Product Overview

The Genesis Drift BCD is an affordable, lightweight BCD appropriate for both travel and local diving.  While the pricing on this system is low, it comes with the most desired features such as integrated quick release weights and is made of very durable material.

The QDS Weight System by Genesis holds up to 16lbs with 8lbs in each releasable pocket.  The weight pockets are equipped with simple pull to release attachment clips which stay secure when installed, yet simply fall away with a pull if the scenario dictates.  

This durable BCD is constructed with a 420D nylon exterior with a urethane lamination interior air cell with radio frequency (RF) welded seams for airtight integrity.  This sturdy construction will resist tears, scratches and punctures while retaining its color for years.

Lightweight and durable, the Genesis Drift BCD is comfortable as well due to several adjustment points allowing the diver to customize the fit.  The BCD harness assembly consists of torso adjustable shoulder straps with a removable and adjustable sternum strap and adjustable waist strap with cummerbund. All strap buckles are squeeze-style side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing.

Genesis’ included power inflator mechanism with cable activated pull dump at the left shoulder provides accurate buoyancy control. The BCD is also equipped with a lower rear right pull dump/overpressure relief valve with a manual pull for trimming of buoyancy when you are inverted in the water.  The Drift provides from 24 lbs. to 40 lbs. (10.9 kg to 18.14 kg) of lift depending on the size. BCD is Akona Pro Kit compatible (see optional kit SKU: GNSRKL.
