The Oceanic Probe HLC BCD is a heavy duty tech oriented Jacket Style BCD. Exterior abrasion points of the Probe HLC are covered in Oceanic's new "Fadeless" 1600-denier ballistic nylon - Tough Stuff that will hold up to years of Extreme Diving and keep that "New Look" longer. Your equipment should enhance- not-hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving. Nowhere is this more important than with BCD's, where comfort and freedom of movement must be balanced against function and- durability. Responding to this challenge led Oceanic design engineers to create BioFlex - a unique "living fabric" that stretches flexes and conforms to the body. BioFlex is an extraordinary fabric, which stretches, fully inflated up to 30% over conventional nylon or polyurethane BC materials. The idea being that if a material could stretch while remaining airtight, you could make smaller air cells, creating less bulk and drag underwater, while achieving high volumes of lift when required, BioFlex eliminates chest squeeze, conforms to the diver's body and provides a slim, body hugging profile.
The BCD comes equipped with Oceanic's Reliant Integrated Inflator. Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Reliant Integrated Inflator provides a full range of airway exhaust/inflation control. Simply press a button to produce precise flow for trimming dive attitude or maximum flow for major changes in buoyancy. A large exhaust valve creates a flow rate higher than the inflation rate of the power inflator, improving diver control during ascents.
The lower profile Quick Lock & Release (QLR3) Weight System has a capacity of up to 24lbs (11kg) between the two Weight Pockets. The QLR assures weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, Oceanic's patented "Positive-Lock" System helps to ensure that they'll stay put. The BCD also comes equipped with two rear trim non-releasable weight pockets that combined hold up to 10lbs (4.5kg) of weight. The BCD has two generous zippered utility pockets for all of your accessory needs. 2-pre-bent welded stainless steel D-rings on the shoulders, multiple standard D-rings, integrated instrument retractor mount (retractor not included, see SKU: OCNBCR) and spinner knife (see SKU: OCNKSP) mounting grommets on either the left or right are all for accessory storage and attachment.
The Oceanic Probe HLC has torso adjustable shoulder straps. The shoulder straps, waist strap and sternum strap all come equipped with squeeze-style" quick-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. The BCD also comes standard with Oceanic's patented adjustable depth compensating cummerbund. The BCD provides a high lift capacity (up to 28 liters - size XL). The Prbe HLC has reflective accents for added safety, comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure hose with quick-disconnect, owner's manual and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
