In Reply to: Yes, this looks like the set-up posted by Walt on June 04, 2005 at 08:55:24:

Walt, I owned a Dive-Rite Transpac II with the Travel Wing for two years. Or as Terry May calls them the Trash Pac II. The harness was comfortable and for the most part the wing was small. The reason I sold it was the BC would never dry out on the trip to the harbor. I carry my tank to my car wearing my BC. I would end up getting my shirt and shorts wet. Not good for my seat covers. The other thing was when inflated enough to keep my face out of the water the BC would my push me face first into the water. I made the decision I still liked my old Sea Quest BC better. Before I get chastised by the Tech-es I did not want to add the counter weight to the back of the tank. Just more weight to carry in the water and up the from the dive platform. Getting up the ladder with my HP 120 is hard enough with my bad knees. dawhale
