The Spare Air Xtreme 6 Complete Mini Scuba Kit consists of a 6-cu. ft. cylinder of air that provides up to 20 minutes of breathing at depths less than 20' (6m). Weighing under 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) it is the lightest weight system on the market. Priced competitively compared to other similar systems. The 6.0 cubic foot (170 liters) cylinder measures (L x Dia.)14" x 3.25" (36 cm x 8.3 cm) has a service pressure of 3000 psi (207 bars), weighs 4.95 lbs. (2.3 kg) when full.
Valve/first stage combo, mini pressure gauge, and incorporates the Spare Air Snorkelator.
The Snorkelator incorporates a modified IST 3D Flex Dry Snorkel. While IST doesn't claim to have "re-invented" the snorkel, the 3D Flex Dry is pretty-close to it! IST's 3D Flex Dry's special top has not 1 but 4 valves, each capable of blocking the air entrance independently. If the snorkeler unintentionally submerges the top part of the snorkel (i.e. looking from side to side), a conventional dry snorkel will have its only air passage closed off completely as soon as it senses buoyancy change but in the same situation with a IST 3D Snorkel, only the valves that are underwater will shut while the others will remain open, providing an unobstructed breathing path. Apart from the special quad-valve dry top, the IST 3D Snorkel is also equipped with a large purge valve and swiveling snorkel keeper. The flex tube section will fall away from the divers' face. The Snorkelator has a switch to close off the snorkel function when you're ready to submerge and breathe from the Scuba regulator.
The Snorkelator has a switch to close off the snorkel function when you're ready to submerge and breathe from the Scuba regulator. The Snorkelator measures approximately (L x W x Dia.) 18" x 5" x 3", weighs 9.08 oz. (257.4 g), is made from corrosion and impact resistant ABS plastic. The regulator has a dependable balanced piston first stage with a downstream demand valve second stage. The first-stage regulator threads directly into the neck of the cylinder eliminating the need or bulk of a cylinder valve, first stage has a sure grip on/off valve hand-wheel that is easy to turn even with gloved hands. The first stage is equipped with three 3/8"-24 UNF threaded low pressure ports and one 7/16"-20 UNF threaded high pressure port on the marine grade black chrome platted brass body for corrosion resistance and long life. The first stage has an Integrated pressure relief, second stage comes equipped with a 27" (68.6cm) flexible hose equipped with 90° swivel (brass) adapters on both the first and second stage sides.
The regulator second stage also comes equipped with a regulator necklace to keep the Snorkelator ready for when you need it. The systems harness consists of a standard 2" (5cm) webbing waist strap and nylon latch style weight belt buckle.
