Buddy Explorer BCD

The BUDDY Explorer is our top end sport jacket built to exactly the same high standards of quality, performance and comfort as the rest of the BUDDY range. The difference is in the fit - with the Explorer better suited to divers with a shorter torso length than its stable-mate, the BUDDY Commando

The Explorer is packed with features designed to make your diving as comfortable and responsive as possible
Comfort & Fit

  • New element:: Comfort Fit System – adjustable to the finest degree at shoulders, waist and back plate. The removable harness offers the best tailored fit of any jacket on the market
  • Anatomically contoured and fully padded throughout at shoulders, waist and back   
  • Unique stabilising cradle on the backpack eliminates tank roll and caters for different cylinder diameters and Twinset and Pony Cylinder Band upgrade options

Buoyancy Control & Safety

  • 2 rapid response Air Dump/over-pressure valves at kidney and shoulder with large easy-find pull-grips. The kidney grip is designed to float for easy location when diving head down while the shoulder grip is negatively buoyant and always to hand
  • Third shoulder exhaust/over-pressure valve built into the inflator assembly  
  • Choice of high performance AP Emergency Breathing Valves the new and improved balanced Auto Air (EN250 regulator standard) alternative air source/inflator or the superb AP200 power inflator  
  • Optional lightweight aluminium 232 bar mini-cylinder for emergency breathing and buoyancy
  • Optional Rapid Release System Integrated Weights with a unique and secure mechanical locking system (+ve lock with audible click). The weight pouches hold up to 5kg each weight pouch (10kg total) hard or soft lead and feature sturdy easy-grip release handles 
  • For divers who prefer a traditional weight belt, Cargo Clips are provided as standard to utilise this pocket space for stowage of a lift bag, SMB or torch  
  • Encapsulated reflective piping for enhanced diver visibility   
  • Tank positioning and safety strap
  • Super Cam cylinder band grips the main cylinder with absolute security

Quality & Performance

  • The toughest Twin Bag construction ever made with our unique new 1000 denier Endura FX100 outer shell material and a PU airtight inner bladder so good it comes with a Lifetime Warranty on the HF welded seams
  • Patented Stud System construction protects the buoyancy bladder by transferring the main stresses to the tough outer shell. The system also allows rapid flow of air around the jacket allowing the diver to move freely underwater unhindered by trapped air pockets
  • Spacious Side Pockets securely sealed with chunky snag-free10mm Zips and long easy-grab zip-pullers. The pockets feature handy internal 35mm D rings and mesh gussets for rapid drainage  
  • Super-strong 50mm side release catches at shoulders and waist for simple and rapid donning and doffing of kit with or without gloves  
  • Ergonomic solid-grip carry handle
  • Strobe or Snorkel attachment point at the shoulder
  • Foldaway mini-cylinder pouch at rear 
  • Foldaway SMB pouch at rear 
  • Foldaway hose runners for efficient equipment management
  • Expandable gusset structure ensures the buoyancy cell inflates away from the body minimising squeeze
  • 4 welded stainless D rings with the 2 at the shoulders pre-bent to 30° to stand off the jacket for easy location and attachment
