Does your scuba gear have to match (colors, brand)?

Do you only wear scuba gear if it matches color and/or brand? All black or all pink or all the same brand? Or do you not care as long as it’s functional?

[Choose #4] I don’t care if things match. I have a bright green Dry Snorkel which is kind of handy for my dive buddy to identify me if there is a group (his is blue, so doesn’t stand out so well).

[Choose #5] In some federations mix brands are allowed only in different utility equipment as different wet suit and bcd but for insurance purposes regulator parts shall be of one brand only.

[Choose #4] Started matching with red since my first open heel fins were black and red. Eventually went to blue. Now I couldn’t care less. For now any mathcing is based on availability and fit..

[Choose #4] Starting with yellow & blue, but got tierd of scrubbing the Maui "red dirt." Now only a quick rinse with all black. Comfort, fit, and easy maintenance is everything.

[Choose #4] Fit & functionality are more important. Seems like its all either purple/black or neon yellow/black though.

[Choose #4] My main concern is functionality & price. I would like some white and color options, since black is easy to lose.

[Choose #5] Don’t care about colors, but care about compatibility correct IP for for both 2nd stages, upstream vs downstream (don’t want 2 mix and match that) - and overall quality as I want my life support equipment to work 100000% of the time!

[Choose #5] It doesn’t have to match but I prefer it does; Right now my theme is high visibilty yellow.

jamesh516 - 8/17/2012 4:16 AM
[Choose #4] It just needs to be comfortable and easy to use.

[Choose #5] All that color only looks good on land. Let the bubble watchers worry about it.:)

[Choose #4] I originally tried to maintain a color pattern, but now, its been more fun to have no rhyme or reason!

[Choose #4] not brand loyal and color doesn’t matter

BgDmbRngr - 8/15/2012 10:24 AM
[Choose #2] I prefer yellow just to make me a little more visable, my wife however will only buy purple since its her "color". Brands don’t matter, go for quality of product.

[Choose #4] Color is a little more important but not really that big a deal. I’ll pretty much dive with what I like. For instance I wear an old SeaTek Oringinal Manta BCD. Also use and old Sherwood Oasis regulator. All this equipment is easily 25 years old.

RichKeller - 8/14/2012 1:09 PM
[Choose #4] I do not care what it looks like or what anyone else thinks. All it has to do is work.
