring blew on the pressure gauge. I replaced it in about 30 sec and was on the next dive.

            All in all this is a great package, not so good for travel the BC is bulky, but if you are driving to the boat or shop it is convenient enough.
