The Cressi R1 BCD and MC5 Compact package is an extremely well priced kit that sits in the mid range of the Cressi scuba diving gear. It consists of the Cressi R1 BCD, Compact MC5 reg, compact occy, Leonardo wrist computer and the SPG gauge. 

 

The Cressi MC5 Compact Regulator is  made in Italy and they sure do know how to make quality gear that is also good looking. It is a great performing regulator at a super affordable price point. The first stage is a balanced diaphragm with a high pressure port and 3 low pressure ports. The second stage is light weight with an extra large purge button for easy user. There is nothing worse that having a super small purge button that you struggle to use, especially when you are wearing thick chunky gloves.  It has an adjustable venturi system which allows you to control the air flow in to your mouth to give you a comfortable dive that suits you as some divers prefer direct air flow and others like indirect flow. The anti scratch surface of course prevents abrasions for the second stage when diving and the inter changeable face covers are a great feature. you can purchase these separately to jazz up your regulator.

 

The Cressi Compact Octopus is a secondary back up regulator designed as an emergency air source. Whether you or your buddy needs it, it is always there and ready for action and it easily seen by the bright yellow color of the hose and face. All Occys are yellow for that simple reason of being able to spot it in an emergency. Being light weight and super compact, you really can not go wrong with the regulator. Hopefully you will never have to use your back up as it is generally only used in emergencies but it is mandatory to have when scuba diving and with the  Cressi Compact octopus you can be assured that it is good quality and will do the job.

 

The Cressi R1 BCD is an entry level great quality BCD as a fantastic price that will not break the bank.  It has 2 metal D-rings and 4 plastic D-rings that you can hang any accessories off of. Being weight integrated means that you no longer have to use those old uncomfortable webbing weight belts that move around and bruise your hip bones, as now you can place all of your lead weights in tot he pockets and have them tucked away out of the way. To release the weights in an emergency all you need to do is simply tug on the handles of the weight pocket and they will release and fall from you allowing you to head to the surface with ease.  Sitting behind the dump able weight pockets are larger zipper pockets that you can place any accessories in if you do not want to have them hanging off of your D-rings. The Cressi R1 BCD is fully adjustable with shoulder straps that you can change and the cummerbund that is also adjustable. It is light weight yet extremely durable and has 3 dump valves. Check out the Cressi R1 if you are in the market for a new BCD and want quality at a super affordable price. 

 

The Cressi Leonardo Wrist Computer is a fantastic affordable dive computer that has many bells and whistles that other brands do not have at the same price point. Cressi is an Italian company and the gear is extremely well made with fantastic warranty. The Leonardo is a one button controlled wrist watch that gives you all the information that you will need including depths, times, temperatures, accent rates and safety stops. Not to mention that it is nitrox compatible with air and gauge modes also. The deep stop functions allows you to set a depth that you do not want to exceed and the Leonardo will let you know once you have come to that depth. Very clever! A great feature of this particular computer is the user replaceable batteries which means that you yourself can change the battery and not have to get it sent off for a service every time you need one. With a back light, calendar and a clock, why would you want another computer.

 

Majority of dive sights will now only allow you to dive them if you are using a computer rather than a gauge. This is due to the fact that the tables are extremely conservative, so if you were diving on a gauge using your tables, you would generally have to surface a fair amount of time earlier than other divers who are using computers. Because of this, company's like everyone to be on the same level and surface all together.

 

The Cressi Pressure Air Gauge is a simple yet necessary item that you will need when diving as it lets you know how much air you have in your tank at any given time. A great feature of this particular gauge if the color coded areas which help you easily and instantly know where you are with air. The Blue zone is from 350 bar to 200 bar which tells you that you have plenty of air. Green is 200 bar to 100 bar which tells you that you are starting to get low and finally Red is 100 bar to empty and if you are on red, this means that it is time to get organized and get to the surface as you air is running out. The Cressi pressure gauge has a chrome plated brass casing for durability and then a rubber boot for grip when under the water. There is also a connector loop on the head of the gauge to allow you to clip on a retractor or BCD clip for streamlining.
