Use the inflator in complete comfort 

The STEALTH BCD follows the DIR philosophy, i.e. it aims at optimising the functionality and at facilitating the use. For this reason, the STEALTH 18 and 20-liter inflator connection is placed centrally in the higher part of the bladder with a tube inclination towards left, to save space. In the 16-lter STEALTH, the connection is slightly moved to the left, but it does not cause noticeable changes. An OR, that you can place in the left harness suspender, supports the corrugated. This inflator specific position allows its immediate localization and facilitates its use. The inflator included in the standard equipment of this scuba BCD is with simple curve connection and 16’’ spiral corrugated (40 cm). It has a piston control, a nickel-plated brass inner mechanism and derlin non-slip buttons.
