About Aqua Lung Axiom BC

The Axiom is a durable, full-featured BC that boasts amazing Comfort and Fit. This ADV Style, Wrap-Around Jacket gets its noticeable Comfort and Support from Aqua Lung's Proprietary WRAPTURE Harness System (patent pending). The WRAPTURE Harness System, utilizing a Specialized Back-Plate, Valve Retention Strap and Swivel Shoulder Buckles to provides Unsurpassed Comfort. The WRAPTURE Harness System not only Hugs-the-Contours of the Body providing Superior Comfort and Stability, it also Supports the Scuba Cylinder in a way that has never been more Comfortable to the Diver. The WRAPTURE allows you to Stand-up-Straight in Total Comfort while the Cylinder remains Perfectly-Vertical and pulled in Close while preventing "Ride-Up" at the Surface. This Comfort, along with the Innovative Grip-Lock Tank Band and the Sure-Lock Integrated Weight System will make the Axiom the new standard for recreational divers.

The Grip-Lock Tank Band System makes Attachment to a Cylinder Easier than ever before. Gone are the days of complicated web weaving and you don't have to worry about pinching your fingers with the innovative finger saver feature (patent pending). The Axiom BCD features the Patented and Innovative Sure-Lock II Mechanical Weight Release System with 20 to 30 lbs (9 to 13.5 kg) Capacity (sizes dependent). 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 Axiom also has Fixed Non-Releasable Weight Pockets attached to the Cylinder Band with Capacities from 10lbs (4.5kg).

Axiom uses a Super Streamlined Air Cell Design making it one of the most Streamlined Jacket Style BCs in the world. The Air Cell is made from 500D Amor CORDURA with Armor X Color Panels and 1050D Ballistic Nylon. A Bladder Retraction System is used to Pull-in-the-Sides of the Bladder during Deflation. The Axiom has Adjustable Torso Shoulder Straps and a Cross Chest Sternum Strap. The Sternum Strap is equipped with a Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckle.

The Two Flat E-Valves, one on the Right-Shoulder and One on the Left-Lower-Rear Reduce Drag and keep the BC Streamlined. The Valves are designed as One-Way to keep Water-Out. The Right Shoulder and Lower Left Pull Dumps are easy to locate and use with Large Pull Bobs. The Axiom 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.

To keep organized while diving the Large, Easy-to-Access, Utility Pockets found on either side of the Axiom are Secured with Zippers. In addition, 5 Stainless Steel D-Rings and 1 Plastic D-Ring is provided for all of your Accessories. Knife Attachment Points are found on the Left Lobe. Some divers may find it useful to run their Instruments behind the Left Pocket and out the Scooped-Opening on the Top, Front of the Lobe. A Scooped Octopus-Pocket on the top, front of the right Lobe makes it Easy-to-Stow and Deploy an Octopus Regulator. The Octopus Regulator remains Visible and Accessible throughout the Dive. The Axiom provides from 27 to 48 lbs (12.25 to 21.77 kg) of Lift, weighs 7.87 lbs (3.57 kg), comes with a Low Pressure 3/8" Threaded Hose, Owner's Manual and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

      Veru well built, stable, nice weight release system. Fits very big if you're tall and slim. More than height and weight, take a look at chest and over the shoulder measures for proper sizing.
      Looks sturdy, octo pocket and gauge pocket are a very clever bonus.

        This is a very well thought out BCD. Its very comfortable, not overly padded or overly bulky. I like that is doesnt have a cumberbund. Cannot comment on durability yet but it appears very well made. I have tried many bcds from lightweight travel to heavy duty backplate and wing systems. In the end this bcd turned out to be just right. Not too lightweight and not to heavy. By the way this can be folded down to fit in a carry on suitcase.

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            WILLIAM M  I bought this base on brand and price fit. I am somewhat pleased. It is a lot heavier than my old BC, but with change comes adjustment. I used it this past weekend for the first time. Overall its good. 3 things I do NOT like: the inflator hose is hard to locate when needed. Both purge valves are not easy to access even though they appear to be and the the pocket that your console feeds thru and holds does not allow ease of accessibility to see pressure and computer gauge.
            David O  Hi, I’m looking to buy an Axiom BCD, but struggling with what size I should go for…. Hoping someone could provide some guidance. Height 6,2 Weight 230lb/105kg Waist 36 The problem is I’m tall with broad shoulders, but have a narrow waist. In the size chart the Large starts at 38 waist and the concern is the BCD might ride up on me underwater… I normally dive a 5mm wetsuit, so that might also push the waist size up a little... I know that sizing is key with the wrapture system. Should I go for the ML, or Large? Many Thanks, David
            ALLAN A  I'm 6'0" and 210 lb.s and the large fits me well.
