Product Overview

The Cressi Quartz BCD: Full jacket style vest developed for scuba diving schools & equipment for rental centers. Made from 500 Cordura Denier ideal for intense use & resist abrasions & cuts. It features the Integrated Flat-Lock Weight System. It features a red-colored reinforcement band in upper part of the back, at neck level, to enhance visibility in water & protect the jacket from abrasive action of the 1st stage regulator. On the right shoulder, a size indicator w/big letter, helps rental centers to get correct size when needed.

The sternum strap buckle, also serves as a safety whistle. Big 2" (50mm) quick-release buckles on shoulder straps & chest strap. Zip-up side pockets complete w/1" (25mm) techno-polymer D-rings for attaching accessories. Light-weight, rigid backplate w/carry handle. The harness system uses squeeze-style side-release buckles & adjustable straps on shoulders, chest & waist for precise adjustment & fit. A hook & loop fastener adjustable waist cummerbund provide extra security & comfort. Flat-Lock Weight System holds up to 20 lbs. (9 kg), w/10 lbs. (4.5 kg) in each pocket.

BCD is equipped w/Cressi's Commando Power Inflator w/cable activated pull dump valve & 3/8" threaded quick disconnect hose. Shoulder overpressure relief valve w/pull cord provides trimming of buoyancy. The inflator mechanism is environmentally sealed for greater reliability & less maintenance. The BCD provides from 27 lbs. to 49.5 lbs. (12.25 kg to 22.5 kg) lift (size dependent). Dry weight is from 5.3 lbs. to 6.2 lbs. (2.4 kg to 2.8 kg). Available in multiple sizes & comes w/owner's manual.

The MC9 hyper-balanced diaphragm actuated 1st stage regulator has a lightweight body covered by protective techno-polymer elastomer shell. The regulator has 4-low pressure & t2-high pressure ports. Internally the 1st stage is coated w/an anti-friction anti-corrosion material that reduces resistance & allows components to move freely. This makes the 1st stage perform & last longer & increases performance.

The chrome plated marine brass 1st stage is a balanced diaphragm design which is environmentally sealed. The diaphragm membrane transmits the pressure changes to the internal mechanism eliminating the need for surrounding water to enter the intricate mechanism. The Compact 2nd-stage housing is made of durable non-corrosive hi-tech polymers & has a downstream demand valve mechanism. The flow of air is channeled to the mouthpiece by injection, creating a venturi effect enhancing the performance. The 2nd stage comes w/a flow deviator that acts on the Venturi effect, w/dive/pre-dive adjustment function. Large soft purge cover allows easy clearing of 2nd stage & a comfortable silicone mouthpiece. The Compact MC9 Regulator weighs 30.97 oz. (878 g) w/hose. The Compact MC9 Regulator comes w/an owner's manual, is certified to EN250/2000 standards & is made in Italy.

The XS Compact 2'nd Stage Octopus has all the same features as the primary 2nd stage. The XS Compact Octopus weighs 4.76 oz. (135 g) w/o hose, comes w/a long 39" (100cm) 3/8" hose & owner's manual. Octopus is compliance with EN 250:2014 standard.

Cressi's Donatello is an underwater & freediving computer. It is ideal for other water activities, thanks to the deactivation option of the "dive" functions, that avoids unnecessary alarms while snorkeling or swimming. Donatello has a high contrast display for excellent view even in bright sunlight. The heavy-duty case w/steel button is fitted w/a bezel which, like the case, is plastic. The computer is depth rated up to 393' (120m). High contrast display with extra large numbers and easy access menu. 12/24 clock time format with calendar and high-power backlit display for low light & night dive conditions. Computer also provides surf time, desaturation & no fly time calculator & lets you know when battery needs replacing w/a low battery icon. The computer can be set for imperial or metric measurement units. The algorithm is the Cressi-Wienke RGBM for complete diving data processing. When in Scuba mode computer can be set for air or nitrox with a PPO2 1.7 psi-23.2 psi (1.2 bar-1.6 bar) configuration. Computer allows mixes of 21% to 50% oxygen. Graphic indicator of CNS toxicity level of oxygen, safety stop indicator, multiple level safety factor configuration, altitude configuration to 12,140' (3,700m) & an algorithm for managing uncontrolled ascents are other features of this versatile diving instrument. Suitable for repeated, multiday decompression. Visualization of time while diving, add / remove deep stop, alarm in case of breach of ascent speed, decompression or PPO2, ability to disable the ascent alarms, planning scroll function of no-decompression limits, maximum dive depth alarm and ability to perform a total reset, which is useful for rental purposes.

When used in the freediving (apnea) program computer display's all diving parameters of depth, temperature, dive calculator, maximum dive depth alarm, dive time, length of surface interval between each dive, length of diving session, depth, dive time and surface interval alarms, recovery time alarm and visualization of time at dive phase.

When in the Gauge program (without decompression calculator) the Donatello provides depth/temperature indicator, average depth, dive time in minutes and seconds, has a resettable depth stopwatch and a visualization of time at dive phase. All information in all modes are logged with a memory of up to 60 dives in per category. Computer has a replaceable protective display screen and a user replaceable CR2450 battery. Optional Interface of diving profile is available. Comes with an owner's manual.

Console version comes in a two-and three-gauge model. The Cressi Mini Global Pressure Gauge has a luminescent dial that reads from 0 to 5000 psi (0 to 350 bars). Gauges are ready to travel the world with you with both imperial and metric gauge face readouts. A true world travel instrument, High-quality instrument built with a chrome plated brass case. Gauge face is divided into different colored zones for at-a-glance monitoring of air the area from 0 to 600 psi (0 to 50 bars) and is highlighted in red with a solid bar and red stripes. Large circular easy-to-read scale. Pressure gauge comes with a 7/16" high-pressure hose. The instruments are housed in a small, modern shaped console boot, made from Polycarbonate and Desmopan, (a thermoplastic polyurethane) two materials that guarantee protection from shocks, scratches and which, at the same time, is very light. The entire 2-guage console boot comes with multiple attachment points for clips or lanyards.
