Comments about Dive Rite Trans-Plate Harness:
I dive a Halcyon BC and really love it for doing all sorts of diving. I travel everywhere with this system. I wanted to be able to be able to get it on and off easier. I have found dive Rite's harness system converted easily to my Halycon back plate. I noticed on the first dive no difference in diving with this harness, however on the boat and shore it was a dream for getting the BC on and off.
