You Asked For It
More than 300 female divers, instructors and Oceanic Dealers participated in a detailed survey to help develop the ultimate women‚Äôs-specific BC design. Time and time again, we heard what is lacking in today‚Äôs BCs designed for women: a BC that‚Äôs actually designed to fit you; not a scaled-down male BC. You‚Äôre looking for a BC that‚Äôs comfortable, contoured in all the right places, but one that doesn‚Äôt sacrifice features or functionality.
You want a BC that‚Äôs travel-friendly, yet rugged enough and packing the lift capacity required for daily local diving. And finally, you‚Äôre looking for something with a little style preferably not just big swatches of pink or purple material. You ask for it ‚Äì Oceanic delivers.
Patented Custom Fit Harness
Oceanic‚Äôs patented Custom Fit Harness is standard equipment on the Hera. With multi-position shoulder straps and cummerbund, the Hera delivers individual comfort for women of all shapes and sizes.
Hybrid Bladder Design
The innovative design of the Hera allows the freedom of movement and other benefits you have come to expect from a rear-inflation BC. However, the unique wraparound design of the air cell provides you more lift than most BC‚Äôs; as well as an improved, upright orientation when the BC is inflated on the surface.
Patented QLR (Quick Lock & Release) Weight Integration System
Angled down slightly to aid self-loading, Oceanic‚Äôs patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System keeps up to 20 lbs. of releasable weight in position and stable throughout the dive. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release when you want to. Best of all, our patented positive-lock system helps to ensure that they‚Äôll stay put.
Rear Weight Pockets
Located on the back of the BC on either side of the cylinder band. Provides greater integrated weight capacity and better attitude underwater. Carries up to 10 non-dump able pounds.
Fadeless 1000 Denier Cordura Construction
Exterior abrasion points are covered in our "Fadeless" 1000-denier Cordura ‚Äì tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that new look longer.
Optional Integrated Retractor / BC Knife System
Built-in retractor and Spinner BC Knife attachment points ‚Äì perfect for streamlining gauges, lights and other essentials.
Reliant Integrated Inflator
Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Reliant Integrated Inflator provides a full range of airway exhaust/inflation control. Simply press a button to produce precise flow for trimming dive altitude or maximum flow for major changes in buoyancy. A large exhaust valve creates a flow rate higher than the inflation rate of the power inflator, improving diver control during ascents.
Patented Depth-Compensating Adjustable Cummerbund
Oceanic‚Äôs patented depth compensating cummerbund is manufactured from a unique woven elastic material that eliminates the need to readjust as your suit compresses at depth. Oceanic‚Äôs cummerbund offers up to 8? of adjustment to fit a wide range of sizes. For additional customization, the cummerbund may be easily changed with another size.
Padded Backpack and Additional Lumbar Support
Extra heavy-duty padding provides comfort both above and below the surface without having to sacrifice the stability of a hard backpack.
Large Main Zippered Pockets
Zippered so they‚Äôre easy to get into. Enough room to store your Light, extra Shadow Mask, Pocket Snorkel, and more!
