    Can anyone tell me what exactly constitutes soft gear?

    I need to organise a very cheap weekend trip to Sodwana, can anyone recommend accomodation?

    Cheers

    Hi Gali - sorry - only getting to this thread, now...

    Here you are:

    Soft gear:
    - wet-suite (usually full-length, 3 to 5mm)
    - mask
    - snorkel
    - booty's
    - fins
    - weight-belt (with of without weights)

    That's it!

    Cool!
    The following are "hard gear":
    - BC
    - regulator set
    - cylinder

    These are "optional":
    - dive watch / dive computer
    - underwater camera
    - flashlight
    - reel

    This is DEFINITELY A MUST:
    - SMB (Surface marker buoy)
