Atomic started with the realization of the hard punishment the ocean inflicts on dive equipment. So, their priority for a BC was durability. The Atomic BC2 was created using exclusive engineering-grade plastics, polyurethane coated textiles, and corrosion-resistant metals. It is designed to go toe-to-toe with the ocean environment. It is simply the toughest BC in the world. Atomics' custom matte-finish fabric has a different look and feel, making this new fabric unlike any other BC. You will know it is Atomic the moment you see it. Not only does it Look tough, it's built and designed to hold up year after year. Imagine if you combined a fine leather Ferrari seat with a saddle it's like that! Strong double-laminated polyurethane textile material is designed to hold more pressure. This material will handle cycle and burst pressures to failure nearly double that of standard BC materials. After all, your BC supports your tank and regulator, so it needs to be tough. A watershed moment in BC design. Really The Atomic BC2, sheds water like a raincoat. Water does not penetrate the fabric with polyurethane coating on both sides. The exterior coating is thicker to prevent tearing, cutting or leaking. But, the big benefit the BC is virtually dry right after your dive. Yet another Atomic design exclusive. New high tenacity inner bladder material. High strength, replaceable inner bladder. Ratcheting Cam-Lok tank band. You will be amazed how easy this is to use, and how securely it holds your tank in place. The concept is like the bindings on ski boots and snowboards.

Gone are the days of trying to figure out how to weave nylon webbing into a buckle. Just push the molded belt teeth past the ratchet and lock it down with minimal effort. No sweat.

(2.72 kg) size small.
