What Goes in a Travel Save A dive Kit
Scuba trips are a lot of fun. Especial if you travel to foreign destinations. The problem with air travel is that you have to be aware how much stuff you bring. Still you have to be prepared for equipment failure that can occur during these trips. I will show you what you need to put in a travel save a dive kit to solve most problems.
Here is my list of items that I put in my save a dive kit. My wife always adds a set of contact lenses and some seasick medication. You can customize it as you see fit but the goal is to keep it small, light and portable.
