FAQ ON EXPOSURE GEAR

None of the impact protection helmets include pre-drilled holes or mounting brackets. Many divers free up their hands by using the helmets as a platform to attach backup lights, primary lights and even action cameras. However, doing so will degrade the head impact protection benefit of the helmet.

If you want to use the helmet as just a platform and not for impact protection, then customizing your helmet is an easy "do-it-yourself" assembly project. Select a mount appropriate for the device you wish to attach along with hardware to affix the mount to the helmet. Then you will need to experiment to determine the right location for the mount considering how you adjust the headband size and wear the helmet. Finally, drill the holes and assemble the mount on your customized helmet.

We must caution that the manufacturer has affixed a warning label on the helmet specifically recommending against any form of modifications to the helmet in order to maintain the integrity of the impact protection.

We stock accessories such as seals and gloves, but we do not sell the exposure suits themselves on our website. In our long experience the sizing guides from all the exposure suit manufacturers, drysuit and wetsuit, are not reliable enough to make the final selection of a product for which fit has so much importance and yet is so subjective. The variety of undergarments further complicate the process of determining the suit size. Exposure suits are a product for which there is no substitution for try on and in-store fitting advice.

If it is time to replace your existing suit from Dive Rite, DUI or OMS and you already know your size, please Contact Us to discuss a special order.

Most drysuit inflation valves used in recreational diving can accept a standard BC quick disconnect inflator hose, but need a longer length. For drysuit divers, where the hose routes under their arm to a chest mounted power-inflator, the typical length is {30 in | 76 cm} or sometimes {36 in | 91 cm} depending on the locations of the power-inflator relative to the first stage supply. However, most drysuit divers prefer a quick disconnect fitting with a wide flange that makes it easier to get a positive lock with the inflation fitting. To provide this popular drysuit inflation solution, we recommend our EZ-ON Quick Disconnect Adapter that works with any standard low-pressure regulator hose.

The DGX and Dive Rite inflation regulators are both compact ultra-reliable piston designs but differ significantly in performance and size of their first stages. The Dive Rite inflation package has an exceptionally compact first stage, but is an unbalanced design suitable only for inflation applications at sport depths. The DGX inflation package has a balanced piston first stage with a value price, featuring better performance with full depth compensation that makes it appropriate for deeper diving and other applications. The Dive Rite package includes a {30 in | 76 cm} long rubber drysuit hose and the DGX package includes a braided flex hose in a choice of length that features our EZ-ON quick disconnect. The DGX package also includes a small pressure gauge.
