Halcyon Adventure Single Tank MC System with Carbon Fiber Backplate
The new Halcyon Adventurer Wing system, is a single tank BC based around the popular Eclipse wing and a carbon fiber backplate in Halcyon's traditional design. The system attaches to a single cylinder with use of the (inclusive) Halcyon Single Tank Adapter and includes a 20Lbs, 30Lbs or 40Lbs Eclipse wings, the carbon fiber backplate complete with standard single loop harness and all stainless wear, an MC Storage Pack for backplate, Single Tank Adapter with cam bands and an integrated two-pocket weight system.
The Halcyon Eclipse Wing is a donut shaped back-mounted Buoyancy Compensator (BC) allowing divers to enjoy perfect horizontal trim underwater. It is suitable for single tank divers from any agency and at all levels. It's been our choice wing for try dives and beginner through advanced recreational diving courses for many years.
The low drag design of the wing spreads the air in a balanced way on back of the diver, keeping the BC part of the compensator out of the way and offering unprecedented streamlining during a dive. The wing has a narrow elliptic shape which more or less matches the divers width.
There are no air-inflated side panels or pockets as on traditional 'jacket type' BC's, avoiding a "legs down" position often caused by air to the side and front of the diver. There are no restrictions on the diver's chest - making it extremely comfortable, with no chest compression, also allowing one size to fit all with no hassle.
Advantages of a wing system over a "jacket type" BC are numerous. The Halcyon system depends on a one piece webbing harness looped through a sturdy aluminum or stainless steel backplate that should last many life times. Once donned, a webbing crotch strap can be utilized to keep the whole system in place with minimum movement.
This clutter-free system is easily adjustable to suit any size, any type of diving and any thickness of suit/undersuit a diver may be using. It is ideal for men, women and young divers alike and the harness, stainless hardware and backpack can easily be moved to a doubles wing in the future.
