The Apeks dSMB 1.4M is a decent size, closed-cell delayed Surface Marker Buoy with one of the first true oral inflation valves. Most dSMBs today have an inflation valve similar to your BCD but most divers orally inflate their dSMB to maintain buoyancy. The valves on most dSMBs can sometimes be tricky to orally inflate so Apeks fitted a valve specifically for orally inflating.
A dSMB has quickly become an essential piece of kit for every scuba diver so they can be seen on the surface. Apeks have taken their time building a dSMB and learnt from other's mistakes. The whole length of the SMB is welded and seamed so there isn't a seam that gets folded and weakened over time. The bottom of the dSMB is tidy and efficient without extra straps to get in the way, just a D-Ring to tie onto and a bungee to wrap it up with.
With a dSMB, you'll need a Reel or a Spool to send it up with. We love the Apeks LifeLine Range of Spools, the bright colours stand out and the build quality is exceptional. For most diving, the 15m Spool is the perfect size for a 5m safety stop.
