    Measurements: 16’’ length x 12’’ width x 16’’ height. Made of high quality, tough black nylon, encasing a light weight, white polyethylene foam that features low water absorption and is fairly rigid (good impact strength). The two grommeted ventilation holes seen in the photo are on both sides of the bag. A large elastic topped pocket is on each side, for holding tool kits, checklists, logbooks, spares, etc. (There are no inside pockets). The bag handles are 1” wide straps of black polyester webbing. The bag closes up with two, large YKK zippers. We do not recommend the 500-901 helmet bag as a shipping container or packaging for your Kirby Morgan life support equipment!

For the diver that demands the rigorously tested, best selling larger shell of the Kirby Morgan® 37 coupled with the versatility of mounting brackets and port side cheek weight, the SuperLite® 17C is the ideal fit.

It features fiberglass and carbon fiber reinforced shell. The Quad-Valve™ exhaust system, which retrofits to most previous Kirby Morgan® Helmets, has less breathing resistance than the older single valve exhaust while providing an extremely dry hat. This system is recommended for diving in biologically contaminated water. Our SuperFlow® regulator is a proven design that provides excellent breathing characteristics over a wide range of depths.The SuperFlow® 350 is standard on this helmet.

The Helmet Shell is hand laid up glass fiber reinforced thermal setting polyester (fiberglass) with carbon fiber reinforcement at key points for added durability. It is light and highly impact resistant, and provides a heat/cold barrier as well as being an excellent electrical nonconductor. Kirby Morgan® has over 50 years experience in composite laminations.
