Aqua Lung Outlaw BCD
Aqua Lung’s new Outlaw BCD might take the cake for best new product at DEMA 2016. The Outlaw BCD has a unique modular design which can be customized in minutes, and weighing in under 4.5 Lbs (2kg) the Outlaw is your go to travel BC.
The Outlaw has 12Lbs of lift, although you can upgrade to an extra large air cell with 25Lbs of lift. This warm water BCD is made for badass divers who have perfected their buoyancy, and the Outlaw is not for everyone. If you are trying to improve your buoyancy, Outlaw can help. Make sure to dial in your weight on a shallow dive before taking it out to the open ocean.
To create a customizable BCD, Aqua Lung has made three sizes of back plates, shoulder straps, and waist straps. By the power of mathematics, this makes for a possible 27 size combinations for the Outlaw.
Aqua Lung has engineered the shoulder and waist straps so they can only be removed in the worn position. All you need is a small Allen key, which you slide between the back and strap, depress a small plastic tab and voila, the strap comes off. This feature is made so the BCD can be modified while someone is trying it on at a dive shop.
The Outlaw comes with optional, removable trim weight pockets for $35 or ditchable sure lock weight pockets for $70. The Outlaw BCD will be available in February 2017 and will sell for $389 USD.
