Parkway Adds Improved Features To Its Ocean Jacket Buoyancy System

Parkway Systems recently introduced several new features in its total buoyancy compensator (BC) system, the Ocean Jacket, providing divers with maximum comfort and performance.

The inflator hose and O/P valve have been moved to the top of the shoulder for better access. Inflator and quick-dump valve controls remain closely grouped for one-hand operation. The shoulders have a new contour shape for comfort and mobility, and a new Fastex* buckle has been added to the chest strap for easy snap-on. The system provides 44 pounds of lift.

Like all Parkway BCs, the Ocean Jacket can be inflated orally or with C02 detonator, and includes the Softouch® power inflator. The oral inflation hose now incorporates the QD valve for extra convenience.

The Ocean Jacket has Parkway's specially designed, 15-mil polyurethane zip-out bladder to balance air and distribute buoyancy.

The jacket is made of rugged 430-denier nylon with reinforced seams. Other features include Velcro- fastened tabs to hold regulator, octopus, and gauge hoses out of the way, and self-draining pockets.

Color is blue with silver trim.
