Dive Bag for 2
« on: 12 Dec 12, 00:14 »
Hi guys, need a recommendation for a dive bag for 2 full sets of equipment.

Fins, reg, oxycheq bcd, wetsuit & mask.

Prefer a roller type one.

Thanks!

There are various types of roller bag depending on your preference & budget. Personally, i'm using Scubapro Caravan for all my travels - local, overseas, rec, tec, 1 - 2 divers + personal stuff. Been serving me well all this while.

Happy hunting & shopping!

Have you weighed all the gear, for two people you might be over the airline weight limit. 

I use a plain hard side rolling suitcase, no stickers or markings to temp thieves.  Got cheap a few years ago, now its in need of replacement. 

A large suitcase might work if your not flying, watch for sales.

My gear goes into an old, beat up Samsonite suitcase. Doesn't attract attention.

With a full set of gear including Oceanic Geo BCD, fins, wetsuit, mask, SMB etc. + clothes for a dive trip, it all weighs about 25 kg.

Note that airlines will have a weight limit for 32 kg for any single piece of luggage.


I hand carry regulators and camera.

I have had good success with Akona gear bags...should work great for you... I never used them for airline travel so cannot comment on how well they hold up for that....

I suggest hand carrying your regs for obvious reasons...
