transpac.jpg (19314 bytes)DIVE RITE TRANSPAC
THE TRANSPAC II HARNESS is the heart of Dive Rite's Modular BC System. It is the latest evolution of the original "technical" diving BC -- a design that none of our competitors have yet to equal.
• No other technical BC fits as wide a range or individuals or offers the degree of personal customization that the Transpac II does.
• No other technical BC accommodates as wide a range of cylinder configurations, including: light- to heavy-weight singles; light- to -heavy-weight doubles; stage bottles and sidemounted cylinders. THE TRANSPAC II's integrated weight system holds up to 32 pound/15kg (actual capacity may vary, depending on the size and shape of the weights used). Weight system components install easily on the Transpac II's 2.0-inch/50mm waist strap.The weight system's pockets have a zipper on the top that divers can use to add or remove weight in non-emergency situations. A flap at the bottom of the pocket is held securely in place with a large Velcro® flap. In an emergency, pulling on the flap's large, color-coded tab opens the pocket.

Features:
•Removable weight pockets
•Tank-height adjustment strap
•Shoulder straps available in five sizes
•Detachable shoulder straps let you add or remove D-rings
•Six 1 in/25mm D-rings along back of harness
•Hose-retaining epaulets on both shoulder straps
•Mount doubles in any of three different positions
•Shoulder strap quick releases use "fail safe" design
•Two-inch/50mm, 45-degree shoulder D-rings are adjustable
•Mount chest strap in any of up to four positions
•Shoulder straps adjust quickly for proper length
•Single-tank band slots use industry-standard cam bands
•Two-inch/50mm, waist-band D-rings on each side
•Padded "tek" cummerbund is standard
•Shoulder strap base plates are infinitely adjustable
•Padded lumbar support
•Crotch strap attachment point

DIVE RITE's MODULAR BC SYSTEM lets you select the harness and air cell configuration that best fits your needs. Choose from traditional stainless, aluminum or ABS back plates, or the state-of-the-art Transpac II harness.

Both the traditional back plates and Transpac II work with a variety of air cells. You can even switch back and forth between air cells, depending on whether you will be using anything from lightweight singles to heavy-weight doubles with stage bottles.
No other dive equipment manufacturer offers BCs that fit such a wide range of applications, or offer the degree of comfort, fit and versatility that Dive Rite's Modular BC System does.
