There are a number of benefits to diving the RECON Signature Series Sidemount System over normal doubles. Some of those benefits include . No need for a manifold, single cylinders are much easier to transport or rent than doubles, bubble checks can be performed by the individual as opposed to the buddy, easier to get back on the boat if the cylinders are removed, diver can physically see where the hoses are routed and more.
The RECON Signature Series Sidemount System consists of three parts, the wing, adjustable harness and the combination backplate / buttplate.
As one would expect, and just like our other wing systems, the RECON Series is very streamlined, well balanced and built for harsh and demanding conditions.
Features: * 360 loop * 55# lift * 25 mil inner bladder * Signature Outer Shell with 1000 Denier with 5 ounces of urethane * One size fits most * Adjustable harness, plate and pull handles. * Unique elbow placement * Ball dumps on the same side * Adjustable / removable retraction band system * No need to add trim weight (making it 4 pounds lighter)
Add Bungees and Stainless steal Cam Straps to complete the system.Bungees or Straps not included.

A buoyancy compensator is not a life jacket or substitute for proper swimming skills
CARE & MAINTANANCE
After Pool or Saltwater use a BC should be thoroughly inside and out with fresh water. Salt crystals can build up inside a BC and can cause damage to the bladder and or shell over time. You do not need to take of the OPV or elbow to flush with fresh water.
Usnig a hose, place it to the mouth piece on the inflator valve and press the manual inflation button completly to let water from the hose enter.
DO NOT FILL THE WING COMPLETLY WITH WATER - Only a small amount of water is needed.
Release the inflator valve and manualy add air via the mouth piece or LP inflator hose to fill the wing with air.
Shack the water around the inside of the wing.
Dump the water out the OPV and Manual Inflator Valve & LP Inflator connector.
