The Details - Common questions and answers
How does it work?
Like a standard SCUBA regulator, just insert the mouthpiece, blow out any water and breathe normally.
How do I mount it?
The Neoprene mounting vest is included. Wear alone, over a wetsuit or under another vest.
How much air will it give me?
It varies based on an individual’s lung capacity, approximately 10-15 breaths on average. It will give you enough air to get out of an emergency where you are held underwater for a short period of time. See specifications for more details.
Is it reusable?

How much does it weigh?
At only 2 lb. (for both breathing unit and vest) You won’t even know you are wearing it!!!

Suggested Retail is $295.00 for the Spare Air and the neoprene vest.
Do I need training to use the product?
