    There was a unit on ebay last year. Strange looking smooth fabric wrapped hoses like coolant hoses on it.

It seems that the FROG is endorsed by the MDEA out of Marathon FL.

    I must admit that I have not seen one in the water and the unit they had on display didnt seem operational. My biggest concern I had was the canister seemed really thin. I asked them about it and I was told that it didnt need to be thick since it was pressurized... I didnt need to ask them anything else after that.
    Thanks for the reply. Based on your statement one should apparently stay away from it.
    Had another look at Chett L.'s photos from the show, in this (RebreatherWorld Gallery - IMG_2079 - Powered by PhotoPost) it looks like the wall is buckling, as if the walls are made of soft plastic. Could it be that it is only the prepacked scrubbermaterial and that there is a canister going on the outside of it?
    And what's the purpose of this "sock"? RebreatherWorld Gallery - FROG MK 1 - Powered by PhotoPost.
    Dang, must be the counterlung i guess.

    Yeah, i saw that in the pictures on their website and in Chett L.'s photos of the unit. I don't think it's the unit's worst feature...

    Re: Frog rebreather

    There was one on Ebay a few months ago. It was on there for awhile. Didn't look like it had been used much and seemed like all the pieces were there as per the pictures.

    It's nonsense the unit does not exist, they've been around for years talking about what they don't have.....sound familiar?

    I think it was 1996 when my local ANDI place was promoting them. Maybe they just need time to catch on :D

    I have seen one at many shows (for years), but have never seen one or heard from anyone that has ever been in the water with one....

    Good plan, tell him I'll give him $100 for it.

    Its kind of a reverse kiss idea. Flow is set high and you flush the loop when ppo2 gets high. The worest thing is the beer can size scruber.

    Re: Frog rebreather

    There is one on Flea bay for 100 plus shipping. I wonder if its the same unit.
