THE ULTIMATE STREAMLINED TRAVEL BC

Lightweight, low-profile design is built with dive-trekkers in mind.


In the world of scuba diving, nothing exemplifies freedom of movement better than the feeling you get wearing a bulk-free, back-flotation BC.  Especially a back-flotation BC built specifically for dive travel. Like the LITEHAWK.

Featuring an ultra-slimmed-down design and a soft, flexible backpack, the LITEHAWK's lightweight, low-profile shape lays flat for packing, making it ideal for travel. The adjustable belt-style waist strap with nylon buckle can be cinched up snug. Add the quick-release rotating shoulder buckles that let you route the straps under your arms, plus the two-position sternum strap, and you end up with a BC that hugs your body like it was custom-made for you.

But you can't fully appreciate the LITEHAWK until you get it in the water. With the tank secured by a lower primary tank band, an upper support strap and an adjustable yoke strap, the entire system locks in, ensuring a controlled, stable ride at depth. The BC carries no inherent buoyancy so only minimal ballast weight is required. Consequently, the two non-ditching pockets can be used either to carry ballast weight or accessories. Optional quick-release pockets are also available, and four aluminum D-rings provide convenient clip-on points for additional gear.

The LITEHAWK provides a streamlined package that travels easy and delivers a comfortable, stable ride at depth, making it well-suited for both tropical and temperate water travel diving.
