SCUBAPRO announce Hydros X BCD

Published

on

Hydros X – A breakthrough in design and comfort…

The Hydros X is the world’s first front-adjustable BCD to offer a fully injection moulded Monprene® thermoplastic shoulders and back pad. This unique feature allows the shoulders to conform to your body like a tailored fit, creating superior comfort.

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. 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. Its flat-buckled quick-release integrated weight system and rear trim weight pockets work together to offer a more comfortable and balanced ride during your dive. The two big zippered cargo pockets offer great gear-carrying capacity and are easily accessible even when the weight pouches are fully loaded. 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.

Features

  • Hydros X is based on the same modular Monprene® shoulders and back pad design made popular by the Hydros Pro back-inflation BCD.
  • EndurTex high-tenacity 420 nylon fabric bladder is lightweight yet extremely durable.
  • Monprene® thermoplastic shoulders and back pad are extremely resistant to UV, chemicals and abrasion, plus don’t absorb water to minimize drying time.
  • Rotating quick-release shoulder buckles allow you to route your shoulder straps to optimise fit.
  • Super Cinch tank buckle system locks the tank in solid for maximum stability at depth.
  • Integrated front weight system is based on the same Monprene® pockets found on the Hydros Pro.
  • Two rear trim pouches help create a comfortable swimming position.
  • Two big zippered cargo pockets offer great gear-carrying capacity and are easily accessible even when the weight pouches are fully loaded.
  • Two stainless steel D-rings provide clip-on points for additional gear.
  • Includes Multi-Mount Accessory Matrix with multiple D-rings and mounting points that easily attach various dive accessories.
  • With Balanced Power Inflator.

Options available:

  • 9 colour Kits for personalisation (Army Green, Black, White, Blue, Turquoise, Orange, Yellow, Pink, and Purple).

Price:

  • RRP £699

Save Our Seas Foundation announce Ocean Storytelling Photography Grant

Published

on

Stories spark the imagination and nurture ideas. They are, without doubt, our most powerful form of communicating and connecting, both with each other and with the world around us.
The Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) have a strong history of supporting marine conservation and education projects and believe that to truly translate knowledge into effective, meaningful change we must communicate through engaging stories. An inspiring or compelling story can spur positive action in ways that no presentation of facts can.

SOSF are delighted to introduce their new emerging Ocean Storyteller Grants, which will focus on photography in its inaugural year. The photography grant is led by our own director of storytelling and National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak, in collaboration with Kathy Moran and Jennifer Samuel from National Geographic.

While they are looking specifically for photographers who can tell conservation stories about our oceans, the call is not limited to underwater photography. Applicants should think broadly – story topics can range from the animals themselves to fisheries or the communities whose lives are intertwined with marine life. Four successful grantees will each receive a fully funded assignment to shoot a conservation photo story on location (including day rate and travel), under the direct mentorship of the Ocean Storytelling Grant team.
