The Atomic BC1 custom matte finish fabric looks and feels, unlike any other BC. The strong double-laminated polyurethane coated fabric is incredibly tough and actually SHEDS water like a raincoat. This Atomic design exclusive is the easiest tank band to use, working much like ski and snowboard bindings. Easily adapts to a wide variety of tank sizes. No more wetting a nylon web band and weaving it through a buckle. A remarkably easy-to-use design feature.
Each weight pouch holds up to 10 lbs. of hard or soft weights, smoothly glides into pockets, and locks with a reassuring "SNAP". Releases with a simple tug on the handle. Uniquely elegant and functional, enabling a diver to adjust for the most comfortable fit.
The Atomic BC1 is designed for the roughest ocean environment. Creating the toughest BC in the world requires unique materials. The BC1 is created using exclusive engineering grade plastics, polyurethane-coated fabric, and corrosion resistant metals. The unique, attractive double-laminated/coated BC1 fabric actually sheds water like a raincoat – a DRY BC. This strong fabric holds nearly double the pressure of standard BC materials. It is virtually impermeable and resists abrasion, tears and punctures. Self-cleaning, UV and stain-resistant, it also resists chemicals, mold, rot and mildew.
Another Atomic exclusive, the Ratcheting CAM-LOK Tank Band is amazingly easy to use and securely holds your tank in place. Forget trying to weave nylon webbing into a buckle. Similar to the bindings on ski boots and snowboards, the ratcheting band quickly adjusts to accommodate a variety of tank sizes. The over-center buckle locks everything tightly in place. Just push the molded belt teeth past the ratchet and lock it down with minimal effort. Custom-formulated, high strength polyurethane-coated polyester webbing won’t slip, stretch, or absorb water. Combined with the CAM-LOK tank band, the rigid molded tank pad and backpack provides ultimate tank security with CNC-Machined Stainless Steel hardware molded to the frame.

The patented EZ-LOK Weight Release System is the easiest weight system ever designed. Quickly, easily load weights while in or out of the water. Two zippered pouches each hold up to 10 pounds of hard or soft weights. The weight pouches glide into the weight pockets under the arms and lock into place with a reassuring “SNAP.” A simple one-handed tug on the handle is all it takes to release. Weight pouch is secured at the BC back to prevent shifting forward.
The Atomic design team of seven industry professionals, with 152 years of collective diving equipment experience, applied our Atelier design approach to consider every detail of the BC1 and design each component for durability, performance, and ease-of-use. Pair the BC1 with high-performance Atomic power inflation or a safe-second option for the highest level of engineering and performance you can have on a dive.
