Oceanic Hera Ladies BCD
The Oceanic Hera Ladies BCD has been developed and built for women and offers significantly enhanced comfort and fit compared to a standard scuba diving BCD. This is not just a BCD with fancy graphics or pink / white trim, the Hera is a BCD designed for women that want to enjoy their diving without the need to constantly adjust the fit or reposition equipment to make the most of things. Everything about the Hera from the harness to the height of the BCD has been carefully tailored and positioned.
The Hera uses a standard style of BCD harness with quick release shoulder straps, chest strap, cummerbund and quick release waist strap but because every diver is different we have created a highly adjustable system. The Hera is fitted with our Adjustable Positioning System (APS) that allows a customised fit, providing a diver with the ability to move the shoulder / waist attachment point back and forth to achieve the optimum fit and hold.
The Hera BCD is fitted with a hybrid bladder that combines the upright stability of a standard all round lift BCD with the benefits of perfect horizontal trim provides by a wing system. The bladder uses an expanding section on the back to increase the overall lift of the BCD without creating additional drag or squeezing the diver when full inflated.
The overall height of the BCD is slightly shorter than a standard BCD to allow for correct weight distribution and load transference to the hips to help prevent back discomfort. A fully rigid back plate provides plenty of strength and stability but is covered with a soft lumber supporting back pad. The underside of the shoulder straps are also padding for additional comfort.
A large zipped pocket can be found on either side of the BCD which offer ample storage. Our QLR4 integrated weight system offers secure but easily accessible weight pockets that allow for balanced weight distribution around the BCD that also helps to alleviate excessive weight loading on a weight belt. In addition to the front removable weight pockets the Oceanic Hera also has two non-dumpable weight pockets mounted to the cylinder strap for trim balancing. The right hand pocket is fitted with grommet holes to accommodate a BCD knife whilst the left hand pocket has a small pouch that is designed to accept our instrument retractor (sold separately)
Of course the Hera is also fitted with typical BCD features such as the inflator system with left shoulder dump function as well as pull dumps on the right shoulder and right rear kidney. A cam strap on the back of the BCD provides secure attachment of the BCD to a cylinder.
All UK purchases of the Hera BCD are covered by a Lifetime warranty that protects the original owner against manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the BCD. To maintain the warranty the BCD must be serviced annually by an authorised Oceanic service centre or dealer but to sweeten the deal Oceanic will provide the standard service kit free of charge so you’ll only be asked to cover the labour costs of the service.
