Buying your own SCUBA equipment is an investment that pays for itself in many ways. Here are 5 benefits and reasons why you should buy your own equipment. 1. The #1 reason that all divers should have their own personal gear is familiarity. Purchasing your own gear, training with it from the start, and using it regularly can significantly reduce your risk of decompression sickness. In the August 2000 issue of Dive training magazine, Joel Dovenberger, VP of medical services for DAN, stated that the single fastest growing factor for decompression sickness in divers is the lack of familiarity with their equipment. Check out our gear packages ! 2. Another important reason is the equipment will fit you properly. Every piece of dive equipment comes in a variety of sizes. This is especially true for wet suits, BCDs and mouthpieces. An accurate size will make the diving experience more relaxed and comfortable. Rental equipment may not fit 100% correctly (especially for women)
