Technical outfit Finn Sub has announced a new series of wings for the discerning deep diver.

The Czech outfit’s new buoyancy jackets are based on the DIR ethos of simple, high quality design.

Although the FLY brand is pitched at technical divers, Finn Sub has included entry-level ‘Comfort’ harnesses for recreational and sport divers, too.

FLY BCDs are modular and can be ordered to suit. Choose either a horseshoe or complete donut-shaped wing, sized to fit either single tanks or twins.

Backplates are made of stainless steel or aluminium; the harness comes with or without quick release pockets; and customers also get their pick of two bladder materials and inflator sizes.

To be exact, the air sack is constructed from either Cordura 500 or PU foil 500 micron, with inflators of 40 cm with pipe and 50 cm with Rapid Exhaust Valve available.

Launching the range, Josef Vacek, Finn Sub CEO said: “We know the opportunities and we have the experience. Our aim was to create a varied and inter-compatible solution that every kind of diver can choose his best configuration for.

“I am thrilled to present our new FLY products.“

Founded in 1998, Finn Sub has built up a reputation for sturdy gear, particularly high performance dive lights.

The FLY range promises more of the same. The wing’s out layer is Cordura 2000 and pretty much puncture proof. Plastic parts have been ditched in favour of stainless steel. And fastenings are modeled on those used by parachutists.

If they’re good enough for them…
