    That image is in very poor taste. I am absolutely flabbergasted that someone would post an image like that to a commercial site. It's not amusing - it's disgusting. :shakehead

    As if they haven't had enough negative press in the past... although their products seem to be top-notch by all accounts.

    Cheers,

    Do you not watch the Oscars because of Cher? (I just don't watch 'em. Not seeing Cher is an ancillary benifit)

    Wouldn't this cause problems for the diver who, yesterday, was concerned with where to grab the chest strap in an air share exercise?

    Been in their shop, purchased products from them and found them to be courteous, professional and very helpful. And yes, I would buy from them again.

    All I can say is: "Who took the photos!?"

    I mean, the lighting, the colours (shudder), the composure- yuck!, the shadows they are utterly horrible!

    (And it would help if someone was smiling...)

    I feel someone is going to get a kick in the butt for this...

    Truth be told, I was shocked to see this on their site.

    I agree that Salvo makes really solid products, but personally I find this sort of "advertising" offensive. In my opinion its a real misstep on their part, they have great stuff, great customer service, so why lower themselves to this level? and yeah yeah yeah the human body is a beautiful thing and I aint no prude, but anyone with half a brain could see how repugnant this would be to many people.

    ...if they really want to go down this path, then they should post an "equally obviously enhanced" male verson for the rest of the population.
