Waterproof wetsuits get starring role in new Transformers movie

Published

on

If you’re going to see Transformers 5 at the cinema soon, keep your eyes peeled for a few Waterproof W4 wetsuits! Waterproof Diving International AB in Sweden designed and delivered 25 suits for the latest Transformers movie, The Last Knight, produced by Paramount Pictures and directed by Michael Bay.

The cooperation started with an email from the costume department at Paramount Pictures:

“We will be doing extensive underwater work and are looking for the most current, cool and esthetically pleasing wetsuit options out there. Whilst browsing the internet our team came across Waterproof and loved the look of your wetsuits, particularly the W4 Men’s 5mm wetsuit”.

Lisa Lovaas chose the coolest wetsuit for their movie, the W4. Lisa is the costume designer for Transformers 5 and has participated in many large productions such as Avatar, Spiderman 2 and Jack Reacher to name a few.

The team at Waterproof were asked if they had the right capacity and experience to supply the suits for the upcoming movie. Without hesitation, made to measure W4 suits were produced for Josh Duhamel and Santiago Cabrera, two of the actors in the movie. Great feedback came after their first fitting, and director Michael Bay loved the suits. Waterproof eventually delivered 25 suits for the actors and Navy SEALs team in the movie.

Lisa Lovaas added: “I love the way the suits look… Having Waterproof create this especially designed wetsuit for the movie was amazing!”

The Waterproof team were delighted to participate in the film and enjoyed getting to look behind the scenes on a big Hollywood production. Very different from their everyday business, making high quality diving suits for the real world!

Waterproof suits are distributed in the UK and Ireland by CPS Partnership Ltd – visit their website for your nearest stockist or to find out more.

NEW: Atomic Aquatics 25 year anniversary T25 limited edition regulator

Published

on

Representing 25 years of breakthroughs and breaking rules, the Atomic Aquatics T25 limited-edition anniversary regulator is a highly evolved version of the iconic T3 all-titanium regulator.

To achieve the T25’s unparalleled durability and performance, Atomic started with solid bars of titanium alloy and precision machined them to our super-elite specs. But they didn’t stop there. To achieve radical durability, they plated the T25’s machined body with a new, proprietary diamond-like hardness coating (DLC). The result is a “burnt titanium” that’s stunningly beautiful, ultra durable and 100% unique. In fact, with its rainbow-like burnt titanium finish, each T25 is highly exclusive—and no two regulators will share the same appearance.

Divesoft introduces new Optical Display Adapter

Published

on

A new piece of diving equipment, developed and unveiled by market-leading company, Divesoft, was released at the end of June 2021, and is equipped to become you and your CCR Liberty’s newest best friend. The ODA, Optical Display Adapter, provides its users with a constant overview of the most important CCR diving data, such as information on setpoint, depth, time, decompression, and ascent rate.

Adjustable and lightweight

A full-color 428 × 240 pixel display shows the most important data for a CCR: the current loop ppO2. Furthermore, the ODA, weighing only 150g, has a built-in tilt compensated compass, which helps determine the direction you are swimming. Many parts of the ODA are adjustable, making it a highly customizable piece of equipment: you can adjust the focus of the optics to your eyesight, and the mount is also adjustable to even withstand riding a scooter.

Stay focused and charged

The ODA is connected via an ultra durable and flexible cable. Moreover, for user’s convenience, charging is not necessary as it is powered by the CCR Liberty. As for the display, the system automatically assesses the conditions and adjusts brightness based on the amount of ambient light. The high-quality sapphire glass features anti-reflective coating which ensures a clear view of the display without glare. The optical features allow simultaneous monitoring of the display and the ambient environment as the optics enlarges the miniature display.

Keeps you safe

Last but not least, a key property of the ODA is that it keeps you safe by quick warning with red flashes in case safety values are exceeded. At the same time, your diving partner is warned by the front buddy display, so you can be assisted immediately in the event of an emergency.

More details

The ODA is only compatible with Liberty 2021 Edition. More details are available on the Divesoft website under the Optical Display Adapter or you can contact Divesoft support directly via email info@divesoft.com.
