About Scubapro HYDROS X (Ladies)
The Hydros X is the world’s first front-adjustable BCD to offer a fully injection molded Monprene thermoplastic harness. This unique feature allows you to tailor the harness shape to perfectly fit your torso and 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 air cell and harness are modular and detachable. 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, every component on the Hydros X is 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 when cruising the depths. 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-Rings and mounting points that easily attach various dive accessories.
Hydros X is based on the same modular Monprene harness and backpack design popularized by the Hydros Pro back-inflation BCD. EndurTex high-tenacity 420 nylon fabric bladder is lightweight yet extremely durable. Monprene thermoplastic harness is extremely resistant to UV, chemicals and abrasion, plus it doesn’t absorb water to minimize drying time. Rotating squeeze-style quick-release shoulder buckles allow you to route your shoulder straps to optimize 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. Weight integrated with a releasable weight capacity of 24 lbs. (11 kg) and 8 lbs. (3.6 kg) non-releasable capacity. The BCD’s buoyant lift ranges is from 29.2 lbs. to 44.9 lbs. (13.25 kg to 20.4 kg) depending on the BC size.
Buoyancy control is facilitated with the Scubapro Balanced Inflator mechanism, right shoulder and left bottom overpressure relief/dump valves with pull cords. Scubapro’s Balanced Power Inflator provides a high inflation speed, especially at depth. Inflator has different shaped inflation and purge buttons for easy use even in extremely low light or murky water conditions. Inflator is also equipped with a rapid pull dump mechanism with cable pull for easy deflation of the air bladder. Included with the inflator is a 3/8″ threaded low-pressure hose for attachment to the first stage regulator. BCD comes with an owner’s manual.
