    p.s. do you worry about having a nice checked diving logo suitcase/bag? It may be targeted? So ive read. I really would like a nice diving suitcase/bag but havent yet due to that thought.

    ignore this post i just read your answer several times below. dive insurance and no probs in 30 yrs. cool beans man!

    Love the bag inside your check bag to just grab clothes out real quick as another carry on if overweight. What a headache solving idea. Also love the idea of an extra set of clothes always in carryon. I personally stuff all my diving gear in a backpack for carry on in case they do lose my stuff. i carry on my bcd both dive computers, both face masks, my regulator, 3 mil suit, and my diving knife.
    Ok not the diving knife. but all the other stuff actually fits in my backpack. Love it. Go to philippines and mexico and no problems with any of that stuff ever. Some people say its a headache carrying on regs etc. Ive never seen it. thanks again for the vids.

    What’s up with the “spear pole”? Are you one of those divers who scubas and spearfishes at the same time?

  7. Clinton Pearcy says

    Pretty sure a razor is good in a carry on now days… unless you're a straight razor kinda guy.

  8. Robert Short says

    Problem with the weight of the carry on is most Asian airlines (Eva, Korean, Asiana etc.) going to Asia limit the weight to 7 kilos (15 lbs.).

    I'm totally going to buy one of those dive hangers for my motorcycle jacket as it rains a lot where I am and I travel a ton for work.

    That said, my last dive trip kind of sucked as I rented my gear and it didn't really work for me (I couldn't seem to get the hang of the configuration quickly enough to really feel comfortable). Kind of hoping for a portable solution so I can bring my own stuff (I don't own a car, just a motorcycle, so portable is the name of the game for me).

    Ever since 1950, when Mares was founded by Italian free diving champion Ludovico Mares, the company has been at the forefront of diving technology. His considerable experience as a diver during World War II and his innate manual skill transformed his passion for diving into a leading business that has opened the undersea world to millions of enthusiasts around the globe. So the name's pronounce is not MOIRIS like you always say in your video but MARES a like in arc; and e like in elegant just for your info !!!

    I need tips on packing all my personal clothing in one small backpack like you've done:)

    I'm not too comfortable travelling with a bag that is obviously scuba related, much as I like to advertise my hobbies. Mostly concerned about theft…

    Ever considered taking the BC in the carry-on? For a pool session once I managed to fit snorkelling fins, reg, BP/W, shorty and mask into a 35ltr backpack that I always have as carry-on. It might be useful for saving weight for a heavier suit in the checked bag (7mm or dry) and you may even be able to take a steel plate instead to go with that suit.

    Nice video! Ive learned a lot. I will pack my bags now in a new way. Did you ever have problems with the MARES sign on the bags? Like the airline wants you to pay the luggage
    because it is diving equipment? I´ve learned that you're luggage and your clothing style should be a neutral as possible that you don't get into any bad surprises during check-in.
    Some airline also ask you to pre-announce if you're having sport equipment with you. I really like the big Mares bag and the cruise journey but the logos could make check-in difficult.

    Nice rig – I would have NEVER guessed you were a Mares shop…LOL.  They should pay you a royalty.   Why is ScubaPro so popular? (I feel they have good quality – I have a MK25-S600) but I feel the quality is not better than others.  Especially if you look at the premium price of SP.

  16. Donald Rogers says

    Nice video and timely. Packing kit for Domincan Republic today. Hadn't thought of breaking down regulators. Thanks

    How do you put your scissors on your BCD?
