  • Both Orange and Yellow for maximum visibility
  • Offers three methods of inflation - Oral, BC, Regulator
  • {65 in | 165 cm} long by {8 in | 20.3 cm} wide
  • Top strap provides attachment point for a strobe
  • Includes additional pocket at the base for small items

The two-color Dive Alert™ SMB includes a additional pocket at the base of the tube to store small items such as a finger spool, slate, marking light or strobe. The pocket may also be used to add a lead block weight for more stability in rough water.

The two-color SMB also offers three methods of inflation: oral inflation, BC inflator hose, or you may choose to use your second stage regulator. It has a one-way duckbill baffle closed base, which prevents air from releasing at the surface. You may inflate the SMB on the surface OR at depth because an over-pressure valve (OPV) prevents over-inflation and also allows for rapid deflation when required. The nylon strap at the top provides an attachment point for a light or slate and two strips of reflective tape across the top significantly increase visibility.

The SMB is {65 in | 165 cm} long by {8 in | 20.3 cm} wide and although it should not be used as a lift bag it has approximately {40 lbs | 18.1 kgs} of buoyancy. Constructed of durable 400 denier polyurethane coated nylon material in high visibility orange color on one side with yellow color on the opposite side and includes two vecro straps to retain a tidy compact roll for storage.

What Color is Your Parachute Bag?

Studies done in the transportation sector prove the best color for high visibility worker clothing is fluorescent safety orange because that color is the most visible from the greatest distance. A fluorescent yellow-green color, while not as visible at distance, offers better night visibility and is also a better choice for signage because it provides more contrast for lettering.

Some groups of divers have informally assigned meaning to bag color. Shooting an orange bag or marker is supposed to indicate a normal situation to surface support. The appearance of a yellow color may mean that the diver has an abnormal situation and requires assistance from the surface. However, there is no color standard along with considerable confusion about color.

Our recommendations: If visibility is most important, then orange is proven by far to be the best color choice for distance visibility during daylight hours. Choose yellow for night visibility, or for a day and night compromise we offer a marking tube that is yellow on one side and orange on the other. We respectfully suggest reconsidering any dive plan which depends on the color of a bag to signal for help.
