The Donut 13 (13kg - 29lbs), Donut 15 (15kg - 33lbs), Donut 17 (17kgs - 38lbs) with stainless steel backplate and Comfort Adjustable Harness BCD includes:
- Choice of Donut 13, 15 or Donut 17 wing with mono-tank stabiliser,
- BCD inflator hose
- Quality stainless steel back plate including laser cut 'Tecline' logo,
- Comfort adjustable harness (can be loosened and tightened like a jacket BCD), with 2 shoulder pads and SS hardware and accessories, and
- 2 x nylon tank cam bands.
As a guide the Donut 13 and 15 wings are suited to a maximum 1 x 15L cylinder, and the Dount 17 is suited to a 1 x 18L cylinder but this assumes the diver is correctly weighted.
The wings have a classic oval shape and a tough double layer construction. The set is fitted with a standard length corrugated inflator hose but a shorter length hose is provided with the BCD if you wish to swap. The dump valve is located on the lower left side in an intuitive position. The in-built mono-tank stabiliser means that a metal single tank adapter is not required tso it is lighter.
The stainless steel backplate is shiny, strong and durable with laser cut 'Tecline' logo.
The comfort adjustable harness is made from a tough yet flexible 50mm webbing and includes two shoulder pads and special webbing that when fitted allows the harness to be adjusted quickly and easily using pull down tabs. You also get 2 x shoulder D-rings, a left side D-ring for a stage / Argon bottle, rubber band keepers to ensure that webbing ends are kept neat (not a catch hazard) and a quality stainless steel buckle. The harness has plenty of webbing length, able to be customised for divers of all sizes. The harness also includes a 50mm crotch strap with both a rear D-ring and front D-ring for connecting to a DPV.
The back plate and harness may also be fitted with an optional back pad (with SMB pocket) and padded shoulder straps. Click here.
The advantage of a backplate and harness system is flexibility. This backplate and harness can also be matched to a 22SE or 17SE wing and twin tanks for technical diving – allowing you to quickly swap between single and twin tank diving modes whenever you want.
