    This will serve as a location for links to many of the Save-a-Dive kit / Dry Box threads we have here on SB. This topic comes up often, so this is a good "look here first" resource as you consider building a kit or upgrading your current kit.

    If you have questions, or find a post I missed or haven't gotten to yet, please PM me and I'll get it in here. This is an ongoing work in progress.

    Thanks.

    how does the board feel about the pelican micro case, as a save-a-dive case: thinking of putting a comfo-bite mouthpiece, zip ties, o-rings, cristolube, mask strap, and bonine in it Pelican™ Products 1010 Micro Case

    In one of the posts one person mentioned getting a peanut butter jar to use to hold the save-a-dive kit items. I have the store-bought save a dive kit and my biggest complaint about it was the caps just pop off (they don't screw on). So with the person's peanut butter jar tip I went out and bought a 32oz jar of Jiff. I put the peanut butter in tupperware, and now have a nice screw-top. I include, in there:
    1) Bunch of zip ties (about 20)
    2) Some calumn glow sticks
    3) Mouth piece (that came with the save-a-dive-kit)
    4) Extra fin strap (came with save-a-dive-kit)
    5) O-rings
    6) Extra mask strap (save-a-dive kit)
    7) Perm water marker
    8) Diving multi tool kit
    9) Small bottle of defogger

    I should add scissors, nasal decongestant, and dramamine to that list but not sure how long the medicine will stay good in a sealed container that will be in warm environments.
