Zeagle recently released a new, lightweight buoyancy compensator for divers who crave gear that won’t drag them down while carrying it through airports or down a gangplank.
Called the “Covert,” the new BC “continues Zeagle’s 30-year tradition of designing rugged buoyancy compensators that stand the test of time. It’s made of durable, high-endurance materials and yet maintains an incredibly light weight despite its solid construction and full feature set.”
Covert is part of the Ranger BCD lineage, uses 1000-Denier Cordura nylon and only weighs 3.9 lbs.
“Divers who travel want to bring as much of their own gear as possible. Having a BCD that is up to 30% lighter and packs up to 50% smaller, helps achieve this,” according to the Zeagle website. “Loaded with innovation, the Covert uses an elastic mesh fabric on the bladder assembly to help streamline the profile while allowing for expansion of the bladder to a generous 32 lb lift capacity.”
Christoph Palmanshofer, brand manager for Zeagle, said:
“We’ve incorporated 30 years of philosophy and design experience into this new BCD. We wanted to make the best lightweight BCD on the market, while staying true to our roots. Covert makes it fun and easy to go diving. Throw it in your truck, travel light, but still know it’s durable and built to last.”
The Covert BC features an adjustable sternum strap, ditchable weight pockets, and an elastic mesh fabric on the bladder assembly, according to Zeagle. It can be rolled up into a size “not much larger than a folded up newspaper, making Covert easy to transport.”
