The 2nd Generation Nomad LS continues to be one of the most versatile sidemount systems on the market. Its unique design makes it capable of easily handling steel or aluminum cylinders. Utilizing a diamond shaped bladder with zero lift baffles, the Nomad LS allows the diver to trim out in a horizontal position with minimum adjustment. 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.


Diamond shaped bladder with zero lift baffles force lift to the hips where it is needed the most.

Deluxe style harness provides a customizable and comfortable fit for nearly any size diver. The harness can be easily replaced. The waistband is designed to sit lower on the diver’s hips, optimal for trimming out cylinders attached to the waist.

Inflator routes from the bottom for optimum hose routing while a shoulder OPV pull allows gas venting from a vertical orientation.

Adjustable Bungee System allows the diver to choose between ring, loop, or independent bungees. The laser cut adjustment plate allows for infinite adjustment to fine tune bungee length.

Low-Profile buttplate is easily removed using stainless slides without the need to un-weave the harness.

Built in weight system using the 2” crotch strap which continues up the back to add support. Block weights can be directly attached, while bag weight can be added using a Travel Weight Pocket.

Accessorize and customize your Nomad LS


Add Titanium Sliding D-Rings to the waist for use with AL cylinders. D-ring can be re-positioned on the dive to adjust for the buoyancy change of the cylinder.

Remove the buttplate when not needed and add a set of Titanium Drop D-Rings to hang accessories

Perfect when diving in a wetsuit, add a sidemount butt pocket to carry tools such as spools or wet notes.
