Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Hollis DC3/212 Scuba Regulator Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Hollis DC3/212 Scuba Regulator Review Posted in: Over $500, Scuba Regulators

This Hollis scuba regulator package combines their DC3 first stage and their 212 second stage. The DC3 ensures the consistent delivery of gas at any depth through it’s overbalanced diaphragm, while the 212 uses Hollis’ Dynamic Adjustment system to maintain inhalation effort. By combining these two components, this regulator delivers steady breathing throughout a dive, from 25 feet down to 140 feet and back up to 25. Topping off its breathing performance, the Hollis DC3/212 earned very high scores on ANSTI machine tests, rivaling the best regulators on the market. The second stage also has a dive/predive switch, and the mouthpiece stays dry in all positions and comfortable on long dives. The DC3/212 is compatible with Nitrox mixtures of up to 40% oxygen.

Average cost: $555
