    Custom Extendair?

    I've heard rumors of cartridges made to custom specs (by individuals with access to sheet materials??).

    The Kiss Spirit/Sidewinder needs this on the exhale side. Any hope?

    AFAIK Only Extendair can make the bog-rolls, some people have "unwound" them and cut bits off to make smaller ones but I can't see this being reccomended by anyone.

    Use loose lime, goes into any shape you like, readily available, easily transported, cheaper and if kept dry works just as well.

    That's exactly my concern on that unit.

    First stop for any moisture in the loop is the sorb (sidewinder specifically).

    On the whole, Kiss units are not known as being especially flood tolerant. If that's a deal killer you'll need to find a different unit.

    You mean like these...?

    Micropore makes them for Juergensen Defense and the US Navy. Lithium Hydroxide formula, in testing phase. .76 lb. gave us over 60 minutes of CO2 absorption at a 3.0 liters per minute CO2 rate... Amazing stuff...

    We tested this at Hydrospace (US Navy testing lab) under contract with NIOSH for the development of the Next Generation Mine Self Rescue device, called the "CCEV".

    Micropore is a fantastic company, by the way, and has done some amazing things with their product. I anticipate them just getting better and better. Truly cutting-edge stuff.

    I think this material may have a great application in some kind of Diving Rebreather, which we're exploring at the moment.

    The SideKick is pretty good based on my experiences to date...
