XS Scuba Surface Marker Buoy (SMB)
Divers are all supposed to carry a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB) to comply with national dive safety standards. That nice, but your safety is important with or without standards, so the smart diver always carries a surface marker buoy on every dive. XS Scuba’s Safety Marker Buoy is huge with a 7′ (2.13m) overall length (6’/1.83m out of water) and a 22″ (60cm) circumference. Built tough to last, Surface Marker Buoy meets military specification. Buoy is manufactured from tough urethane-backed, nylon material for durability and years of service. Buoy has SOLAS reflective tape on both sides for maximum visibility.
Surface Marker Buoy is equipped with elastic loop at top for attachment of a chemical light for night diving applications and has a stainless-steel D-ring for attachment of a slate. An overpressure relief valve with pull cord for manual release of air, a combination oral and BCD QD inflation valve with cap cover, anti-spill bottom with baffle to allow easy fill from any air device and it keeps buoy inflated until you empty it.
Buoy has an 18″ (45.7cm) step-thru leg harness with stainless-steel D-ring at bottom and lift handle at top for easy retrieval from a boat or dock. Buoy rolls up to a compact size and a hook and loop strap keeps it rolled and compact when not in use. Buoy can also double as a lift bag if needed with its 50 lbs. (13.6 kg) capacity and lift straps with stainless steel D-ring at the bottom. XS Scuba’s SMB is available in orange or yellow colors.
