Mares Air Control Scuba Diving Octopus

The evolution.

The Mares Air Control Inflator replaces the conventional BC power inflator and second stage octopus by combining the functions of both into a single unit. When you're taught how to dive you are given practice in buoyancy control more than any other skill. Once you start to dive every time you go underwater, fin the reef, or surface you use buoyancy control. All this time your octopus second stage regulator hangs un-used and out of mind. When a real life out-of-air situation occurs, the stress and anxiety mounts, and you find yourself fumbling for a piece of equipment you never use the Octopus! Combining your inflator devise (that you use on every dive) with your octopus Regulator assures your ability to react properly when an out-of-air emergency occurs. Be a safe diver with the Mares Air Control Breathable Inflator.

The pre-oriented mouthpiece makes it usable as a quick and easy octopus. The cover features the mesh-grid system, made of soft material so the purge button is easy to push, even when wearing gloves. The patented mesh design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water flowing onto the regulators diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in a strong current it eliminates the need for a knob to de-tune your air delivery system- advance technology through basic physics.

Exactly what you want - 1 less hose
Look and Feel: Installed it myself on a Mares Prestige BCD. Too easy. It is compatible with other brand BCDs as well, comes with adapters for their inflator hoses. Also comes with its own 1st stage hose (larger) since the inflator will now require additional air volume due to reg. Has larger inflate/deflate buttons that standard inflators seem to have, which is a plus. As a whole, it is bigger than a standard inflator mechanism due to reg integration.

Actually breathes easier than my Mares Instinct. It works exactly like the standard inflator. The larger size doesn't bother me at all since it hangs out of the way. It actually makes it easier to grab in a hurry. This is way better than an extra reg. 

You won't be disappointed.
