  1. Glue On Pocket

    Installed easily, but: Wait for at LEAST 36 hrs (maybe 48) before taking the weights off the pocket. Seemed a bit pricey at first but it is actually three pockets (one is even zippered.) Holds a spare mask, spare (small) dive light, and a sausage easily. "Like."

  2. Nice pocket, wish it had a zipper instead of velcro.

    I chose the neoprene-backed glue-on pocket because when attached with Seal-Cement (neoprene glue) it can be removed with solvent if I upgrade the wetsuit. It works fine, but I prefer zippers over velcro, so it would be nice if they sold a glue-on version with zipper. Next time I’ll probably glue-on the cordura backed zipper pockets with AquaSeal (after cutting off the straps), even though that’s permanent.

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 G-glue. For G-glue, use the applicator brush to evenly apply the contents of a 1.0 ounce bottle of G-glue directly from the bottle on to the back of the pocket. 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.
