About Hollis Rapid Emergency Deployment System (R.E.D.S.)

R.E.D.S. was developed for RAPID Response SCUBA Diving, when time is critical and delayed 'suiting up' is not practical. Design features guarantee user Front Flotation and it is shaped to allow the Rescuer to provide Medical-Attention to a Victim while Towing Fully-Inflated On-the-Surface. The R.E.D.S. was engineered with Routing-for-All Air-Hoses Placed-Internally to Reduce Drag and any chance of Entanglements. In addition to Public Safety Purposes, this BCD also serves as a great System for Kayaking or Boating allowing Quick-and-Easy Deployment.

The Rapid Emergency Deployment System uses MOLLE a (pronounced Molly) Strap System (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment). The MOLLE System is a Series of Nylon Webbing Loops that allows Multiple Accessory Attachments to Fully-Equip the User with All-Required-Equipment necessary to complete the Task-at-Hand. The R.E.D.S. is designed for One-Size-Fits-All. In Addition to the MOLLE System the Unit has Multiple Stainless Steel Hard-Coated D-Rings, a Rugged-1000-Denier CODURA Outer Cover and a Serviceable 15ml Polyurethane Internal Bladder.

The R.E.D.S. has a Contoured Lightweight Backpack with Back Pad and Zippered Storage Pouch. The Quick-Adjust Waist Strap and Integrated Crotch Strap provide a Comfortable Fit. System is equipped with Hollis Gears Power Inflator System that is made from Durable Impact Resistant Plastic with a Corrugated Rubber Hose. The Internal Components and Inlet Quick-Disconnect Nipple are made from Chrome Plated Brass. There is also a Right Shoulder Pull Dump/Overpressure Relief Valve. The R.E.D.S. has a Rear Mount for a Single Cylinder.

      Comments about Hollis Gear Hollis Rapid Emergency Deployment System (R.E.D.S.):

      This Hollis R.E.D.S BC is VERY versatile, and well made. The front lower pouch is made to hold either two 6 cu ft pony bottles, or one 13 cu ft bottle. The front of the BC also has a removable pouch attached to the military molle straps. The molle straps allow you to configure your accessories in tons of different ways. The back of it is set up for single tank use. This BC is the refined modern interpretation of the horsecollar BC. It is well made for sure.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Can this item be fitted with a back inflace wing for a completely redundant system?
      SHAWN D  The R.E.D.S will work with a back plate/wing setup, just keep in mind that to put this BC on you have to pull it over your head, then fasten the straps. Rather than directly attaching the wing to the R.E.D.S, it would work better if you first put on your back plate wing, the put the R.E.D.S. on over the webbing/shoulder straps, then tuck the back of it between the plate and your back, and fasten it. The R.E.D.S. has one crotch strap and two side straps that hold it on. It is a horse-collar type BC. The back of it is flat material. The back is 4 inches wide at the top, and widens to approximately 12 inches at the bottom. There is a single metal 2 inch D-ring sewn into the bottom of the back. The R.E.D.S. does have a front pouch area (the area in the picture where you see the lower pouch with the velcro patch square and where Hollis is written on it) that holds a pony bottle horizontally.
      danny r  Is this product meant to be a rapid diver type system with a small diameter tank up front? What is the biggest size tank that it can hold up front?
      Joe S  You can hold up to a 40 cuft tank with this. Of the steel kind.
      Shopper  What kind of tank are you suppose to use with this bc?
      Frank L  You can use a standard 7.25 inch diameter cylinder.
