About Dive Rite Travel-Pac BCD

The Travel-Pac is a recreational BCD for warm water diving where minimal weight is required. At 25lbs/ (11.3kg) of lift, the Travel-Pac will support one 80ft3 (12 liter) aluminum tank with additional weight not to exceed 10lbs (4.5kg). The Travel-Pac is a highly streamlined back inflate BCD that has the advantages of putting buoyancy where it is most needed for horizontal trim throughout the torso supporting the weight of the tank. No squeezes or uncomfortable restrictions that can happen with a jacket style BC. The 360° degree, donut wing provides even inflation and won't tip divers while floating at the surface.

Extremely rugged, the Travel-Pac is designed for long-term use based on a hybrid design of Dive Rite's Travel-Pac harness and Travel EXP wing. Dive Rite has used the same materials and craftsmanship that goes into their technical BCDs, yet simplified the Travel-Pac to have less hardware, making it a lighter weight BCD that is ideal for travel, plus its design allows it to pack flat in a suitcase. Its ruggedness is enhanced with a 1680-denier ballistic nylon outer bag and a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon urethane laminated bladder, backed by Dive Rite's limited lifetime warranty.

The Travel-Pac comes standard with a 1.5" (3.8cm) crotch strap, used by advanced divers to keep the rig stable and moving with the body. Weight pockets are optional, depending on diver preference. Hardware is streamlined with one epaulet on the left shoulder, attachment of accessory items is accommodated with 2 bent chest D-rings and 2 waist D-rings. The Travel-Pac side plates are narrower and give more room on the waist belt for accessories. The Travel-Pac harness assembly is comprised of adjustable torso shoulder straps, sternum strap, waist belt with stainless steel latch style buckle and the crotch strap. All straps are equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. Cylinder mounting is accomplished with one standard 36" (91.4 cm) cam strap w/stainless steel buckle. Buoyancy control is provided by an elbowed inflator and a lower left front over pressure relief/dump valve. The Travel-Pac measures (H x W) 22" x 14" (55.9cm x 35.6cm), weighs 5lbs 13oz (2.62 kg), comes with an 3/8" threaded low pressure hose, owner's manual and is made in the U.S.A.

    Comments about Dive Rite TravelPac BCD:

    This is a great BC, it's assembled very sturdy. It is the combination of a backplate and wing but you are not able to separate them. The harness works very similar to the Dive Rite harness and is very comfortable. It is very streamlined. The wing is only 27lbs but one has to remember that the BC is not as buoyant as a jacket BC so you will require less weights and thus less lift. I am 6'1 220 and wear an XL, It has plenty of lift to hold my head above water and because I am properly weighed I don't use all of the lift. This BC can be folded but not recommended but it fits inside a large Backpack, so you could have this BC and other SCUBA equipment in a backpack and attach the fins to the side. Great for travel. Don't be turned off by the 27lbs wing, unless you are doing cold water diving in salt water and require lots of weight. But for the rec diver who wears 3mm suits or even 5mm suits and use 16lbs or less worth of lead this BC will do great, it's like wearing a hiking backpack.

    Questions about this item:

    Alan R  I have an original Manta BC. How will this Dive rite compare and can it be folded into a compact item for travel?
    MARK C  Moving from a jacket style BC to a rear-inflate BC does take some getting used to. I would not assume that you will be 100% comfortable with the way the Dive-Rite works the very first dive. Give yourself a bit of a learning curve. One thing that you will notice is that with so little lift and the lift being on your back, you will ride very low in the water on the surface. If you are not comfortable with that, then I'd opt for a jacket style BC over a rear-inflate. This BC does not pack down as much as you would think it would. Nor is it as light as you might think. But it's still a minimalist BC for sure and I love it for warm water diving. But if you need more than 10 or 12 pounds on your belt, then the lift capacity on this BC might not be enough for you. One trick I've learned with this BC is to use the waist belt to cinch everything into a nice bundle for storage in my dive bag. What I like most about this BC is the freedom it provides. It's like not wearing a BC at all once you are trimmed up under water. The straps are designed in such a way to really snug up the unit to your body, making the tank and you feel as one unit. Very stable. No tank "slosh" as I had with my jacket BC. Anyway, I'd highly recommend the BC for someone that does not use a lot of weight and is comfortable riding low in the water on the surface.
