Equipment is an essential element of recreational diving. The proper equipment enables man's adaptation
to the underwater environment by allowing him to see clearly and breathe easily for an extended time. Equipment allows divers
to move freely underwater and helps them from quickly becoming cold and uncomfortable.Factors such as the purpose
of the dive, its location and the local environment all have a bearing on a diver's choice of equipment. For a good guide to
buying gear, take a look at PADI's
Introduction to Scuba Equipment which gives some useful advice and pointers.A diagram of a
fully-equipped diver (not all dives will entail the full range of equipment shown) can be seen below - hovering over a label on
the picture will give further information about that item of equipment.
