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.

SEAC DX200 Scuba Regulator Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on SEAC DX200 Scuba Regulator Review Posted in: Over $500, Scuba Regulators

The SEAC DX200 was a 2014 release that raised a few eyebrows by making Sport Diver‘s annual Best Regs list for two years, 2015 and 2016, in a row. This was because it combined a lightweight, travel-friendly design with a robust, scratch-resistant package and mechanical durability.

The breathing-resistance controller is easy to manipulate, even with gloves on. You can even see it when you look at the SEAC DX200, mounted as it is to the user’s left and fairly big relative to the second stage as a whole. The first stage is a forged brass, balanced diaphragm job, and insulated from the water. Overall it’s a compact, lightweight design, especially in the second stage, and one that belies its own toughness.

Price: $550
