Aqua Lung Dimension i3 BCD –


The Aqua Lung Dimension i3 is a backlift BCD system that uses the Aqua Lung Wrapture harness that provides a more secure and snug fit than a standard BCD.

The Dimension i3 bladder provides up to 22kg of lift in a rear configurations that allows better streamlining, trim and diver profile whilst in use and ensures better freedom of movement to the side andfront by moving the buoyancy bladder from the sides. A backlift BCD also helps to eliminate the squeezing experienced by divers in standard BCDs as the bladder inflates.

The i3 system is a complete one touch inflation / deflation control mechanism to simplify buoyancy. The i3 lever is pulled up to inflate and down to deflate. The system allows for dumping of air in any positions using special flat one way e-valves. The air is dumped out of the valve with the highest internal pressure but the valves prevent water from entering back into the BCD.

The Wrapture harness offers a very secure fit by moving the point where the shoulder strap and waist strap meet further back, much like a traditional technical harness. This helps to prevent the BCD rolling and moving about when in use. The harness also supports the SureLock II integrated weight system and expandable side pocket.

Wish they wouldn’t put all padding in there…my ProQD takes forever to dry. Why cant they just come up with a BP/W rig with an i3 already?? 🙂
