Dive Rite - Transpac XT Harness

$389.00 USD


Born of necessity and refined over years of extreme use, the TransPac XT is Dive Rite’s flagship harness. The TransPac XT was Inspired by a mountaineer’s style backpack distributing weight across the diver's hips and back, not the shoulders. High density foam pads on the shoulders and waist, along with a lumbar support pad provide superior comfort above and below the water.

Originally designed by Dive Rite CEO Lamar Hires for his early expeditions to the remote Karst regions of Japan. On these expeditions he needed a rugged harness system that would allow him to utilize backmounted doubles and single, as well as sidemount in some of the smaller cave passages.  In addition to being a versatile diving tool, the TransPac also needed to be comfortable enough to hike tanks a mile back into a dry cave.

  • Soft backplate. Flexible and comfortable on the back
  • Wrap-around hip pads. Dual density foam pads provide cushioning and support and help distribute weight evenly across the hips and back
  • Ergonomic shoulder pads. Double-foam pads under the webbing strap provide padding comfort to the shoulder area
  • Lumbar support pad. Molded foam pad contoured in the right places with mesh airflow channels provides added comfort and instant water draining when topside
  • Chafe-free comfort. The padded shoulder straps and hip straps provide a chafe-free diving experience
  • Backpacking style waist belt. Supports and balances weight across the hips and back for even distribution of weight in and out of the water
  • Load distribution. The chest strap along with the crotch strap work together with the backpacking style waist belt and pivot ring shoulder straps to evenly distribute weight for maximum stability and comfort in the water
  • Shoulder straps and waist strap: Easily adjustable in length to allow for diving any type of exposure suit
  • Crotch strap (removable): Pull adjustment to set the exact length needed to accommodate any type of exposure suit
  • Cross-chest strap: Buckles across the chest with a pull adjustment to fine tune the shoulder straps in the exact position desired
  • Shoulder straps attach to the top of the backplate at pivot rings, allowing for easy adjustment
  • Pull strap on the quick-release buckles between the shoulder straps and waist strap allow for fine adjustments and a perfect fit
  • Shoulder strap attachment waist plates slide to allow for positioning on the waist strap at the desired location
  • Waist webbing can be easily replaced allowing for many years of use
  • Dive a single tank, double tanks, a rebreather, or sidemount by simply swapping out the wing along with some additional mounting accessories
