⚠️ Improper weighting can lead to a fatal dive

24 hours diving emergency helpline: (919) 684-9111

⚠️ Improper weighting is a leading casual factor to a fatal diving incident Divers Alert Network


⚠️ If you believe the weight for 2 divers cannot fit in the Weight Box, you are most likely overweighted and may die!  


⚠️ Don't die ⏤ Contact your local dive shop and sign-up for a buoyancy class to improve your skills   


Divers Alert Network recommends the below guide as a starting point to create your weight profile:

  • 10% of your body weight for a 6 mm wetsuit

  • 5% of your body weight for a 3 mm wetsuit


Additional considerations:

  • Body fat percentage will greatly influence how much weight the diver requires

  • Muscle has greater density than fat causing muscle to sink and fat to float

  • The size of your scuba tank

  • Drysuit undergarments

  • A diver is more buoyant in salt water than fresh water

  • An old wetsuit is less buoyant than a new wetsuit
