Product Overview

The Nomad XT is built with the ultimate streamlining in mind. A properly balanced side-mount rig should not require additional weight on the shoulders. Divers who wear heavy tanks or those just getting started with side-mount will often opt this older solution to resolve trim issues. Seeing this makeshift solution in the field, Dive Rite redesigned their off-road side-mount rig with a new, wing design. Narrow at the neck and angled at the sides with more lift added to the bottom, the Nomad XT Wing is designed to give lift where it's most needed - at the hips.

Dive Rite also, moved the inflator to the center, behind the neck and added an additional over-pressure relief valve (OPV) to the bottom so divers who wish to swap these can now do so and retain an OPV dump at the bottom of the wing for safe gas dumping when inverted. Made with a super tough exterior and modular flexibility, the outer panels of the wing are engineered using Super-Fabric Brand Technology for optimum resistance to punctures and abrasions, while remaining very flexible. In addition to its rugged exterior, the Nomad XT has the added benefit of being a modular system: the harness, wing, butt-plate and crotch strap are all separate elements. This allows the traveling explorer (or any diver wishing to modify their rig) the ability to trade out wings, remove the butt-plate or make any fit adjustments necessary to meet the objective of the dive mission.

A Gusset Control System (GCS) allows you to control lift when switching out various types of cylinders, such as going from steel to aluminum or twin tanks to single. Without the gusset control and without using the wing keepers on the waist belt, the Nomad XT delivers a full 50 lbs. (22.68 kg) of lift. The Nomad XT Side-Mount Rig comes assembled and includes a Trans-Pac XT Harness, Nomad XT Model Wing, butt-plate and 2" (5cm) crotch strap, plus loop bungees and chokers.

The Dive Rite TransPac XT Harness, exceptionally rugged, yet beautifully streamlined, the TransPac XT redefines expectations about function and comfort in Scuba harnesses. Dive Rites radically updated TransPac XT now provides a true mountaineer backpack design with an integrated hip belt, molded foam lumbar support and ergonomic shoulder pads. Available in multiple sizes with easy customization options at the shoulder and waist plate, the TransPac XT is designed to fit any size diver, including children.

The TransPac XT evenly balances weight across the hips and back distributing the weight of single or double tanks. The wrap-around hip belt made of dual density foam, snugly hugs the lower back giving critical support and cushioning. Narrow, double foam shoulder pads fit perfectly beneath the 2" (5.1cm) shoulder webbing to give chafe free comfort. The high-tech, molded foam lumbar pad is contoured in all the right places with mesh airflow channels for instant draining topside and doubles as a lift bag sleeve with an integrated pocket. Chest support strap provides ultimate load distribution and when used with the removable, 1.5" (3.8cm) crotch strap provides outstanding stability and comfort in the water. Transition plates at the shoulders allow for quick addition/deletion of hardware and finite adjustments. Dual cam straps with stainless-steel buckles are positioned to give plenty of head room for easy maneuvering in the water.

Neutrally buoyant, the TransPac XT weighs less than 5 lbs. (2.29 kg) and packs flat for travel. Optional weight pockets (see SKU: DIV3216) slide easily onto the waist belt. The soft backpack is 1,000-Denier ballistic nylon and the side plates and hardware are marine grade stainless-steel. The shoulder straps feature pivot rings at chest and Acetyl resin squeeze style quick-release buckles for easy don/doff. There are four 2" (5.1cm) D-rings on each shoulder strap on sizes M-XXL and 2 each on XS & SM. The harnesses 2" (5.1cm) nylon webbing is rated to 7,000 lbs. (3175 kg) breaking strength. The TransPac XT weighs 4.25 lbs. to just less than 5 lbs. (1.93 to 2.26 kg) depending on size. The Nomad XT Side-Mount Rig is available in single or dual bladder models comes with owner's Manual, and is proudly made in the U.S.A.
