The Alpha 9 CDX-5 features effortless breathing in a compact design that is extremely tough yet easy to maintain and service, and is paired with a compact over-balanced diaphragm first stage. The CDX5 first stage is made of Chrome Plated Marine Grade Brass and is a Balanced Diaphragm Design. With this design water doesn't enter the first stage, which means the CDX5 is excellent for ice diving (it won't freeze up) or diving in waters filled with contaminants or sediment (it won't corrode). Environmentally sealed, the diaphragm membrane transmits the pressure changes to the internal mechanism eliminating the need for the surrounding water to enter the intricate mechanism. The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the internal parts are exposed to contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids. These environmental contaminants cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance. As is the Alpha 9 CDX-5, comes ready to use with air or nitrox mixtures up to 40 percent. 2 high pressure and 4 low pressure ports assure a place for all your necessities and accessories.
The Alpha 9 Regulator Second Stage has a Patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece for exceptional comfort and Reduced Jaw Fatigue. In Addition the 30" (76.2 cm) Max-Flex Hose with its extreme Flexibility further reduces any Jaw Fatigue, making this one comfortable breathing regulator. The Alpha 9 is suitable for use with nitrox mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen out of the box. Regulator weighs 35 oz (992.23 g) and the front profile dimension is only 2.9" (7.4 cm).
Oceanic set out to make a standard" regulator that was simple, dependable and economical. What they didn't expect was that in tests it would outperform other high-end regulators. Not an easy feat for a standard" downstream demand valve regulator. With the Alpha 9, you get effortless breathing in a compact design that is extremely tough yet easy to maintain and service.
The Alpha 9 Octopus has a Patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece for exceptional comfort and Reduced Jaw Fatigue. In Addition the 36" (91.4 cm) Bright Yellow Max-Flex Hose with its extreme Flexibility further reduces any Jaw Fatigue, making this one comfortable breathing regulator in an Out-of-Air Situation. The Alpha 9 is suitable for use with nitrox mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen. Regulator weighs 6 oz (170 g) and the front profile dimension is only 2.9" (7.4 cm).
The Flex Jacket Style BC is made with Patented BoiFlex material- a living fabric" that stretches, flexes and conforms to your body. With a material that can stretch while remaining airtight, Oceanic is able to make a smaller air cell, creating less bulk and drag underwater while achieving high volume of lift when required. The Flex BCD has a 1,000-Denier fadeless body material for strength and durability. The Flex has two oversized Zippered Pockets for plenty of storage. The Padded Soft Pad over compact backpack streamlines the BCD when you need to pack it for your next dive trip and keeps you comfortable when you are diving. BCD comes equipped with Oceanic's QLR3 Integrated Weight System that accommodates up to 20 lbs (9 kg), plus dual 5 lbs (2.3 kg) trim weight pouches which add stability while you dive.
The BCD has Torso Adjustable Shoulder Straps, Adjustable Depth Compensating Cummerbund with a Quick-Release Buckle and a Dual Adjust Sternum Strap with a Safety Whistle all to make the BCD a comfortable and safe fit.

Comments about Oceanic Flex 2 QLR3 BC, CDX5 Alpha 9 Regulator, Alpha 9 Octopus and VEO 2.0 Computer Package:
I thought it deceiving that a BCD would not include weight pockets. Had I known, I would have ordered a couple of pockets with the 'complete' package.
The PDC does not come with a compass. Again, had I known I would have bought one with the so-called "complete" package.
Most shocking: the PDC is NOT Mac compatible. Again, had I known, I would have purchased something else.
