XDEEP Weight Pockets
This is the go-to system for rigging weights to your XDEEP wing.
The XDEEP weight pockets slide onto your webbing and bolt into the backplate making it really comfy and stable. The weights themselves live in pouches which then slide into the system, secured with a buckle so ditching them super fast and easy.
The Honest Truth
I hate weight belts… with a passion! The XDEEP weight pockets allow me to have integrated weights that are dead easy to drop if needed. Putting the weight pouches in while you’re kitting up is a dream – but I’m not gonna lie… trying to do it in the water is an absolute nightmare! Get your buddy to help!
SMALL SIZE: 2x2kg
The small size XDEEP weight pockets let you can carry up to 4 kg of weight, perfect for warm water diving.
MEDIUM SIZE: 2x3kg
The medium size XDEEP weight pockets let you can carry up to 6 kg of weight, and their construction makes them very compact.
LARGE SIZE: 2x6kg
The large size XDEEP weight pockets allow you to carry up to 12 kg of weight.
If you’re travelling to warmer waters where you’ll need less weight, the adjustment system lets you reduce the capacity so you don’t have to change pockets for your dive trip.
Easy and safe carrying
In the XDEEP weight pockets, the weight is carried in an inner pouch equipped with a strong handle.
Such a solution makes it easier to carry and manipulate the weight and significantly improves safety.
You can simply take the weight from the pocket one at a time and pass it to the boat crew to make it easier to get on the boat, without the risk of dropping the weight.
Securely mounted but easily droppable
The XDEEP weight pockets are equipped with very strong and durable ITW NEXUS® buckles, made of polyacetal – very durable material resistant to salty water and extreme temperatures.
Their durability and the “click” sound they make at fastening gives you the certainty that your weight is mounted safely.
It is easy to drop the weight in an emergency because of the large size of the buckle.
Protection against lead compounds
Solid lead weights are coated with lead oxide – a carcinogenic compound which has a tendency to accumulate in the human body.
When you handle it after the dive with bare hands, the particles of lead would stick to your skin. When you carry uncovered solid weights in your car, the carcinogenic lead oxide can penetrate your environment.
The internal holders of XDEEP weight pockets provide great protection against lead oxide while using and carrying the weight.
Solid and stable mounting
There is probably nothing worse in diving than an unstable weight which moves and bumps your body during the scuba dive.
The XDEEP weight pockets are mounted on the waist strap of the harness and screwed down to the backplate.
This ensures that nothing moves to the sides and the weight remains in its place all dive long, even when you roll to the side or stay upside down.
Reinforced front edge
The front part of the pocket features a rigid strap ensuring that the system is always open.
It may seem unimportant, but it makes putting the weight in a lot easier, especially when you have to do it during training dives or when you are wearing very thick gloves on your hands for cold water diving.
