LIBERTY SIDEMOUNT REBREATHER
Training & Sales
The Divesoft Liberty Sidemount Rebreather (CCR) is a well made rebreather for cave diving, wreck diving, or for those looking for a bailout rebreather. The unit is self contained which means it clips on similar to an AL80 and has its own 2L (15cf) Oxygen cylinder and Diluent cylinder which means there is no fuss with plugging in additional offboard hoses. The frame is exceptional and is well thought out. The entire unit with the short canister stands just a little taller than an AL80. It’s neutral in the water and balances out nicely. The counter lung has a small water trap and dump valve to expel water. The DSV has a great design with the manual O2 and Dil valves right on the DSV which makes them easy to find and very clean. The unit comes with a 5.5lb radial scrubber and they offer a short canister that I highly recommend. The head has 2 solenoids that alternate, 4 oxygen sensors and 2 helium sensors along with rechargeable batteries. The handset(s) are small and the software is sophisticated yet easy to learn. The whole unit in a pelican air case without tanks weights 50lbs which is easy for travel!
