    GEM Spare Parts to carry?

    Besides the usual O Rings, what spares should I really have for the GEM?

    I was thinking

    1> Regulator (More for yearly maintenance, so dives dont end for 1+ week to get rebuilt))

    2> Spare Mouthpiece? (Do they wear out and need rebuilding?)

    Spare long Scrubber > lh tblock hose, as wear from tank neck?

    Not much else I can think of, they are such a simple design.

    A sport kiss is an excellent spare to bring along.

    No offense to KISS in any way, but if I ever go full CCR, it'll be a revo.

    Although I'm curious on the GEM sidemount, when Mike states it can be CCR as well. The compactness intrigues me.

    Me too??? Having already lost one of those bad boys I can clearly see the need to carry a spare.
