Apeks Regulator Sets AT20 US4 with AT20 OCTOPUS
The Apeks AT20 reg is now supplied with the US4 1st stage. The AT20/US4 regulator has been designed for warm water diving. Just because it is warm water dive equipment does not mean it is of low quality. The Apeks AT20/US4 is a very good breathing regulator featuring our venturi control and it is also balanced.

This regulator has been finished with as much care and attention to detail as any of Apeks regulators, but is most suitable for warm water resort diving. A good quality, warm water regulator at a very good price.
