cordura

Cordura®

Exterior abrasion points of select BCs are covered in our "Fadeless" Cordura® - tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that "new look" longer.

Most external panels benefit from the toughness of Cordura®, a high-performance, super-durable fabric that is perfect for the demands divers place on their equipment. It's resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs--all the qualities you expect from a high performance fabric.

QLR (Quick Lock & Release) Weight Integration System

The Patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System is standard on many of the BCs.

Your weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, our patented "positive-lock" system helps to ensure that they'll stay put.

Bioflex

Patented BioFlex® Super-Stretch Air Cell

Your equipment should enhance, not hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving. Nowhere is this more important than with BC's, where comfort and freedom of movement must be balanced against function and durability.

Responding to this challenge led our design engineers to create BioFlex - a unique "living fabric" that stretches, flexes and conforms to the body. BioFlex is an extraordinary fabric, which stretches, fully inflated up to 30% over conventional nylon or polyurethane BC materials.

 

The idea being that if a material could stretch while remaining airtight, you could make smaller air cells, creating less bulk and drag underwater while achieving high volumes of lift when required. BioFlex eliminates chest squeeze, conforms to the diver's body and provides a slim, body hugging profile.
