Details

Built with the explorer in mind, the Nomad XT Sidemount system is made with a super-tough exterior 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 stap 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. The Nomad XT Sidemount system comes assembled and includes a TransPac harness, XT Buttplate, Nomad XT wing ({ 50 lb | 22.68 kg }) with a { 16 in | 40.64 cm } corrugated hose, a plain elbow, a { 22 in | 55.88 cm } low pressure BC inflation hose, and a { 2 in | 5.08 cm } crotch strap, plus two ring and loop bungees w/medium snaps and chokers.

Recently Updated, the Nomad XT has a new shape, giving the diver improved trim where its most needed for sidemount. The top portion of the wing no longer has a middle panel and is much narrower, while the bottom of the wing has a slight flare as compared to the previous model, providing more lift at the hips and less at the head. The inflator has been moved to the center of the wing, while an additional OPV has been added on the right side, allowing divers to switch the inflator and OPVs if they choose. When switching the pull dump to the shoulder, divers like to customize the cord length. Dive Rite now offers a kit (sold separately) for the Nomad with a {25 in | 64 cm} long pull string and ball so divers can select their own custom length. The product video illustrates some of the new updated Nomad features in greater detail.

Nomad streamlining is achieved by integrating the special Nomad wing with the TransPac® harness through wing keepers that hold the wing low across the back to reduce drag. Proper trim comes from the longer wing and a Gusset Control System (GCS) cord that is woven through tabs on the front face of the wing. The GCS cord is positioned on the upper portion of the wing, forcing the lower part of the wing to inflate preferentially, keeping lift around the divers hips where it is needed.

The Nomad wing dual upgrade incorporates 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 wants to ensure their backup buoyancy has the same lift capacity as their primary. The Nomad's unique bladder design allows a single bladder wing to be altered (at the factory) to become a dual bladder wing at a later date, or it can be initially purchased as a dual bladder wing.
