NEW IN WRAP, HOLLIS SMS 50 Sidemount BCD, One Size Fits All. Has never touched the water! DESCRIPTION: The HOLLIS SMS-50 is a stripped down version of their own SMS 100. With only 23lbs of lift, heavy steel tanks and stages are out of the question with the SMS 50.
The Hollis SMS 50 is geared more towards the new Sidemount Diver and the Traveling / Recreational and Open Water Side-Mount SCUBA Divers (but also has limited Cave Diving applications where appropriate). The SMS 50 is designed for and perfect for 2 standard aluminum 80 cubic inch Scuba Cylinders. When opening up the SMS 50s packaging, the first thing I noticed and what I really do like about Hollis, is that the SMS 50 is a complete kit and comes ready to dive.
EVERYTHING you need to dive Sidemount is included in the bag. Cam bands, snap hooks, even Bungee line to tie it all together. Its a really nice touch from Hollis with this SMS 50 Sidemount BCD.There are no extra or hidden costs to get yourself into the water. Hollis does have the leg up on Dive Rite when it comes to the end-user experience when putting their gear together. The Harness: Compared to a standard harness, like those found on a backplate and wing set-up, the SMS-50 is a dream to adjust.
Its nylon webbing with neoprene padded shoulder and crotch straps are soft and supple making adjustments incredibly easy. The SMS 50s Wing has 23lbs of lift and has a very slim profile with added lift at its bottom made specifically for sidemount diving. Perfect for the twin aluminum 80 cubic inch cylinders found worldwide. There are three weight trim pockets within the wing to make trimming yourself out easy.Each pocket has a maximum 3 lbs capacity. The Low Pressure Inflator Hose comes up from the bottom of the wing on the inside and continues up to the left shoulder D-ring. The attachment for the Low-Pressure Inflator hose is a very sturdy, heavy rubber circular catch.
The Low Pressure Inflator Hose is further protected by a wrap-around Codura casing. Cylinder Attachments: Like the SMS 100 the SMS 50 comes standard with 2 bungees with snap hooks that come down from the shoulder-blade area, under the arm and snap into the shoulder D-rings or can attach to the two swivel D-ring on the harness, whichever you prefer. The snap hooks that come with the SMS-50 are large and are easy to operate by feel or if you are diving in colder water and have gloves on.
ADDITIONALLY, Side-Mount Diving the SMS 50 with just a single aluminum 80 cylinder is easy. Just add weight to the opposite side and setting your trim in the water is a breeze and takes very little effort. This is a very easy set-up to dive and liberates your back from a tank allowing you to swim freely while diving reefs, wrecks and walls.
