Reacting properly in an Out of Air Situation can make the difference between an eventful dive and a tragedy. If your alternate air source and your BCD inflator devise are one and the same you will always know where to find it in an emergency. AIR2 is more than a simple inflator. Its components design takes advantage from the best regulator technology to guarantee maximum efficiency and reliability. As an inflator AIR2 provides perfect pressure control for a great buoyancy management. Ergonomic shape makes it easy-to-handle in any circumstances and it can be emptied by simply pressing the exhaust button.

Comments about Scubapro Litehawk BC with Air 2:
I bought this for travel purposes and because I lost a lot of weight. We just got back from a cruise to the Caribbean where I dove at Grand Cayman, Roatan and Cozumel. I had no problems with the BC and it worked as well as my KnightHawk, just a lot lighter to pack. I got the accessory weight pouches which made things easier. I want to try it in cold water to see how it works. I don't know why it wouldn't perform as well in comld water as it did in the warm water.
