So where is your octopus during the dive? Is it trailing along in the water behind you? Can you find it in an emergency? Can you find it at all?
XS Scuba has addressed that problem by developing the AltAir. The AltAir utilizes the same patented quick-release buckles used on today's most modern weight integrated BC's.
Snap the AltAir in place to the BC and forget about it. If you need it, then it will be there...everytime. Even after a giant stride from a 20' tuna tower...it's still there.
Yet, just grab and pull the AltAir, that's all that is needed to release the patented X-Lock buckle.
