    including 2 liter tanks (steel), including harnas and wing, having the same scrubber as the standard rEvo, titanium housing: 20.5 kg! (steel housing 23 kg)

    (and if you use carbon 2 liter tanks (!!! not approved for diving :-(), the total weight is 17.3 kg ...)

    And you can use it to 80 meters without problems

    ... and if you want, you can always put 3 liter tanks on it, without changing anything!

    Nice! :D

    What are the measurements, Paul.
    Width, height and depth, compared to the rEvo?

    I'm starting to feel sorry for Phi, he's gotta be itching. :p

    Re: the 'mini rEvo'

    Great job Paul... but I'm confused as well. If it has the same scrubber and can takes 3liters as well why would anyone want to have the "normal" one? There have to be some advantages of over the other. Is it meant to be a travel rebreather compromising something to gain on transpotability? What's the idea behind it? (I though the rEvo was a great RB to travel with allready ;)

    Depending how well this system prevents tragedy,....

    could very well be my 2nd RB.

    I like the way it looks and the selected concept.


    Well done , you've been greened.

    hello dutchy, smaller for travel, nicer with the 2l tanks

    but not perfect for some-one 6foot + the standard lays better on his back!you need some length to fit well on the back!

    if you don't travel much, and you are BIG, or you do dives where you want more gas internally, you go for the standard

    if you put 3 liters on the mini, they come much higher (but it works)

    drysuit diving you will need to put more extra weight on the mini

    etc, etc... you see, we deliver the best for every-ones needs
