    The diluent tank has a green valve? Isn't it a standard to have green for O2?

    You can't sell a new product unless you have some new innovation.

    This is the most compact 'all in a tube' unit among the several SM/BO breathers that I can see. The 1L tanks are less volume for BO for the bigger dives so the offboard QC are good and also used as for normal backmount configuration which is what is was designed for too with the standard DSV...from what I was told by someone who already bought over the prototype from Matthias. I will get the opportunity to test dive the prototype unit next month when it arrived.

    Cheers!

    Only in the US. There is no international standard for gas cylinder colors either. In the new EU standard, EU1089-3, green is the color used for inert gas and white is for oxygen.

    How does this work as a bailout rebreather? Ie If you bail out on to it how does it have breathable mix ready?

    This is a mCCR.
    There are 2 X 1L tanks of Diluent and Oxygen at the top of the tube.
    ADV compensate the volume during descent and using the PO2 display you manage the PO2 with CMF orifice and MAV. Should be simple to use.

    Cheers!

    Wasn't impressed with the Mini CCR that was shown before, but this I like.
