*Aqua Lung does not allow shipping outside the United States
Diving in style is a thing and with the Soul, it can be your thing too. This luxurious, women's-specific BCD is a feature filled masterpiece that makes use of Aqua Lung's Wrapture Harness System. This along with a rolled neoprene collar, a shorter torso and sleek scalloped lobes make for a snug, comfy, streamlined fit. Its integrated weights are kept in place with the SureLock II system and you can rest assured that your tank stays put with the GripLock Tank Band. These are but a few of the features built in to the Soul and many more are just waiting to be discovered so, here is a closer look:
Design and Streamlining
The Soul's unique hybrid design brings together an ADV jacket and back inflation to allow the diver to rest comfortably on the surface while helping to lower drag at depth. To further cut down on air wasting drag, the Soul makes use of flat valves and features an advanced air cell with low profile lobes. The advanced air cell is also designed to fit more comfortably at the hips because of its shorter torso length. To add even more streamlining as well as gear protection, scooped pockets on the left and right lobes of the BCD are built in to keep your octopus and instruments from dangling while still leaving them clearly visible and accessible.
Wrapture Harness System (patent pending)
This feature sees patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary ultra-thin back plate working together to provide unparalleled comfort and stability. The Wrapture system was designed to stop the BCD from riding up when floating on the surface and to keep the tank close to the diver's center of gravity, effectively transferring the weight of the tank to the hips. This results to a being able to stand straight with a perfectly vertical tank behind you.
SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System (patented)
The Soul features integrated weights and keeps them locked in with the SureLock II. This system is the epitome of simplicity and its weight pouches just slide and click securely into place. SureLock II also adds an extra layer of safety to your dive by allowing you to quickly ditch your weights in an emergency with a single pull.
GripLock Tank Band
The GripLock Tank Band takes the rocket science out of attaching your cylinder to your BCD. It features easy to use, pre determined macro settings that eliminates the guess work from mounting commonly sized tanks. The GripLock system also features micro adjustment options that let you fine tune the band's grip for an even more secure fit. A safety feature is also in place to keep your fingers from getting caught in the buckle when locking in the tank.
The Soul showcases a number of smart features that ultimately contribute to the safety and enjoyment of every dive. It features a right shoulder pull dump, an adjustable, removable chest strap for comfort and ample storage in the form of large, zippered utility pockets on either side. Also provided are easy access knife attachment points that work with many Aqua Lung knives as well as three stainless steel D-rings and one plastic D-ring for easy attachment of accessories.
