The Camo series weight vest is meant for divers using our (Huntsman and Huntress) wetsuits who need more weights than a belt can fit, or who want to more evenly distribute the weights they are carrying. A more even distribution of weights is important in shallow water and can help to keep you concealed in weed beds and shallow reef alike. By putting a third of your weight in your vest, you will achieve a more even spread of weight, putting less stress on your lower back. It is also safer than over loading a weight belt with too much weight.
Most good weight vests attach to your weight belt in one form or another making it hard to quickly separate the belt from the vest in an emergency. The Camo weight vest uses a simple plastic ball that tucks under the belt and locates the vest snug on your back to avoid it riding up your shoulders when duck diving.
The benefit of this system is that when making an emergency ascent by dropping your weight belt you’ve lost two thirds of your total weight without having to worry about clips, straps or fasteners. If you need to drop the remaining third of your weight it’s a simple task of 2 quick release clips. We found that other styles of vests that thread a single clip through oversized D rings had a tendency to get hung up under load. We don’t compromise on safety and believe our vests use the safest connection method on the market.
Our Unique Camo Design (Harbinger):
“Be seen when you want, disappear when it counts!”
Our various camo colours suit all habitats. Blaze for rocky structures, Blue for pelagic species in open water, Green for grassy and weedy habitats and then Red and Pink for the reef. Red and Pink are bright and visible on the surface and fade to an inconspicuous blend of grey and granite at depth.
