With an oval shape, the Travel Wing is a lightweight, small-profile BC aircell that is great for travel and warm-water, single tank diving. This is our best selling Dive Rite singles wing!

At { 25 lb | 11.3 kg } of lift, the Travel EXP is perfect for AL80/LP80/HP100 cylinders and as a part of the Dive Rite modular BCD system, it can be matched with either a TransPac, Transplate or any metal backplate and webbing harness.

Divers may choose from the durable 1680 ballistic nylon EXP material or the even more rugged SuperFabric® brand technology XT material that creates an armor-clad outer shell that is impervious to damaging pinches and cuts, with a 1680 ballistic nylon diver's side panel. Both are further enhanced with a heavy-duty, 210 denier nylon laminated bladder. The standard inflation assembly is a { 16 in | 40.6 cm } corrugated hose with a { 22 in | 55.9 cm } low pressure BC inflator hose and your choice of pull-to-dump remote exhaust elbow or a plain elbow. Also available with a { 12 in | 30.5 cm } corrugated hose, { 15 in | 38.1 cm } low pressure BC inflator hose, and plain elbow.

Travel Approximate dimensions uninflated: {21.5 in H x 15 in W | 55 cm x 38 cm}

Dive Rite Air Cells Overview

Dive Rite's wings utilize a 360 degree, donut-style bladder design that provides an even volume of inflation on top, sides and bottom, which improves buoyancy control and promotes a more efficient, horizontal trim. The heavy-duty 210 denier nylon laminated inner bladder is pinch and puncture resistant, chemical resistant and resists the growth of microorganisms. Each airtight inner bladder is surrounded by an outer fabric shell (available in two different versions) and an oral/power inflation assembly. The outer fabric shell protects the wing from tears and abrasion.

EXP versions - The EXP series wings have an outer fabric shell made of tough 1680 denier ballistic nylon. The EXP wings are available in black with gray side panels. EXP series wings feature a one year warranty.

XT versions - The XT series outer fabric shell, built upon the legendary toughness of SuperFabric® brand technology, is outstandingly rugged. SuperFabric is a technical fabric resistant to cuts and abrasion. Created with a base fabric and then overlaid with tiny guard plates, this proprietary armored surface, along with material science and strategic geometric patterns, transform ordinary fabric into SuperFabric brand materials. Spacings between the guard plates allow for flexibility and breathability, yet are small enough to keep sharp objects from penetrating. Dive Rite's XT Armored wings have the durability of SuperFabric outer side with a 1000 denier Cordura® inner side to create an armor-clad shell that is impervious to damaging pinches, cuts and abrasions. The Dive Rite XT wings feature a LIFETIME GUARANTEE.

Lift Capacity - A very common error when selecting a wing is to choose a size much too big, causing a "taco effect" that makes managing buoyancy considerably more difficult. The cylinder size, type and configuration, not lift capacity, is the best guide to selecting the correct wing.

Inflation Assemblies - Configurations are available with a pull-to-dump remote exhaust elbow for sport diving applications that favor ease of use, or a plain elbow for technical diving applications that favor simplicity. Most divers prefer the { 16 in | 40.6 cm } corrugated hose with a { 22 in | 55.9 cm } low pressure BC inflator hose. But, some technical divers seeking ultra-streamlined configurations prefer the { 12 in | 30.5 cm } corrugated hose and { 15 in | 38.1 cm } low pressure BC inflator hose; especially on doubles.

Singles & Doubles Wings - While the Rec wing design can be adjusted for occasional use with singles, keep in mind they are not designed to be used primarily as singles wings and they are not optimal with singles. Realistically, there is no wing perfect for both singles and doubles, or even a wing perfect for all doubles. If the range of cylinder configurations which you dive is broad, then the best choice for efficient and comfortable diving may be to own more than one wing.

Dual versions - The dual bladder wings offer the same versatility and lift capacity of the single bladder wings, but also incorporate two bladders to provide back-up inflation. The dual option is ideal for technical divers who dive wet and do not have a drysuit as alternate buoyancy. Or, for any diver who want to ensure their backup buoyancy has the same lift capacity as their primary.

Gusset Control System - The GCS is used to streamline the shape of the Dive Rite wings to keep the excess of these larger wings from wrapping around the cylinders or "flapping." The GCS does not create a bungee wing because it does not restrict air flow; instead the GCS promotes added streamlining and buoyancy control, yet allows the wing to full inflate to its full capacity. The GCS can be disabled by moving two clips to release all tension on the cord, allowing the wings to fully inflate without any retraction effect from the GCS. For those who prefer not to use the Gusset Control System, the cord may be removed entirely.
