Innovation in the travel BC
• Great buoyancy lift
• Quick-Pak system
• Plush lined padded neoprene collar
In today’s world of travel we are strictly confined by airline weight restrictions and the need to limit luggage dimensions. Thanks to the Quick-Pak system, Icon is the ideal BC for traveling, satisfying all divers’ needs: high lift, comfort padded backpack, metal D-rings, MRS, dual position adjustable chest strap and one roll up zippered pocket.
Innovation in compacting and transporting the BC. With a few quick moves, you can compact your BC to its minimum dimensions (45x30x30cm). Once closed, the BC will be better protected and can be easily stored in a closet or transported in a small travel backpack.
MRS Plus represents the evolution of MRS (Mechanical Release System), the first ballast with a mechanical release system introduced on the market: reliable, simple and easy to use. It introduces a newly designed closure system, with which a simple click is all you need to ensure easy and secure storage of the weight pockets inside the special housings in the BC. Shaped pockets to form to your waist. A single outward pull is all you need to release your weights. The oversized release handle is easy to grasp and use, even when wearing thick neoprene gloves. The large opening of the zippered weight pocket makes it easier to insert the ballast. The maximum load per pocket is 6kg/13lbs for most sizes. The Velcro interior is ideal for dividing the pocket into multiple sections if you dont use its full capacity.
