A lot of people hear "pay more" and stop listening, unfortunately, without knowing what they would be benefiting.

So what is Project AWARE?

25 years ago the SCUBA diving community started to realize the impact humans were having on the underwater ecosystems as well as coastal areas, and knew they had to take a stand.
Project AWARE is now a global force of divers working together to protect the underwater environment.

By reporting the quantity and type of debris collected on each of your dives, you can help Project AWARE build their global databa…

First things first, the Regulators.
All Atomic Aquatics regulators share the best design in diving.  The exclusive Jet Seat Piston eliminates creeping intermediate pressures and minimizes maintenance, making the service-interval for all Atomic regulators two years (three for the T3!). 
Atomic regulators are named based on their first-stage material: T3 is made of TitaniumST1 is made of Stainless Steel/TitaniumB2 is made of Chrome Plated BrassM1 is made of MonelZ3 is made of Zirconium  Each second stage is equipped with the Atomic Aquatics Patented Automatic Flow Control (AFC) and Seat Saving Dynamic Orifice. The AFC eliminates the manual adjustment normally needed to regulate the venturi effect as you dive deep…
