The Halcyon Eclipse Wing System is our most favourite and reliable single tank recreational diving wing. The system includes a Halcyon Eclipse wing and ali or SS backplate complete with standard continuous loop harness, an MC Storage Pack for backplate and a single tank adapter to mount everything securely to a single cylinder.
Totally clutter-free compared to traditional jacket-style BCDs, the profile of the Eclipse Wing supports the single tank along a diver's entire length, preventing unnecessary drag and minimizing in-water effort while distributing air evenly via its donut shape at the back of the diver.
The Halcyon Eclipse Wing 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. It's been our choice wing for try dives and beginner through advanced recreational diving courses for many years.
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.
Advantages of a wing system over a "jacket type" BC are numerous. The Halcyon system depends on a one piece webbing harness looped through a sturdy aluminium or stainless steel backplate that should last many life times. Once donned, a webbing crotch strap can be utilised to keep the whole system in place with minimum movement. This clutter-free system is easily adjustable to suit any size, any type of diving and any thickness of suit/undersuit a diver may be using. It is ideal for men, women and young divers alike and the harness, stainless hardware and backpack can easily be moved to a twinset wing in the future.
The continuous loop harness prevents the frustrating lack of control found with typical buoyancy compensators. Once adjusted to size and fit of suit, there is nothing that can break or come loose. There's a whole lot of fun with less effort in this One Size Fits All adaptable system that'll last you a lifetime! System comes ready with all DIR compliant hardware assembled.
