The Lotus is a back inflation style BC designed specifically for women and incorporates Aqua Lung’s integrated Wrapture™ Harness System.
With the Lotus, the Wrapture™ Harness System hugs the contours of the female body with specially curved shoulder straps and side lobes that provide better fit. Integrated weights are held securely in place with the SureLock II™ mechanical weight system.
Wrapture Harness System (pat. pend.) – Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from “riding-up” on the surface. Out of the water, the Wrapture keeps the cylinder close to your center of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. The result is the ability to stand up straight with a cylinder that is perfectly vertical.
SureLock IITM Mechanical Weight Release System (patented) – allows you to easily insert the weight pouch and an audible “click” lets you know the weights are secure in the BC. Once engaged, the weights can be released with a firm pull the handle
