Dive Rite Transpac XT
The Transpac XT balances weight across the hips and back, evenly distributing the weight of single or double tanks. The integrated wrap-around hip pads, made of dual density foam, snugly hug the lower back giving critical support and cushioning. Double-foam shoulder pads fit perfectly beneath the two-inch shoulder webbing to give chafe-free comfort. The molded foam lumbar pad is contoured in all the right places with mesh airflow channels for instant draining topside. Chest-support strap provides ideal load distribution and when used with the removable 1.5-inch crotch strap, provides stability and comfort in the water. Transition plates at the shoulders allow for quick user addition/removal of hardware and finite adjustments. Sizes XS-Med will include one 2” marine-grade stainless steel D-ring on each shoulder, sizes LG-XXL will include two 2” marine-grade stainless steel D-rings on each shoulder. All sizes come standard with one 2” marine-grade stainless steel D-ring on each side of the waist webbing. Dual 2” cam straps with marine-grade stainless steel buckles are positioned to give plenty of head room for easy maneuvering in the water.
The Transpac XT is neutrally buoyant, weighs less than 5lbs (2.29kg), and packs flat for travel. Optional weight pockets can be mounted easily onto the waist belt. The Transpac XT is designed for use with any XT or EXP wing in the Dive Rite line. Made in the U.S.A
Dive Rite Rec Wing
A hybrid wing, the Rec Series can be worn on single or double tanks making it one of Dive Rite’s most popular wings. When diving single tanks, Dive Rite’s Gusset Control System streamlines the wing, keeping it close to the body. This avoids the “taco” effect of the wing wrapping around the tank, away from the diver, which diminishes buoyancy control. Available in single or dual bladder, the Rec Series has 45lbs/20.4 kg of lift and can accommodate two 85ft3/12 L back mounted cylinders.
Divers may choose from Dive Rite’s value-driven and durable 1680 ballistic nylon EXP material or their SuperFabric® brand technology XT material that they’ve married with a 1000 denier Cordura® inner shell to create an armor-clad outer bag that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts. Both the Rec EXP (Model BC 4300) and Rec XT (Model 5300) are further enhanced with a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon laminated bladder.
As a part of Dive Rite’s modular BCD system, it can be matched with either a TransPac® XT, Transplate or any metal backplate and webbing harness.
