    I noted that the description said that not only did it filter CO2, it also specifically mentioned filtering odors. :D

    My buddy used this last sunday: https://www.ccrtriton.com/ccr-triton-loisir-english.

    Great litle machine. I was really impressed. I made me wanting one too after hauling 12l doubles in the water twice :( :D He used no more than 20 bar diluent and a litle oxygen, I used about 210 bar of air during two dives. Both were real shallow dives.

    But it's a lot more complicated to operate than my doubles I must admit.

    If you don't know what you are doing, don't try this one at home. If you know what you are doing, I am sure you have a rig that makes this one look childish.

    Was reading the old tutorial (see pdf attachment) by Tom Rose...
    LOL
    He was a funny man

    EDIT
    I also found interesting this post on a Pirelli suit
    Unique diving apparatus

    Thanks for sharing that. I missed out on a chance to meet Tom when I was visiting his home state. I called him on the phone and he was very forthcoming with rebreather knowledge unfortunately the timing didn't work out. RIP Tom Rose.

    Tom was a friend of mine. He was a very nice guy and loved sharing what he know about rebreathers. I have had that very rebreather in my hands while listening to stories of diving it. He is missed by all who knew him.
    And in case anyone is wondering, he died of natural causes, nothing rebreather related.

    In his tutorial Tom quoted "Bob's great rebreather page" that should be this one below
