of Mikron from Aqualung
Have you always
wnated a small and light regulator that you could so easily slip
into your luggage? Aqualung has released the Mikron which has
the advantage of being the smallest and lightest weight
regulator in the line. The fact that the regulator is so compact
does not affect its performance.
Its balanced first and
second stages produce extraordinary breathing performance.
The Mikron is compact and light giving a unique diving experience.
The hose is very flexible and weighs less than 5 oz., which provides
comfort and excellent packability.
You can have the Mikron in two colors including the new black/pink that matches the ladies segment.

|How can you personally and your entourage contribute effectively to marine conseravtion?
You could join special organised events or organize your own special event.
Have a few friends come over and explore the coast, or a local body of water

is there than by immersing yourself in its sights, sounds and
smells. It does not matter where you live, there are many
opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the natural world. You
could take a trip to the beach, take a walk or a hike or
even have a picnic at the park, take a stroll by the river, lake, or
stream or go cycling.
We are all part of the life; as you enjoy the outdoors think about your connections to the places you
are exploring, and absorb and enjoy their special qualities. Let the experience
give you new energy and help you commit to living as sustainably as possible.
You do not have to do huge things, small collective efforts will move big mountains when we join hands. Start today.
