Correct Order of Equip


Although each diver can place his equipment in the order he sees fit, the most logical sequence to be followed, in order to streamline the procedures, is as follows:

  1. Suit
  2. Socks/boots
  3. Instruments
  4. Fins
  5. Ballast belt
  6. Scaffolding (vest/bottle/regulator)
  7. Mask/tube
  8. Gloves

This sequence can be changed depending on the conditions currently existing.


Organizing the equip and disequip sequence is very useful to avoid forgetfulness and not create chaos on board.
