The Dive Rite Bellows Thigh Pocket is a perfect accessory if you lack a bellows pocket like those permanently attached to a wetsuit or drysuit thigh. It also enables you to keep the same items with you when you change suits.
The Thigh Pocket includes an innovative leg band made of a proprietary material used in bandages. The material holds up to saltwater and dries quickly, plus silicone strips placed on the inside of the band grip your exposure suit and keep the leg band in place. The pocket is attached via a buckle on the waist belt, allowing a diver to don or doff the thigh pocket without having to unbuckle the waist belt and slide the pocket off.
Inside our new pockets resides a 36-inch, looped lanyard to clip off reels, line markers and pocket lights. No more fumbling for the right tools, just pull out the lanyard, select the tool you need, and stuff the loaded lanyard back in the pocket. Lanyard too long? Simply cut and shorten the cord, re-tie the simple knot and cut off the excess. We've seen a few divers out there sporting their own homemade version. Now the rest of us can enjoy the same great idea.
