Best Overall
Apeks MTX-R

See all pictures

The second Apeks on our list and this one is chock full of the kind of features that you didn’t even know you needed. It offers superb breathability under all conditions and like the Poseidon above, has been precision engineered for cold-water diving. In fact, it’s based on the MTX military design and meets all the requirements of the Navy Experimental Dive Unit (NEDU).

The temperature range is down to 0.5 degrees Celcius (32.7 degrees Fahrenheit). It’s so sturdy that you’d have a hard time breaking this tough and rugged regulator even if you tried.
