Product Overview

Born of necessity and refined over years of extreme use, the TransPac XT is Dive Rite's flagship harness. The TransPac XT was Inspired by a mountaineer's style backpack distributing weight across the diver's hips and back, not the shoulders. High density foam pads on the shoulders and waist, along with a lumbar support pad provide superior comfort above and below the water. Originally designed by Dive Rite CEO Lamar Hires for his early expeditions to the remote Karst regions of Japan. On these expeditions he needed a rugged harness system that would allow him to utilize back mounted doubles and single, as well as sidemount in some of the smaller cave passages. In addition to being a versatile diving tool, the TransPac also needed to be comfortable enough to hike tanks a mile back into a dry cave.

Soft backplate is flexible and comfortable on the back. Wrap-around hip pads: Dual density foam pads provide cushioning and support and help distribute weight evenly across the hips and back. Ergonomic shoulder pads: Double-foam pads under the webbing strap provide padding comfort to the shoulder area. Lumbar support pad: Molded foam pad contoured in the right places with mesh airflow channels provides added comfort and instant water draining when topside. Chafe-free comfort: The padded shoulder straps and hip straps provide a chafe-free diving experience. Backpacking style waist belt: Supports and balances weight across the hips and back for even distribution of weight in and out of the water. Load distribution: The chest strap along with the crotch strap work together with the backpacking style waist belt and pivot ring shoulder straps to evenly distribute weight for maximum stability and comfort in the water.

Maximum Adjustability:
Shoulder straps and waist strap: Easily adjustable in length to allow for diving any type of exposure suit. Crotch strap (removable): Pull adjustment to set the exact length needed to accommodate any type of exposure suit. Cross-chest strap: Buckles across the chest with a pull adjustment to fine tune the shoulder straps in the exact position desired. Shoulder straps attach to the top of the backplate at pivot rings, allowing for easy adjustment. Pull strap on the quick-release buckles between the shoulder straps and waist strap allow for fine adjustments and a perfect fit. Shoulder strap attachment waist plates slide to allow for positioning on the waist strap at the desired location. Waist webbing can be easily replaced allowing for many years of use.

Unlimited Versatility and Customization:
Dive a single tank, double tanks, a rebreather, or sidemount by simply swapping out the wing along with some additional mounting accessories. Compatible with any XT or EXP wing in the Dive Rite line. Add accessories like gear pockets, weight pockets, a line cutter, knife, or additional D-rings with ease.

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 5 lbs. (1.93 to 2.26 kg) depending on size. The TransPac XT comes with owner's manual and is proudly made in the U.S.A.
