Stahlsac Introduces the Steel Line



stahlsacAs the only watersport company dedicated exclusively to top quality adventure luggage, Stahlsac has created an all-new line of bags designed to meet the needs of any outdoor enthusiast that participates in gear-intensive and water-related actives.

The Steel Line offers 5 bags to choose from, ranging from big and roomy to small and versatile. The exclusive wet/dry storage system, bright interior lining for visibility, and multiple separated compartments, make it easy to store your gear safely and securely. And while they can be purchased separately, the bags work best as a full set, with one for every occasion.

Stahlsac_SteelLine_PressRelease-300x167“The features are what really set these bags apart,” says Christoph Palmanshofer, Brand Manager for Stahlsac. “While all of our luggage is tough, durable, and backed by our limited lifetime guarantee, the Steel Line has added conveniences like our exclusive Wet/Dry System or the multi-purpose Changing Pad. The heavy-duty construction as well as the strategic reinforcement of stress points make them not only ideal for a Diver, but for any adventurer.”

While some features are model-specific, like the multi-purpose changing pad, detachable dry- bag, and a convenient “add-a-bag” strap, all of the bags boast easy-access zippers, a bright interior lining for visibility and the tough, reliable construction you’ve come to expect from Stahlsac.

“Our passion is to build the best bags we can possibly build,” says Palmanshofer. “Stahlsac was founded on a commitment to quality and meticulous attention to detail, and we created the Steel Line of bags as an embodiment of those values. These bags are very unique, and with their watersport-specific design and tough construction they set themselves apart from anything else on the market. We’re very excited to be able to offer them to our fellow divers and adventurers.”

The Steel Line includes Roller Travel Bags in 34 inch, 27 inch, and 22 inch Carry-On; as well as a Backpack and Duffel.

Jeff chats to… Sean Webb, Director of O’Three, about diving in the UK and the O’Three brand



In this exclusive Zoom interview, Jeff Goodman, Scubaverse Editor-at-Large, chats to Sean Webb, Director of O’Three, the well-known UK-based manufacturer of custom drysuits and wetsuits.

After a bath time quarrel with his sister, Sean’s Mum taught him a lesson.

She held his head underwater for what she thought was long enough for that lesson to sink in (We are talking the mid 60’s here), but the lesson learned wasn’t the one that was intended. It was then that Sean realized he was comfortable, in or under the water. He was six.

The coasts of Devon and Dorset became his playground. 17 years later, with a trip around the world and some incredible diving under his belt, Sean Webb founded O’Three.

Now in its 32nd  year, O’Three has evolved from a business with roots that are unashamedly rooted in UK diving, to a niche brand being enjoyed all over the world by discerning recreational, technical and commercial divers alike.

Fourth Element release new freediving suit



For 20 years fourth element have been pioneers of underwater thermal protection, experience they now bring to freediving.

Designed for recreational freediving, their new RF collection uses a optimum combination of Glideskin, Smoothskin and lined neoprene to maximise your freedom in the water, allowing you to focus on your breath, visualise and reach your limit.

The 3/2mm RF1 suit is easy to don, yet effectively sealed by Smoothskin seals at the wrists, ankles and neck. A ‘black-out’ zipper and robust inner linings ensure that this suit is more versatile than open cell suits, but water ingress is minimised keeping you warmer for longer.

Glideskin panels over the shoulders and along the legs give excellent stretch, improving fit and hydrodynamics, while subtle knee protection and more durable linings elsewhere ensure that this suit is practical for freediving in many environments.

The RF1 suit can be combined with the new RF vest to enhance thermal protection. This creates 6mm on the critical torso area and 3mm protection for the head, keeping suit flush to a minimum without adding restrictive bulk.
