    It's an older model that DR doesn't sell anymore.

    That will explain why I haven't seen it, must have been a fair few years ago?

    I also have it. It works great. Keeps those heavy Japanese steel tanks from sinking to the abyss.

    I don’t think it’s a dive rite. The old 25 lbs DGX wing that used to come with the BPW package was a rebranded dive rite. I’ve never seen DR sell any of these narrow profile wings.

    It isn't. The old DGX wing was clone of the Dive Rite Travel wing. And in fact was one of the few wings that would work with the Transpac's cam band webbing.

    The new DGX wing is an Oxycheq clone, in fact other than branding I can't spot the difference between it and my VDH wing.

    Thank you all for your replies, when they come back in stock I'll try to get one, personal experience and recommendations are priceless. I'll ask Joyce to pencil me in for one. Take care. Simon.

    I would assume the new dgx is from the same maker as VDH made in the tight center style of OXY (I use VDH) and the old dgx was the open middle diverite style

    Hey Simon, I’ll concur about the wing. I often recommend it as it’s a great streamlined design for a 30# lift, bullet proof materials and a great price.
