Faber cylinders for the US market are manufactured in Italy and imported to the US via containerized sea freight. Availability of Faber cylinders has been erratic, affected by issues with both manufacturing capacity and transport. Currently the best information we have is our orders for Faber steel cylinders do not have an ETA. Use the "Notify me..." link with the individual cylinder for an immediate email when we receive our order.

Prices for double cylinder and manifold packages do NOT include free shipping.

The LP-85's are a popular configuration for smaller stature open water divers. LP-85's are also preferred for their trim characteristics when sidemounting. A complete Double Cylinder Package from Dive Gear Express consists of: two cylinders, premium quality manifold with isolator, premium quality bands and bolts, left and right manifold port plugs. We also include tank boots on the steel LP-85 tanks for use when setup as singles, but boots are not normally installed on doubles sets and therefore not always illustrated in our photos. The cylinders each have a current month Nitrox Ready decal. If you switch between backmount doubles and twin sidemount cylinders with left and right valves, then add Dive Rite Sidemount Travel straps to easily switch to a pair of sidemount singles.

† Our shop evidence of inspection 3" X 6" dated decal (aka "VIP sticker") states "this cylinder and valve are suitable for service with compressed gases containing greater than 23.5% oxygen." That means the cylinder and valve, prior to initial use, are oxygen clean and oxygen compatible. If you plan to use this cylinder with gases containing more than 40% oxygen then the upgrade to our DGX Premium Oxygen Valve is suggested. The standard DGX valves offered with this cylinder package include 5250 psi pressure relief devices (aka "burst disks") suitable for service pressures up to 3500 psi. If you would prefer a different pressure rating please make a note in the Special Instructions dialog box at checkout.

Due to weight restrictions our doubles packages ship as individual components ready-to-assemble: two cartons containing the cylinders and boots with modular valves (including port plugs) installed in the cylinders hand tight along with a third carton containing the manifold crossbar, bands and bolt kit, two loose Evidence of Inspection decals (aka VIP stickers.). You will need to assemble the package yourself prior to filling or if you prefer arrange for a local dive shop to assemble them for a fee. Assembling a set of doubles yourself is easy if you follow our detailed assembly instructions.

After diving with HP 100's and LP 95's and finding them to be too heavy for my wing I finally settles with the LP 85's and I couldn't be happier. Super easy to set up and cant wait to get years and years of use from them!

Just dove these this weekend. The trim is considerably better than AL80s. About the customer service piece. When I received these items, the crossbar for the manifold had been damaged during shipping. When I communicated this to Dive Gear Express customer service with photos included, I got a same day response indicating that they would ship out a new one immediately. I received the replacement crossbar two days later in time to use the doubles for the dives that I had planned that weekend. Top-notch product and service!

How to Select a SCUBA Tank

Our factual but easy-to-read article helps you make this big decision by giving you information on:

  • Aluminum tanks versus steel tanks
  • Low-pressure tanks versus high-pressure tanks
  • Tank paints, coatings, and finishes
  • Tank dimensions and capacity recommendations

For details read How to Select a SCUBA Tank.

SCUBA Tanks must be hydrostatically tested every five years (60 months). We always ship Faber cylinders with a current hydro test date. Due to manufacturing and import cycles, the popular sizes of Faber cylinders typically have a factory hydro date less than 12 months old. However less popular sizes of Faber cylinders may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured and imported less frequently.

Our cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS neck threads, NOT Metric M25 neck threads, and the valves have overpressure relief devices. The cylinders have US DOT and Canadian CTC markings suitable for use only in North America. Our cylinders and valves are NOT CE approved and NOT suitable for use in the European Union. Cylinders are NOT marked appropriately for use in Australia and New Zealand.
