So where is your octopus during the dive? Is it trailing along in the water behind you? Can you find it in an emergency? Can you find it at all?
XS Scuba has addressed that problem by developing the AltAir. The AltAir utilizes the same patented quick-release buckles used on today's most modern weight integrated BC's.
Snap the AltAir in place to the BC and forget about it. If you need it, then it will be there...everytime. Even after a giant stride from a 20' tuna tower...it's still there.
Yet, just grab and pull the AltAir, that's all that is needed to release the patented X-Lock buckle
Exclusive X-Lock attachment
Intelligent, inline mouthpiece orientation
Reliable, free flow resistant design
36" Black hose
Second Stage Only
Regulator Special Features

Not Real Happy Review by Rick
OK, I have given this product a long test. I am a dive instructor so you might want to understand this product is ALWAYS in the water. In order to control the free flowing problems the adjustments are tightened to the max. When using the octo it is a very wet. The clip was a good concept except that it is so easy to release that after a deep entry off the back of the dive boat you got to practice 'regulator retrieval skills' on 90% of your dives but not to worry it was easy to find due to the heavy free flow. Today was the last straw. I made my first deep water entry of the day and the octo popped apart. The yellow 'cap' was easy to see but the diaphragm was quickly lost to the currents. Needless to say, I will be purchasing a replacement but it will be something more along the line of a traditional octo. BTW I began diving in 1973 so I am no stranger to innovative equipment in the dive industry. This one doesn't cut it. (Posted on 1/19/2015)
