Dive Rite has redesigned their Glue-On Thigh Pocket, using their SuperFabric® brand technology XT material on the front, 1000 denier ballistic nylon on the sides, neoprene on the back, and with a contrasting heavy duty red zipper. The SuperFabric® XT material creates an armor-clad outer shell that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts, resulting in an extremely rugged pocket.

The large bellows pocket allows a diver to carry everything they need for a dive, including spools, back-up lights, lift bags or SMBs, and more. The pocket features two external quick access pockets, a red-zippered compartment on the top flap for objects such as arrows and cookies, and a hook-and-loop closure slot behind the main pocket for quick access to tables or wetnotes. The main compartment hook-and-loop closure flap is easily grabbed and opened using the { 1 in | 2.5 cm } D-ring sewn on the end.

A { 36 in | 91 cm } lanyard is included and can be attached to loops on the inside of the large compartment and tied with the knot of your choice. This allows the diver to attach tools and gear so items can be quickly deployed. A heavy duty mesh panel allows for quick draining.

The Glue-On Thigh Pocket is { 10 in x 6.0 in | 25 cm x 15 cm }, and the internal depth expands from { 0.5 in to 2.5 in | 1.3 cm to 6.4 cm }.

Please note that the pocket does not include adhesive. Our recommendation for adhesive to attach the thigh pocket, is dependent on the suit material. For use on rubber and tri-laminate composition suits, we suggest 620 Contact Adhesive. For neoprene suits we find the Aquaseal Adhesive provides the best results, although some divers just use a second application of 620 on neoprene as well.

How to Glue On Your Glue-On Pocket

Don't even think about trying to guess where to position the pocket, you have very little chance of getting even close. Take the time to put your exposure suit and your BCD on, then mark exactly where you want your pocket. The preferred location would be directly underneath and slightly above where your hand falls naturally on your thigh such that your fingers can reach completely into the bottom of the pocket. Some sidemount divers are now placing the pocket on the back of their thigh.

After marking the location, remove your exposure suit, lay it flat and prepare to attach the pocket using an adhesive. For exposure suits made of tri-laminate or vulcanized rubber you should use 620 Contact Adhesive. For 620 Contact Adhesive, use the applicator brush to evenly apply directly from the can on to the back of the pocket and also to the matching area on the suit. If your suit is neoprene, then you can use Aquaseal. For Aquaseal, using a disposable plastic knife like those found in fast food restaurants or similar instrument, evenly spread an entire 0.75 ounce tube of Aquaseal directly from the tube on to the back of the pocket.

Once the adhesive is applied, carefully place the pocket on to the exposure suit according to your markings. Put some weights, like a large stack of books, on the entire pocket. Allow it to cure for at least 24 hours, 48 is better, and resist the temptation to 'check on it'. It will be permanently attached to your exposure suit, as in you won't ever get it off again.
