Proposition 65

Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – Warnings Required

WARNING: This Dive Right In Scuba product can expose you to cretin chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov

We appreciate your decision to purchase Dive Right In Scuba products to provide the best in water experience. We take our job seriously! You may have noticed that our products now show a warning label at point of sale referring to carcinogens and birth defects. You may also have begun to see warnings related to carcinogenic substances or substances causing birth defects prominently displayed in hotel lobbies, hospitals, or other places of business recently. These warnings are required by the State of California, and we believe that an explanation of the California statute legislating the requirement will provide you valuable information regarding the relative risks of the chemicals that may be present in consumer products.

In 1986, the State of California passed the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act; otherwise known as “Proposition 65” or "Prop 65". Prop 65 requires businesses like ours to disclose to individuals the presence of chemicals listed in the Act prior to point of sale. The regulations implementing this Act have been amended over time with the most recent updates will take effect on August 30, 2018. There are more than 900 chemicals on the Prop 65 Chemical List, including many chemicals that are found in components of a wide array of consumer goods or are used to manufacture components that make up consumer goods.

Prop 65 does not establish acceptable concentrations for any listed chemical; however, the agency which enforces it has established what is called "safe harbor" exposure levels for about one third of these chemicals below which warnings are not required. These "safe harbor" are established for listed carcinogens based on the quantity of the chemical that would result in one excess case of cancer in an exposed population of 100,000, assuming lifetime (70-year) exposure at the level in question. A similar process is used to establish safe harbor levels for listed reproductive toxicants. Additional information in plain language on safe harbor levels is available from the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment at http://oehha.ca.gov/Prop65/background/p65plain.html

At Dive Right In Scuba, the safety of your in water experience is our highest priority. We go to great effort to select materials that offer superior value, quality, and durability while also being generally recognized as safe and reliable for the full life of the product. Dive Right In Scuba also works closely with many regulatory bodies, such as the US Coast Guard and Underwriter’s Laboratories, to ensure the longevity of your on-water safety through targeted selection of durable, long lasting materials and components that undergo significant validation testing before being used to manufacture end items. Sometimes the safety promise we offer appears at odds with the health and safety requirements of other legislation in certain parts of the world when some regulations are updated ahead of others. To ensure compliance with applicable legal requirements, Dive Right In Scuba has placed a warning on products that contain a Prop 65 listed chemical, either directly or as a part of the raw material supply chain. This allows us to comply with California law and provide our California consumers with the disclosure required by Prop 65, while still promising the safest on water experience possible.

Dive Right In Scuba is working diligently with regulatory bodies and our own manufacturing partners to continue to improve our product performance and reduce the presence of less desirable chemicals. Water is a precious resource we all share that is important to the health and well-being of our planet and all people. Our goal is to continue to enhance your water life experience while reducing our overall impact to the planet and, in particular, its waterways. While it is a bit of a juggling act to achieve, we are confident you will see continued improvement in both the immediate and long term future. We hope this explanation will enable you to understand why you will be seeing warnings on some our products.

Thank you for your continued use of Dive Right In Scuba products.

    These are extremely well made lights! I was shocked when I received them at how nice they were for the money, definitely will be using these for backups or even primary on easy rec dives. You can’t go wrong with these in my opinion.

    Great light, high quality metal, no leaks, twist on/off and runs on alkaline batteries. Great backup light but could also serve as a primary

  3. My goto backup light for 7 years review by Christopher Painter on 6/5/2019
    Overall Rating

    I dive a Light monkey 35w VF as my primary and two of these DRIS 1000s as backups. I love the simple heavy duty reliable design of these with the 3C battery configuration that I only need to check a couple times a year. They are also crazy bright. My first light lasted 7 years until my kids took it on a camping trip and abused it. I didn't even need to shop around to see what other options are out there. I just ordered another one of these and 3 days later it was in my mailbox.

    This is a true signature item. If you need it as a primary check out some of the variants that included rechargeable batteries and soft goodman gloves/handles.

  4. Looks like a good light, have not had it wet yet... review by Chris on 5/23/2019
    Overall Rating

    Light is well constructed, but a bit heavy vs. polymer competition (with batteries and bolt snap I get about .5 kg or 1.1 lbs). The light head measures about 46.06mm (1.813 in) in diameter with the main body being about 32mm (1.26 in). The twist action to turn the light on/off has a somewhat stiff but smooth action. The wide centered lanyard attachment point makes attaching your bolt snap simple. I think that DRIS could do a little better on the price for these (That is the only reason for my reduction to a 4 star rating), but it does include a set of C batteries for the price. It is a bit wider than I would like but just about any C cell light will be and with my concerns about Lithium Ion batteries it may end up being the one I pair with a second...

  5. Great light. review by Murph on 3/22/2019

    I can’t believe how good this light is. I originally ordered it to use as a back up. But it was such a bright and solid light it became my primary.

  7. Great Little Light review by Anthony on 9/20/2017
    Overall Rating

    Very bright. Worked great on deep Great Lakes dives. Cut through the muck very well. I bought 2 as backups, but could easily use as a primary if needed. I would highly suggest these, and for the price they cant be beat. Grab 1 or 2 for your gear bag.

  9. Simply Great review by Jeremy on 8/27/2017
    Overall Rating

    I use this light as a backup to my Light Monkey light when I am diving in the caves, and as my primary light pretty much anywhere else. I simply love it. Funny story... I was doing Full Cave Cert, and did a primary light failure drill. I had two of these in my pocket. After my primary "failed", I switched to this, and the instructor thought I turned back on my Light Monkey primary. She took it, I pulled out another, then she took that, and handed me a crappy light to exit the cave with. I highly recommend this light.

  10. Really Good Light for the Money review by Jeff on 5/17/2017
    Overall Rating

    I left my Scuba Pro 720 on a dive a few weeks ago. This is nearly identical to that light except it is brighter and cheaper. I did lose 2 features over the SP 720. This doesn't seem to have the 50% power mode the SP 720 and it doesn't have the over preasure valve.

  11. Excellent affordable light review by Robin on 3/12/2017
    Overall Rating

    This light is super bright even in poor vis and the beam angle is perfect for shining under rocks and communicating with my buddy. I added the rechargeable battery pack which is very convenient as the charger comes with a car adapter so I can charge it on the drive to the dive site.

  12. Great light! review by Ryan on 2/4/2017

    This light is durable and very bright. Fits in my drysuit pocket and the twist on/off head is very secure. Did I mention bright!! Price for a light like this is unbeatable....fast and reliable service from DRIS and it's a no brainer. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality light.

    this light was recommended to me by my instructor. i was surprised with the way it was built. very sturdy and feels like it could endure many dives. also, the light was very bright and even cheaper than other lights with less lumens. i ordered this with a handle which fits perfectly with the light. good job DRIS!

  14. Amazing Light review by Gary on 8/26/2016
    Overall Rating

    You can now get rid of your huge green lantern because this light will replace it ASAP. After shopping around for canister lights i decided to go on this one from the reviews and it speaks the truth, hands down worth the money. there is no need to waste 500 bucks on a canister light because well lets face it, there are maybe 2% of us that actually need it. great product!

  15. Great light! review by michelle on 8/16/2016
    Overall Rating

    Used this in Lake Huron and it worked great. Also used in a quarry dive when the water was really murky from people kicking on the bottom, cut through the muck pretty good. I was worried it was going to be too long but I can fit it into my BC pocked and clip it to my D ring so I don't have to have it strapped to my wrist. My husband is already asking to take it out for hunting season. He may just have to buy his own light.

  16. 1000 lumen dive light review by Karinda on 7/13/2016
    Overall Rating

    One of the best and brightest dive lughts I have used so far. Perfect for the low viz quarries that I like to dive. It's durable and easy to use and it brightens up a larger area. If you're in a group, it is definitely a plus to have. I would and have definitely recommend this to my buddies.

  17. this light is a Tank! Bombproof! AND Bright!!! review by TY Cobb on 6/12/2016
    Overall Rating

    Built like a mag light, solid construction, ive had mine for years and the thing is like new! still easy to turn on and off! i hardly change the batteries as i mostly use it to look under ledges while fishing.

    been to the Florida keys and this was the brightest light on the whole boat!

    A Must Have!

    ive dropped it on the boat deck no worries with the solid construction! this light is my primary light. ive had mine over 100 dives no issues.

    If you need a rock solid light, easy to use, easy to replace batteries, bright as the sun, and nearly indistructable, Look no farther!

  18. Bright but BIG review by Daniel on 5/20/2016
    Overall Rating

    This light is bright and works well enough for my blue water night dives. However, it is BIG. Uses the common "twist to on/off" method so be careful not to loosen it too much. Would use this as a primary only, so that you can turn it on before the dive and off after you get out. A little large to be a backup. Also, for some reason, even if I left it "off" mine would turn on at a very dim level once I got to depth.

  19. Could not have expected better review by Sourmug on 4/13/2016
    Overall Rating

    This light is more than what we expected. A 1000 lumen light that is compact and easy to handle. Fits in BC pocket and the twist on is easy to use. We used this daily for over a week in Florida and It bounced multiple times on the boat deck. Will order another as soon as it is back in stock.

  20. Quality that you immediately notice review by win on 3/21/2016
    Overall Rating

    I just received this light, but I can already tell that it is higher quality that most lights in this price range. It has three o-rings to make sure that no water gets in and has a spare set of 3. You can feel the heft to this light as soon as you pick it up and it doesn't feel cheap at all like some lights are. I really like that it is C cell batteries instead of recharging batteries because I always forget to charge or my batteries end up not holding the rated charge. It is very bright and has a nice relatively tight beam. I may purchase the shorty in the future or another one of those if I like it as much as I think I will.

  21. Awesome! review by Chris on 3/7/2016
    Overall Rating

    I have a very nice LED canister light yet I always find I'm using this DRIS light. It's very solidly built, has a great burn time and so far has been very reliable. Oh it's super bright as well. I attached a SS snap to it with one of the DRIS bungee/clips and stow it in my drysuit pocket.

    I highly recommend this light for both below and above water.

  22. Great Light review by Richard on 1/27/2016
    Overall Rating

    There is not much to say on this one. I did a comparison to my can light Dive Rite LED LUX 4. This light is just a tad brighter than my can light and way more focused. I've debated buying a third light in place of my can light. This acts as a more focused beam whereas my can light feels like a flood light. I would buy this again but I would also consider getting the short. Decisions Decisions...

  23. Works, but bulky review by Erik on 12/12/2015
    Overall Rating

    In retrospect I wish I'd have gone with the shorty or something I can clip off/pocket easily. It's a long, heavy flashlight. The light is reasonably good for what it promises -- there are better but much more expensive solutions.

  25. Great Light and Excellent Customer Service. review by oldpeanut on 10/15/2015
    Overall Rating

    I have compared DRIS 1000 Lumen Dive Light with other lights and I found out it got probably one of the best cost/performance value in the 3-C battery light category. I especially like the feature of triple o-rings seal which makes it water resistant even I turn the light on and off underwater.

    Customer service from DRIS is always great.

  26. Solid no frills, wins review by Roninghost on 9/6/2015
    Overall Rating

    I have had this dive light and am getting 2 more they work perfectly as backups and as primary lights. While traveling using C batteries made it very simple and fast to change the batteries and though some mention deviation in burn times I had close to 5 hrs of great light while cave diving.

    I would recomend this as a solid not frills light that does that its made for.

    Safe diving


  27. Didn't last very long review by FM on 8/29/2015
    Overall Rating

    It failed within about six months of using it. Not sure why it didn't appear to leak just stop working. It's also kind of long not real comfortable, there are other lights that are just as bright for less money and better compact. I do not recommend .

  28. A great light at fantastic price! review by Wolfey on 8/25/2015
    Overall Rating

    I bought one of these lights to try as a back up to replace the 3 C cell Intovas I had that both leaked. I compared it to my LED1000 lumen can light at 130 feet in Lake Erie and I could not see much difference in the beams. I was so impressed I bought a second one. I have had them both to 250 plus on the Gunilda with no failures. These lights will be my back on my next cave trip. Not only did they come with batteries but they were name brand batteries, not imported no name junk. If you are looking for a great primary light for recreational diving or a good back up for cave/technical diving you can't go wrong with one of these.

  29. Nice Light. review by Pat on 8/17/2015
    Overall Rating

    Got this for a trip to the Sea of Cortez. I liked the goodman handle and how bright it was but got more like 3 hrs of burn time not the 5 I was told. Still a very good light.
    Just make sure to sand down the edge of the plastic goodman handle. It scrapped my bare skin raw when trying it on.

    All in all, 5 stars still.

    The brightness of this light is incredible. Almost rivals my canister light. There is nothing that I can say about this light, except that I should have brought a second one when I ordered the first one.

  34. Best light for the size and cost review by Rob on 4/12/2015
    Overall Rating

    I bought this light last summer. It has worked flawlessly so far. I change the batteries every 3 to 4 dives and have never ran the batteries down. I designed and 3D-printed a clip that straps to the side of my wrist. So during a dive I don’t need to hold it and have full use of my hand (it was too large for the back of my hand). This light has a narrow 11 deg beam, so the 1000 lumens is very effective night or day. It was also great during day dives in Jamaica for looking in and under coral to see what was hiding there.
    ...just about to buy 2 more for dive buddies.

  35. Best in class review by Roninghost on 4/5/2015
    Overall Rating

    I purchased this as my tertiary light and it has now become my primary, good light and battery duration, simple to clean and maintain. Would definitely recommend getting a bolt-snap to attach it to your wing or bcd.

  36. Unbelievable Value and Performance review by Gregory S on 3/17/2015
    Overall Rating

    I have 30 dives with this light and I am absolutely impressed. I have not had to change batteries yet. I dive in the Pacific NW where visibility can be quite limited and all dives (whether day or night) are accompanied by a dive light. This bad boy gets the job done and the price is unbeatable. Don't hesitate to buy one.

    Got this light for Xmas of 2013 and it looked good from the start. I used it on about 6 dives when it started to cut in and out on me. I lost confidence with it's reliability because no matter what I tried I just couldn't keep it from failing at the wrong time. Now it won't power up at all and has become a nice paper weight.

  39. Does the job! review by Debbie on 1/27/2015

    I dive in cold green saltwater and freshwater...where 15 feet of viz is the norm. This light does the job for me, compact, nice tight beam and fits nicely into my drysuit leg pocket as a backup. My primary is the 1000 shorty as they came out with the shorty after I bought this one. Love them both!

    I bought one of these refurbished by DRIS and it worked wonderfully, it was powerful and had a great beam, makes an excellent backup light. However the lanyard attached to mine broke rather quickly and I lost the light within the first few dives of owning it though i'll probably pick another one up in the future.

  43. Awesome light review by rob on 11/23/2014
    Overall Rating

    This is my second one - I lost the first climbing aboard a boat. It was zip-tied and bolt-snapped to my BCD; new one is now SS binered and triple-wrapped and stitched corded to BCD. These work great - small enough to be stowed, but powerful in the dark. At 3 meters, it has about a 1/4 meter bright circle, and then a 1 meter still bright secondary illumination area (which is still brighter than many buddies' lights).
    Aluminum casing means it survives normal uses - I just needed to improved my retention system.

    We have two of these and use them as primary dive lights. They're slightly on the large side but very sturdy. Battery usage is excellent and we can usually get 3 night dives from one set of rechargeable batteries before the light dims too noticably. Highly recommended for anybody looking for a well priced good quality dive light.

  47. Reliable review by Rory on 10/20/2014
    Overall Rating

    I purchased 2 of these this summer and after ~120 dives with them I'm now comfortable enough to write a review.

    They're nearly as bright as my 25w primary light, have a narrow enough beam to signal, provide at least 4-5 hrs of burn time, have an excellent attachment point to tie a small boltsnap, and best of all they seem to be very reliable - it takes a lot of turning to get past both o-rings so it's unlikely these are flooding by accident.

    I thought this light was too good to be true for the price, it's not. This light is great! It out performs the primary light that I was using for years. For a primary or a back up light, you can't go wrong with this one.

  52. High Value Performer review by Steve on 6/8/2014
    Overall Rating

    Finding the perfect high-powered light for dark New England diving can be difficult due to wide beam angels, but the DRIS 1000 lumen light nailed it.

    The 8 degree beam angle is perfect for cutting through particulate matter floating through the water to aim a nice hot spot wherever it is needed (often under rocks looking for lobsters). I'm into my second season using it and it is still going strong with just a few war marks from dropping it.

    This light has 3 o-rings for added flood protection and should easily withstand normal deeper dives with ease. If you take care when replacing batteries to clean off sand and other debris from the o-rings (and lube, if necessary) you will own it for a lifetime without problems.

    The one negative is that the lanyard that comes with the light is totally inadequate - frankly, useless. The landyard itself works well with the spring-tension tightener, but the gate style metal clip on the end is extremely flimsy and resulted in losing my light during my short dive. Luckily, we found it and it has performed flawlessly ever since replacing it with something better. This is a non-issue for me because I prefer to just assume free clips and lanyards are not durable enough for continued salt-water diving.

    My father dove with it to try it out and was instantly sold on these. Extremely durable and rugged body makes no issue with rough, rocky shore entries or fishing lobsters from deep holes. It would not be a winner for warmer waters where visibility is very as as it would likely wash out whatever subject matter you were viewing. A wider angle 40 degrees and up would work much better for that purpose.

    Thanks DRIS!

    Initially I bought this as a backup light for recreational and technical diving, however it is bright enough to suffice as a primary for cave diving. I used it in the caves of Mexico and it was fantastic. I love the fact that it is compact, very bright, and uses commonly found batteries. It seems robust and comes now with both a soft handle and a hard handle. I tell everyone I know about this light.

    I recently got the opportunity to use the 1000 lumen dive light by DRIS while I was scuba diving with a few friends. Until then, I would have never considered buying a dive light because, put simply, they cost too much for the amount of use I would get out of one. To my surprise, this light was as good - if not better - than all the other lights I used during this trip (and at a fraction of the cost). I've already ordered one and I am eagerly waiting it's arrival.

    Diving condions: ~15meters, low vis.

    The Dris 1000 provides an extremely bright white light with plenty of punch. It has a nice hot spot and an incredibly amount of spill. I have not tried it in water yet but it is much brighter then any other dive light I own.

    Shipping was fast and came with batteries included. DRIS was awesome as usual.

    After further use of this light on a wreck dive at 30m I can defiantly say it is one of the best lights I have ever used. It is very bright and very sturdy.. The only complaint is the small clip for it which I removed and replaced with another larger more sturdy clip.. I am using the clip it came with for another item that is smaller/lighter.... I purchased two of these and do not regret it one bit.

    I bought the light with the elastic goodman handle for use as a primary until I could afford a proper can light. I'm very pleased with this light. It's well built, easy to direct with the goodman handle, and great (simple and unobtrusive) for leading night dives.

    Only complaint is the lack of setup directions with the handle. Very pleased, 10/10 light.

    This thing revolutionizes how I view my backup light. It is brighter than my dive buddy's hollis 16w primary can light and darn near as bright as my 21w HID can light. The beam is a very nice tight and bright spot which is perfect for signalling and has a decent amount of spill which illuminates dark areas well should a primary fail. For people that aren't running a can light and looking for a primary, this light in a handheld sock would be amazing.

    Wow! That's all I can say.

    I got this light after my buddy showed me his. We had just jumped in on a night dive off a liveaboard. His light was off and I was about 20 feet below him. Suddenly, I was hit by an intense spotlight. I turned and looked upward, thinking the boat had just turned on its lights to signal us to come back. I could tell the light was coming from a source other than the boat, but was unable to see where or what it was from. I hovered for a few seconds as the light came closer. Only then was I able to make out that my buddy had turned on this light.

    My 220 lumen light was no match for this light and I could have easily turned mine off and put it away and just used his for more than adequate illumination for the both of us.

    It has a nice, concentrated beam and is built solidly. You won't be disappointed.

    I needed this light for a Friday night dive, with limited time for shipping. Debbie called me the same night I ordered, to discuss shipping options and reassured me that it would make it in time for my event. It was shipped with standard shipping at her advice (saving me money) with no need for special shipping charges. I had to work Friday and when I got done early I pulled into the drive and the shipping truck pulled in right behind me. Perfect. The light performed just like I had heard it would, and I had a great dive. Quality product, quality staff, hassle free shopping...I just bought a new set of regs tonight and wouldn't think of ordering anywhere else.

    This thing is a beast!! It's built like a tank and looks good to boot! it's rediculously bright, so don't shine it in your eyes or your Dive Buddy's. If so, you'll have to lead the offended party on a blind dive!

    all the previously posted praise of this light is true and I can only echo what has already been expressed. However, one thing I can comment specifically is on the customer service offered by Debra, Rich and the whole DRIS Crew. Here's how the drama unfolds:

    Found out about the totally awesome DRIS 1000 Lumen light 2 weeks before a dive trip. Order one. e-mail out of stock. Crap. said they'd let me know ASAP about it since I had a pending trip. e-mailed the next day to say it was being shipped. Had it with a week to spare. The light IS totally awesome ( Buy one, You'll see..) But so is the customer service and follow through with Dive Right In Scuba!! Thanks!

    Great light, and the price is even better. It is extremely bright. I tested it to 100' where it was completely dark. This light puts some canister lights to shame. I use it is a primary light attached on a bolt snap to my shoulder D-ring. I use a bungee cord to secure its head to the shoulder strap at the bottom, so that it doesn't dangle around, but fits nicely under my arm pit. When I need it, I just pull the head out of the bungee, but leave its butt attached to my shoulder D-ring. This system works very well, as I can let go off it and it just hangs down from my shoulder or I could stove it away by fitting its head back through the bungee cord.

    It is a fairly heavy light. You need to watch your weighting. I take off 2lb when I bring it along on a dive. This light is not the best choice for travel.

    It is a very solid built light. I banged it around quite a bit, only few scratches. It is made to last.

    The only thing I wish that the beam was slightly wider and the light was a bit smaller. Other than that, it's an excellent choice for the price. Thanks DRIS for a great product and a great service.

    I intended to use my Sola1200 as a primary light and bought the DRIS1000 as a backup. Now I often find myself using it as a primary as it gives a tighter beam and serves better in a more murky water. It is a very bright and strongly built piece of kit especially for the price. The only thing that I could mention as a drawback is that the bezel is rather smooth and not very easy to turn. In cold water with thick gloves it takes some effort to switch the light on or off. The process of buying it, however, was a pure pleasure - as always with Mike at DRIS.:)

    Upon opening the package I noticed how well built the light is. This is not a cheap plastic light. Using it out of the water it is very bright but using it at night especially with camera's it is almost to bright. It is a very direct light without a super wide beam pattern. We used it on the manta night dive in Hawaii. The brightness of the light really helped to attract the plankton and we had a really good experience. We had to rent lights for the rest of our group for a later night dive and there batteries died within the 45 minute night dive, where as my light has been through 2 night dives and countless amount of time looking into crevices. I will be buying these or the short one for the rest of my family. My only complaint is the that the strap that comes with it is a little flimsy and it broke on one of our first dives. We have since used some paracord and kept on diving with the lights. I would buy again.

    I had heard so many good things about this light on scuba board and have been thinking about getting a light for diving for a while now. It arrived quickly and it seems to be be very solid. I saw the 3 o rings when I put in the batteries that came with the light. I turned it on and man this thing is bright. I haven't had a chance to get it into the water yet. We are headed to Florida and the keys later this month and I am going to try it out there. The only thing I worry about is dropping it. I agree with some of the reviews on hear saying that maybe they should have gotten the shorty for a primary light because they can use rechargeables double A's instead of burning through a bunch of C batteries. I dunno though, I should post an update after I have used it for awhile. Over all I am so glad I bought this instead of the big cannon lights at the dive shop, it is a much better deal.

It is even small enough to fit in my BC pocket, and I wear an xs BC. We haven't used it on a dive yet, but I'm impressed enough to buy another one for myself. And the price truly can't be beat- I couldn't find anything comparable to it under $200. My order shipped quickly too. I'm a happy customer.

    Outstanding value in dive lights! Purchased a couple for an upcoming night dive (our first) and was glad I did as the dive operator had "loaner" lights that looked like pen lights underwater. These lights are extremely bright with a nice wide pattern. Also, they use commonly available batteries. I carried one around topside for walks on the beach-it appears to be very durable. Get a retractor for it and clip it to your BC. If your BC doesn't have a strap to secure it, get a small bungy to hold it in place for pre-dive and after dive. This light is heavy but not so much that it was a problem. A great value in lights.

    3C DRIS 1K (Long) vs. 1K Shorty
    There are plenty of reviews on this light and I don’t have anything to add, but since I also own a Shorty I thought I’d compare them for people trying to decide between the two. First off, both are excellent lights, good build quality and an excellent value. Performance wise it’s a toss-up depending upon if you care more about hand mounting/beam or run time. The Shorty wins on beam, having a little tighter and brighter of a hot spot with similar spill. Run time of course goes to the longer unit with four times as much. Unless you have specific needs on how to carry and use the light, both are winners.
    The Shorty works very well on the back of the hand which for me is its most important feature. It is easy to put in a pocket, but a bit too short to work well clipped off to a shoulder D-ring and bungeed in like technical divers do. If you hold the Shorty in your hand for your dive, it’s not as comfortable as the narrower Long light even though it weighs less. You will only get two dives per set of batteries and with noticeable dimming as you go past 60 minutes total dive time.
    The Long light works well clipped off to a shoulder D-ring and bungeed in like technical divers do, but doesn’t fit in some pockets. Its beam is a close second place to the Shorty and the run time is bright for about four hours and usable for at least one more. The long battery life, more than the size or mounting options is what drove me to pick it and not another Shorty as my backup light.
    For recreational diving I have one of each, using the Shorty with rechargeable batteries on the back of my hand as my primary and the Long with alkaline batteries as a backup. If the Shorty gets too dim near the end of my second dive I switch to the Long so I always have good light and almost never buy batteries.

    I couldn't pass up on the deal to get one of these guys after hearing many talk positively on Scuba Board about DRIS. At first I didn't even know what DRIS was until someone posted a link to this flashlight.

    I just happened to be in the market for a few flashlights and this one was right in my price range. I used this as a primary light at the Blue Heron Bridge during a night dive. The light pattern was a more consistent circular spread than my partner's lights (which tended to have a very bright center or more focused of a smaller circle).

    When I received it, I was impressed by the weight. This flashlight feels well built and is comfortable in the hand. I believe the shipping weight was 2 lbs, so adjust your weights.

    I only do recreational diving and this will serve as my primary light.

    My only complaint is that I ordered the brass clip add on and didn't receive it. I called the store and they were very friendly and said they would send me one. I still haven't received it, but that could be because of the holiday weekend.

    I picked this up in addition to the 1000w light. It is fairly disappointing, as it is just a piece of poorly milled schedule 80 PVC that doesn't hold the light firmly enough to avoid dislodging it with a small knock. The bolts that came with it were too short for my application(hard goodman handle). In all, I spent $5 and 15 minutes of work to make my own mount from 1.25" schedule 80 PVC and new machine screws. In my opinion, not worth the price- DO get the awesome light- DON'T get this overpriced mount!

    Since the shorty came out, and works so well with the lightsock, those have become our primary lights, with the big 1000's as backups. With that said, when I was using this as my primary, I was more than pleased with the build and performance.

    Dive Right In SCUBA did it again with this great light. I was practicing in the pool one day when the whole bottom turned into white daylight. I looked at a friend who had just turned on his new DRIS light and I knew I just had to have one. It is solidly made of aluminum, has a good feel with a textured surface so it is easy to hang onto, produces a whole lotta light, and the price is right. At 1000 lumens, it is as bright as my big wreck diving light but doesn't have the broad floodlight effect. It works as an excellent backup light and was ideal during my recent trip to Cozumel for looking at the underside of ledges or into crooks and crannies in the reef- I saw a lot of things that others in my group missed. My buddy used it inside the shipwreck and was amazed at how much more light he had than his normal dive light. It did very well on battery life, and is triple o-ring sealed. Anxiously waiting for spring and shipwreck season to use it some more. Thanks again DRIS.

    I ordered the light based on some recommendation from folks on scubaboard.com. I was skeptical that it would turn out to be a decent light given the price. When I got it it already had energizer batts in it, and fired right up. I was surprised to see how bright it was. I don't have a light meter but I think the 1000 lumen rating is probably not too far from reality. I replaced the batteries with some new store brand batteries from the supermarket. I took it on two dives today and deliberately left it on the whole time to see how long it would last. After about 2 hours in rainbow river it was still going strong. I have to admit I'm impressed!

    I bought this light after seeing my friend's light in action. This light is brighter on 3 C batteries than my old light is on 8 C batteries, plus it has a longer run time. The only thing that I'm not crazy about is the lanyard that comes with it, but that doesn't have anything to do with the performance of the light.

    I've only had the light about 2 weeks and I've used it once so far. It performed well, as expected. I can't wait to try it out on my favorite fossil beds in the Cooper River this summer.

    The purchasing process with DRIS was easy and shipping was quick. I will recommend to friends.

    Took this light for a night dive this week along with my old UK D8 alkiline powered light. What a difference! This light provided a much whiter light then the yellowish UK as well as a nice tight beam here in our Seattle waters. For $90, you can't beat this.

    I'm a bit of a light nerd. I own several LED lights for outdoor activities. I do some of big woods hunting where good lighting is a serious matter. As to dive lights, I go back to the era of Ikelite "super lights" for wreck and night dives. While bright, they are big and heavy. This light, however, is very compact for the light it throws. I used it recently in Cozumel to light up the sponges and coral at depth, and to explore caves and overhangs. What's really great about this light is its size. I stowed it in a BCD pocket attached by a lanyard and carabiner. All things considered, this is a great light.

    I got this torch for attending the night dives on my AOW course and WOW! They are awesome! the beam is so clear and powerful, that perfectly could beat any canister light! My instructor was quite surprise by its power that borrowed it for a dive :)

    Solid construction, long battery life, easy to turn it on, even storing them on the D-rings of you harness is amazing!

    And the price? I think is the best part of it, so I got another one as a backup and carry them all the time on my rig. A must have if you are on a budget!

    This is a great light. I just tested it against a light meter, and at 3' it puts out 14,500 lux. That pretty bright for a backup light. It has a nice tight center beam that measures about 12" at 6' from the wall. That make the beam about 9.5 degree. So that means my measurement is a little off. However it is close. The spill measures about 7' diameter, and is very uniform. Basically if you are in the need of a new light as a back up light, or a simple primary light, this one is perfect. Just for another point of reference. A light monkey 21w LED tested at 32,000 lux. So this is about half as bright, but still extremely bright, and at the price you can't go wrong.

I took it on a night dive and surprised at how bright it really was. We had eight divers in the water and several other divers made comments on how bright it was. Great light and size is very nice, handles well.

    I did quite a bit of research on lights. First I bought the Dorcy Direct light with the Oxycheq hand sock, but realized it was a better backup light than primary when comparing to other divers lights. I am cheap and don't want/need a canister light so I settled on this after reading lots of posts. This light is fantastic. It has 3 o-rings for great sealing and takes 3 C batteries. Seems to burn bright forever and makes more expensive dive lights look weak. Even if you don't use it for diving, it never hurts to have another torch laying around. I clip it to a D-ring with an extendable cord lanyard. Nice, metallic, black and solid. Great buy.

    I purchased 2 of these for back up lights for the GF and I. These lights hang perfectly from the shoulder straps on our BP/W. They have a very secure off position so they do not accidently get turned on and kill the batteries. They are easy to handle and operate even while wearing thick dry gloves. We ready many good reviews online about these lights prior to purchase.

    While these are listed as backup lights they are easily bright enough to be used as primary lights in many settings. I have handed mine off to other divers that were attempting to use low quality lights in poor conditions.

    I will say I was surprised at the weight of these lights. You can probably take 1lb of weight off when carrying this light. If they were not as heavy I would actually consider carrying one at work. I will stick to my Surefire lights for that.

    The 1000 Lumen Dive Light is amazingly bright, fits the hand perfectly, easily attached to a snap link or wrist lanyard, has excellent battery life, and a durable body. Mine was tested in cenote dives near Playa Del Carmen. 6 dives of 50 minutes to an hour each, and NO noticeable drop in brightness. The water may be crystal clear, but when it's dark, it's BLACK in there, and this lit things up well. My light was almost as bright as the guide's $500 canister light. If there's anything negative about the light, it's that the hot spot in the middle of the beam can be too bright when close to things - but it should be obvious a 1000 lumen light is not the light for looking at tiny things close up. Cover the center of the lens with a finger or two when it's too much, but be glad it's so bright when you're at the back of the line in the cavern or signalling someone far away on a night dive.
    Experience with Dive Right In Scuba was great, sale went smoothly and light shipped very fast.

    The DRIS 1000 dive light is a very powerful light for it's size. It's comparable in size to Hollis LED 6 for example, but it's light output is considerably better.

    I have used the light as my primary on two night dives so far and am very satisfied with it's performance. I also have it strapped to my BC for daylight dives and use it for looking into cracks and crevices.

    The only drawback I can see is that the metal parts on the included lanyard seem to corrode pretty easily. I will probably have to switch to a new strap for my next night dive.

    Still, this light is definitely worth the money (and more)!

    I bought this light for my recent trip to the Phillipines and all I can say is wow. I would have preferred a lithium ion powered LED light, but couldn't find one with good reviews so this light was the ticket. I used rechargeable c cells with this light and the results were fantastic. Burn time was about 1.5 hours at full output. Other divers were green with envy as my light lit up the reef, bringing out all the glorious colors. I can honestly say that diving with this light changes the diving experience when diving below 40 feet, or under lower vis conditions or cloudy days. It turns a mono-cromatic world into one exploding with vibrant colors. In low vis conditions, other divers knew exactly where I was as they could see the beam of my light even when they couldn't see me. None of the other dive lights were remotely as bright as my beam would completely obscure their beams, often from 3 times further away.

    I could easily have sold my light to numerous divers there. this was $90 very well spent!

    How can I describe this light? How about "WOW", and "Awesome". Granted I have only used this light once in the water, which was last night in a interior Alaska lake, but I had a real good feeling about this light from the time I opened my box from DRIS. This light is very bright, maybe to much if you have lots of debri in the water, but water clarity is good on my home dives at the moment. I used it above water on a couple occasions just to show it off to work buddies, who want one just for home use. This is another quality product from DRIS and I will plan on buying another. I used this light to replace my 400 lumen 8C princeton tec LED that literally fell apart on me. My dive buddies were using Underwater Kenetics 4C lights, I believe Xenon but not sure, and their lights didnt even think of comparing when it came to brightness above and below water, as I could completly shadow their light.

    My roommate bought one of these and we just took it out for a spin comparing it to a Scubapro Nova 230, Hollis LED 5, Halcyon Scout, and Light Monkey Levellan/Rat. On the surface the DRIS light blows the others away, however we noticed that it definitely has a bit more spill and were curious how it would hold up underwater, especially with all the particulate in the Puget Sound lately. Ultimately in the water it still outperformed everything except for the Light Monkey which just barely edged it out with the tighter beam. The DRIS light still seemed to provide more illumination but was a bit handicapped by the backscatter and the wider beam which made it harder to signal with from distance. I wanted to give it 4 stars but really, it is a 5 star light, especially at the price. My nitpicks with it are for my specific use as a backup where signaling ability is paramount. I will still pick up one (or maybe 2) to keep as backups for my backups or for when I take friends out night diving that don't have their own lights.

    Review of the 1000 lm dive light. I had 2 dives this weekend in a lake. Took the light to 95 ft where viz was approx 10 - 15 ft but very dark under the silt. Light performed well - out shined other lights on the dive in a good way. Even in the filthier shallow water (wreck dive at 45 ft) the light performed well. Size does not bother me at all. Wouldnt mind a bit tighter beam, but it is ok as is. I did not receive a lanyard but I use a spring clip and short cord and it stays on my vest nicely. I do not think it is so big that a bungee sock wouldnt hold it on my hand/wrist. For the price, it is outstanding

    This product is very well built. The light was a little bit larger than I thought it would be, but should have been expected due to using C batteries.

    It produces an amazing amount of light. The beam is fairly wide with a brighter circle in the middle. Prior to purchasing this light my primary was a 500 lumen light purchased elsewhere. This light is quite a bit brighter and has relegated my 500 to being a backup.

    This was my first purchase with DRIS and I have no regrets. Excellent prices, free shipping over $75, great customer service and loyalty points. Need I say more?

    This light is solidly built. It project a nice tight beam of intensely bright white light. The halo effect was strong enough through air to expect good fill of light along the beam underwater. Powerful enough lighting for many to use as a primary light but small enough to be classed as a backup. I'd like to see this light packaged with lithum rechargeables and a charger.

    I had the ability to finally dive with this light this past weekend and it is AWESOME. I took it out for a midnight dive in a relatively mucky lake in Wisconsin to get an idea of its performance and I was blown away. I brought along my Dorcy 220 for comparison and the DRIS light smoked it. I was sorta afraid that the mucky particulate of the lake would cause awful backscatter, but it was far less of an issue than I had anticipated. This light was just way too good of a deal to pass up on. My friends were plenty jealous!

    I have not had a chance to dive this yet, but will talk to it in comparison to the DRIS 500.

    This twist-on light is of comparable size to the DRIS 500. The light twists on easier than does the 500, and it has a larger knurled segment on which to get a good grip. The head is the same size as the 500, and only the tapered segment from the barrel to the head has been extended. The 1000 is about 1/2 inch longer than the 500.

    DRIS has, as usual, been on top of keeping us informed and producing good products. I now have my two cave backup lights. _grin_

    Given that the 500 is, in my opinion, too bright for night dives, I reason that the 1000 will wash out everything badly. The 500 did not work for photography, as it caused a hot-spot white-out in pictures, and I assume the 1000 will be worse. I would bring either dive light on a night dive as an emergency signaling device, because it is so bright, but would have a softer, less luminous light for my critter-watcher.

    Here is a size comparison of the DRIS 500 and the DRIS 1000:

    And here is a shot of the two lights on the ceiling of a very well-lit room:

Dive Right In Scuba knows that our customers value many things, including friendly, professionally trained staff, terrific service and great savings on scuba equipment.  Our Scuba Dive Shop in Illinois thrives on being the best in the Scuba Industry and offering our Scuba and Snorkeling customers the best pricing not only in Illinois, but in the world.  We try hard to keep our prices as low as possible while also offering the best service.  If you see a competitor with a lower price, take advantage of our Low Price Guarantee!  Under the BUY NOW button on every product, you will see a Pricematch form.  Just fill it out, and save some cash!  But we don't stop there. If, within 60 days of your purchase from Dive Right In Scuba, you find the same item advertised by DRIS or another authorized SCUBA dealer for less, show us the ad and we'll give you 100% of the difference as a credit towards your next purchase of scuba diving equipment!  Whether you live in Joliet, Naperville, Chicago, Indiana, or Australia, we will give you the same great service as if you were standing in our store!  

100% Price Protection does not apply to special order products (ie: Products that do not appear on our website)


How does it work?
Well, once we are able to verify the competitors lower price, we will approve the pricematch.  This will send you an email, and the price will automatically change for you to purchase at the new low price. For instance, if we are selling a product for $200 and you find it elsewhere for $180, your price with Dive Right In Scuba will be $180. To take advantage of this promotion and give us a call at 815-267-8400 or use our Price Match form on every product page.

* Be sure that your Pricematch is in your favor as sometimes our Loyalty Points is the better deal vs. a lower upfront price from a competitor.  Pricematches can not be combined with any other sales or promos.  Dive Right In Scuba has the right to decline any pricematch or make a counteroffer.  We typically do NOT pricematch bidding sites like eBay, but you can submit them and maybe we can make it happen!  Pricematching on discontinued items is allowed.

Dive Right In Scuba Price Match Policy is in good spirit and a way for us to communicate with our customers and always make sure they are getting the best deal.  There is never any intention to fool or trick anyone with our policies.  If you feel this policy is inadequate in your situation, please call us at 815-267-8400.

With the whole world now being within a keyboards reach, Dive Right In Scuba will still offer the best Pricing and Service in the Midwest, but we are taking  that and making it available globally!!  If you're able to find another Authorized dealer with a  lower price, we will match and beat it with our above Low Price Guarantee!  So your looking at making a purchase from an Unauthorized, gray market retailer?  Don’t do it!  DRIS will also match those dealers price and you will save money AND get a full manufacturers warranty!  Please allow 24 hours to confirm that the retailer has it in stock.  Whether it’s a local Shop in Aurora, Oswego, Yorkville, Tennessee, or Texas, we will go the extra distance to ensure you get the best pricing with the best service and warranties!

 You can buy with confidence with Dive Right In Scuba!
