OMS IQ Pack BC Package–Quality without compromise!

The OMS IQ Pak is without question the hard-core tech divers first choice! This BCD is an incredibly rugged back mounted weight integrated modular system that offers you an incredible variety of choices to fit your precise diving needs. Choose from 45lb, single 100lb, or dual 100lb bladders. Pick between Aluminum or Stainless Steel Backplate.

The IQ pack is OMS’s most innovative and comfortable BCD harness system. It incorporates the best of both hard and soft back plate systems. Designed as a soft plate harness, you can convert it to a hard plate system by sliding either an aluminum or stainless steel back plate in behind the back pad for the extra support/weight found only in a hard back plate system. It has a pull dump tunnel on each shoulder pad, adjustable quick release chest strap, 2 adjustable shoulder D rings, 2 adjustable waist D rings, 2  1 inch butt D rings, a 1 inch quick release crotch strap with a sewn in Diver Propulsion Vehicle ring and a stainless steel buckle. It is compatible with all OMS  bladders and accessories and as well as many others.

The new IQ Pack incorporates the “soft/hard” concept (the optional backplate slides in behind the back pad), form fit, easy on/off has been re-engineered to provide a more streamline appearance and fit. There are now (2) butt mounted D-Rings, (3) D-Rings per side, (1) adjustable D-Ring on each side of the harness chest area (additional optional D-Rings can be added) and (2) D-Rings located at the oblique (waist) area. 

Additionally, an optional single cylinder Cam Band system has been integrated into the back of the IQ Allowing for very lightweight travel. Image

OMS Single Bladder BC 45 lb. lift
The 45 lb single bladder retraction band wing uses 1000 denier Cordura nylon backed by 5 to 6.0 oz. of Urethane to prevent abrasion and to increase puncture resistance. This is superior to most competitors who use little or no urethane backing. This leaves their products far more susceptible to punctures and abrasions. Housed inside the nylon cover is a 210 Denier Nylon bladder backed with 3.8 oz. of Urethane. 

The unique OMS elastomeric bands  increase the versatility of the bladder. They help eliminate air shift by evenly compressing the bladders which prevents a massive air shift that can occure on non banded bladders. They reduce drag and snag potential by retracting the bladder to a width less than the divers shoulders. Also, by adding or removing bands in different parts of the bladder, the diver can more easily adjust A. lateral trim to compensate for stage bottles, cameras, etc and/or B. Horizontal trim e.g. head up, down or level.  It has a pull dump located on the diver’s lower left and an inflator hose exiting the center or slightly off center of the BC Diver’s side. It also has 4 cam band slots located in the non inflated section for mounting single cylinders. 

It is compatible with all OMS as well as many other harness systems utilizing 11 inch center mounting holes. Quality without compromise!

OMS Dive Slate
Why buy a dive slate made with break prone materials like cheap plastic pencils, plastic swivel snaps, thin plastic pages and UV susceptible latex tubing when you can purchase the OMS dive slate

The 5″ long x 3.5″ wide slate is manufactured from virgin, break resistant heavy duty .035″ thick LDPE, contains (6) pages and a heavy duty swivel snap with .27″ O.D. Silicone tubing affixed to a solid Graphite Pencil. Clearly superior in every respect.

I believe in protecting our oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as their aquatic life. I respect the work of conservation groups such as Save the Sharks, Save the Sea Turtles and Save our Wrecks. I believe that the use of plastic bags/bottled water should be discouraged as plastic finds its way to the ocean. I also support Diving for the Disabled and Swimming for the Disabled. As a PADI-certified diver, my interest in diving led to the opening in July 2008 of kirkscubagear, my online business. My site offers more than 2,000 products, including freediving, swimming and outdoor equipment. My continuing goal is to encourage diving and offer customers a shopping alternative for the purchase of scuba gear.
