The XDEEP Stealth 2.0 Sidemount BCD is a modular side-mount style wing that is low profile and fully customisable for your chosen loadout. Compact the Stealth harness fits to your body shape and size and the wraparound wing clings to your body so you have a small profile in the water to fit through restrictions.
Who's the Stealth For?
The Stealth was made for modern side mount divers who want their wing to be customisable so you can have D-Rings exactly where you need them and weight exactly where you want them. Originally made for cave divers Stealth was made to be flexible so you can customise your BCD and go wherever you need to.
Rec Vs Tec
The difference between Rec and Tec is in the harness configuration. The Rec harness has quick adjust pinch clip buckles so you can get in and out of the harness easier. For more DIR purists the Tec doesn't feature clips or quick adjustment, you just adjust each strap to size when you first get it.
The Stealth comes in a few weight configurations depending on your needs. All of your weights are kept down your spine in Velcro pouches in either an 8 x 1.5kg or 4 x 2.5kg configuration or other. Separating the pouches means you can control where your lead sits and because it's down your spine it's close to your body and centre of buoyancy.
4x2.5kg allows for large blocks of lead whereas 8x1.5kg means you get lots of little pouches for single blocks so you can really fine-tune your trim.
The Stealth is not supplied with a LPI Hose so you'll need a standard size fitting and you can choose whatever length suits your setup. Find a selection of compatible hoses here.
sidemount diving involves a lot of boltsnaps and hardware so check out our range of clips and hardware for whatever you may need.
The bladder wraps around you for a close fit that feels natural and gives you buoyancy where you want it. The inflator hose can be moved to either side and a central kidney dump is easy to reach with either hand without changing position in the water.
Panels of the bladder are reinforced with tougher material around areas that usually experience wear and tear.
Weight pockets down your spine let you trim your weight where you need it for perfect trim. Weight blocks can be moved to different compartments inside the system and the whole thing can be moved up and down your spine.
The Stealth system has been used by expedition team members on multiple exploration projects including Mahafaly Karst and Nevado Tres Cruces Medexpedition and the world record attempt by Ahmed Gabr down to 232.35m. The harness system is the perfect mounting robust enough for the toughest cave and safe enough for world record attempts.

?If part of a system your wing may be attached to a backplate and the type of backplate affects your diving. Aluminium backplates are great for travelling because they are light but steel backplates are good becuase they are heavy so they act as trim weight so you don't need as much on your weight belt.Close.
?Most wings have two layers, with a protective outer shell made from Cordura or similar material. the higher the dernier weave the stronger and more abrasion-resistant the outer shell will be to protect the bladder inside.Close.
?Where the elbow or corrugated hose is mounted to the bladder.Close.
?The internal bladder is the section that is protected by the outer shell which actually contains the gas you use to control your buoyancy.Close.
?The amount of positive buoyancy this wing can provide in Kilograms.Close.
?The amount of positive buoyancy this wing can provide in Pounds.Close.
?The amount of positive buoyancy this wing can provide in Newtons.Close.
?The shape of the bladder, Horseshoe wings have two lobes that sit either side of your tanks and are connected at the top. Good for shorter tanks like 10L but these are going out of fashion for Donut shape wings.
Donuts are a large O shape bladder that circle your tank(s) and allow for better airflow so that iar can migrate all around the bladder.
Sidemount Wings will have unique wing shapes for the different buoyancy requirements of sidemounting cylinders.Close.
?Wings are designed to provide effective trim and buoyancy for one type of cylinder configuration. Single cylinder wings will tend to be slim with cam band slots. Twin wings will have a much wider middle section so they can inflate around a pair of tanks and sidemount wings are unique because the cylinders are mounted either side of you.
Using the wrong kind of wing on the wrong kind of setup can be bad as you may not have enough lift, the shape of the wing could trap air so pick the right wing for the diving you plan to do.Close.
