Aqualung Axiom i3 Men Jacket
The BCD Axiom i3 Men, also available as Axiom i3 Women, is a modern and high quality Aqualung dive jacket with i3 inflator system, an upgrade of the classic Aqualung Axiom i3, a very comfortable and functional men's BCD for divers who appreciate Aqualung quality.
For lovers of classic technology, this Aqualung buoyancy compensator is also available in the Aqualung Axiom Men version with standard inflator.
With practical i3 inflator system and decent lift volume
The i3 integrated inflator simplifies buoyancy control like never before. The i3 switch is easy to reach and operate, and ensures that perfect buoyancy can be achieved in any body position by opening all the exhaust valves simultaneously. Incidentally, the Axiom i3's exhaust valves are patented, ultra-flat E-valves, just like the previous model.
With a buoyancy of 170N in size L and over 200N in the largest size, you don't have to worry if you are out diving with extensive equipment or more lead at slightly greater depths - the Axiom i3 Jacket will bring you safely back to the surface!
Excellent fit thanks to innovative design
Just like the Axiom Men BCD, the i3 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 i3 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.
Integrated, well-secured weight pockets
The Axiom i3 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 (non-ditschable weight) 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 i3 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, 5 of them made of stainless steel, offer you more than enough space for your diving accessories.
