Compared to the more expensive Expedition HD suit, it may be less rugged, but undoubtedly durable enough for most recreational uses [...]

To all the diver dads out there, Happy Father’s Day! Whether you’re a committed cold-water diver or a salty sea-dog of the tropics, at some point, you probably played with your dad in the water. It’s well known that familial ties are strengthened through outdoor recreation, and exploring the planet’s waters can be a particularly potent way to develop the bond between father and child.
