“The ‘Legend 3’ Regulator is a full redesign of our already famous Legend collection - it is the absolute pinnacle of underwater breathing technology and the latest version of our best-selling and highest performing regulator,” said Laurent Boury, Vice President of International Diving for the Aqua Lung Group.

“Somehow our engineering & development team at Aqua Lung has been able to outdo themselves yet again,” continued Mr. Boury. “This third iteration of the Legend is by far our best – it is more capable, easier breathing and more versatile than anything we have ever built.”

Aqua Lung Ocean Ambassador Philippe Cousteau echoes Mr. Boury’s assessment, adding, “The Legend has always been my regulator of choice, no matter if I am diving under ice at one of the poles or on a tropical reef; it is the one regulator capable of outperforming anything else in either condition.”

Nicolas Peyron, Aqua Lung’s R&D manager, states, “In lab testing, effort of breathing and resistance to freezing on the LEG3ND Elite is at levels never achieved before on any regulator, from any company. This is the new gold standard for underwater breathing apparatus.”

The LEG3ND will be available in 3 models: The LEG3ND, LEG3ND MBS and LEG3ND ELITE in both DIN and Yoke configurations. Each has premium components, finishes and features that make a complete range of choices for any type of diver, in all conditions, all depths and all dives.
