OCEANIC Hera - £345
With DUIs patented Torso Height Adjustment, this is the latest womens BC from the US manufacturer Oceanic. It is a hybrid combined-bladder design said to offer the advantages of both a back-flotation BC under water and a conventional BC at the surface. Contoured over the hip for a better fit, it has a Custom Fit harness with multi-position shoulder straps and is made from Bioflex, a fabric that stretches and flexes. Its quick-release integrated-weight system takes 4.5kg of lead each side, with pockets angled downwards to make self-loading easier. It also has trim weight pockets at the rear that will take 2kg each, intended to improve diver attitude in the water when using a lightweight tank.
