I've used the prototype for the Airlock on a couple of trips and can't wait to get my clammy little fingers on the real thing. Nothing like knowing your housing is really, scientifically, air tight as you jump into the water. I must say I did prefer the earlier more catchy product name... The Suckit.

Just a reminder - This is just one of what must be a hundred ways to remove backscatter. The key is to have as many tricks up your sleeve as possible !

Packing for a dive trip has become a real balancing act. In addition to the backpack/rollerbag combination, I wear a Tamrac photographer's vest. It's amazing how much weight one of these can carry, and I've never had it counted as carry-on luggage or been asked to gate check it. Strobe/focus light batteries and cables, spare hard drives and dive computers are carried in the pockets - basically all the small, heavy stuff finds a place in the vest. Even a Nikon D300 body is accomodated and relatively safe in one of the pockets. On a recent trip to Raja Ampat, the vest weighed 34 lbs. OK, so it's a pretty goofy look - sort of haute terrorist, all packed up with batteries and wires - and my lower back doesn't think it's such a good plan, but in the long run I've found the injury to my vanity and spine less damaging than lost luggage stress syndrome...
