We all know that moms make the best dive buddies, so to celebrate moms everywhere, we built a 2021 Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
If there’s one thing that diving and life have in common, it’s that when we’re starting out, we need someone to show us the ropes. Diving requires a lot of pre-existing knowledge spanning the realms of personal safety, gear maintenance, and so much more.
And if you’re anything like us, you had a mom (or an amazing role model) who was willing to let you try out adventurous situations that let you gain confidence in your underwater explorations.
Just ask some of our favorite marine mammals: Moms are the best! That’s why—this Mother’s Day—we put together a 2021 Mother’s Day Gift Guide to give you some ideas.
Not sure what to get your ma? Dive deep into our suggestions and find something for her to enjoy during her adventures at the local pool, beach, river or lake!
What to Get? Here’s a Gift Guide for Mother’s Day
Flowers are nice, and you should definitely send a card, but we love giving gear because it offers a reminder of our love long after the special day has come and gone.
Years later, your mom will still be flopping around in those fins or logging her dives with that computer you got her in ’21. Those memories, between generations, can endure for a lifetime.
BARE ExoWear (Honorable mention: Nixie closeout)
If there’s anything a mom appreciates, it’s staying warm. And just because it’s almost summer and the air’s warming up doesn’t mean the water will warm up, too. Even tropical waters can be uncomfortably brisk, so offer your mom the next best thing and giver the gift of ExoWear for Mother’s Day!
ExoWear is designed to keep you warm with OMNIRED™ technology and is great for tons of different water sports like diving, surfing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. No matter what your mom enjoys, she’ll be warmer doing it in BARE’s most versatile line of full suits, jackets, tops, pants, shorts, and accessories.
Atomic Aquatics T3
If you’d like to give your mom the best titanium regulator that money can buy on Mother’s Day, look no further than the Atomic Aquatics T3.
Legendary for its long-lasting durability, incredibly lightweight and corrosion-resistant materials make the T3 a perfect choice for travel in exotic, remote locations where finding service is next to impossible.
If you want to ensure your mom will never need a replacement in the field, give your mom the gift that’ll keep on giving via Atomic’s T3 Regulator.
Hollis M1 Mask
But staying warm is only half the battle, and once mom’s took the plunge, she’ll want to see where she’s going. That’s why, for superlative optical clarity and total utility and long-term performance, we recommend the Hollis M1 Mask.
The M-1 Mask raises the bar for optical quality and distortion-free vision. The lens is an extra clear glass which is valued for its attractive appearance and optical qualities. The low iron content produces a higher light transmittance and a reduced green tint inherent in other glasses. This makes the lens distortion free and helps improve color and visibility in low light conditions underwater, so no matter the conditions, mom will have the best visibility possible.
Oceanic Geo 4.0
Combine the best of dive logging algorithmics with an updated stylish look in Oceanic’s GEO 4.0 Dive Computer. It’s easy to use, easy to read and also makes collecting and storing data a breeze with the DiverLog+ App.
Give the gift of GEO 4.0 and make it easier for your mom to adjust dual Nitrox mixes, switch the Dual Algorithm™, gas mixes, user display and alarms—all on the go!
Post-dive, she can download her dive instantly to her mobile device, view her most recent dive profile and information, add photos and videos, and use the search query to filter by location, dive type, depth and more.
Over years of use, she’ll think of you every time she adjusts a gas mix or tracks her oxygen intake. Now that’s real love!
Stahlsac Steel 22
Assuming your mom loves adventures and is always on the go, she’d probably dig the Stahlsac Steel 22in Carry-on!
As the most compact offering in the Steel Line, the 22in offers overhead-bin convenience with the Steel Line’s Wet/Dry Technology. One compartment stows damp, used gear and another keeps your fresh best separate so mom can have her adventure both ways.
Water-resistant zippered entry points yield easy access to possessions and durable side-grip handles make bag management a breeze. For you, mom, or anyone, the Steel 22in is the perfect bag for a quick weekend getaway or dive mission.
Zeagle Zena BCD
Built from the legendary template of Zeagle’s best-in-class BCD offerings, the Zena is the best women’s BC available on the market. And not only that, through Zeagle’s CustomZ program, we can create a bespoke BC for your mom designed right down to the stitch and style.
Even if mom wants to skip the custom treatment, the Zena’s Personal Fit System (PFS) allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted so she can dial it in for maximum comfort.
Plus, the Zena’s twin waist and hip band system provides a way to securely position the weights and buoyancy below her waist and around the body’s center of buoyancy. These straps adjust to fit the waist and hips independently, while the elastic front panels provide outstanding fit and comfort that’s ready for any mission—and most importantly—any mom!
