Protection: Diving can be a dangerous activity if you aren’t properly prepared and it’s important to know your diving safety tips, but you also need to protect yourself when you are above the water too. Sunscreen is always important for any bare skin under a hot sun.
A lot of sunscreen isn’t friendly for coral life but everything that Divehack do is with the interests of the ocean at heart. This sunscreen is going to be marine friendly and at SPF30 is going to be able to give you a high level of protection.
It’s also important to know how to clear a scuba mask and sometimes they can get fogged up. The defogger that is contained in this product is going to help prevent that from happening to ensure that you stay safe while under the water.
They also have shea butter as well which is going to be kind to your skin and help or prevent any rashes that might be caused from your equipment. These are products that aren’t critical for your safety but will really contribute to a great day out.
Treatment: There are times when you are out diving where you are going to get slightly hurt and need a little treatment. Obviously any serious issues will be treated by a medical professional but for the little scrapes, this set can be brilliant.
One area that it can help with is if you get any stings as there are anti-sting gel included to help take that horrible feeling away from the spot where you have been stung. It’s a very useful feature but one that you hopefully won’t have to use.
There are also band aids too that are going to help treat any small cut that you have. It can be hard trying to remember to bring all these items when you have to think about your scuba tanks and the rest and therefore this set can make sure that you never forget your other essentials.
Safety: It’s great to have a checklist to make sure that you have everything in your dive bag and The Ready Set really helps with that too. It also has refresher cards that are going to be able to give you some key information whenever you need it.
There is also space available for your safety certificates to prevent you from forgetting your key information. When you have The Ready Set with you, you are going to be confident that you have everything that you need to enjoy a stress-free day of diving.
There are many people who get a little stressed when they are trying to prepare for a day out. That sensation of feeling like you have forgotten something can be a horrible one, especially when you get to your destination and realize that you actually have.
Sometimes though it’s not about forgetting an item, it’s about replacing something that is broken. The Ready Set comes with a replacement O-ring to prevent you from having to end your dive early if your existing one needs replacing.
Extras: There is also a list of great extras with this set too. One of the impressive things about Divehack is how dedicated they are to making sure that divers leave a clean environment behind and help to improve the environment that they are in.
For that reason, The Ready Set comes with a cleanup bag that will help you pick any litter that might be floating around. That allows you to do your bit for the environment and leave with the place even cleaner than when you found it.
There is also a pointer stick too that can be useful for a number of reasons including letting other divers see what you’re looking at, disturbing less of an area, being able to anchor yourself and also for safety too as you might need to prevent attack for bang on your tank for attention.
As well as those items, there is also an elastic band in the set and a carabiner too. They are two very different items but two that have a whole range of different uses and will be used time and time again for a wide variety of different tasks.
