For divers who desire a high-performance and incredibly durable BC, the back inflation BC2 extends the Atomic BC series product category and targets uncaptured market share. Consumers now have the option of purchasing an Atomic Aquatics BC, with all the exclusive features introduced in the BC1, in either jacket style or back inflation design.
Atomic started with the realization of the hard punishment the ocean inflicts on dive equipment. So, their priority for a BC was durability. The Atomic BC2 was created using exclusive engineering-grade plastics, polyurethane coated textiles, and corrosion-resistant metals. It is designed to go toe-to-toe with the ocean environment. It is simply the toughest BC in the world. Atomics' custom matte-finish fabric has a different look and feel, making this new fabric unlike any other BC. You will know it is Atomic the moment you see it. Not only does it Look tough, it's built and designed to hold up year after year. Imagine if you combined a fine leather Ferrari seat with a saddle it's like that! Strong double-laminated polyurethane textile material is designed to hold more pressure. This material will handle cycle and burst pressures to failure nearly double that of standard BC materials. After all, your BC supports your tank and regulator, so it needs to be tough. A watershed moment in BC design. Really The Atomic BC2, sheds water like a raincoat. Water does not penetrate the fabric with polyurethane coating on both sides. The exterior coating is thicker to prevent tearing, cutting or leaking. But, the big benefit the BC is virtually dry right after your dive. Yet another Atomic design exclusive. New high tenacity inner bladder material. High strength, replaceable inner bladder. Ratcheting Cam-Lok tank band. You will be amazed how easy this is to use, and how securely it holds your tank in place. The concept is like the bindings on ski boots and snowboards. The ratcheting band quickly adjusts to accommodate a variety of tank sizes and the over-center buckle locks everything tightly in place. Gone are the days of trying to figure out how to weave nylon webbing into a buckle. Just push the molded belt teeth past the ratchet and lock it down with minimal effort. No sweat.
It's quick and easy to load your weights in or out of the water like no other weight system can. Two EZ-LOK zippered weight pouches hold up to 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) each of hard or soft weights in sizes small to large and 14 lbs. (6.35 kg) each in x-large. The weight pouches glide into the weight pockets under the arms and lock into place with a reassuring Snap." A simple one-handed tug on the handle is all that is needed to release. It's the same principle that has been used for years on our EZ-LOK fin straps. BCD also has low-profile hydrodynamic trim rear non-releasable weight pockets that can hold 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) with 6 lbs. (2.72 kg) size small.
I think this is the best BC ever made! I only buy Atomic, so glad you carry it!
