LIFTBAGS / SURFACE MARKER FLOATS
See Me Sausage
Becoming separated from the boat is
a risk all of us run when diving in open ocean or any large body of water. This is why
many divers insist on carrying an inflatable signalling device such as the "See
Me" safety tube . When not in use, the "See Me" rolls up to fit easily
inside the two-zip diver's pocket, or can be clipped to any harness D-ring.
Lift Bags: Dive Rite offers 50- and 100-pound (22 and 45 kg)
lift bags (item numbers 2751 and 2752). Each lift bag comes with its own
carrying sleeve (see below), which snaps to the two lower D-rings on the back of the
Transpac II harness for easy carrying.
Diver Marking Bag: At first glance, Dive Rite's Diver Marking Bag
appears to be a bright red version of our 100-pound/45 kg lift bag. There are, however,
some important differences.
Unlike a lift bag, which is designed to help raise items from the bottom, the
marking bag fulfills a very different purpose. The marking bag's primary function is to
help dive boats identify where it is that ascending divers are decompressing. The
guideline divers attach to their marking bag can also help them maintain a constant
distance from the surface.
The neck of the marking bag also contains a cone-shaped baffle that the lift bags do
not. This helps prevent the marking bag from collapsing after it "pops" to the
Includes carry sleeve (see below).
All Dive Rite Lift and Marking Bags come with our "Quick Access" Sleeve for
rapid deployment. By using a combination of snaps and quick links, you can easily attach
this sleeve to the side or bottom of backplates or Transpac harnesses
