Rating: Great travel BCD
Reviewer: Victor S. T.
Nice design and quality. Needed some adjustments to the cumberbund and tank straps after they loosened up with a couple dives. Very comfortable afterwards. The weight pockets are simple enough to use. Only con would be using solid weights and going from horizontal to vertical or vice versa. The weights will shift around in the pockets giving you a slight tug. No big deal once you realize what it is.

Rating: I love this BC
Reviewer: Scott S.  -  View all my reviews
This is a great travel BC that is very well constructed and perfect for tropical dives. I wish it had two tank straps and stainless D-rings but nevertheless a fantastic BC. I am sure it will last for years. It is sized a bit on the small size. I am a medium but ended up with the large. You cant go wrong with this BC. It trims up nice with the weight pockets in the back on the tank strap.

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.

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

Optional Air XS 2 Alternate Inflator
The new AIR XS 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 can be added to any existing Oceanic BC or may be purchased already installed on a new Oceanic BC for additional savings.
