With the Hydros, XDeep managed to eliminate dead zones which trap air during a dive and can have a big impact on drag and buoyancy. The Hydros gives you great access to your valves thanks to a careful top wing design. Whether you are an experienced technical diver or new to the experience, you will be safe and secure and will achieve perfect and flat trim without a worry.

For new technical divers this is often the skill they find the hardest to achieve, and finding a perfect and flat trim can still be a pain for experienced divers. As a technical diver you don’t want your equipment to be something you compensate for, you want it to help you. This is exactly what the Hydros does, it has been designed to ensure that the buoyancy of the wing perfectly matches the centre of gravity of the gas in your twinset. This means that despite any change in the inflation level of the wing or the remaining cylinder pressure, the system trim will not change during a dive.

The Hydros also makes sure you can react to a problem as soon as you notice one, especially when it comes to your valves. The last thing you want or need is a flap of a wing slowing down your response. XDeep reduced the volume of the wing in the valve area and through the area you want to route your hoses with the Hydros. This means your shutdowns and valve management is vastly improved, making it easier to configure and clean and tidy hose routing.

The Hydros also has you covered at the end of your dive. The Hydros Wing System has been designed so that the majority of the wing remains in the water while you are at the surface. This means that the BCD is using much more of its own natural buoyancy, holding you high out of the water and keeping your head away from waves. So the next time you’re waiting for pickup you will be much more comfortable with a Hydros BCD.

With the Hydros there are two different choices of backplate: a stainless steel backplate or an aluminium backplate. The choice between the two mainly comes down to what you are looking for as a diver. The steel backplate weighs almost 2kg more than the aluminium version but does offer more longevity. The heavier steel is durable and long lasting, giving your back the support it needs guaranteed. However, the increased weight makes it more difficult to travel with. The aluminium backplate on the other hand is a lot lighter, but does sacrifice a small amount of durability because of this. Made from super strong aluminium, it will still survive years of rigorous diving, but not as much as the stronger stainless steel. It is easier to travel with however and will keep your baggage costs down at the airport.
