Taking side mount diving to its next level, the evolved Nomad LT performs at the top of its class. The extremely durable exterior SuperFabric material is resistant to the elements of diving, whether diving on a quiet reef, pushing deep into a cave system, or scooting through a deck opening on a wreck dive. With the inflator and exhaust valves placed at the front/inside of the wing and not on the exterior, the valves are safe and free from exposure.
With 22 lbs (9.9 kg) of lift and a low profile design, the Nomad LT is designed to carry twin aluminum 80 cylinders with a wetsuit or Faber steel 85s when wearing a drysuit (essentially, it can support a maximum of 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) of additional weight worn for trim or buoyancy purposes). With additional lift typically needed toward the lower back when sidemounting, the combination of shape and contour of the bladder create this lift achieving the optimum trim.
An integrated deluxe-style webbing harness using pivot rings on the shoulders provides a comfortable and customizable fit for nearly any size diver. The SuperFabric shoulder straps provide added durability from abrasions along with a channel on the left shoulder strap for the exhaust valve’s pull dump cord allowing for easy access. The cross-chest strap and a 2-inch (5 cm) padded crotch strap holds the harness securely in place, preventing unwanted shifting or movement of the harness no matter what type of diving you’re doing.
With the valves now on the front/inside of the wing, the corrugated inflator hose routes from the bottom/right of the wing up the diver’s side and secures to the chest, shoulder strap D-ring with a bungee loop for easy access. A second dump valve is located at the bottom, left corner of the wing. With the versatility of the Nomad LT and the ability to customize to your preference, the corrugated inflator hose and left-side dump valve can be used on either side of the wing by simply unscrewing each valve and swapping positions. With a third dump valve located at the top/inside of the wing with a pull cord routed down the left shoulder strap, there are multiple, easy access points to vent air from the wing with either hand.
Our exclusive ring bungee and tank neck choker system, included, provide a secure and efficient method for mounting sidemount cylinders to the Nomad LT. The ring bungee can be lengthened or shortened simply by moving the connection point of the bungee on the daisy chain loops located on the inside of the Nomad LT. The butt plate, made of reinforced nylon to provide the proper amount of rigidity to hold tanks in position and eliminate sag along with two stainless steel handles, provides the lower attachment point for cylinders.
