The Patrol BC is an impressively light weight, rear inflation BC that is anatomically designed for maximum comfort and durability. The special air cell compression strap guarantees extra quick deflation and volume control. The ultralight rigid back plate with its integrated carrying handle ensures optimal stability. The Patrol also features Cressi's Flat Lock Aid integrated weight system that makes it easy to release the pockets. There are three dump valves: on the upper part of the inflator hose, on the right-hand side of the shoulder and on the lower right-hand side of the air cell. The inflator dump/valve is cable activated by pulling on the power inflator mechanism and the shoulder and lower valves have a pull cord.
Features include Flat-Lock-Aid Integrated Weight Pockets with 9kg weight releasable capacity, a light ridged back plate with soft padded back, and 1-roll-up cargo pocket. The Patrol also features plastic D-rings to help reduce weight and the shoulder and waist harness are fully adjustable to one full size up or down from the stated size. Rear inflation design with a durable 420-Denier nylon air cell with bungee cords to provide a low profile and rapid deflation of air cell. The BCD harness system uses traditional squeeze-style side-release buckles and adjustable straps on the shoulders, chest and waist for precise adjustment and fit. The Cressi Patrol provides a lift capacity from 13.3 to 22.9kg and weighs from 3 to 3.4kg depending on size.
