Good
Review by diverjeff (Posted on 10/28/14)
This Alternate air source is good
Solid performance and low profile small and light both good for travel
Once you get the hang and feel of BC inflate deflate its cool but you do need to get used to what the feel of inflate deflate buttons
with my Biolite which in my opinion is the best travel BC around the AirX2 rocks for travel
One less hose
Review by Rocket (Posted on 5/27/14)
Ive had my airxs2 for almost a decade. Recently picked one up for my son's bcd.
It works as designed - Its not a primary reg, but for emergency use. The key with this is to practice with your buddy in shallow water first.
The ergonomics take some getting use to so you don't accidentally press the purge button while deflating or inflating. Again, practice makes it easier. I simply pull the corrugated hose to vent air instead of the deflate button.
Bottomline, one less hose and you know where your alt air source is..not dragging or hanging up on the bottom.
7 yrs & still loving my gear
Review by Work@Dive (Posted on 4/27/14)
I was sad to see the previous post. I am a woman (with small hands and Rheumatoid Arthritis); it was a little awkward at first but if you swivel it around, it is very easy to use with my left index finger (I am also right handed) OR reach over your head with your right are and use your right index finger. I love my durable Oceanic gear! It has taken me through Master Diver, Rescue Diver, Dive Maser and Instructor - 7 years of hard use (chlorine, freshwater & salt water/cold & warm water diving) and it is still going strong and looks brand new. The only reason I am buying more is because I travel more and I am reducing the load. I may even take my original Air XS 2 and put it on the new travel BC.
Designed for large hands
Review by Love2Dive (Posted on 10/19/13)
I purchased this alternate regulator on my Oceanic Hera BCD. I used it on a recent dive trip and found it very difficult to exhaust the air from my BCD using my left index finger because I could barely wrap my hand around the device! I have standard sized women's hands and am right handed. I ended up using my right thumb when exhausting air. Apart from that, it worked very well, and I liked that it lay flat against my BCD. I will probably give it to my husband when he updates his gear and purchase one that is designed for a women's hand.
