Its "BC-4-Life" modular design makes it easy to customise and even easier to repair, it says, while a body-moulding backplate-and-harness system is intended to deliver maximum comfort and stability at depth.

With barely any inherent buoyancy, less weighting is said to be needed, while fast drying and compactness when packed should suit the BC well for travel.

Available in black, blue and yellow for men in S, M L and XL-XXL sizes, and white, pink, and black for women (XS-S, M and L), it costs £570.
