  1. Light Monkey Glue-On Thigh Pocket

    There are great pockets for recreational or DIR diving and I have them installed on two wetsuits and possibly a third if I buy a new drysuit. In the past, I've owned Halcyon and DUI pockets but prefer these due to their size, durability, flexibility, ease of access and ability to dry fast. For DIR diving, you can easily store your all you traditional gear and then some. I generally carry wetnotes w/maps, a spare mask, a SMBs and reel , a spare double ender, a go-pro and small gray slate for white balance. With a scooter I'll also carry an additional SMB and reel along and, if needed, cookies and arrows for cave or two stobes for wreck . The internal against-the-leg compartment inside the main compartment makes it easy to store you wetnotes on one leg and the gray slate on the other. All that gear and the size of the pocket may seem bulky, but if you have proper trim, you'll only notice it and feel it on land and not in the water. Under the water, the raised lip on the flap and the size of the pockets makes finding your pocket and storing your gear fast and easy. No more struggling with managing equipment underwater to get everything back in your pockets and securing the flap.

    I had some postage challenges, but now I’ve got the pocket and had a good look at it, I’m pretty impressed. It’s massive. Fit’s 2 x DSMBs with reels attached and a backup mask in the one pocket. You could also fit wet notes in the back pocket and a mirror/line markers etc in the zip pocket on the flap. I haven’t used it yet but the quality looks top notch as well. Overall really pleased with it.

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. Next, remove your exposure suit, lay it flat and prepare to attach the pocket. For exposure suits made of tri-laminate or vulcanized rubber you should use whatever adhesive is recommended by the suit manufacturer. If your suit is neoprene, then you can use Aquaseal and the following instructions.

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. Next, 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.
