If you’re like most divers, you often dream of taking a SCUBA trip to warm dive destinations during the winter season. Ever since I’ve been a diver, the months surrounding the new year are busy with friends and family traveling to get some much needed bottom time and an escape from plunging temperatures. With dive travel comes a need for luggage properly designed for carrying dive equipment, the unique shape and design of dive gear makes it non conducive to carry in normal luggage. The prepared and well traveled diver should own luggage that will properly tote and carry his dive equipment investment. Of course the crew at DRIS is ever diligent in serving the needs of divers, so with that in mind we’re going to discuss a few of our more popular pieces of dive luggage.
Curacao Clipper By Stahlsac
The Curacao Clipper by Stahlsac is a full sized dive bag that is chock full of features. The lower compartment is large enough to carry a complete dive set up, while the upper compartment is well suited to carry clothing, additional gear as well as accessories. Going further, the Curacao Clipper features a myriad of smaller pockets that will please even the most hardcore of organized travelers. The entire bag is set in a dynamic frame that is light, yet durable. All components that comprise the frame are easily serviceable in the remote event that the bag becomes damaged. The Curacao Clipper also features integrated compression straps to further secure the contents while in transit while the comfort handle allows for easy movement and removal from vehicles and storage spaces. Weighing in at 8.8 pounds, the bag itself won’t be to blame for going over airline baggage weight restrictions on your SCUBA trip!
