I decided it would be crazy of me to get back into the water w/o such a device....how stupid would I feel IF I ran into a situation where spare air was needed and I'd opted to save a few bucks. Just couldn't get those thoughts out of my head, so pulled the trigger. Why take the risk. How often is your dive buddy within reach...I mean close enough you could reach his octopus w/o having to take at least a few good kicks? Could you get there if you went to inhale and couldn't get that breath you needed RIGHT NOW...still got enough air to close up on your buddy and get to his octopus?
Spare-Air eliminates that concern.
It attaches easily to you BC...just remember to put it where you can REACH it easily. I found attaching it (open end down) near the lower end of my tank made opening the Velcro cover on the carry bag awkward...was out of the way yet retrievable, but took a few seconds to get to. Found this out while testing accessibility and function of it on one of my last dives of the 20 I did with Spare-Air at Cocos Island...no emergency, I had air and time to play with it.
The only downside I can see to Spare-Air is that you have to work a bit harder to draw each breath. Not a big price to pay to stay alive in a serious air emergency, however.

LIMITED, Not good for deeper diving..

ONLY 3 Cu Ft. Very limited to shollower depths. Not enough supply to get you up from under 90'. Be Careful....

Just got back from St Lucia, where I got my Advanced Open Water Diver Certification. At 100' having my Spare Air system gave me added security. Priceless, I'll never dive again without it!!!

      Quickly rechargable, small, exactly what I needed. Also, great if you need to get in a water in hurry for emergencies. Used it to replace the prop on my boat.

      I believe this is a must item for any serious diver, however, after a couple of uses, I haven't found a satisfactory way to secure it to my BCD or me in general. It is continually moving around. In time, I'll figure it out!

      Spare air is a great compact device that can save you in a bind. It holds just enough air to get you back. If you are in deco or want to make a safety stop this will not be the best choice. Gives about 10min of air on the surface.

        great for a safe ascent at 30 meters but be aware of the safety leash. used mine for first time today and when i got back to the car noticed it had snapped near the crimps, don't want to see your bottle sink to bottom of the ocean.

        Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        JIM B  Utilze these on the Search & Recovery team as many of the waters we dive in are black water and have a great potential for one to become entangled and this was small enough to be attached to drysuit to buy some time if the occassion arose.
        LIN Y  CE approved?
        BRYAN H  I don't know what "CE" refers to, but it's pjrimarily an upgrade on the former Spare Air's holster. The air tank is about the same, but painted a pretty yellow color.
        F H  How long time of air does this have?
        CHAD H  The amount of time will depend on depth of course and you personal air consumtion rate. You should also realize, that your nromal airconsumption rate will most lielky only not be the case as this product is used for an emergency situation. That being said, you should be able to make a sfae asent from normal sport diving ranges with this product. There is a BIG however, to consider. I owned two of htese and returned them both as they both failed the first time they were in the water. I went to a pony bottle with an actual egulator. You can probablly bu a whole system for around $400. and I would recommend this over the Spare Air. I DO NOT rRECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. Best of luck.
