    Divelife do one that should fit, I would think.

    I have previously used a shroud from an old (i guess it was a similar size to a UK D4) scubapro torch for this. Fraid i can't remember which torch it was but the boot fitted very well.

    Hi fredrik,

    I see that you look kinda desperate looking for smaller size tank boot.

    Perhaps my idea might help - I use plastic container kinda like Tupper ware if you are familiar with kitchen stuffs. There are available in many sizes and colors from various manufacturers.
    Attached is one of my 30s alu. with the container acting as Boot. Remember to drill small holes at the base in order to drain trapped water.

    Hope this helps

    Since we are on the discussion of mini tank boots, I had an inquire about tank boot for Faber 19 cu. ft. (3 litre) tanks.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or sources (except the Tupperware idea Wei ;) )?

    Try Divelife (see my post above).

    3lt Cylinder Boot by: DiveLife - DiveLife - DiveLife, Manchester,UK,

    I've got some on my Inspiration 3l cylinders - very nice. I would think that they'd work on Ali as well as Steel, as they have flat bottoms inside and out.

    Cheers,
