I have a cuff dump and an auto dump.

There are two complaints with the Apex Low profile

1: It doesn’t work

2: It leaks

My first one on my old Otter suit didn’t work

My second one on my 03 suit works but leaks. So I have had personal experience of both of the standard reported problems with Apex Low Profile units.

I fitted a Sitech to my Otter, which worked great and didn’t leak. So as a result I am firmly in the Sitech camp

As for cuff dumps they always leek but its nice to have redundancy

As for pulling the neck I did consider that, but only briefly.  I can't actually get to the edge of the seal with hood in place and kevlar weave fingers on my gloves would make grabbing it very hard.  By the time I had got any air out it would have been too late anyway.

Thanks Lou that saved me a bit of typing as it was exactly what I was about to say  


Divers Wharehouse advertise and sell Sitech valves.
