Halcyon Adventurer+ BC System
The adjustable Halcyon Adventurer Plus wing system is a light-weight single tank BC based around the Traveler Pro version of the popular Eclipse wing and a special design Carbon Fiber backplate which does not require a separate single tank adapter.
The specially designed waist level webbing slots allow easy adjustment of the harness length/size while on or off the diver, letting the webbing "roll" through to desired tightness, similar to the functionality of the previous Cinch system. This design reduces overall weight of the system and makes it travel friendly.
The new Halcyon Adventurer Plus wing system is a light-weight single tank BC based around the Traveler Pro version of the popular Eclipse wing and a special design Carbon Fiber backplate which does not require a separate single tank adapter.
The whole system includes Halcyon's Traveler Pro wing, the special design CF backplate complete with adjustable standard single loop harness and all stainless wear, an MC Storage Pack for backplate and an intergrated two-pocket weight system. Weight: 3.5Kg without ACB pockets. 4Kg with ACB (with SS hardware).
Both the carbon fiber backplate and wing have webbing slots, allowing the direct use of supplied cambands (with Octogrips) around a cylinder. The backplate itself is shaped to fit snugly against a cylinder eliminating the need for an adapter.
The shoulder-waist webbing slots at hip level allow easy adjustment of the harness length/size while on or off the diver, letting the webbing "roll" through when required. This design reduces the overall weight and makes the system travel friendly.

HALCYON TRAVELER PRO WING
The Halcyon Traveler Pro is a donut shaped back-mounted Buoyancy Compensator (BC) allowing divers to enjoy perfect horizontal trim underwater. It is suitable for single tank divers from any agency and at all levels.
The inner (2nd) bladder of the wing is easily accessible via a zipper which in normal use faces the backplate.
The low drag design of the wing spreads the air in a balanced way on back of the diver, keeping the BC part of the compensator out of the way and offering unprecedented streamlining during a dive. The wing has a narrow elliptic shape which more or less matches the divers width.
There are no air-inflated side panels or pockets as on traditional 'jacket type' BC's, avoiding a "legs down" position often caused by air to the side and front of the diver. There are no restrictions on the diver's chest - making it extremely comfortable, with no chest compression, also allowing one size to fit all with no hassle.
- Available in 30 and 40 lbs lift capacities.
- Lifetime warranty for the first owner on RF-welded seams.
- A drainage system allows water to drain rapidly from the outer cover to minimize excess weight.
- An inflator elbow strain relief constructed from two-inch nylon webbing minimizes wear on this
What size wing? The Halcyon Traveler Pro wing comes in 30Lb (13.6Kg) and 40Lb (18.1Kg) lift capacity and the amount of lift required by a diver depends on his/her kit configuration. When deflated and flat, both size wings are similar in appearance with the 30Lb wing looking only slightly smaller. The 30Lb wing is more suitable for a lighter profile diving rig such as a single 12L steel cylinder whereas the 40Lb is ideal for divers who want that "extra bit" of lift for emergency assistance or to carry heavier cylinder setups like a 15L or an additonal steel pony (please note, Underwater Explorers does not encourage the use of steel stage or emergency bottles due to their weight).
