Diving gear are a type of equipment used for decreasing the rate of oxygen bar reduction, providing cold protection in water, and increasing movement speed in the water (from 0.8 up to normal speed). They also provide some protection from mobs and player attacks. Diving gear were added in the Vamos a la Playa update. There are two tiers of diving gear, which are the diving mask and the diving suit. The diving suit is better than the diving mask for swimming, and provides better protection.
