Buttplate & Bungees


The Nomad Buttplate and Bungees allows divers who wish to transform their existing TransPac harness and buoyancy compensating wing into a rig capable of sidemounting tanks. The Nomad buttplate weaves through standard 2-inch harness webbing on the waist strap and is locked tight into place using stainless steel TransPac assembly screws through slots on the backplate. BC2725 Buttplate and Bungees comes standard with our Ring bungees and tank chokers. Made in the U.S.A.
