What's in the box: Zeagle Zena Women's BC with Octo-Z Alternate Air Source, LP Hose and Owner's Manual
Zeagle Zena Women's BC:
The greatest difficulty in properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a smaller size, or allowing for the bust, but lies in the fact that women's bodies have a defined waist where a waistband must fasten in order to secure the BC. At the same time, women tend to have both a shorter torso length and a lower center of buoyancy compared to men. Conventional buoyancy systems, which would ideally be worn lower for best balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest part of the waist, in order to be secure. The Zena's twin waist and hip band system provides a way for women to securely position the weights and buoyancy below waist level, around the body's center of buoyancy. All of Zeagle's buoyancy systems are available with women's sizing options and can be adjusted to provide excellent fit and functionality for women divers.
The Zena BC has been designed by women as a buoyancy system specifically for women. The twin straps adjust to fit waist and hips independently, while the elastic front zippered panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagle's patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted, positioning the weights low, around the body's center of buoyancy. The torso adjustable shoulder straps and side straps come equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning/doffing. The Zena BCD has a 31lb (13.6kg) lift capacity bladder, and a 24lb (10.9kg) capacity Ripcord Weight System with a 16lb (7.26kg) rear trim pocket non-releasable capacity. Attachment of accessories is made easy with the four stainless steel D-rings on the vest and storage of gloves, small light or other accessories can be accomplished with the expandable mesh quick-pocket" at waist. Built to last from the Zena will give years of reliable service. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear overpressure relief/pull dump valves. BCD weighs 6.2lbs (2.8kg).
Zeagle Octo-Z Alternate Air Source:
Zeagle regulators are US made, built under strict controls for quality in Zeagle's own factory, using state of the art equipment and procedures. Your regulator is one of your most important pieces of gear. No matter what kind of diving you do, you can do it better with Zeagle.
The OCTO-Z Inflator replaces the conventional BC power inflator and second stage octopus by combining the functions of both into a single unit. 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 OCTO-Z Breathable Inflator.
The OCTO-Z is a dependable downstream demand valve design breathable inflator. The OCTO-Z has a balanced inflator valve design and is manufactured from brass, flexible and ridged thermoplastics, elastomeric polymers and silicone rubber. The breathable inflator weighs 8oz (213g) without the hose, providing a lightweight and compact alternative to having both a standard inflator mechanism and a separate octopus regulator.
The high-flow inflator hose is 27" (69 cm) in length with 3/8" threads. The OCTO-Z is also equipped with a threaded coupling that allows you to attach the end of the BC corrugated hose to a garden hose for easy and effective rinsing of the BCD's air bladder. This feature also allows you to disconnect the OCTO-Z for storage with your primary regulator. The combining of the alternate air source and inflator mechanism also eliminates a hose and streamlines your profile when diving. BCD and OCTO-Z come with owner manuals, are made in the USA and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
