SCUBAPRO Sunday – Hydro’s X BCD

The Hydro’s X is the first front-adjustable BCD to offer a fully injection molded Monprene® thermoplastic shoulders and back pad. This unique feature allows the shoulders to conform to your body like a tailored fit. Its flat-buckled quick-release integrated weight system and rear trim weight pockets work together to offer a more comfortable and balanced ride when diving. Add the full-sized backpack and stainless-steel Super Cinch tank band, and you also get excellent stability both on the surface and at depth. Two rear trim pouches help create a comfortable swimming position. The Hydro’s X has matched the patented injection-molded gel harness of the Hydro’s Pro but with a more traditional style wrap-around air cell with zippered cargo pockets on each side.

Again, like the SCUBAPRO Hydro’s Pro, this is a modular design, and several of its components are detachable and can be individually replaced, adding to the jacket’s longevity. The Monprene design makes it a lot easier to clean mud or any other contaminates off; it is also highly resistant to UV, chemicals, and abrasion, plus it doesn’t absorb water to help minimize drying time, making it ideal for Public Safety divers.

The weight pockets are molded to the outside of the pockets, making adding or removing weights a lot easier. The two big, zippered cargo pockets offer great gear-carrying capacity and are easily accessible even when the weight pouches are fully loaded. You can also add different accessories to the weight pockets, including your knife, lights, or our ninja pocket that rolls up out of the way when not in use.

Rotating quick-release shoulder buckles allow you to route your shoulder straps to optimize fit in any thickness of a wetsuit or drysuit. The bladder, made out of EndurTex high-tenacity nylon fabric, is extremely lightweight and durable while offering generous lift capacity, aided by lower back bellows. In the event of damage, several components on the Hydros X are detachable and easily replaceable. Two stainless steel D-rings provide clip-on points for additional gear. In addition, the Hydros X features a Multi-Mount Accessory Matrix with multiple D-Ring and mounting points that easily attach various dive accessories.
