    What do you consider essential safety equipment on a dive?

    Interesting discussion on a recent trip, where people were talking about EPIRBs, and then got on to what they considered as essential safety equipment they would carry on every dive. What do you consider essential kit you wouldn't go diving without in the UK, and does this differ from your warm-water set-up?
