We’ve just launched a weighting system for Nomad sidemount divers. The Nomad Weight Plate attaches to the back of the rig in the existing grommets. We’ve had some inquires about the spacing of the grommets on the plate not lining up with the Nomad. This is intentional. We added an extra 1/2-inch of spacing to the weight plate so that once it is filled with weight, it will align with the grommets on the rig. The extra 1/2-inch accounts for the thickness of the plate once loaded.
Scott and I have been diving prototypes since late fall. Neither of us can tell you’re wearing the plate – it’s that well conformed to the rig. Keep in mind it is to be used when sidemounting, not backmount.
