The Scuba Gear You Use

You use Tec diving equipment, to enhance your ability to deal with Tec diving conditions. Tec diving involves diving beyond the normal limits of recreational scuba diving. Participating in Tec diving requires additional experience, training and (of course) equipment. In recreational diving you use one scuba tank but Tec divers typically wear twin cylinders, plus one or more additional ones under their arms, each with different gas blends.
