Dive Rite Transplate Harness Details:
A hybrid harness designed for divers who want the support of a backpack-style harness for better weight-load distribution, yet wish to dive a hard metal backplate. Designed like a mountaineer's backpack, the Transplate harness disperses weight across the hips and back, minimizing shoulder strain. When used with a 6-pound steel backplate, divers can remove or minimize weight pockets. Adjustable straps adapt to a wide variety of exposure suits and means easy donning and doffing. The modular design allows for customization with a wide variety of pockets and accessories. Available in sizes Medium thru XXL. Made in the U.S.A.
Dive Rite Transplate Harness Specifications:
Shoulder pads constructed of 1000 denier ballistic nylon fabric for tear and abrasion resistance. Two-inch (50mm) nylon webbing rated at 7,000 lbs breaking strength forms the shoulder straps and waist strap.
Four 2-inch D-rings on each shoulder strap are slightly bent for improved access and placement can be adjusted. Note: Size Medium has only one 2-inch D-ring per shoulder strap due to space limitations.
Marine Grade 316 stainless steel hardware is used throughout including: (2) bent D-rings on each shoulder strap(except MED that has only 1 bent D-ring per shoulder) and (2) waist D-rings, XT chest plates, belt buckle, cam strap buckles, and side plates.
Shoulder straps feature pivot rings at chest level for comfort, fit, and load distribution.
Acetyl resin engineered plastic quick release buckles on shoulders for easy doff and don.
One-inch nylon webbing rated at 2,200 lbs breaking strength and a Delrin 1-inch quick release buckle are used for a chest strap.

Dive Rite Stainless Steel Xt Lite Backplate details:
The next generation of lightweight backplates has arrived. Dive Rite has taken the reliability of the stainless steel backplate and combined it with the light weight characteristics of non-stainless steel backplates. The new Dive Rite XT Lite is constructed from 16 guage 316L grade stainless steel, which is a low carbon, rust resistant grade of stainless. A series of cut-outs along the body of the plate reduce its overall weight while still maintaining the support needed for the heaviest of double cylinder configurations. All edges are laser cut, and individually finished by hand to ensure that there are no rough or jagged edges anywhere on the plate.
The XT Lite backplate is configures with 11" on center mounting holes to accommodate standard double tank bolt kits, including two holes for the upper bolt to give adjustability of tank height. Two sets of 2" slots along the center allow divers to use the XT Lite for single tank diving without the need for a single tank adapter. A series of 3/8"diameter holes and 1" slots along the outer edges of the plate give different options for mounting lights, pony bottles, lift bags, and other accessories. 2" and 1" slots at the bottom center of the plate allow for any size crotch strap up to 2" in width to be used. Made in the USA.

Dive Rite Rec XT or EXP Wing details:
A hybrid wing, the Rec Series can be worn on single or double tanks making it one of our most popular wings. When diving single tanks, our Gusset Control System streamlines the wing, keeping it close to the body. This avoids the "taco” effect of the wing wrapping around the tank, away from the diver, which diminishes buoyancy control. Available in single or dual bladder, the Rec Series has 45lbs/20.4 kg of lift and can accommodate two 85ft3/12 L back mounted cylinders.
Divers may choose from our durable 1680 ballistic nylon EXP material or our even more rugged SuperFabric® brand technology XT material that creates an armor-clad outer shell that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts, with a 1680 ballistic nylon divers side panel. Both the Rec EXP (Model BC 4300) and Rec XT (Model 5300) are further enhanced with a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon laminated bladder.
As a part of our modular BCD system, it can be matched with either a TransPac® XT, Transplate or any metal backplate and webbing harness.
Dive Rite Rec XT or EXP Wing Specifications:
Model BC4300 Rec EXP has an outer bag made of 1680 denier ballistic nylon that resists tears and abrasion.
Model BC5300 has an outer bag is made of SuperFabric brand technology outer shell and 1680 ballistic nylon diver’s side panel.
Inner bladder is constructed from heavy-duty 210 denier nylon laminated bladder which is highly resistant to pinches and punctures
Urethane flanges are welded in place, which make it easy to switch out corrugated hoses and over pressurization valves without tools.
Comes equipped with choice of 16-inch rapid exhaust (pull dump), 16-inch or 12-inch elbow along with either 15-inch, 22-inch or 27-inch low pressure inflation hose.
Two sets of two marine-grade 316 stainless steel grommet mounting holes are used to attach wing to harness and/or to double tanks and set diver trim.

Dive Rite Classic XT Wing details:
The Classic XT Wing (model BC 5400) is the workhorse of our series of wings. With a history dating back to our early days, the Classic Wing has been dived and proven many times over, leading the way for divers to penetrate deep into caves, explore shipwrecks, or cruise comfortably deep on an ocean ledge. Designed solely for double tanks and with the option of a single or dual bladder, the Classic XT provides 65 lbs. (27.2 kg) of lift, which can accommodate two 104 ft3 (17 L) back mounted cylinders and two 80 ft3 (11L) stage bottles.
Supporting heavy doubles and stage bottles is one thing, but being able to properly balance and stabilize that amount of heavy gear for proper trim while swimming is where the Classic XT really shines. The donut-shape design provides excellent stability and control while diving by keeping a volume of inflation on the top, sides, and bottom. This, along with an optional integrated Gusset Control System (GCS) that reduces "taco” effect, promotes effective streamlining and puts buoyancy where it is most needed (throughout the torso supporting the weight of the tanks) for superior horizontal trim. The GCS is not like a bungee wing because it does not restrict airflow; instead, the GCS promotes added streamlining and buoyancy control, yet allows the wing to inflate to its full capacity.
Designed to handle the extremes, the Classic XT is built using our rugged SuperFabric® brand technology XT material that creates an armor-clad outer shell that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts, along with a 1680 ballistic nylon diver's side panel. Inside the SuperFabric® outer shell a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon laminated bladder enhances the ruggedness and superior performance of the Classic XT.
The Classic XT comes equipped with a choice of a 12- or 16-inch elbow or a 16-inch rapid exhaust (pull dump) along with an appropriate low-pressure inflation hose. It also has two sets of marine-grade 316 stainless steel grommet mounting holes for attaching the wing to a harness and set of tanks.
As a part of our modular BCD system, the Classic XT can be matched with either a TransPac® XT, Transplate, or any metal back plate and webbing harness.
The Classic XT is backed by our WORRY-FREE LIFETIME GUARANTEE and are made exclusively in the U.S.A.

Dive Rite Crotch Strap 1.5 Inch details:
Does the standard 1-Inch Crotch Strap have you singing an octave higher, but you like the convenience of a Quick Release buckle? The 1.5-Inch Crotch Strap QR Buckle is a welcome change to old industry standards. It comes with a slide release buckle for divers who want the convenience of a crotch strap that can be adjusted on-the-fly, yet the 1.5-inch (38.1mm) strap is more comfortable, especially if tension is added such as when scootering. Also available without Quick Release buckle (BC1058-1.5).
Using a crotch strap allows divers to fasten the harness and backplate securely to the body, ensuring more uniform trim and buoyancy characteristics in-water. It also reduces the likelihood of the tank hitting the back of the head during a dive or while resting at the surface. Made in the U.S.A.
