Ok just watched the NAVY SEALS with one of those sheen guys in it. It was not that great but the reason I was bringing it up was in one scene the SEALS are deployed underwater from a submarine and they are obviously using SNARK 2 hose regs!!!?? Is this accurate? later in the movie they are using rebreathers so the movie folks went out of their way to use snarks in the earlier scene. It is not that important but I thought some vinatge guy/former seal may have some info? They alos appeared to be using doubles that are connected with one pice USD manifolds.
I also noted a Discovery Channel special on the Seals, and it had Nemrod Snark III regs in it too. I think that is real, as they wanted to use the two hose regulators, but USD had discontinued manufacturing them. I understand that now they are again using USD, the Mentor though.

I saw the Discovery Channel three part series on BUD/S training and the double hose regs looked like the new Mentor from Aqua Lung, but they never showed a close enough shot to be sure. Aqua Lung still sells the solid double tank manifold with the J valve, although they are are very expensive - over $500 I beleive.
