TUSA's Soverin Alpha incorporates TUSA's new Advanced Weight Loading System (A.W.L.S III). The BCD features a new repositionable D-ring and snap hook design for personal customization. The Soverin Alpha offers a secure comfortable fit provided by TUSA's Independent Harness System, enhanced lumbar and comfort back pad. The newly designed waist belt adjusts effortlessly and the weight trim pockets are sealed by heavy duty zippers.
TUSA's 3'rd generation Advanced Weight Loading System (AWLS III) allows the diver to insert weights into the weight-cartridges and loading them easily into the front of the BC jacket. Additionally, with weight distribution to the shoulder area, the weighted-down feeling that is traditionally associated with weight belts is eliminated. Weight cartridges can accommodate 8 lbs. (3.63 kg) of weight in each cartridge and two rear zippered closure trim pockets can hold up to 4 lbs. (2 kg) in each non-releasable pocket. The AWLS weight cartridges are easy to release in an emergency, but the safety lock makes sure that they do not release accidentally.
The Rite Tite Buckle is a 2-position cylinder cam strap for quick-and-easy adjustment. While the strap is being looped through the buckle, the buckle stays in place without needing to be held. This allows for more control and stability. TUSA's Ultimate Stabilizing Harness completely eliminates tank roll and delivers an amazing fit. The U.S.H. securely holds the air cylinder in place with optimally placed rails and brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight.
Torso-adjustable shoulder and sternum straps provide excellent comfort along with an adjustable waist strap with cummerbund provides precise adjustment of harness. All straps are equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. Sternum strap is equipped with a signaling whistle. The Soverin Alpha BCD has an enhanced lumbar and back pad for maximum comfort. The BCD's Independent Harness System" (IHS) isolates the BC jacket's harness from the air cell, tightly supporting the tank even with changes in air cell inflation/deflation. The IHS prevents tank slippage and eliminates any gaps between the tank and your back. The air cell is constructed from durable 500D Cordura with a urethane lamination that has radio frequency (RF) welded seams. Buoyancy control is facilitated with the TUSA Tilt Valve Inflator mechanism. Inflator is equipped with a left shoulder cable activated pull dump valve and comes complete with a 3/8" threaded QD hose assembly. The jacket BCD also has a right shoulder and right rear lower overpressure/relief valves with pull cords for trimming buoyancy in any position when diving. The Soverin Alpha BCD provides lift capacities from 23.6 lbs. to 43.8 lbs. (10.7 kg to 19.9 kg) depending on size. The Soverin Alpha BCD comes with an owner's manual.
