The Axiom is a durable, full-featured BC that boasts amazing comfort and fit. This ADV style, wrap-around jacket gets its noticeable comfort and support from Aqua Lung's proprietary Wrapture™ harness system (pat. pend.). The Wrapture™ allows you to stand up straight in total comfort while the cylinder remains perfectly vertical and pulled in close. This comfort, along with the innovative GripLock™ tank band and the SureLock integrated weight system will make the Axiom the new standard for recreational divers.

How to Size your BCD.
Men are measured at waistline (widest part of waist), rather than normal beltline.
Waist size in men is normally measured by placing the measuring tape around the waist, cresting the pelvic bone. This measurement is not accurate for BC fitting.
The waist size in men should be measured at the height of the belly button just above the pelvic bone. Women's waist size is always measured just above the pelvic bone.
This same measurement applies for BC fitting.
Over The Shoulder (OTS) measurement is taken by placing the measuring tape across either the right or left shoulder and reading the distance between the top of the waist line on the back to the top of the waist line in the front.
Again, for this measurement in men the waistline is taken to be at the height of the belly button. When fitting the customer in their respective waist size and OTS range, inquire what thickness of wetsuit the BC is most likely to be worn with. Calculate about a 5cm allowance for the waist measurements for thick, cold water suits.
