Dive Rite XT TransPac Harnesses


Exceptionally rugged, yet beautifully streamlined, the TransPac XT redefines expectations about function and comfort in scuba harnesses. Our radically updated TransPac® XT now provides a true mountaineer backpack design with an integrated hip belt, molded foam lumbar support and ergonomic shoulder pads. Available in sizes XS-XXL with easy customization options at the shoulder and waist plate, the TransPac XT is designed to fit any size diver, including children.

The TransPac XT evenly balances weight across the hips and back distributing the weight of single or double tanks. The wrap-around hip belt made of dual density foam, snugly hugs the lower back giving critical support and cushioning. Narrow, double-foam shoulder pads fit perfectly beneath the two-inch shoulder webbing to give chafe-free comfort. The high-tech, molded foam lumbar pad is contoured in all the right places with mesh airflow channels for instant draining topside and doubles as a lift-bag sleeve with an integrated pocket. Chest-support strap provides ultimate load distribution and when used with the removable, 1.5-inch crotch strap provides outstanding stability and comfort in the water. Transition plates at the shoulders allow for quick addition/deletion of hardware and finite adjustments. Dual cam straps are positioned to give plenty of head room for easy maneuvering in the water.

Neutrally buoyant, the TransPac XT weighs less than 5lbs (2.29kg) and packs flat for travel. Optional weight pockets slide easily onto the waist belt. Designed for use with any XT or EXP wing in the Dive Rite line. Made in the U.S.A.

Proper Sizing on the Transpac® XT Depends on Several Factors
There are three primary components to the Transpac XT; the backplate, shoulder pads, and
sideplates with adjustment straps. The most critical piece for proper sizing is the backplate,
which is available in three sizes.


The standard backplate is 17" (43 cm) long from the bottom of the waist belt to the top of the
plate. The waist area is 24" (60 cm) long from end-to-end of the hip pads and the length of the
actual waist webbing is 72" (182 cm) total. The standard plate is used on all men's sizes from
large to XXL. The plate can be easily identified with two sets of 3 grommets for mounting
doubles or aircells.

The medium backplate is 15" (38 cm) long from the bottom of the waist belt to the top of the
plate. The waist area is 24" (60 cm) long from end-to-end of the hip pads and the length of
actual waist webbing is 72" (182 cm) total. This backplate is used on standard women's
sizes from medium to XL. The medium backplate has two sets of 2 grommets for mounting
doubles or aircells.

The petite backplate is 15" (38 cm) long from the bottom of the waist belt to the top of the
plate. The waist area is 20" (50 cm) long from end-to-end of the hip pads and the length of
actual waist webbing is 60" (152 cm)total. This plate is used for women's petite sizes XS and


Shoulder Pads

The shoulder pad length determines the size of the harness because it terminates on the
chest at the pivot point for the chest strap and sideplate straps. T-shirt size is normally a good
indicator of what size shoulder pad is needed for an optimal fit. A size change on the shoulder
pads is two inches (5 cm) from size to size.

For men, shoulder pads should terminate on the chest around the nipple line. If you are in
between sizes, it's easy to adjust the shoulder pads by moving them forward one inch (2.5 cm)
(directions are in the manual). If you need to adjust it 2 inches (5 cm) or more you should
move up a size. Remember, moving up a size is only changing the shoulder pad length.


For women the shoulder pad should terminate just above the bust line for a proper fit.


Sideplates with Adjustment Strap

The sideplate is on the waist belt and its positioning is very important for fit and comfort. Too
far forward and you lose the hip support of the backplate, too far back and you may not have
enough adjustment strap and the harness may feel too small. The average fit for the
sideplates is to have them covered by your arms when they are by your side. This is
approximately 2" (5 cm) behind the belt loop on the hip pads. Larger waist lines may need to
shift this forward but never move it forward of where your arms are when by your side.


All harnesses leave the factory adjusted for average fit. You may need to do some
adjustments to get the most comfort and stability.
