What's in the box: BCD, Gemini Octopus, LP Hose and Owner Manuals
Sherwood Scuba's New ZODIAC+ Jacket Style BC incorporates Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) with an Innovative, User-Friendly-Design. This BC sets new standards for Durability and Ease-of-Use among Buoyancy Compensators. The TPU material combines Extraordinary Strength-and-Durability with the unique ability to Dry-almost-Instantly. No matter how long you dive, the ZODIAC+ Will-Not Absorb a Single-Drop-of-Water. After a dive, just a Quick-Rinse and it will be Dry-in-Minutes. The TPU material will NOT Degrade from UV Exposure. Known as Photo-Degradation, Exposure to the Ultraviolet Rays of the Sun Brutalizes most materials, causing Cracking, Fading, Loss-of-Flexibility and Strength. But TPU has Exceptional Resistance to UV Rays, so the ZODIAC+ will not fade even from long hours of exposure to sunlight.
br>The ZODIAC+ BCD has a Rear-Pull Air Dump/Over-Pressure Relief Valve to Quickly-Adjusts and Maintain-Buoyancy throughout Dive. Adjustments for a Perfect Fit are Made-Easy with the Torso Adjustable Shoulder Straps, Adjustable Sternum Strap and Waist Strap with Cummerbund all employing Squeeze-Style" Side-Release Buckles for Easy-Donning-and-Doffing. Accessory Attachment is made Easy with D-Rings at the Waist. The BCD provides Lift Capacities from 17lbs to 40lbs (7.7kg to 18kg) depending on the Size.
Accessory Attachment and Storage are made Easy with Multiple-D-Rings at the Waist along with 2-Large Zipped Pockets designed for Easy Access. The ZODIAC+ has Easy-Load Weight Pockets that accept up to 8 lbs (3.6kg) each. The Weight System consists of 2-Removable Weight Bags that are Easy-to-Ditch when needed. BCD comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
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.
