Vintage scuba is a reference to the art of scuba diving using vintage-style gear, which is generally defined at this time as equipment dating from 1975 and earlier, and to that equipment.

Twin hose regulators[edit]

The most striking and well recognized example of vintage scuba gear is the twin-hose or double hose regulator, a popular style of regulator since Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Emile Gagnan pioneered the first such design, the C45 Scaphandre Autonome, which was marketed in the USA (along with a tank and harness) as the Aqua-Lung.
