Rebreather articles


It’s surprisingly difficult to find good rebreather articles. There are plenty of comparison articles on, for example, the JJ-CCR versus the Revo, but many are quite old. It’s also a shame that the rebreather manufacturers aren’t more proactive about promoting their products. The exception is AP Diving, which does have some information on its website. You can view videos about rebreather diving here, including tutorials, equipment set-ups and discussions.


If there are any articles that you’ve come across that I could put on here, I’d be grateful if you could let me know.
