    Sourcing Scuba Gear: 5 Things to Look For

    Whether you’re in crystal clear Costa Rican waters or exploring the Great Barrier Reef, you need the best quality scuba gear. SiliconeGear is a longtime DEMA and dive shop favorite because our product line sets the standard for quality dive equipment. 

    1. REMAINS FLEXIBLE IN COLD WATER: You need gear that remains flexible in cold water. With that in mind, look for 100% medical-grade silicone, such as the products you’ll find on this site.
    2. HYPOALLERGENIC: Your dive shop gear should be safe for skin contact. That means choosing hypoallergenic scuba diving gear, such as our silicone scuba mouthpieces, octopus straps, octopus necklaces, and more.
    3. JAW FATIGUE RESISTANT: No one likes jaw fatigue deep underwater. Make sure your customers have the best diving experience with our Longbite, Standard, and Kids mouthpieces.
    4. AFFORDABLE PRICES: Looking for premium diving equipment at competitive prices? This online scuba diver store is factory owned and operated, meaning that our wholesale prices are as low as possible.

    DEMA Scuba Gear Pricing Available *Limited Time Only*

    Join our mailing list for exclusive access to DEMA pricing. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual DEMA scuba gear show is going entirely virtual. Though we are sad to miss our customers at this year’s show, we look forward to providing our high-quality dive shop essentials at a discount to those on our mailing list.

    3 Scuba Diving Mouthpiece Sizes

    A favorite at the DEMA trade show, we offer three different scuba mouthpiece sizes, all engineered from medical-grade silicone rubber.

    1. LONG BITE MOUTHPIECE: Great for divers with a slightly larger mouth, especially male divers, the Long Bite is designed to reduce jaw fatigue during extended dives.
    2. STANDARD MOUTHPIECE: An ideal size for adult divers, the standard mouthpiece is compatible with most regulators and available in a variety of colors on our wholesale scuba gear site.
    3. KID'S MOUTHPIECE: Available in an array of eye-catching colors, this small size is great for dive shops catering to younger divers.

    Octopus Strap for Your Scuba Gear

    It's critical not to lose a mouthpiece during a dive. That's why we designed the Octopus Stap, another favorite on our wholesale dive shop. Otherwise known as a second regulator strap, the "Octo Strap" is made from medical-grade silicone designed for long elongation and ideal for cold waters. In other words, the Octopus Strap remains flexible, an essential safety feature.

    Octopus Regulator Necklace

    Attached to your mouthpiece is your regulator, the Octopus Regulator Necklace is another favorite wholesale scuba gear offering on SiliconeGear. A diving regulator is designed to reduce the pressure of the gas held in the tank. This allows the diver to breathe highly pressurized gas.

    Preparing for an emergency is a critical part of successful scuba diving. With that in mind, many technical and cave divers use our Octopus Necklace to fasten their primary or secondary regulator. A secondary regulator is a key safety feature that allows you to assist your diving buddy in an emergency. 

    You want your Octopus Necklace to be made from medical-grade silicone engineered for cold water flexibility. That's why we never use vinyl elastomers or questionable mixed silicone products, only medical-grade materials. SiliconeGear is a longtime favorite in the diving community because of our emphasis on quality and transparency in our processes.

    Scuba Tank Strap (AL40 AND AL80)

    Great for securing equipment and hoses, we offer two sizes of tank strap: the AL40 and Al80. These straps can be used with side mounted and standard tanks. Made from 100% healthcare grade silicone, these tank straps remain flexible in cold water, a critical feature for divers everywhere.

    Wholesale Scuba Gear Manufacturer

    What should you look for when choosing the gear for your next coral reef exploration? In addition to being certified to dive, you should consider quality above all else. That means choosing brands that have ample experience producing dive gear—and those that are conscious of the wear and tear associated with diving.

    SiliconeGear has designed and manufactured quality scuba equipment for two decades. Our gear is produced from medical-grade silicone designed for flexibility in cold, deep water. It is also hypoallergenic and biocompatible, unlike lower-quality materials. All of our products are manufactured in Maine, USA.

    Other Important Scuba Gear for Dive Shops

    Though we do not offer the following equipment, they are also critical for dive shops.

    Dive Tank

    Iconic to scuba diving, a tank is a cylinder filled with high-pressure gas that allows someone to breathe while underwater. It's hard to miss—and absolutely key to exploring deep underwater. By contrast, snorkeling can be done without a tank or a lot of these accessories.

    For a safe experience, a tank requires a tank strap, designed to secure scuba equipment such as hoses or other necessities. The best tank strap is compatible with standard or side-mounted tank models and is available in a variety of sizes. It should also be made from medical-grade silicone for durability and easy use: No one wants to be fumbling with their scuba gear while on a dive. It's also a great, lightweight material.

    Masks Are Essential Scuba Gear

    Another crucial (and iconic) piece of scuba diving equipment is the mask. There are different mask styles, such as full-face or those that only cover the eyes and nose. Determining which is best for you may be a matter of personal choice. The best mask or other accessory is hypoallergenic, wear-resistant and strong.

    Snorkel

    Though some argue that snorkels are not necessary scuba gear for technical divers, others emphasize that for people who dive recreationally, they're really important. Choosing whether or not you use one should be determined with the help of a dive shop or instructor and is a matter of personal choice, though always keep safety first.

    For example, shore divers who may have to swim for a distance prefer to have a snorkel. It's also a great way to explore and understand your visibility if using a dive boat.  

    Wetsuit or Drysuit

    Every diver needs a drysuit or a wetsuit, but what is the difference between the two? It all comes down to heat loss. Drysuits are preferable in cold water locations whereas wetsuits are customary in warmer water. In simple terms, drysuits are designed to keep your warm whereas wet suits are not: they only have a layer of neoprene and a thin layer of water against the skin, whereas dry suits contain elements designed for insulation.

    Choosing between these generally comes down to where you are diving and how much you're willing to spend. Though you can find dry suits for much lower prices than previously, they require more upkeep than a wetsuit.

    Scuba Diving Fins

    Fins are another type of diving gear that affects your comfort level and the ease with which you move around underwater. There are two main types of fins: split vs. padded.

    Padded fins function as a paddle, meaning that they're one solid piece that allows you to kick underwater.

    Split fins are exactly that: Their split design allows for an easier, lower energy kick but you will typically move at a slower speed compared to with a padded fin, the industry standard.

    Some fins have an open heel, while others have a full foot design. Again, which type of scuba gear works best for you may depend on preference and water temperature: a full foot design is great for cold water scuba diving.

    A Dive Knife Is Essential Scuba Gear

    A knife is a key thing to bring on any dive. Whether cutting yourself free from a sticky situation or exploring a deep-sea wreck, it's crucial to have a knife—specifically a dive shop knife—with you. There are sharp tip and blunt options, ones made from titanium and others made from stainless steel. Typically, they range between five and two inches long and size is a matter of preference.

    Keep in mind that serrated edges are ideal for cutting through a rope. Need to cut through a fishing line? A sharp straight edge may be best. 

    Dive Computer

    Otherwise known as a decompression meter, a dive computer is an essential tool. It may help you calculate:

    • How long your dive is
    • How deep underwater you are
    • Your decompression profile

    f a diver ascends too quickly, they are at risk for decompression sickness. Also known as the bends, Decompression Sickness may result in the formation of small bubbles of gas within the body's tissues. It may have longterm impacts such as muscle pain, nausea, and paralysis. Death may occur in extreme cases.

    These are far from the only types of scuba equipment necessary for a safe and relaxing underwater adventure. Other important gear to bring with you include:

    1. Scuba gloves
    2. Buoyancy compensator
    3. Mask defogger
    4. Dive light
    5. Underwater camera
    6. Submersible pressure gauge
    7. Compass
    8. Depth gauge
