Aqualung Axiom Men Jacket
The new Axiom Men, also available as Axiom i3 Men BCD, and also as Lady BCD Aqualung Axiom Women is the new dive jacket from Aqualung, an optimised and modernised version of the classic Aqualung Axiom, a very comfortable and functional jacket for divers who appreciate classic buoyancy compensators with proven technology, decent lift, robust workmanship and a good fit.
Excellent fit thanks to innovative design
Like its predecessor, the new Axiom Men scores with unparalleled comfort, thanks in large part to the patented Wrapture Harness System, which features a well thought-out cut, adjustable straps, a very thin but well padded back panel and rotating shoulder buckles for a secure, comfortable and easily adjustable fit. It also keeps the jacket from sliding up on the surface, and out of the water it shifts the weight of the scuba tank to the diver's hips, making it much easier to walk upright when all geared up.
The rolled collar also ensures good wearing comfort by preventing uncomfortable rubbing or pressure in the neck area.
Streamlined profile for effortless gliding underwater
The Bladder Retraction System is an innovative drawstring system that allows the bladder to expand as much as necessary, but when deflated, the air-cell contracts to provide a streamlined profile with minimal water resistance to make diving as easy as possible. The proprietary ultra-flat valves also greatly reduce drag so you glide effortlessly through the water.
Secure tank attachment
The Axiom Men's GripLock tank attachment system secures the tank firmly and features a robust metal buckle that is child's play to operate and easy to adjust to different tank sizes, as well as a patented Finger Saver System that prevents you from pinching your fingers when locking the buckle.
Good lift and easy operation
Equipped with a classic Powerline inflator, the Axiom BCD is easy to use even for dive newcomers. The inflator head is easy to reach and the large buttons are easy to operate even when wearing gloves. There is also an additional quick release on the right hip and on the right shoulder.
With a lift of 170N in size L and over 200N in the largest size, you don't have to worry if you're out with a lot of equipment or lead at greater depths - the Axiom Jacket will get you back up safely!
Integrated, well-secured weight pockets
The Axiom Jacket's integrated weight pockets provide enough space for your weights (up to 13.5 kg in size L when using soft lead pouches with lead granulate!) and are easy to insert thanks to the guide rails that eliminate unnecessary pushing and jerking. The weight pockets are fastened with the SureLock II fastening system which guarantees a secure hold and easy release in case of emergency.
In addition, this AquaLung buoyancy compensator for men has two closable trim weight pockets on the back.
Many practical fastening options and plenty of storage space
Even divers who travel with extensive diving equipment and many instruments and accessories, such as diving instructors or professional divers, will find enough space on the Axiom Men BCD to store or fasten all the equipment: Octo-pocket to attach the alternative air supply, instrument holder on the left side, knife attachment eyelets, large side pockets, seven D-rings, 6 of them made of stainless steel, offer you more than enough space for your diving accessories.
