Perfect size

By Beth

This is a nice size and fits nicely in my BC pocket. I also like the fact that it is both a traditional and magnetic slate.

not what I expected

it was too cumbersome to manage underwater. Lots of plastic and not a lot of writing space.

Only sliced bread is better

By Michael S.

from Southeast, TX, US

I have owned two of these for about 15 years. After considerable usage, I have finally nearly worn out one of them, which I am now replacing. I think because of being stored in the wrong place. My only regret is that it only comes in black or yellow. My wife likes the blue one. She and I use them to "talk" underwater when necessary. It virtually eliminates miscommunication while below. The slate side is great for reminders and other "permanent" messages. This is a MUST for DMs.


Nice sized


Great size fits my bc's pocket, having the ability to erase and rewrite on the tablet page and also be able to write a permanent note on the slate side


Easy to read

By Mario G.

from San Antonio, TX, US

This product is a must for dive masters. It's easy to read and you can write notes that stay on the pad on the opposite side. Nice tool and clips on to BCD out of the way. Dive partners like it as well.

Works Great

By Scott R.

I've used it now on about 5 dives and it works great. I can't comment on how it lasts, but I like it. It's small enough to fit in my BC pocket. I haven't used the traditional slate side yet, just the magnet side. It's big enough to get an abbreviated sentance on it.


Small, all you need in one, Love it !

By Scuba T.

It is compact, can easily fit into most BC pockets, or hang very nicely off a BC clip. Best of both - pencil or magnetic writer. I teach and its is great communication tool. I purchased three. One for me, and one for each of my kids (age 10 and 12 yrs) They love it too !!


Good small slate

By Beth d.

Great little slate that fits into a pocket and you can write a brief message to your buddy then stow away quickly.


Good Size, Great Slate

By Arnold

This is the slate being used a lot for instruction, and doing exactly what a slate is for - communicating! Fits well in BC pocket, probably better than full-size Quest slate. coiled lanyard great. dual writing surfaces great.


Does the Job


This works great with certification classes - big enough to give instructions and quick to erase, and small enough to fit in BC pocket, better than large Quest slate. Like the dual writing surfaces, and the coiled lanyard clip.


Compact Easy to Use

By bubbleblower

Be gentle when removing the pencil/stylus from it's slot as the holder is somewhat fragile


Nice Slate

By Scuba T.

This is a nice little slate and it is the perfect size to fit in my bcd pocket. Other reviewers complained about the pencil clip breaking right away but I've had it for a while and had no problem but I'm not rough with my gear.


Just One Thing...

By Kim

I was looking for a slate to use with my students, as well as when I'm diving "for fun" and thought I'd found the perfect solution... small enough to fit in your BC pocket, erases underwater - the only "bad" thing I can say is the clip for the pencil on the back of the slate broke on the 2nd dive... not sure if it was due to the pressure at depth or what the problem was... I bought one for my dive buddy, too - and he had the same problem... It's still a great product, but would be perfect if they could come up with a better way to stow the pencil...


Love my "Quest" mini slate

By Causual d.

Able to communicate with dive buddy. I can make comments on things we're seeing and then on the reverse side I'm able to right notes that I want to keep until after we're done diving for the day.


Perfect size

By Bobby J.

Great size/weight/functionality. I question the durability of the writing instrument connection.


Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
VIRGINIA R  Great size. Works great. Replaced an old one that got crunched.
Shopper  Dimension of the magnetic screen?
KEVIN F  The magnetic screen is 4" x 3.5". The biggest problem for me has been trying to find a low profile way of attaching it to my BC. Good luck...!
Michael S  I hook it with a coiled latch and then tuck it in the cummerbund of my BCD.
CORNELIUS B  My dive gear is packed away at the present, but I Googled and found the overall size is 6 1/2"x4 3/4"x1/2". The screen itself is about 4"x3" Hope that helps.
Janice S  Is that really enough room to write a few words? I can't decide if I should get the larger or the smaller. Thank you for screen measurement.Enter a reply to CORNELIUS B.
Shopper  dimensions of the mini quest slate?
SALLY V  The dimensions are roughly 8" x 6". It fits nicely into an average size BCD pocket. I recommend getting a lanyard of some sort to tether it to your BCD. Our teenage daughters love to "text" on them underwater!
LESTER R  I bought this product because of the ease of use.I have several different slates different sizes , i find this slate use full . The size and convience of the magnetic capablity is a pleasure.
Joseph B  The mini Qwest slate is 5 1/2 in x 6 1/2 in and easily fits in most BC pockets. It is durable, easy to write on, and easy to read underwater in daylight. For situations when hand signals won't cut it, this slate works well. I am an Instructor and use it often to communicate underwater with my students. I definately recommend it!
SCOTT W  The Mini Quest measures in at 6.5" x 5.75" x 1.25". It fits snuggly in my Oceanic Probe BCD pocket, when fully inflated, it's a bit tight, but I wouldn't trade it for anything smaller.The features on this slate are probably the best I've seen or used.
JACK S  6.25 " x 5.5" x 1.25" thick
