Dive Rite Releases Sidemount BCD For Ocean Diving (w/video)

(DiverWire) Dive Rite has just launched the Nomad LT Bluewater, a sister product to the Nomad LT Cave BCD that launched last fall. Designed for sidemount diving in open bodies of water, the Nomad LT Bluewater gives the diver access to inflation and dump valves when in a vertical position, such as hanging on a down line or ascending up a wall.

The Nomad LT Cave model has inflation positioned for dumping in a prone position, as required in an overhead environment.

The Nomad LT family is a lightweight, minimalistic rig designed for warm water sidemount style diving with aluminum 80 tanks. Made in the U.S.A., its exceptional design creates the first sidemount rig of its kind that is simple to set up and configure with an all-in-one webbing harness and wing combo.

Pivot points at the chest provide comfort and stainless steel slides at the waist provide a custom fit. Watch Dive Rite’s Nomad LT Fitting Video to learn how to easily get a custom fit.

Weighing only 5.4 lbs (2.5kg), the Nomad LT is ideal for travel and packs flat in a suitcase.
