BUOYANCY COMPENSATORS
Buoyancy compensators also referred to as BC's allow you to adjust your buoyancy while diving. Most BC's are worn like jackets with the scuba tank strapped on the back. One of the nice features of these units is they can be easily slipped on and off easily. The BC can be filled with air from the scuba tank or orally. BC come in many different design and features. Some are compact and great for travel others are designed for technical diving and can support the weight of double tanks. Be sure to pick a BC that fits not only your body but also the type of diving planed.

The TransPac is the most innovative and versatile diving harness on the market. It is designed and tested to meet the most rugged diving conditions while maintaining absolute comfort. The TransPac is completely modular so not only can it be customized to fit any body type, but each piece can be replaced.

From comfortably cruising shallow reefs to penetrating deep wrecks and caves the TransPac is the original, made in the USA, BC harness that can be readily switched from single tanks to doubles, or even used with side-mounted tanks. Standard features include shoulder, waist and back plate D-rings, stainless waist belt buckle, dual shoulder releases and our exclusive dual cast stainless tank cam strap buckles. Combine the TransPac with one of our many aircells and you have a BC system that is built exactly the way you want it. The TransWeight system and other accessories can be easily mounted on the 2-inch waist belt. Optional crotch straps can increase the stability of the harness.
OMS BCs
FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE: OMS® uses 1000 denier Cordura backed with 5.0 oz of Urethane to prevent abrasion and punctures on all BC’s. Most competitors lose the First Line of Defense on their BC’s by using little urethane or no urethane backing. This leaves their product vulnerable to punctures. Housed inside our Cordura cover is a virgin urethane bladder (2 bladders on the dual bladder BC). 1. DUAL BLADDER: Inflator hoses and Dump valves are interchangeable for a variety of unique hose configurations. The dual bladder model features a total of four (4) pull dump valves located:

You're floating in the water. You rock back and forth peacefully with the swells, preparing for a head first dive into the deep blue. The world the diver lives in is constantly changing. It is quite literally a fluid environment that calls for constant adaptation. The buoyancy compensator (BC) is the platform of the SCUBA diving system that provides this flexibility and its importance should not be overlooked.

  Oceanic Buoyancy Compensators
The Outrigger is just one of the revolutionary low-profile, rear inflation BCs with a patented flow-through High Lift Transfer (HLT) system designed to transfer buoyant lift from the rear bladder to a 15-pound front bladder for effortless face-up surface flotation. Experienced divers agree that a rear inflation design is best for streamlined freedom of movement and positioning underwater, while a jacket style provides more superior surface flotation. Now you can have the best of both worlds.

In designing our BCs, DUI engineers have paid close attention to the details with two instrument retractors for your gauges and lights and bent “D” rings for easy attachment. They have also designed accessory pockets that the diver can actually see into.

DUI has spent a lot of time in ergonomic studies to see to it that the harnesses truly conforms to the human body even to the point of designing one BC, the DELTA, to have infinite, quick adjustments. Just as DUI drysuits are in a class all of their own we invite you to test them and you will find that DUI Buoyancy Control Systems are also in a class all of their own. The reaction of the divers using them at the DOG Rally & Demo Days is nothing less than astounding.
