Wing & Backplate
The wing and backplate system is great for both recreational and technical scuba diving. It is a very modular system in that you can replace parts of the BCD to suit different types and styles of diving. For example, you can swap out the bladder to accommodate either single or double tanks. You can have a heavier stainless steel backplate for cold water diving and a lighter aluminum backplate for travel. Weight pockets can be added or removed as required, and can be placed on the side webbing or on the upper or lower tank band in the back. Accessory pockets are available which hang down onto your thigh, making them very easy to access.
Lift capacities are generally suitable for both warm and cold water diving. This style of BCD is great for quickly mastering a horizontal trim position underwater. The downside is it does tend to push you forward on the surface, however this can be overcome by simply laying back and relaxing on your back while at the surface. The simple and straightfordward harness allows the most freedom of movement for the diver.
