Mountaineering Style Harness
A mountaineering backpack style harness keeps the rig stable and
guarantees that the Hydro Lite is as comfortable out of the water as it
is in it. On land the harness is designed to distribute the load to the
hips and alleviate added stress to the back and shoulders. Standard
2-inch waist and shoulder webbing allows the diver to add or remove any
D-rings or accessories to customize the BCD. Adjustable quick release
straps and integrated chest strap make getting in and out of the harness
For added stability the harness features a 1.5”
crotch strap. Four 2” D-rings are located on the chest and waist belt.
An integrated lumbar pad, hip pads, and shoulder pads are included for
additional comfort. Available in five harness sizes S-XXL with quick
adjustability for in-between sizes.
Streamlined Aircell An
integrated 30 lb lift aircell provides the ideal amount of lift for a
diver, tank, and weights, while maintaining a streamlined shape.
Positioned for perfect trim, the 360-degree oval shape hugs the cylinder
preventing the aircell from “tacoing” around the tank and trapping air.
The Hydro Lite uses a “rapid exhaust” power inflator assembly on the
left shoulder and an over-pressure valve with pull dump on the lower
left of the wing.
Extremely rugged, the Hydro Lite aircell is
designed for the long-term using a 600 denier polyester material
outerbag and a 210 denier nylon laminated inner bladder.
Dual Tank Straps For added
stability the Hydro Lite features dual tank straps, as well as a tank
height adjustment strap. The top tank strap is Dive Rite’s 2” stainless
steel non-marring roller buckle cam strap. The bottom strap is a quick
adjust hook-and-loop retainer designed to provide additional tank
stability while reducing overall weight.The Hydro Lite features an integrated low profile
12 lb weight system with quick release pulls. By eliminating the use of
additional holsters or large pull handles, the integrated weight system
adds minimal bulk to the BCD. Each pocket can be quickly loaded with up
to 6 pounds of either block or soft weight. The combination hook-and-loop and
buckle retainer holds the weight securely while allowing the diver to
quickly ditch their weight in case of emergency.
