STABILITY, SECURITY & ALL-ROUND COMFORT
A wraparound bladder, nice padding and loads of additional features make this an ideal choice for all diving scenarios.
Climb into a front-adjustable BC and prepare yourself to enjoy a reassuring sense of well-being as you descend into the depths. That's because with a front-adjustable BC the air bladder wraps around you, placing lift primarily under the arms and around the waist, rather than behind you. Also, because a front-adjustable BC is so well-balanced you're less reliant on rear trim weights to achieve a comfortable swimming position. Finally, if you have to spend any time on the surface, either preparing for your dive or waiting for the dive boat to come pick you up, a front-adjustable BC's wraparound design provides a very relaxing surface floating position.
The GLIDE X is a perfect example of a full-featured front-adjustable BC that's as comfy as a favorite old coat. Strategically placed padding, an adjustable cummerbund, quick-release rotating shoulder buckles (for optimum strap routing) and a sternum strap all work together to deliver a comfortable, dialed-in fit.
With its contoured hard pack and single-band Super Cinch tank buckle, the GLIDE X also delivers a stable ride at depth. The integrated quick-release weight system is first-rate in both compactness and security. Once clipped in, your ballast weights won't be going anywhere unless you want them too, and then it's an easy buckle squeeze-and-pull for a quick ditch.
Two large zippered cargo pockets are fitted with grommets for attaching a knife. There's also a small zippered storage pouch on the cummerbund, and four large pre-bent stainless steel D-rings, along with two smaller stainless D-rings, provide convenient clip-on points for additional gear.
For divers who like the comfort and security that comes with a wraparound air bladder design, the GLIDE X is hard to beat. Fully adjustable, it comes in a wide range of sizes so you'll be sure to find that perfect fit.
