I usually shop hard and long to get a good deal on my dive equipment. Last summer I thought I should support my local dive shop a bit more. So instead of buying a Venture bladder for my TransPac from Leisure Pro for $179. I bought it for nearly $300 from my local dive shop. Hmmmm, a lot of money for a rubberized bag and a hose. I haven't dove it yet. I just stare at it and wonder. What was so expensive to make this rubber bag and hose. I think I will frame and hang it in my living room;-) Amazing what you can get away with. By just classifing something as life support equipment. I keep a jar of vaseline handy. When shopping for dive gear.

If only the Girl Scouts would dream up some secret ingredient for their cookies. They could stamp "life support food" and charge $100 a box;-) At least I would feel like I got a better deal.
