The AVID CQR‚3 features an updated weight release system providing more convenience and ease when installing and removing the pockets. The redesigned styling of the traditional jacket-style AVID maintains its respected functionality, comfort and dependability. The AVID CQR‚3 is a natural progression in Sherwood's forward-moving product development.
This jacket-style BC wraps air completely around you for easy floating. When fully inflated, the 3-D air cell and the suspension strap system combines to create a stable and secure fit that is designed to eliminate squeeze. BC is equipped with six convenient, stainless steel D-rings to attach your gear and zippered utility side pockets for additional scuba accessories. A convenient utility pocket with Velcro closure sized to carry the AKONA Safety Tube (SKU: AKNST). A removable and adjustable sternum strap for a complete fit and an easy to operate oral and power inflator makes buoyancy control a snap when diving.
Three dump valves strategically located at the left and right shoulders with a third on the lower left of the air cell make dumping air a breeze. The right and lower dump/overpressure relief- valves have pull dump handles for quick access. The third valve is integrated to the top of the Gemini inflator/regulator and is activate by a cable running down the corrugated Gemini inflator hose. The Avid CQR 3 BCD is available in 7 sizes from XS to 3XL with a lift capacity of 20 to 36 lbs (9 to 16.3 kg). The air cell is manufactured with durable and heavy-duty 1000 Denier that is urethane laminated for air tight integrity.

The Sherwood Gemini gives you exceptional breathing performance without any in-water adjustments required. Made with durable materials, the Gemini gives you superior performance that you would expect from a primary regulator. The Gemini replaces the conventional BC power inflator and backup second stage regulator. With this two-in-one breathing device, an extra hose is eliminated, giving you a less cumbersome dive. The power inflation, oral inflation, and exhaust trim valve are designed to remain similar to standard BC inflators, so you are already familiar with the Gemini's operating system.
When you're taught how to dive you are given practice in buoyancy control more than any other skill. Once you start to dive every time you go underwater, fin the reef, or surface you use buoyancy control. All this time your octopus second stage regulator hangs un-used and out of mind. When a real life out-of-air situation occurs, the stress and anxiety mounts, and you find yourself fumbling for a piece of equipment you never use the Octopus! Combining your inflator devise (that you use on every dive) with your octopus Regulator assures your ability to react properly when an out-of-air emergency occurs. Be a safe diver with the Gemini Breathable Inflator. The Gemini comes equipped with an Owner's Manual; a 3/8" Threaded High-Flow Quick-Disconnect Hose and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
