  • Walter:

    Hi, Could you please provide me with size information on the above BCD in a Medium Large, as I can’t find it in the size chart. I would like to know the height and waist size, is it large with respect to length and medium waist size or the other way around? Thanks Walter.

Patented BioFlex® Super-Stretch Air Cell
Your equipment should enhance, not hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving. Nowhere is this more important than with BC's, where comfort and freedom of movement must be balanced against function and durability. Responding to this challenge led Oceanic design engineers to create BioFlex - a unique 'living fabric' that stretches, flexes and conforms to the body. BioFlex is an extraordinary fabric, which stretches, fully inflated up to 30% over conventional nylon or polyurethane BC materials. The idea being that if a material could stretch while remaining airtight, you could make smaller air cells, creating less bulk and drag underwater while achieving high volumes of lift when required. BioFlex eliminates chest squeeze, conforms to the diver's body and provides a slim, body hugging profile.

New Patented QLR 3(Quick Lock & Release) Weight Integration System
Oceanic's patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System is standard equipment on the Probe HLC. 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.

Rear 'Trim' Weight Pockets
Located on the back of the BC on either side of the tank cradle. Provides greater integrated weight capacity and better attitude underwater. Carries up to 5 kg non-dumpable

Fadeless 1600 Denier Ballistic Nylon Construction
Exterior abrasion points of the Probe HLC are covered in our new 'Fadeless' 1600-denier ballistic nylon - tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that 'new look' longer.

Pre-Bent Stainless Steel D-rings
Welded and slightly bent for easy, one-handed attachment.

Adjustable Position Sternum Strap
Allows for a comfortable and safe fit.

Optional Integrated Retractor System
Built-in retractor attachment point - perfect for streamlining gauges, lights and other essentials.

Spinner Knife Mounting Grommets
Located just above both the left and right pockets, a pair of stainless steel grommets keep our SPINNER BC KNIFE out of the way but just where you want it.

Reliant Integrated Inflator
Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Reliant 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.

Patented Depth-Compensating Adjustable Cummerbund
Oceanic's patented depth compensating cummerbund is manufactured from a unique woven elastic material that eliminates the need to readjust as your suit compresses at depth. Oceanic's cummerbund offers up to 20 cm of adjustment to fit a wide range of sizes. For additional customization, the cummerbund may be easily changed with another size.

Padded Backpack and Lumbar Support
Extra heavy duty padding provides comfort both above and below the surface without having to sacrifice the stability of a hard backpack.

Large Main Zippered Pockets
Zippered so they're easy to get into. Enough room to store your light, extra mask, Pocket Snorkel, slates, and more!

Optional Air XS 2 Alternate Inflator
The new AIR XS combines the reliability, performance and durability of the SlimLine OCTOPUS and Reliant 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 can be added to any existing Oceanic BC or may be purchased already installed on a new Oceanic BC for additional savings.
