Rating:I purchased two of these tanks from divers direct and have been very happy with their quality. Although I have used them on occasion, my wife uses them regularly. They're shorter than my steel 100s and considerably shorter then aluminum 80s. They fit her very well. On top of that, the use of steel tanks reduces the amount of weight that a diver needs to use. And steel tanks last a very long time. I highly recommend these steel 80s.
