Commercial Diver

By Mike Lindow on 22 Dec. 2020

I believe this product performs Excellently. The comfort fitting vest and backpack Along with its well crafted Harnessing system Makes it the most comfortable Safety harness I have ever worn. Having the weight integrated into the harness and the capability to jettison the weight in emergency makes it top notch for any commercial diver. I highly recommend this product!

Great product

By Gage Rexroth on 28 Apr. 2021

Comfortable to wear with full weights can be a pain to pick up and get on if your alone but feels amazing in the water, 4 kg weights are a bit tight in the pockets but will fit had dive locker let some rain in so it sat wet for a day before I got back to it and colors started to bleed in a few spots but still in great condition
