Our large droppable weight pockets are enough big to fit even 6 kg of weight. Large capacity makes it perfect for cold water dives where dry suit and thick undergarment or thick wet suit require a significant amount of weight. If you need less weight in warm waters the adjustment system lets you to reduce the capacity so you don?t have to change the pockets for your dive trip.
In XDEEP weight pockets, the weight is carried in the inner holder equipped with a strong handle. Such a solution makes it easier to carry and manipulate the weight and significantly improves the safety. You can simply take out the weight from the pocket at one time and pass it to the boat crew to make it easier to get on the boat, without the risk of dropping the weight.
The accidental loss of weight during the dive can lead to accident. The XDEEP weight pockets are equipped with very strong and durable ITW NEXUS buckles, made of polyacetal very durable material resistant to salty water and extreme temperatures. Their durability and the “click” sound they make at fastening gives you the certainty that your weight is mounted safely. It is easy to drop the weight in an emergency because of the large size of the buckle.
Lead solid belt weights are coated with lead oxide carcinogenic compound which has a tendency to accumulate in the human body. When you handle it after the dive with bare hands, the particles of lead would stick to your skin. When you carry uncovered solid weights in your car, the carcinogenic lead oxide can penetrate your environment. The internal holders of XDEEP pockets provide great protection against lead oxide while using and carrying the weight.
There is probably nothing worse in diving than the unstable weight which moves and bumps your body during the scuba dive. The XDEEP weight pockets are mounted on the waist strap of the harness and screwed down to the backplate. This ensures that nothing moves to the sides and the weight remains in its place all dive long, even when you roll to the side or stay upside down.
In the front part of the pocket, there is a rigid strap with a pocket which is always open. It may seem unimportant but it makes putting the weight in a lot easier, especially when you have to do it during training dives or when you are wearing very thick gloves on your hands for cold water diving.
