If you already own a TransPac and want to convert it into a Nomad XT, you’ll need to lengthen the shoulder straps about two inches to make room for the wing. The Nomad wing rides beneath the harness, between the diver and the TransPac and this extra padding means the shoulders will be shorter unless you lengthen them.
It’s easy to do. Take one apart first and keep the other for an example. Make sure you have about two inches of space between the TransPac backplate and the start of the shoulder padding. That will give you enough space for the XT wing.
