Telling yourself is not a simple thing, you risk trying to “convince” …. WE are the TOP, we are this, we are that.. blah blah blah. We let you judge. But we can say that we are the kind of people who do exactly what they say.
Simple concept but ultimately very far from reality.
I’m Alberto Costa founder in 2009 of 232bar. Since diving passion arrived into my life, at the beginning of the 90s, diving has always occupied an important place and the “232bar” idea was born in a particularly difficult moment from the professional point of view, one of those moments when you realize that you either DO something or you suffer the events without being able to actively influence it.
I come from a “working-class” family, my father a genius of metal carpentry, my mother has always worked in the automotive textile branch. I was lucky enough to study. Fresh from studies, I found employment in a multinational company where I was able to refine important experiences, systems analyst, marketing manager, manager of a unit of consultants and finally as a sales specialist. 232bar is the synergistic result of all these personal and family skills and experiences.

We are specialized in scuba Buoyancy systems development and production. We are addicted to a concept that “Less is Better” according to the Hogarthian philosofy. For divers who prefer the backmount configuration PLANAR series are our jewels. For Side-mount configuration lovers we developedthe ALIEN sidemount system which is now recognized as one of the best system in the world. Italian Water Force is the brand for BCD designed for divers who still operate in recreational range but who are ready to go further.
After practically covering all the range of equipment related to Buoyancy control we extended our interest to dry suits, DRYSUIT ITALIA is our own brand. We realize trilaminate dry suits with telescopic torso and front diagonal ZIP.
