How to choose your diving weights
CHOOSING YOUR DIVING WEIGHTS:
Choose according to your use, your weight and the thickness of your wetsuit
Weights are a safety item that should not be ignored.
They should be carefully considered and personalised.
Remember, the deeper you dive, the less you should be weighed down!

CHOOSE ACCORDING TO YOUR USE
Does not require weights.
If you are immersed up to your eyes without finning, with an empty jacket and while exhaling gently, you are well ballasted.
Divers can ballast themselves with a flexible or traditional weights pocket belt, or by directly weighting their buoyancy vest.
Belts may be:
• made from rubber: adjust to fit your waist and do not slip.
• made from fabric: more economical but less comfortable than rubber.
• harness style: only for experienced spearfishing divers diving at minimum depths.
• Very comfortable, as it does not cause your back to curve
Please note: For your safety, it is better to be slightly under-weighted than weighted too heavily.
Use this rule to guide your choice. NOTE - these measures are given for information only.
