The LITEHAWK is the ultimate back-flotation travel BC. Its lightweight, low-profile design and soft, flexible backpack lays flat and compact for packing. The adjustable belt-style waist strap with nylon buckle can be cinched up snug, and the quick-release rotating shoulder buckles that let you route the straps under your arms, plus the two-position sternum strap, hug your body like the BC was custom-made for you.

But you can't fully appreciate the LITEHAWK until you get it in the water. With the tank secured by a lower primary tank band, an upper velcro support strap and an adjustable yoke loop, the entire system locks in, ensuring a controlled, stable ride at depth. The LITEHAWK is back-inflated and elastic cords rein in the air cell when partially inflated and help control deflation.

The BC carries no inherent buoyancy so only minimal ballast weight is required. Consequently, the two non-ditching pockets can be used to carry accessories. Optional quick-release weight pockets are also available, and four aluminum D-rings provide convenient clip-on points for additional gear.
