Backplate Wing Systems
Check out our range of Backplate & Wing Systems! We offer some of the best brands for the best prices!
We carry a wide range of Backplate Wing Systems for both single and double tanks back mount systems that are perfect for any diver. We also offer wings of different lift capacities, and also different types of backplates with unique securing styles too.
Originated from cave diving, these systems need to be stable, no-nonsense, and good enough to complete those dives. It became popular in other forms of diving, as this similar configuration works well for all sorts of back mount diving since. Therefore, it is what it is, with reasons behind the design and every single component.
The ‘original‘ system comes with a rigid backplate, secured by a single continuous webbing with 5 D-Rings, strictly no quick-release buckles, and a crotch strap. A wing as small as possible is then mounted on, as these divers use the Balanced Configuration concept. The wing comes with a single inflator, a single bladder, and is of a non bungee, streamlined design.
Many brands have been tweaking the systems to cater to the general crowd to make it more ‘fun’. However, some diving organisations still require the use of the ‘original’ system for their classes. Check with us on such classes, and we can guide you to the right purchase.
No, you do not use a double tank system for single tank diving, and we can talk more about that in-store.
