About Nomad XT Sidemount Rig - by Dive Rite SKU: BC4650P

 

The Nomad XT is Dive Rite's expedition sidemount system. Built on a TransPac XT base, the Nomad XT is not only suited for sidemount but can handle backmounted doubles, singles, or CCR.

The Nomad XT is built with the ultimate streamlining in mind. A properly balanced sidemount rig should not require additional weight on the shoulders. Divers who wear heavy tanks or those just getting started with sidemount will often opt this older solution to resolve trim issues. Seeing this makeshift solution in the field, we designed our expedition sidemount rig with a wing design to give it the best trim possible directly out of the box. Narrow at the neck and angled at the sides with more lift added to the bottom, the Nomad XT wing is designed to give lift where its most needed - at the hips.

The inflator is at the top center of the wing, behind the neck.  Dual OPVs at the bottom of the wing allows for gas dumping from any angle. Also divers who wish to swap the position of their inflator to route from the bottom, can now do so and retain an OPV dump at the bottom of the wing for safe gas dumping when inverted.

Made with a super-tough exterior and modular flexibility, the outer panels of the wing are engineered using SuperFabric® brand technology for optimum resistance to punctures and abrasions, while remaining very flexible.

In addition to its rugged exterior, the Nomad XT has the added benefit of being a modular system: the harness, wing, buttplate and crotch strap are all separate elements. This allows the traveling explorer (or any diver wishing to modify their rig) the ability to trade out wings, remove the buttplate or make any fit adjustments necessary to meet the objective of the dive mission.

A Gusset Control System (GCS) allows you to control lift when switching out various types of cylinders, such as going from steel to aluminum or twin tanks to single. Without the Gusset Control and without using the wing keepers on the waist belt, the Nomad XT delivers a full 50 lbs of lift.

The Nomad XT includes Dive Rite's Adjustable Bungee System, which allows for easy length adjustment to fit any diver without needing to tie knots. The Adjustable Bungee System also allows a diver to use any bungee configuration they desire, including: ring bungee, loop bungee with snap, and loop bungee. A set of chokers are included for divers using Dive Rite's ring bungee and choker method. The butt plate, made of reinforced nylon to provide the proper amount of rigidity to hold tanks in position and eliminate sag along with two stainless steel rails, provides the lower attachment point for cylinders.

The Nomad XT Sidemount Rig comes assembled and includes a TransPac XT harness, Nomad XT wing, buttplate and 2-inch crotch strap, adjustable bungees, and chokers. Diver needs to specify TransPac size (M-XXL) when ordering. Available in single or dual bladder.

 

Features:

 

  • TRANSPAC XT HARNESS available in sizes M, L, XL, XXL.
  • WING is available as a single bladder or dual bladder
  • Choice of 12-inch, 16-inch or 22-inch elbow corrugated hose along with either 15-inch, 22-inch or 27-inch low-pressure inflation hose. Common configuration is 16-inch corrugated hose with a 15-inch low-pressure inflation hose for an average 6-foot, 225lb man. Please adjust according to chest size, height and individual preference.
  • BUNGEES: Adjustable Bungee System
  • CHOKER (BC2720-CHOKER) comes standard with two, nylon tank neck chokers to attach the Nomad bungee clip to and secure the bottle easily under the arm.
  • Nomad weight Med: 9.375lbs (4.25kg), Lg: 9.625lbs (4.36kg), XL: 10.06lbs (4.56kg)
 
Tips:

 

  • Multiple grommets on the plate allow the diver to move the rig in 2″ increments to adjust trim. Very handy when changing cylinder sizes.
  • The chest strap should be fastened before the bungees are attached. The chest strap is used to ensure the shoulder straps come down across the shoulders and parallel to each other. This way they apply pressure to keep the bungees in place
  • The 2″ crotch strap should be adjusted so it is snug and pulls the waist belt down slightly in the front.
  • For cave diving we recommend butt mounting the canister light on the crotch strap below the tank mounting rings, you will need a longer light cord and the 70 degree angled canister light routes the light cord properly.
  • For sidemount diving, run the light cord up under the waist belt so it doesn’t interfere with cylinder attachments.

Proposition 65

Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – Warnings Required

WARNING: This Dive Right In Scuba product can expose you to cretin chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov



We appreciate your decision to purchase Dive Right In Scuba products to provide the best in water experience. We take our job seriously! You may have noticed that our products now show a warning label at point of sale referring to carcinogens and birth defects. You may also have begun to see warnings related to carcinogenic substances or substances causing birth defects prominently displayed in hotel lobbies, hospitals, or other places of business recently. These warnings are required by the State of California, and we believe that an explanation of the California statute legislating the requirement will provide you valuable information regarding the relative risks of the chemicals that may be present in consumer products.

In 1986, the State of California passed the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act; otherwise known as “Proposition 65” or "Prop 65". Prop 65 requires businesses like ours to disclose to individuals the presence of chemicals listed in the Act prior to point of sale. The regulations implementing this Act have been amended over time with the most recent updates will take effect on August 30, 2018. There are more than 900 chemicals on the Prop 65 Chemical List, including many chemicals that are found in components of a wide array of consumer goods or are used to manufacture components that make up consumer goods.

Prop 65 does not establish acceptable concentrations for any listed chemical; however, the agency which enforces it has established what is called "safe harbor" exposure levels for about one third of these chemicals below which warnings are not required. These "safe harbor" are established for listed carcinogens based on the quantity of the chemical that would result in one excess case of cancer in an exposed population of 100,000, assuming lifetime (70-year) exposure at the level in question. A similar process is used to establish safe harbor levels for listed reproductive toxicants. Additional information in plain language on safe harbor levels is available from the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment at http://oehha.ca.gov/Prop65/background/p65plain.html

At Dive Right In Scuba, the safety of your in water experience is our highest priority. We go to great effort to select materials that offer superior value, quality, and durability while also being generally recognized as safe and reliable for the full life of the product. Dive Right In Scuba also works closely with many regulatory bodies, such as the US Coast Guard and Underwriter’s Laboratories, to ensure the longevity of your on-water safety through targeted selection of durable, long lasting materials and components that undergo significant validation testing before being used to manufacture end items. Sometimes the safety promise we offer appears at odds with the health and safety requirements of other legislation in certain parts of the world when some regulations are updated ahead of others. To ensure compliance with applicable legal requirements, Dive Right In Scuba has placed a warning on products that contain a Prop 65 listed chemical, either directly or as a part of the raw material supply chain. This allows us to comply with California law and provide our California consumers with the disclosure required by Prop 65, while still promising the safest on water experience possible.

Dive Right In Scuba is working diligently with regulatory bodies and our own manufacturing partners to continue to improve our product performance and reduce the presence of less desirable chemicals. Water is a precious resource we all share that is important to the health and well-being of our planet and all people. Our goal is to continue to enhance your water life experience while reducing our overall impact to the planet and, in particular, its waterways. While it is a bit of a juggling act to achieve, we are confident you will see continued improvement in both the immediate and long term future. We hope this explanation will enable you to understand why you will be seeing warnings on some our products.

Thank you for your continued use of Dive Right In Scuba products.

  1. Love this bc review by andrew on 9/5/2017

    Tried out several sidemount bc's such as the ltz, hog, and sms100 and stuck with this one. Has a great amount of lift for diving with heavy steel tanks, optional redundant bladder and built very well. Only issue I had was I needed to replace the dump valve string with something a bit more durable. I have over a 100 dives with this bcd and love it.

  2. Hooked on Sidemount review by Michelle on 5/5/2014
    Overall Rating

    I did a "test-dive" with this BC and I was hooked! It took a little to get it adjusted to me, but a little help from a Dive Rite expert and I was on my way! Add the weight back plate to this for ultimate flexibility.

  3. review by Michael Scorpa on 11/19/2013
    Overall Rating

    I've been sidemounting for about three years now and this was my first sidemount rig. I liked the option of being able to switch back to backmount if I decided sidemount wasn't for me. My honest opinion about this rig is that it is a jack of all trades and king of none. It is essentially a backmount rig converted for sidemount (most of the components were not specifically designed for sidemount). Although you can sidemount then switch to backmount then switch to rebeather with sidemounted bailouts it is not the very best system for any of those modes, but it does get the job done. They should have named this product the "Nomad XT Modular Rig" instead. If you are unsure about sidemounting or routinely flipflop back and forth between modes then this may be a good option for you. It is a bit bulky and heavy to travel with. I'm also not a fan of Dive Rite's bungee system so I have to give it 4 stars at best.

    If you want one tough BC that can do it all, this is for you. Owned this Nomad for over 2 years.. over 200 dives on it. In caves, in wrecks, fresh, saltwater, shore and boat diving. You can not beat this BC. Fully adjustable, plenty of clip off points. I dive pretty much exclusively sidemount now, but have used it with both single and double backmounts as well. Tired of wearing a weight belt. Buy the backplate weight pockets. just attach and forget about it. Rugged and dependable.
