introduces the ATMOS BC
The best of both worlds. The innovative hybrid air cell design of the ATMOS allows
the freedom of movement and other benefits you have come to expect from a rear-
inflation BC. However, the unique wrap-around design provides you more lift than most
BC’s; as well as an improved, upright orientation when on the surface.
The ATMOS offers multiple adjustment and attachment points, allowing customization of the BC specific to the divers needs. The ATMOS is weight-integrated with a
combination of dumpable (20 lbs.) and non-dumpable (10 lbs.) weight pockets.
Large, uniquely shaped rear-inflation bladder - Provides maximum amount of lift
Wrap-around air lobes on each side allow for an upright position when on the surface
Integrated Weight System accommodates up to 20 lbs. plus dual 5 lbs. trim weight
pouches on the back for improved in-water positioning
Padded Backplate featuring a carry handle and extended lumbar support to transfer
tank weight onto hips, relieving stress on shoulders
Easily adjustable and replaceable depth compensating cummerbund
Tank positioning strap and much more...

|Newest Addition to DAN Video Lecture Series Helps Divers Prepare for the Unforeseen
With summer fast approaching, divers nationwide are preparing to get back in the
water. Fitness programs are underway, gear is being serviced and emergency plans are
being dusted off and reviewed (or in some cases, created).
DAN supports that attention to emergency preparation with the latest addition to its
online video lecture series. “How Good Is Your Emergency Action Plan?” examines the key pieces of an emergency plan, including what information is necessary in a time of crisis and why.
“DAN is regularly contacted by divers seeking information for their emergency
assistance plans,” said Marty McCafferty, DAN medical information specialist and
presenter in the video. “We wanted to include the topic in our video series not only
to make the answers to their questions more readily available, but because we want to
help divers understand that the middle of an emergency is not the time to start
thinking about how you’ll respond.”
In addition to reviewing the components every emergency assistance plan should
contain, the 40-minute lecture also shares recommendations based on the experience of
medical professionals, dive industry professionals and DAN staff.

wait? Start making a positive change now for the
Use ocean-friendly cleaners. A little baking soda, vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice
and other common household items can go a long way towards keeping your home fresh,
clean and safe, while protecting your own health and the health of our ocean.
Reduce waste while cleaning. If you do buy commercial cleaning products, make sure to
avoid those labeled dangerous or poisonous, they likely contain ingredients that can
be deadly for all sorts of life. Instead, purchase non-toxic household cleaners in
concentrated or bulk versions to reduce packaging waste. Using fewer disposable
products benefits the ocean. Save old socks and shirts to use as washable rags for
cleaning and dusting. Paper towel production costs trees and most times involves
bleaching with chlorine that pollutes waterways. Plastics are nearly all oil-based —
they pollute our waterways, choke animals and are creating a sea of plastic.
Create a less hazardous home. Say "Yes" to a healthier home and a living ocean by
making the switch from toxic products to effective non-toxic and "green"
alternatives. In addition to home cleaners, many homes are full of other hazardous
materials, such as paint, yard chemicals, and pesticides. Learn more about household
hazardous waste. Find the proper recycling centers for all your household products
and dispose of them safely. Batteries are an example — unless recycled, they end up
in landfills and corrode, leaching poisons into groundwater and local water supplies
for years to come. Consider investing in greener, rechargeable batteries. They cost
more up front, but will save you money over time, and help our ocean planet.
