The durable 420-denier urethane laminated nylon air bladder and self-draining mesh fabric construction will give years of dependable service. The Aquapro 5 has two unique "Gravity" releasable weight pockets that are attached to the bellowed zippered accessory pockets with one on either side of the BCD. The weight pockets closures are squeeze style" quick-release impact and corrosion resistant Fastex buckles. Just squeeze" the buckles and the weights are released. Each pocket can hold over 6 lbs. (2.7 kg). The back support is rigid for proper cylinder stability, but is fully padded for comfort. The harness assembly is an independent suspension system that allows the cylinder and the diver to keep proper stability and avoid cylinder shifting on the back, while allowing the BCD's air cell to fully inflate away from the diver not causing restriction or crushing effect as with non-ergonomic designs. Adjustable sternum straps along with both torso adjustment shoulder straps are equipped with squeeze style" quick-release buckles. The BCD has three over-pressure relief/dump valves with two located on the left and right shoulders and a third lower valve on the rear right of the air cell. All three can be manually dumped two with pull cords and the other with the power inflator mechanism.
