Moreover the Divers in the cold water need more thermal protection as compared to the divers in the warm water. Divers who are usually engaged in the activities, like underwater photography and night diving, deep diving, wreck or ice or the cavern diving, needs extra specialized diving tools that may not be required by the sight-seeing divers in the open or shallow water.

There are, moreover, specific equipments which many experts believe that recreational divers must have and should use them during the dive. Important diving tool is Fins, mask and the snorkel. Masks allows the divers to see the sight underwater devoid of any distortion and Snorkels makes the diver capable to breathe at surface without lifting their heads from water or without using air from the tanks. Fins permit the divers to move ahead through water with great efficiency.

Divers generally need protection from heat loss as well as from abrasion. It is important to note that heat loss is of high significance, since water conducts the heat away from your body and so the divers can become hazardously chilled in the water.

Abrasion protection and Thermal can range from the lightweight wet suits for the warm-water divers to the thick and highly insulate dry suits for the cold water diving. Many divers use hand and foot protection.

Wet suit boots are even considered to be most common kind of foot protection. You can protect your hands with thick wet-suit gloves. Modern scuba systems are integrated with various components, which include primary as well as alternate air sources.
