The Cressi Moby 5 has been our top choice for dive bags for a few years and it doesn't look it's going to change anytime soon. It will fit your entire scuba gear and then some. Even a drysuit. We like the retractable handlebar to comfortably pull the trolley and it even comes with shoulder straps! 😱
It looks gorgeous and valuable and feels a bit like nice leather seats in a car. All this greatness unfortunately comes at a high price. It's also really heavy. But it's so pretty!

First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

The first thing you will notice about this dive bag is: This thing is huge!

The Moby 5 was clearly designed to be the only dive bag you need wherever you travel.

Two side pockets for your fins and additional ones on the front for small stuff that you might need.

This dive bag even features backpack straps to carry it on your back, however, please note that it’s not only super large but quite heavy.

I think if you can find this one at a good price (check it out below), this might be the last dive bag/suitcase you will need.

  1. Hi thank for this, will the Nova Gorilla fins, a BCD and a wet suit fit in this bag? am currently using the Aqua Lung one

    1. Hey Janak,
      thanks for your comment! 😊
      To answer your question: Yes, this should absolutely fit. I use the Moby 5 with the Seawing Nova Pros which have the same size as the Gorillas and they work without a problem.
      We do a lot cold water diving and I usually put my my fins, 7mm wetsuit, bcd, boots, mask, torch, SMB, etc in the bag together and there is still space for a lunchbox, fresh clothes etc.

      Let me know how you decide and if you have any other questions, leave a reply!
