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.

XS Scuba Multi-Tool Dive Gear Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on XS Scuba Multi-Tool Dive Gear Review Posted in: Below $100, Dive Knives, Other Accessories

The Multi-Tool from XS is basically a Leatherman for scuba divers, and therefore a must-have item for dive shop owners, staff and any diver who maintains his own gear and likes diving independently. It’s easy to see where an auto hobbyist might want the XS Scuba multi-tool as well. The tool has three hex nut wrenches of just the right size for tasks like removing regulator port plugs or screwing in an air cylinder adapter. The tool also has an o-ring pick, an inflator Schrader valve tool, and an assortment of screwdrivers, including an orifice flat screwdriver and a valve nut screwdriver. It is made from stainless steel, and when you consider that the closest a tool like this should ever come to the water is being on a dive boat or dropped into a rinsing tank, that is good enough to make it virtually corrosion-proof. In the opinion of Dive Gear Reviews, the only thing missing is the two-pronged key that is necessary to open the battery compartment of some older dive computer designs, such as the Aeris XR-1).
