Designed for Warm Water Diving with Aluminum 80s, the Nomad LT is Dive Rite's Lightest and most Streamlined Side-Mount Rig in the Nomad Line. Available in either an Overhead Environment Cave Tec Model or an Open Water Model, the Nomad LTs Exceptional-Design creates the First Side-Mount Rig of its kind that is Simple-to-Set-Up and Configure with an All-in-One Webbing Harness and Wing Combination. Pivot Points at the Chest provide Comfort for Women and Large-Chest Divers and Stainless Steel Slides at the Waist provide a Customizable Fit. See Dive Rite's Nomad LT Fitting Video for Tips below.
Unique to the Nomad LT is the Tight Wing Profile that provides Instant Trim with an Ingenious 3" (7.6cm) Expansion Panel located at the Base of the Wing. This puts Air where it is needed for Optimal Trim and Efficiency. A Low Profile Butt-Plate is located just at the Base of the Wing for divers with Steel 85s, providing Easy-Access to Bottles. Super-Fabric Brand Technology on the Outer Wing provides Optimum Resistance to Punctures and Abrasions, while Remaining-Very-Flexible. On LT Cave Tec Model, Pull Dumps are Located on the Bottom with the Inflator on the Inside Right and Over-Pressure Relief Valve (OPV) located on the Inside Left. On Blue Water, Open Water Model the Pull Dumps are Located on the Outside Left and Inside Right of the Wing and the Inflation Hose is Located Behind the Shoulder for Easier Dumping in Vertical Positions. On both models, these can be reversed by the diver, if desired. Integrated Daisy Chain Technology gives Divers the Option for Nomad Loop Bungees or a Standard Bungee according to diver preference. Two, separate Bungees, rather than one Continuous Bungee, provide Greater-Control in the Case of a Failure.
The Nomad LT Cave Tec weighing only 5.4 lbs (2.45 k g), and the Nomad LT Blue Water Open Water weighing 5.5 lbs (2.5 kg) are Dive Rite's favorites for Travel to Warm Water Destinations. Extremely Streamlined, the Nomad LT has 22 lbs (10 kg) of Lift to carry Twin Aluminum 80 Cylinders with a Wetsuit or Faber Steel 85s when wearing a Dry Suit. (Note: Faber's Steel 85's are Lighter-than-other-Brands of Similar Size Tanks. Only wear Faber steel 85s with the Nomad LT). Due to a lift capacity of 22 lbs (10 kg), the Nomad LT is designed to support a maximum of 10 lbs (4.54 kg) of additional weight worn for trim or buoyancy purposes.
Both models have a 1000-Denier Cordura Outer Bag with an Inner Bladder Constructed from Radio Frequency (RF) Welded Urethane Laminated 210-Denier Nylon and Stainless Steel Hardware. The Nomad LT Side-Mounts have Urethane Flanges that are Welded in place, which make it Easy to Switch-Out Corrugated Hoses and Over-Pressure Relief Valves without requiring Tools.

Comments about Dive Rite Nomad LT Side-Mount Rig:
Very light weight and requires much less weight to dive it. A great rig. You can even dive it in cold water if you use steel 85's.
