DEMA 2011; Hollis Gear acquires Recreational Rebreather design from VR Technology
Hollis Gear and VR Technology have teamed up to co-launch the Explorer Sport Rebreather. This is neither a fully closed circuit Rebreather nor a pure semi-closed system, but an intelligent hybrid that utilizes the best of both worlds. Apparently it’s compact, lightweight and extremely easy to use.
The Explorer is unique in using a single gas; Nitrox, and is electronically controlled to achieve an optimal balance of PPO2 and dive time. Plug and Play absorbent cartridges, easy guided setup with “go or no go”, CO2 tracking, and 2 hour design duration should make this a dream for any recreational diver. It’s also designed to meet the PADI ‘Type R’ requirement.
