This jacket style BCD is a weight integrated BCD designed with dive travel in mind. It is very lightweight. Weighs approx. 5 – 6 pounds based on the size. It has a flexible back plate which makes it compact and easy to fold for packing.
This jacket has been specifically designed for those who travel by plane as it is the result of painstaking research on the most suitable materials for reducing weight to a minimum. It has exactly the same characteristics as the Flex in the sea model but with the addition of the integrated Lock Aid weight system. Nothing has been left to chance in the search to achieve a record weight, beginning with the choice of the material, a 210 denier nylon which is light yet very strong. The back is soft and padded and has a rear rubber area with a strong grip and a double strap to safely block the tank. Two generous zip up pockets allow stowing of even bulky accessories. On the back of the jacket two lead pockets allow for perfect distribution of the weights between these pockets and the Lock Aid integrated weight system. The control for the rear release valve has been placed at the front, on the lower right hand side of the jacket. All the D-rings are made from a light alloy. Travelight can be folded up in just a few seconds and fastened with a special retractable strap so that it can be stowed easily in its own carrying bag, which has a shoulder strap. Travelight’s very light structure and its anatomical shape make it a very tight-fitting and streamlined jacket once underwater and it offers very little resistance to forward movement.
