Do I need a special dive bag for regulator and gauges?
Regulator and gauges are delicate pieces of equipment. You can buy padded dive bags that are designed specifically for carrying this type of gear. This will make sure your instruments and regulator are protected during storage and transportation. As an additional precaution keep your regulator bag as hand luggage if you are travelling long distances for your dive. This will help to prevent it being knocked around in luggage compartments.
What's a general all rounder gear bag?
There are lots of really good rucksack and holdall style dive bags. These offer lots of space for storing away dive kit including fins, boots, gloves, dry clothing etc. If you have a lot of dive equipment then you may want to consider bags with integral wheeled sections. These enable you to wheel the bags when on flat surfaces which can save a lot of effort.

What are dry bags and dry boxes used for?
Dry bags are fantastic for storing things that you do not want to get wet.
