The Halcyon Eclipse Wing is super comfy, especially with the specially designed flared backplate – it doesn’t dig in at all.

Do I Need a Stainless or Ali Backplate?

The choice between an aluminium or stainless steel backplate comes down to where you think you’ll be using your wing the most.

If you want to travel with your wing, then aluminium is a great choice as it makes your rig about 2kg lighter than stainless.

BUT, in the water your rig will actually be about 1kg more buoyant compared to a setup with a stainless backplate. This means you’ll need more lead to compensate. There is a silver lining to this though, you can now place this extra weight anywhere you like to help with your trim.

If you’re primarily diving dry suit in the UK, we recommend the stainless option – we’re already carrying enough lead!

And if you’ve never dived a wing before, you’ll find you need way less weight diving with any kind of wing with a backplate compared to your traditional jacket style BCD!

Which Wing Size Do I Need?

The appropriate Halcyon Eclipse wing size depends on the diver’s size, equipment configuration, and the amount of lead being used. However, this gives you some idea of which is best for you.

  • 20lbs buoyancy: The Halcyon Eclipse 20 wing is ideal for warm water diving with minimal gear. It’s travel-friendly and works best with aluminum 80 tanks, for those using thin wetsuits or shorties. I usually recommend this for smaller divers and kids.
  • 30lbs buoyancy: The Halcyon Eclipse 30 wing is the standard choice for recreational diving. It provides adequate lift for single tank setups, particularly with aluminum 80 tanks, and balances versatility and comfort for various diving environments.
  • 40lbs buoyancy: The Halcyon Eclipse 40 wing is designed for cold water diving or when using thicker wetsuits or drysuits. It provides the extra lift needed for steel tanks, making it ideal for divers with additional gear especially if using a fully integrated weight system in drysuits.
NOTES FROM HALCYON ABOUT THEIR ECLIPSE WING

The Halcyon Eclipse Wing system is establishing a new standard for single cylinder recreational diving, while creating unprecedented streamlining, and eliminating the many unnecessary “features” that clutter traditional buoyancy compensators.

The Eclipse has a long, narrow profile that supports the diver’s single tank along their entire length, preventing unnecessary drag, and minimizing in-water effort. Meanwhile, the infinitely adjustable harness prevents the frustrating lack of control found with typical buoyancy compensators.

This added stability reduces drag by encouraging a streamlined position — these changes result in less effort and more diving fun.
