Try Rebreather: Hollis Explorer - March 17, 2017
Come try the Hollis Explorer Rebreather! The unit is neither a fully closed circuit Rebreather nor a pure semi-closed system, but an intelligent hybrid that utilizes the best of both worlds. It’s compact, lightweight and extremely easy to use.
Rebreathers reuse the gas you exhale by recycling the good part and replenishing it for your next breath. This means your gas supply is significantly larger in a compact package compared to what you can carry in a scuba tank for conventional open-circuit scuba diving. It’s a huge benefit that allows longer dives.
Another benefit is the quiet factor. Underwater photographers really like it because they can approach aquatic creatures that would ordinarily shy away from bubble noise. Also, because you breathe gas that’s been warmed by you and the recycle process, rebreather diving keeps you warmer – a bonus in cool water.
