    Extras that you may want to include:

    • Defog – why not make your own? Grab an old spray bottle, give it a good wash out and mix a little baby shampoo with water and you’ve got home made defog! Alternatively if you don’t have a spare spray bottle lying around you can pop some toothpaste in. Make sure its a white paste rather than a gel.
    • Batteries – for your dive computer/torch/strobe/camera
    • Clips or carabineers
    • Copy of your dive insurance (a handy tip is to print your insurance details – policy number, emergency contact number, and laminate it)
    • First Aid Kit
    • Motion sickness pills
    • Wrist and neck seals if your dry suit has the Si-Tech system

    Now you’ve got it all together, where do you store it? In a sealed dry box. We find the essentials fit perfectly in a mask box!
