Aqualung Introduces new BCD: Pro HD

Aqualung is at it again. They have just released a new BCD, the PRO HD. This BCD will be taking the place of the PRO LT which we use in our rentals and love. So even though we are sad to see the PRO LT leave, the PRO HD is very similar but with some great upgrades we are excited to try out.

The major changes that we see from the PRO LT to the PRO HD is that the PRO HD is now made of ResisteK material that holds up to the rigors of salt and chlorine while retaining its good looks. If you are tough on your gear, this would be the BC for you. Another upgrade are the 5 stainless steel rings for accessories. I find these to be a better shape, size and placement.

The PRO HD features the Aqualung SureLock Weight System with additional tank trim pockets so no need for uncomfortable weight belts. The BC comes with accessory pockets with zippers as well as the scooped pockets for easy gauge/computer/octo storage. It has grommets for fixing a small BC knife to it (we recommend the Squeeze knife by Aqualung). Another great feature is the carrying handle on the backpack along with the traction pad to reduce tank slippage.

It comes in 6 sizes (XS-XL) and one color (black/charcoal/blue). We have these in stock now, so stop by the store to try one on today!

New Product: Aqualung Loose Fit Rashguards

 

Loose Fit Rashguards

Yet another new product this month! We love rashguards, I mean who doesn’t. They are great for sun protection, abrasions from critters or coral and you can use them as an undergarment to easily slip your wetsuit over. We know that some people are not a fan of tight fitting clothing, so we jumped on the opportunity to carry the Loose Fit Rashguards. These come in both men and women’s sizes along with short and long sleeves. These are great for sun protection with their SPF 50 rating and are made up of 80% nylon and 20% spandex. These have a loose fit and low comfortable collar.

Mens Sizes: SM, MD, LG, XL, XXL  Colors: Black & Blue

Women’s Sizes: SM, MD, LG, XL   Color: Black & Purple

Short-Sleeve: $39

Long-Sleeve: $44
