than half of all diving fatalities occur at the surface. Sadly,
most divers believe that jacket-style BCs provide proper surface
floatation when, in fact, a divers surface position principally
relates to their weight distribution. A nearly empty aluminum
cylinder will usually float an unconscious diver face-down regardless
of the BC worn. However, the Halcyon Trim Weighting Kit promotes
heads-up surface airway protection by counteracting the positive
tendency of buoyant cylinders.

from a diver's waist toward their center, such as with a stainless

diver trim and reduces drag
