websites full of information on buoyancy compensators and other scuba equipment.
Buoyancy compensators also referred to as BC's allow you to
adjust your buoyancy while diving. Most BC's are worn like
jackets with the scuba tank strapped on the back. One of the
nice features of these units is they can be easily slipped on
and off easily. The BC can be filled with air from the scuba
tank or orally. BC come in many different design and features.
Some are compact and great for travel others are designed for
technical diving and can support the weight of double tanks. Be
sure to pick a BC that fits not only your body but also the type
of diving planed.

The TransPac is the most innovative and versatile diving harness on the
market. It is designed and tested to meet the most rugged diving
conditions while maintaining absolute comfort. The TransPac is
completely modular so not only can it be customized to fit any body
type, but each piece can be replaced.
From comfortably cruising shallow reefs to penetrating deep wrecks and
caves the TransPac is the original, made in the USA, BC harness that can
be readily switched from single tanks to doubles, or even used with
side-mounted tanks. Standard features include shoulder, waist and back
plate D-rings, stainless waist belt buckle, dual shoulder releases and
our exclusive dual cast stainless tank cam strap buckles. Combine the
TransPac with one of our many aircells and you have a BC system that is
built exactly the way you want it. The TransWeight system and other
accessories can be easily mounted on the 2-inch waist belt. Optional
crotch straps can increase the stability of the harness.
OMS BCs FIRST
LINE OF DEFENSE: OMS® uses 1000 denier Cordura backed with 5.0 oz of
Urethane to prevent abrasion and punctures on all BC’s. Most competitors
lose the First Line of Defense on their BC’s by using little urethane or
no urethane backing. This leaves their product vulnerable to punctures.
Housed inside our Cordura cover is a virgin urethane bladder (2 bladders
on the dual bladder BC). 1. DUAL BLADDER: Inflator hoses and Dump valves
are interchangeable for a variety of unique hose configurations. The
dual bladder model features a total of four (4) pull dump valves
Buoyancy Compensators You're floating in the water. You
rock back and forth peacefully with the swells, preparing for a head
first dive into the deep blue. The world the diver lives in is
constantly changing. It is quite literally a fluid environment that
calls for constant adaptation. The buoyancy compensator (BC) is the
platform of the SCUBA diving system that provides this flexibility and
its importance should not be overlooked.
