An Aqua Lung first! The Dimension i3 is a back inflation BCD with an integrated i3 inflation / deflation system. Loaded with features, this innovative buoyancy compensator is built with high quality materials keeping both comfort and style in mind.
Wrapture Harness System (pat. pend.) – Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from “riding-up” on the surface. Out of the water, the Wrapture keeps the cylinder close to your center of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. The result is the ability to stand up straight with a cylinder that is perfectly vertical.
i3 Control System (patented) – provides easy, one-touch control for inflation and deflation. Eliminates the traditional inflator that dangles at the end of a corrugated hose. i3 is simple and intuitive - just lift up on the lever to inflate and push down on the same lever to dump air. What’s more, when you push the lever down, all the dumps, upper and lower, open at the same time!
SureLock™ II Mechanical Weight Release System (patented) – allows you to easily insert the weight pouch and an audible "click" lets you know the weights are secure in the BC. Once engaged, the weights can be released with a firm pull the handle
HP hose routings through the back keep your entire kit low profile thus minimizing drag
The low profile flat valves reduce drag when moving through the water
A bladder retraction system is used to pull in the sides of the bladder during deflation. This keeps unit streamlined and reduces drag
Adjustable chest strap for personal comfort
A clever octo-pocket on the right lobe secures the octopus while keeping it accessible and visible throughout the dive
Two large, easy-to-access utility pockets are found on either side of the Dimension
Easy-to-access knife attachment points on the left lobe accommodate many of the Aqua Lung knives
4 stainless steel D-rings and 4 plastic D-rings (1 is located inside the left pocket) for all of your accessories
Right shoulder pull dump provides an additional dumping option
Rolled neoprene neck collar for comfort
Non-ditchable weight pockets on the back of the BC help the diver achieve proper positioning in the water
All sizes are capable of holding up to 30 lbs / 13.5 kg of lead weight
