SCUBAPROfirst appeared in the scuba diving world in the early 1960's. It was guided by two men, Gustav Dalla Valle and Dick Bonin. They brought to the market many innovations for diving that are still being used today. The 1964 catalog featured everything the diver could want, including regulators, recompression chambers, and submarines. In 1965 the first version of the Jet fin first appeared. After 40 years the fin is still popular with technical and military divers worldwide and is one of the most copied scuba products ever sold. In 1966 the catalog also added the Automatic Decompression meter, a forerunner to the modern dive computer. Back mount BC's, weight integrated systems, the Classic style STAB jacket, and other innovations continued to be introduced throughout the years.

Zeagle Systems inc.Zeagle Systems is a family owned business dedicated to making innovative equipment for Recreational, commercial, public safety, and military divers.
Zeagle's Way!Many prominent manufacturers simply label products made by offshore OEM factories, and have no production facilities of their own. For several years market demands have necessitated that even Zeagle "off-shore" and "home-source" some products. Zeagle do, however, still manufacture and design buoyancy systems, regulators, and many other products in their own factory in Zephyrhills, Florida. This gives Zeagle an intimate understanding of construction and quality and makes it far easier to innovate new designs.
Zeagles Inovations!Zeagle led the industry towards the concept of integrated weight buoyancy systems. When Zeagle began building weight-integrated buoyancy 25 years ago the idea was considered radical and was dismissed by all major equipment manufacturers. The success of Zeagle Systems with divers forced the industry to take another look at the benefits of integrated weights and today integrated weight systems represent the majority of buoyancy systems sold. Zeagle's patented Ripcord release system is still the most reliable and easiest to use release on the market and we have continued to evolve our buoyancy designs to offer custom sizing and options for unmatched flexibility.
Zeage's FutureIn 2012 Zeagle Systems was acquired by Huish Outdoors and became part of the growing family of product lines such as Atomic Aquatics, Bare Sports, and Stahlsac. Zeagle's inclusion in this new organization creates a powerhouse lineup that outfits a diver in the very best gear available today from head to toe.
Dubarry Of IrelandDubarry: Shoe & Boot Makers Est. 1937
Over 70 years ago a co-operative was formed to provide work in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Irelands glorious West Coast. Taking its name from a famous French courtesan, Madame du Barry, the companys formative years were defined
through the making of fine quality shoes during which time they were fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard-working craftsmen and women.
Dubarry; The Company
Dubarrys reputation as one of Irelands most respected and successful companies was born out of the workforces deep-rooted pride and ambition to produce footwear of the very highest quality.
Over the years Dubarry has expanded its international sourcing network, working closely with carefully selected contract partners who share our high standards and desire to work with the best of components, raw materials and unique designs.Dubarry is now recognised around the world, and wherever we are, we like to feel that we take a little bit of Ireland with us, because when somethings good, its worth sharing.
Dubarry The Name?Madame du Barry Back in 1937, and looking to diferentiate themselves from other Irish brands, the owners of the newly formed company decided they needed a continental European flavour for their enterprise, and after some research decided upon the name Dubarry, after Madame du Barry.
Jeanne Bécu was born in Lorraine, France, the illegitimate daughter of Anne Bécu, a woman of enticing beauty, whose occupation was as a seamstress. Jeanne was a remarkably attractive woman who used her looks to briefly take several aristocrats as lovers. In 1768 Jeanne married Comte Guillaume du Barry, thus becoming Madame du Barry. In the same year she attracted the attention of Louis XV while she was on an errand at Versailles.
Madame du Barry went on to become one of Frances most well-known courtesans as well as the mistress of Louis XV. Due to her association with the King of France, Madame du Barry enjoyed high status and privilege within the French court for many years.
