    I was going to buy my own stuff when I get back anyway. I'm always a little suspect of things offered a little too quickly in PI?

    depends where you buy it... mask, fins, wetsuits in top-quality are just cheaper here. also great BCD/reg-sets, not much savings here though.

    many people buy too fancy stuff "back home" and don't get any spare-parts in any other country where they usually go in vacation for diving. I had hundreds of fancy masks on vacation here where a normal mask-strap just did not fit. (same with fins).

    ...you can be sure that the diver did not bring his own spare-kit on the daytrip.

    .. shouldn't it be "!" instead of a "?"

    Thanks again for all the comments - Thanks Rhoody for the detail, that helps alot.

    I have purchased basic gear, Fins, Mask, Snorkel, and boots. I might consider buying a wetsuit, either in PI or before I leave.

    I have a few other questions that i will reserve for another thread that is non dive related.

    Rhoody or anyone who may know - is there somewhere in Bacolod or Sipalay that I can shop wetsuits? Will dive shops have some on hand for sale?

    Thanks.
