DIVE 2016

We're sorry that you haven't heard from us on this blog for a while. It's fair to say it's been a pretty lively year at ND, with various engagements worldwide and a great deal of new products introduced across all of our industry ranges.

Anyway, what better way to 'rebuild bridges' than with information regarding the biggest sport diving exhibition the UK, DIVE 2016. If you're going, see you there. If not, there's still something in it for you - from us at least.

Northern Diver will be occupying 120 square metres of prime NEC real estate with the vast majority of our sport diving range, including new products and, of course, show offers (these are available on our website until 12pm 30th October).

A little on our new products available for purchase at the show:

Mil-Spec Kevlar drysuit - a military spec drysuit for sport divers, from the tier 1 supplier to the UK MoD.

Arctic Survivor membrane drysuit, designed to deliver great value and all-round performance.

High impact ABS R.A.I.D. Cases - ultra-durable equipment cases with a high degree of waterproof capability.

Lastly, the 4000 lumen Varilux Tec torch - complete with hand mount. It's so new there's no link just yet!

Custom drysuit packages

We recently worked with Dumfries and Galloway Sub Aqua Club to put together a drysuit package for diving trainees at the club.

The package included a custom made drysuit with a drysuit bag featuring the club's logo. The image to the right shows everything else included. Beneath the drysuit and also included in the package was a Metalux Temperate undersuit.

Get in touch with us if you're interested in creating your own drysuit package for your diving club or group. There's countless options available in terms of custom made drysuits. Please note that a minimum order quantity will apply.

Dumfries and Galloway Sub Aqua Club: a very busy diving club
The 30-strong club is approaching its 50th anniversary. It offers diving training from novice to First Class Diver, and its members have dived in and around places such as Loch Long, Loch Fyne, Great Cumbrae, the Lake District, Tenerife and Malta. Some members have gone as far as Indonesia, Hawaii and Australia.

The club has been involved in some interesting projects in the past, including recovering a Spitfire warplane from a local loch, rediscovering the Duart wreck in the Sound of Mull and providing safety cover during the making of the film The River Child

Recently the club successfully gained a grant from Awards for All Scotland, a joint initiative from The Big Lottery Fund and Sport Scotland, for new diving equipment – the very same equipment featured here.

HID drysuit in 'The best of 2015'

After our HID drysuit was tested by SCUBA magazine, we learned that it was to feature in SCUBA's article 'The best of 2015', which was a great finish to the year. The review is below.
