Jan Christian Warloe Diving Helmet

In 2011 the ‘Northern Divers Meeting’ in Stockholm, Sweden a new diving helmet was introduced. This remarkable orange helmet is made out of the same rubber as rubber ships fenders making it extremely resistant against the damage the old copper helmets usually suffered from. The helmet is a project from the norwegian Diving Company owner Jan Christian Warloe of Bergen, Norway.                                                                                                                                                                         Photographs: thanks to Sven Erik Joergensen of the HDS Denmark
