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.

Subgear Cayman Scuba Regulator Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Subgear Cayman Scuba Regulator Review Posted in: Over $500, Scuba Regulators

Subgear’s Cayman is an inexpensive regulator with a truly staggering gas-moving capability. Lab tests showed it capable of delivering air under high demand circumstances at depths of 225 feet. The big venturi control knob is easy to manipulate, even while wearing thick neoprene gloves, and it is located right in front of the mouthpiece rather than in some recess on the bottom of the second stage. The 2 HP and 4 LP ports are enough to support plenty of gear, and the regulator is compatible with up to 100% Nitrox. As the Cayman is made by a German company, it has a dry chamber and is well-suited for use in cold water environments. Overall, the Subgear Cayman is a tough, reasonably priced scuba regulator. Scuba Diving magazine gave it a Tester’s Choice in 2010.

Average Price: $450
