DIVE FREEDOM WITH BACK FLOTATION This premium BC fits like a glove plus comes with a pair of big cargo pockets. The SEAHAWK is a streamlined back-flotation BC. While similar to the Knighthawk in design, the SEAHAWK offers over 20 percent more buoyant lift across its size range, offers a couple extra D-rings for clipping on gear and more low-profile security buckles on its integrated weight system. It also provides a pair of very large traditional-style zippered cargo pockets for carrying accessories, something you don't often see on BCs of this design. The SEAHAWK fits like a glove and is as comfortable as can be. Strategically placed padding, an adjustable cummerbund, quick-release rotating shoulder buckles (for optimum strap routing) and a sternum strap guarantee a snug fit. With its contoured hard pack and single-band Super Cinch tank buckle that lets you lock down the tank with a single hook-and-clamp maneuver, the SEAHAWK also delivers a very stable ride at depth. The quick-release integrated weight system is first-rate in both compactness and security. Once clipped in with the oversized buckles, your ballast weights won't be going anywhere unless you want them to, and then it's an easy squeeze-and-pull for a quick ditch. Two rear trim pouches balance out the front weights for maintaining a comfortable swimming position. With substantial lift capacity in all sizes, the SEAHAWK is well-suited for cold or temperate water diving as well as cruising the tropics. Back-flotation divers who want freedom of movement, excellent stability and lots of buoyant lift in a BC with ample gear storage will find the SEAHAWK the perfect choice. * * * "A miracle in buoyancy and comfort…" -- unterwasser magazine, Febuary 2013 "Recommended..." -- taucher.net
