Stainless steel regular size heavy backplate. If you want more weight on your back and less on your weight belt, consider this backplate. It is made of thicker stainless steel (6 mm) than the standard backplate and weighs approximately twice as much (5.1 kg). It is well suited for cold water diving when you are wearing multiple layers of thick undersuits. With this, heavy backplate, you can remove some weight from the weight belt, improving comfort, trim and balance.
Complete, with harness and ready to use. Only minor adjustments may be required before best fit is achieved.
The Agir stainless steel backplate is made of 3 mm stainless steel 2343/316. The backplate is surface treated by sand and glass blasting for a long lasting finish. All slots and edges are carefully evened. All holes are countersunk.
Holes in the center and on the edges enable personal configuration and provide you, the diver, with optimal trim. The bend of the plate, the angled slots and rounded corners enhance ergonomics. This is very important when wearing heavy gear, such as double steel tanks. The center recess is deeper to allow user of shorter bolts on twinsets. This avoids common problems with long bolts.
