The Sure-Lock II is Easy to Load and remains Secure until you want to release it. The Sure-Lock II Weight Pockets align themselves. Just Insert-the-Pocket until it "Clicks". A simple, Single-Pull Release is all that is needed to jettison the weights in an emergency. The Black Ice also has Fixed Non-Releasable Weight Pockets in Back with Capacities 10 lbs (4.5 kg).The 3-Flat E-Valves, One on the Right-Shoulder and One on the Left-Lower-Rear and One on the Right-Lower-Rear Reduce Drag and keep the BC Streamlined. The Valves are designed as One-Way to keep Water-Out.

The Black Ice comes equipped with Aqua Lungs Power Line Inflator with an Increased Fill Rate which is now, one of the Highest Air Flows in the Industry. The Power Line is an Environmentally Sealed Unit for less maintenance, has Integrated-Hose Clips for attachment to the LP Hose for a Streamline and Low Profile. The Inflator is equipped with a Cable Activated Rapid Exhaust at the top, simply Pull-Down on Lower Unit to Dump Air.

The Left Pocket is a Fold-Down design with Deep-Capacity, perfect for an Extra Mask. The Right Pocket is a Large-Utility-Pocket secured with a Robust Zipper Closure. Knife Attachment Points are found on the Left Pocket Flap which will accommodate many of the Wenoka Squeeze Lock Knives. This location provides easy access to the knife.

        The black ice is a great BC. I am a very busy dive instructor here in Florida and I wear my black ice every day. This is my favorite BC that I have ever used. Very durable.

          Comments about Seaquest APEKS Black Ice BCD:

          I am 5'7 145 lbs with an athletic build and the small fits me perfectly.(it's adjustable straps make for a great fit, easy to get in and out of)

          When the APEKS Black Ice BCD first came out it was a hot item and I had a hard time getting my hands on it for my first trip to Bonaire so I had to rent a Scuba Pro BCD. I dove with 6 pounds the first time but when going back to Bonaire last month with the Black ice I ended up having to add weights. I'm now at 10 pounds. A dive shop salesman said that besides taking into account the fluctuation amount of salt in the water in Bonaire that with a larger bladder that i had more buoyancy even when deflated completely.
