Italian manufacturer SEAC this week launched the ‘Modular’, a new rear-bladder BCD designed – as the name suggests – to be modular in nature to suit a wide variety of divers and diving.
The Modular BCD features a removable steel core, with a soft backpack and harness with removable shoulder straps. A 13.5-litre doughnut double-bladder is fitted as standard, along with two quick-release pockets for weights plus D-rings and a belly buckle made from anodised aluminium. Every part of the Modular is interchangeable and individual components and accessories can be added according to the diver’s needs.
Standard-gauge eyelets and other connectors allow the SEAC Modular to accommodate a range of different wings and backpacks. The BCD disassembles quickly, takes up little space and weighs in at just 2.9kg when dry, firmly placing it into the category of equipment suitable for travel.
