About Zeagle Backplates

This standard Zeagle Backplate is extremely rugged and simplistically designed for more technical divers. While anyone can dive with a backplate, it does not incorporate comfortable features that recreational divers love and enjoy. Backplates are the bare necessity of diving. They accept a variety of different bladder sizes and styles that technical divers may need and incorporate a multitude of gear attachment points while maintaining lightweight and simplistic properties.

This backplate comes in one of two styles: anodized aluminum and stainless steel. Anodized aluminum offers the stability of a stainless steel backplate but weighs considerably less. Stainless steel offers unparalleled durability and stability and requires less added weight when diving.

Both options come with durable nylon webbing shoulder and waist straps and feature enough accessory attachment points than you will know what to do with.

One reason why the Zeagle Backplates is popular is because of its Durable.

        Comments about Zeagle Backplates:

        I use this with my double 131 OMS tanks. Very secure with the heavy tanks. Also very easy to go back and forth with single tanks. I am a rescue diver with a rescue squad. This allows for many variations with dive set up.

        Get the stainless!

        By cranky techie

        About Me Advanced

        Pros

        • Durable
        • Easily Adjustable

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Cold Water
          • Extreme Depths

          Comments about Zeagle Backplates:

          I have the aluminum, which is okay. (I got a great deal on it) But it is prone to corrosion, because the anodize gets scratched by the hardware that holds your doubles in place. Certainly buying new, the extra $15 for the stainless is well worth it.

          Titanium is just silly, unless you wear zero lead on your weight belt. (think about it, if you make the BP lighter, you'll just have to add lead to compensate. Your lowest staggering weight on the boat is when every part of cyour rig is made out of the strongest, thinest and densest materials available)

            • Doing it Sort-of Right

            Comments about Zeagle Backplates:

            Like the Backplate better with Doubles. They work fine with the BCs but feel more stable and have more freedom here. The Stainless Steel plate let me drop 5 lbs too. The Backplate gave me more sturdy mounting options for can light, etc. Also, a 6ft pony slips up on the side out of the way and is held with the valve right where I want it. Everything mounts perfectly for a doing-it-sort-of-right diver like me. I don't use exact GUE configuration but the platform allows everything to stay where I put it for instant easy access.

              difficult to attach to my Tech B.C. because L.P. didn't send all the proper straps, nuts + bolts along for attachment. I called Zeagle and got the attachment video along with an,(Im sorry L.P. didn't send the straps). I explained how I attached it and they said "good job, innovative but not right, but ok. The unit was one price when out of stock and higher price when in stock, but still cheaper then the local dive shop w-L.P./30% off.
