The latest Guardian has an incredible 1680/1000 denier nylon build.
There’s thirteen D rings on the BCD, nine of which are stainless steel. There’s also two clips either side of the jacket, two generous zipped pockets and four air dumping methods.
The jacket’s two integrated quick-release weight pockets and two rear trim weight pockets give a wide range of weight options.
The Guardian has all-new features and extras: our ergonomically designed power inflator system, EES (Easy Evacuation System), Moulded Protection Plate, sliders for vertical adjustment of the chest strap, a removable reflective pocket for our Flexi-Light, and a removable bungee cord with a split ring attachment point.
To top it off, the BCD features a rugged, striking outer layer on the side panels, and it’s supplied with a Northern Diver carry bag.
