The Axiom i3 is Aqua Lungs most Comfortable and Easy-to-Use BC yet. It is a Feature-Rich, ADV Style, and Wrap-Around Jacket that incorporates the Innovative i3 Inflation/Deflation System (patented). The integrated WAPTURE harness system (pat. Pending) allows you to stand up straight in total comfort while the cylinder remains perfectly vertical and pulled in close. Diving has never been this comfortable.
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 i3 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 of 10lbs (4.5kg).
Axiom i3 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 i3 Inflator Mechanism has a Single-Touch Control for both Inflation and Deflation. Lift-Up-to-Inflate, Push-Down-to-Deflate, what could be more simple? BC provides a Low-Profile with Flat E-Valves that are very Streamlined-and-Effective. They are also "One-Way" which keeps water out. The Multiple Dump features mean that when you depress the i3 Lever, all of the Flat E-Valves Open at once! No more reaching for the wrong valve. Flat E-Valves can be opened by the i3 Control Handle or Opened Manually. If your one who always wants to conserve your Air Supply the Pull-Down Oral Inflator is Easy-to-Deploy and Stow. It can easily be removed should you need an access port for rinsing the inside of the air cell or should you want to attach an AIRSOURCE.
To keep organized while diving the Large, Easy-to-Access, Utility Pockets found on either side of the Axiom i3 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 i3 provides from 27 to 48 lbs (12.25 to 21.78 kg) of Lift weighs 8.37 lbs (3.8 kg), comes with a Low Pressure 3/8" Threaded Hose, Owner's Manual and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Love not having to worry about the position of the release tube when wanting to deflate the vest. Easy to get in and out of.
