  • Description

    The Apeks WSX-45 is a complete sidemount system that includes the bladder, harness with crotch strap, D-rings, bungee and accessory butt pack.

    The bladder is constructed from ArmoguardTM, a super-tough material normally found in public safety diving and military products. This smooth material is ten times more abrasion resistant than standard CorduraTM, making this a wing designed with serious sidemount diving in mind.

    The Apeks “SlideLock” sliding D-ring is brand new and unique to Apeks. It allows the diver to easily change the position of the cylinders as their buoyancy changes during the dive. No need to clip your cylinder on and off, simply adjust the position of the D-ring during your dive.

    The two-piece plate system is adjustable to any torso length, making this a one size fits all harness. The WSX has individual webbing sections rather than one long piece running through the harness, which allows the complete system to be quickly and easily adjusted.
