Apeks XL4 Regulator

This newcomer from Apeks is travel-friendly, weighing in at only 905gm, and designed to be fused with extreme coldwater performance.

Apeks has used an over-moulded end-cap to minimise ice build-up on the first stage which, like the second stage, uses heat-exchangers to prevent the freezing that can lead to freeflows. Expecting the regulator to have general appeal, Apeks anticipates that it will be especially attractive to technical divers who want a lightweight and compact unit on which they can depend in demanding environments. It costs £339 for DIN or yoke models, and £363 for the M26 nitrox version.

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
