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.

Tryton Drylite Underwater Flashlight

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Tryton Drylite Underwater Flashlight Posted in: Between $101-$250, Dive Lights

It’s expensive, but the Drylite promises to be the ultra-reliable dive light. It lives up to the “dry” part of its name, because the entire flashlight unit is completely sealed at the factory. If you keep it within its depth limits (which at 300 feet/91 m would be hard to breach), it should never, ever leak because you can’t disassemble it. The Drylite is rechargeable, so all that it ever needs is to be plugged into the wall. The unit uses a 3 watt LED bulb with a respectbale 135 Lumen output, and is light and handy.

Although expensive, it’s tough and reliable. Scuba Gear Reports called it a “game changer,” and owners love it. A casual and infrequent diver might not want or need something this expensive and reliable, but anyone who goes into wrecks, caves, or makes frequent and regular night dives might want a light they can count on, and keep counting on down the years.

Average Price: $130
