Great lift bag, lasted a long time

I've had the 100 pound lift version of this bag for over 5 years and it's still going strong. I primarily use it to teach Search and Recovery, but have had other occations where it's come in handy to retrieve lost items. My only complaints are pretty minor: First, the dump valve started to separate from the bag, but some heavy-duty silicon sealant and innovative sewing with a very thin nylon line has kept it going. Second, the flimsy storage strap that comes with it (plastic with velcro) s...

Larger bags have a major weak point.

I bought two of the 100# Quad Bags to use in Search & Recovery Classes I teach. These bags are doing the job now (after modification/repair mentioned below), but they have a fairly major weak point. The oral inflators on these bags are both a hindrance to storage and deployment, and they leak. The oral inflator part is simply glued on to the outside of the bag, no stitching or bonding of any sort. Both of mine leaked at the install point the first time used. I ended up removing the oral ...

Multi Purpose Lift Bag

By GEORGE P.

It's Subsalve - great product - great addition to gear

 

Excellent

By scott

Excellent lift bag. Little bulky when rolled up, but this is because it is so well made.

 

Great lift bag, lasted a long time

By DANA K.

I've had the 100 pound lift version of this bag for over 5 years and it's still going strong. I primarily use it to teach Search and Recovery, but have had other occations where it's come in handy to retrieve lost items. My only complaints are pretty minor: First, the dump valve started to separate from the bag, but some heavy-duty silicon sealant and innovative sewing with a very thin nylon line has kept it going. Second, the flimsy storage strap that comes with it (plastic with velcro) seems to be a couple inches too short, so I fit it with my own bungee cord to hold it together underwater. However, for the price, this a phenomenal lift bag.

 

Bought one. Bought three more.

By LLOYD D.

Looking forward to using them. [...]

 

good buy

By Memo D.

I have used it and it worked perfect, it is a good buy

 

All purpose left bag

By Bill

used it from 130 ft when the mooring line broke on the wreck, boat did not know but spotted the bag and realized what had happened. Gave me the chance for a safe accent and not to get swept off the wreck.

 

Great product

By Big J.

This is my second lift bag from this company Subsalve and great service on the first one(smaller size).

 

great to have on any boat just in case!

By Diesel

Strap it to your leg when you go diving becaus you never know what you will find

 

Small bag has no OPV limits lift bag use

By JEREMY B.

First, I have previously purchased a large (~100 lb) bag. It works great, always has, and I've used it many times hoisting anchors, crab pots, and even carying many burlap bags full of underwater trash (during a beach cleanup project). I wanted another bag, but the small one, as I'd like it to be my surface marker at the end of my dives. The small (~25 lb) bag is about as long as the large bag, but much narrower. The bag is contructed well and is hearty, *except* for the oral inflator. Like another commentor said, it's simply glued on the exterior of the bag. My bag arrived with the oral inflator _already halfway detached_. As I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning it, I employed some aquaseal after scuffing the surface of the bag and the bottom of the inflator. One day later and it's better than new. In fact, it's attached so well, I'd suggest this to the manufacturer. I've deployed it on a half dozen dives so far and it's not worse for wear. My big beef with the small bag is that it doesn't have an over-pressure valve. This means that it is NO GOOD as a lift bag. You need to have the ability to release air as you ascend, lest you have a run-away ascent. There's no way to do this with the small bag. Thankfully, I didn't want to use this as a lift bag but as a surface marker, so it works great for my use. -just not as a lift bag, which is what it is supposed to be. Don't get the small bag thinking you'll be able to use it as a lift bag, unless the item you're lifting is the same weight as the maximum buoyancy of the bag (~25 lbs), otherwise, you'll be in for a surprise as you ascend.

 

So good my CD wanted to steal it!

By Jay I.

easy to use, well marked, good material, even my course director liked it so much he wanted to steal it!

 

Subsalve Quality is for sure

By pirateeye

Very compact bag useable on every dive. Also makes a pretty cool dry bag..

 

It works

By Bobo

Great all purpose bag that is nice and compact. Very easy to use and store. The Graphics do tend to wear quickly, especially where it folds, but this does not effect it's function.

 

Nice lift bag

By Stow D.

This is a nice general purpose lift bag. While it can be used as a dry bag, the opening is a bit small for that, although it can be done. For the price, this is a nice all-around product. Seems to be constructed pretty solid so I would recommend this item.

 

A good lift bag

By UART d.

A great lift bag with decent capacity. Doubles as a nice float with the words "diver below" and a dive flag on it.

 

Multipurpose Bag with a bonus

By DIGITAL I.

The fact that this bag can be used in several different ways should put it at the top of your list of MUST HAVE items when you're diving. The vinyl coated nylon is tough and endures alot more strain than other manufacturer's lift bags. This adds some weight but its neglible. The waterproof closure works extremely well. My only gripe is that the only way this bag works as a lift bag or SMB is if you actually use the closure. Forget to click the buckle and you'll have salvage dropping on your head because this bag dumps air very easily at the surface. It would also be nice if an ID tag would be included that you could write data on to inform people at the surface.

the outer lining is super tough and withstands a lot of abuse. the overall size of the bag could be a bit larger but for simple low weight lifts, this will do.

How to fill with air ?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: By using your Octo, or tilt your head and lineup the exhaust Tee of your regulator with the bottom of the bag and exhale several times quickly. The latter medhod is prefered by Tec Divers.
What are the dimensions of the bags?
JackM on Feb 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It did not come in a triangular shape as is pictured. It already has been patched once since I have had it. I would guess it is about 8 inches across and a single tube like a safety sausage. It was about 3 feet long.
Do you have dimensions of bags when in storage pouch?
RUSSELL D on Nov 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: imagine a half used roll of paper towels that someone sat on. Its 13.5in in width, (width of the bag) 4.5in deep (determined by the way the valve is folded into the bag) 1.5-2in in thickness. It doesnt come in storage pouch, there is a strap with a velcro end that attaches to itself to keep it in this smashed cylindrical shape. This can still be tucked into a backplate pocket with a little work. You wont be able to stuff it in while diving unless you remove your BCD
Does this bag have a dump valve on it?
A shopper on May 24, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a dump valve.
