    Impeccably designed, easy to carry and perfectly packaged. The Blu3 team was easy to work with and everything arrived in a reasonable time.

    G,day Guys
    As most of you know I’ve been diving with the BLU3 Nemo since it’s first arrival and I’ve recovered roughly about $500,000 in GOLD and Diamonds I use to Scuba Dive but now With BLU3 it’s opened a whole new world of underwater exploration. NOW with the NEW BLU3 Nomad I’m able to dive at greater depths of 9 metre up to 60 minutes I just recovered a $17,900 GOLD DIAMOND Cartier Bangle this week in 6 metres of water best part of all these BLU3 Dive systems are airplane travel friendly. I don’t waste time and money refilling heavy Scuba tanks at dive shops any more as they come with swappable batteries the size of your mobile phone, simply recharge batteries at home or on the road to your next dive, now I can travel to remote locations and dive ALL DAY. BLUE also have the worlds first smart reg meaning I only use battery when I breath. THIS IS A WORLD FIRST and a BIG part of why I dive with BLU3. Check out our YouTube channel: Michael Oliver If your curious to see these AWESOME BLU3 Dive systems in ACTION
    Cheers Michael

    I tried my NOMAD out for the first time 2 weeks ago…I am an avid fossil collector in rivers and creeks of Florida…the unit it exceptionally portable and easy to use….as noted in a review above, the breathing takes a little getting used to as it is an on demand system…i used my unit all day and never exhausted even one battery….the only minor concern i had was the buoyancy of the unit as it seemed a bit off balance in a creek i was in…I contacted the Blu3 Team…i received immediate feedback during normal working hours with team questions and reassurances they would work to address the issue, including replacing the unit if necessary…excellent customer service! This really beats lugging around tanks and gear in some of the inhospitable and overgrown places I trek to….would recommend this unit to anyone interested in surface supply air system.

    Bought this for my boyfriend who would love to dive more, spear fishing, lobstering, but hesitates because of a severe back injury. This gives him the freedom to do so without all the heavy equipment. Also the shipping process
    Was so quick and flawless!

    Very cool, portable dive set. I love the ability to change batteries and do another dive, keeping me independent of scuba shops.
    The backpack is well designed and manufactured. I think you still need another bag for mask, fins, weight belt, booties, gloves, etc. but it is well sized not too bulky or heavy. When you first put the regulator in your mask it is a different feeling- the compressor only kicks on as you breathe. testing it in the living room- it is a little weird to breathe and then have the compressor kick on and vibrate a second later.

    If there was one thing I’d want changed it is the flag design- the wire that keeps it unfurled when diving also makes it hard to store. It is also hard to change out the battery while the hose is wrapped around the main unit.

    Awesome diving system love the mobility of the unit for travel its a great tool in my metal detecting hobby

    I’m an experienced scuba diver who is thrilled to have a portable means of spearfishing. The Nomad is the closest thing to freediving and has been incredible! I can quickly experience all the fun of scuba without the hassle of filling tanks. Thanks Blu3, looking forward to taking it to the BVI!

  8. Jim Mason

    I have thousands of dives through the years and most often find the sealife most beautiful is in the top 30 feet. This device makes it easy and works just as well as full scuba gear. No tank and regulator to deal with, just 10 pounds in the weight belt and off you go. Battery life is very good as well. It is light, easy to set up and breathes just like a scuba tank and regulator. I’m ordering my second one now.

    I’ve always wanted to scuba dive, without the scuba stuff. It all just seems intimidating. So after going over some alternatives, this seemed like the logical step. After you take the well put together online course, you’re pretty much ready to hit the water. The Nomad worked amazingly on its first us!. I was shocked at how user friendly the whole thing is and how comfortable I felt going out and using it. This is a really great product and I look forward to many more adventures with it!
