Gear Review : Cressi Logica Wetsuit

Gear Review : Cressi Logica Wetsuit

The CRESSI Logica Wetsuit Review I really like this new version of the Cressi Logica, it's a 5mm "almost semi-dry" suit that is made of super stretch neoprene. The suit has semi dry seals around the ankle and wrists and it has a great seal on the back zip. This is the suit I have been using as part of my personal gear this year and I have found it to be very comfortable and easy to get on and off. When you first try it on it feels almost like a 6 / 7mm suit but you don't need...

Gear Review : Cressi Back Jac BCD

Gear Review : Cressi Back Jac BCD

The CRESSI Back Jac BCD Review   This is a great all-rounder BCD, it's back inflate, has integrated weight pockets and ideally positioned somewhere in between a hard wearing everyday and light weight travel BCD. This is the BCD I use as part of my own personal gear and I have done about 50 dives in the unit and found it very comfortable while diving and I have dived it in both cold and warm water environments.  When diving in my dry suit I have it at its maximum strap extension but it fits great in warm tropical waters where I'm diving...
