When you're new to diving there's a confusing array of product out there. What should you buy? Your instructor is a good place to start, but if their kit is 10 years old then it might not actually be available anymore!
The other big consideration is the type of diving you're going to do: If you're cold water diving or want some lightweight kit for travel that's going to have a big influence on your final decision.
We have some dedicated categories for certain types of diving but here we thought we'd bring together a 'good, better, best' selection of 3 products from each of the key product areas: Computers, regulators, BCDs, wetsuits, masks and fins.
This is your start point. You can head down as many enjoyable rabbit holes as you like from here!
