"If you have a separate Zeagle wing they should be compatible." Should be is not the answer I was looking for. If I buy the Zeagle backplate and harness I need to know.

Many divers have come to appreciate the ruggedness, simplicity, and stability of metal backplates in a buoyancy system. Now you can have a range of backplate buoyancy options that take full advantage of Zeagle’s flexible sizing and wide range of bladder options.
This new harness features a simple threading pattern that allows for easy adjustments and is very easy to add D-rings and other accessories to the shoulder and waist straps. The upper shoulder straps are connected by a swiveling 2' side release that adjusts to the divers body shape to eliminate binding and restriction of movement at the chest and underarm areas. The Shoulders can either to run straight or crossed in the back depending on the divers size and or diving preferences. The double adjusting chest strap, stainless steel waist buckle and four 2' D-rings are included. This is truly one of the most comfortable and flexible technical style harness's available.
Zeagle’s backplate systems come with a choice of standard webbing or deluxe harness styles, and can use any of Zeagle’s existing single or twin tank bladder assemblies, ranging from a streamlined 34 lbs lift all the way up to the dual 85 lb bladder “Big Bertha”. Combined with the options for single or twin tank mounting, crotch straps, shoulder pads, and other accessories, this means you can have a custom configured BC system for the price of a stock BC!
For the technically minded, the backplate has mounting provisions for other accessories such as lights and sling bottles, and scooter rings on the crotch straps.

What about construction and warranty?
All Zeagle Buoyancy Systems are hand sewn from the best available materials and heavily reinforced at all stress points. Our style of construction is labor intensive and expensive, but it results in a more durable, better fitting BC. Individual components of the system are replaceable or repairable if damaged. This quality of construction makes it possible for us to offer a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. If a defect appears or the system fails at any time while you own it, Zeagle will repair or replace the system free of charge.
