XDeep Ghost scuba diving wing unboxing & first impression

Here we take a look at the Ghost from XDeep, a Polish diving equipment manufacturer.

This single tank wing weighs in at just 2.3KG and is ideal for the scuba diver that likes to travel without worrying about airline excess baggage charges!

Although not classed as a technical wing, it has some of the features that technical dive equipment features.

Our thanks to Piotr at XDeep for sending us this de-luxe model over to review, and to Andy Fenn from their UK distributor Blue Orb for getting it to us at late notice.

For more information on XDeep diving products visit their website.

The Ghost is available in the UK from several diving outlets including Divelife in Manchester.
