Has the BC auto inflate issue been corrected in the newer valves?
Hello Garth, this is not an auto inflate system designed into this BCD. If you need to inflate this BCD you will need to press the inflate or deflate button on the power inflator. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
I should have said unplanned/inadvertent inflation. I replaced one under warranty and it did it again thus I bought one thru you
Hello Garth, it could be you use your inflator alot when your underwater. If you do you can get salt, sand, dirt, build up in there that could make the buttons stick. You should rinse your gear in clean fresh water. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822
I am a little confused what the weight pocket is. Does it come with the integrated weight system and this weight pocket is a add-on to carry more weight, or is the weight pocket actually the integrated weight system and you cant add weight to the BC without the pockets?
In regards to the weight pockets...where do I go to purchase weights that fit in this BC, and what is the maximum weight I could use in it? Ive never used an integrated BC like this, only weight belts for weight.
Hello Tom, you can get weight for this at: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-154/046022/XS-Scuba-Lead-Shot-Weight.html. As for weight this BC will hold 20 lbs 10 lbs on each side.
The picture on your site looks completely different than the photo on the Oceanic website. Is there a newer or older version? Does your item have pockets?
Please will I have to add a weight to BC before I use it and also I want to know if a BC can be used in a surface demand diving with kb Morgan 37 helmet,thanks
Hello Onyige, yes you would have to add weight to the BC if you need weight. This BC does not come with weight. As for this working with KM 37 as long as you have the power inflator hose connected to the surface supplied air yes you will be able to inflate this while you are under water.
Designed to withstand the daily rigors of rental and training departments around the world
Durable 1000D denier fadeless nylon construction
Available with or without Oceanic's QLR Integrated Weight System. Accommodates up to 9kg
Integrated backpack with carrying handle
Easy to adjust quick release shoulder adjustments
Strategically placed plastic d-ring attachment points
Patented QLR (Quick Lock & Release) Weight Integration System
The OceanPro 1000D may be purchased with or without Oceanic's patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System. If you choose not to buy them with your BC, you will have 2 additional storage pockets and may add the QLR Weight Pockets at any time. Your weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, our patented 'positive-lock' system helps to ensure that they'll stay put.
Fadeless 500 Denier Ballistic Nylon Construction
The OceanPro 1000D air cell is welded from a fadeless 500 denier nylon. Exterior abrasion points are covered in our fadeless 1600 denier ballistic nylon - tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that 'new look' longer.
Alliance Integrated Inflator
Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Alliance Integrated Inflator provides a full range of airway exhaust/inflation control. Simply press a button to produce precise flow for trimming dive attitude or maximum flow for major changes in buoyancy. A large exhaust valve creates a flow rate higher than the inflation rate of the power inflator, improving diver control during ascents.
Oceanic's cummerbund offers up to 8' of adjustment to fit a wide range of sizes. For additional customization, the cummerbund may be easily changed with another size.
Extra heavy duty padding provides comfort both above and below the surface without having to sacrifice the stability of a hard backpack.
2 Large Main Pockets
Enough room to store your OceanPro 1000D Light, extra Shadow Mask, Pocket Snorkel, or P.S.D.!
Optional Air XS 2 Alternate Inflator
The AIR XS 2 combines the reliability, performance and durability of the SlimLine OCTOPUS and ALLIANCE INFLATOR into one very low profile, streamlined package. The regulator/inflator combination is as small as many BC inflators alone, with breathing performance superior to many stand-alone octopus regulators.
The AIR XS 2 can be added to any existing Oceanic BC or may be purchased already installed on a new Oceanic BC for additional savings.
