The Nomad sidemount system has been incredibly popular and is becoming a great hit not just with sidemount divers but also Rebreather divers who wish to sidemount their bailout bottles. The Nomad wing had 50 pounds of lift but we discovered that after streamlining the air cell some divers were not getting the full 50 pounds of lift. As always we listen and we have worked to improve the product. We have added a side panel to the Nomad wing, which has increased the lift to 60 pounds or 27 kilograms. The new 60 pound model is shipping today!
The Nomad has taken on a life of its own and many divers are trying out sidemounting. To help divers configure their Nomad we have launched a series of sidemount questions on our Solution Finder. The Solution Finder is complete with informative video footage and will give you ideas on how to rig your light, route hoses and regs and where to store accessories.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us, we’re always happy to help!
