Kraken on a Kirby Morgan BOV

Fri Jun 21, 2019 4:47 pm

Which full face mask works well with the Argonaut Kraken for ice diving?

Will the Kraken hoses fit on the Kirby Morgan BOV? The BOV is advertised for use with rebreathers.

Also OTS has a rebreather hose connection for its Guardian mask. Can the Kraken hoses attach well to that mouthpiece?

I have heard the OTS Spectrum could be used with a Kraken. I own an OTS Spectrum and don't like it. The rubber is too pliable, and the mask frame presses hard on the bridge of my nose. And the chin pocket rides up a little, letting some water mist in, when I am using a DUI dryhood.

I have used an OTS Guardian for about six years in dive rescue work. In my opinion, it's a POS. Set up your Kraken with a VDH DSV and use a regular mask under the ice. The ice cream headache will subside in about a minute and the Kraken will breath ten times better than any mask configuration that you could come up with. YMMV
