OMS® has developed an easy to clean BC and IQ Pack by utilizing chemically resistant Urethane coated polyester fabric (5 oz. on the front and 5 oz. on the back). Both BC and IQ Pack are ideal for SAR work where environmental contaminants may be a concern.
After 14 years the OMS ® record for product safety and reliability continues to surpass all others. World Class Record holders, deep explorers, world navy's and those who simply demand the best specify OMS ® banded and non-banded BC's. All OMS® BC's incorporate (4) slots located in the non-inflated section of the BC. Cam bands can be passed through the integral webbing of the IQ Pack or through the slots on the Stainless Steel or Aluminum Backplates, inserted into the BC slots and finally placed over the single cylinder making any OMS® Backplate/Harness/BC system(s) very light and travel friendly. For those preferring super stability, the ever-popular Stainless Steel Single Cylinder Adapter (BCA-290K), can be used with either the IQ Pack or the Stainless Steel Backplate Harness System.
A few words about materials: OMS ® uses 1000 denier Cordura backed with 8.0 oz of Urethane for superior abrasion and puncture resistance on all BC's. Most competitors cheapen their BC's; by using little or no urethane backing. This leaves their product vulernable to punctures and abrasion. Housed inside our Cordura cover is a virgin urethane bladder (2 bladders on the dual bladder BC).
