    Hello All,

    I was just offered a Dive Rite Travel-Pac for $200, with 3 dives on it. Figured this be much easier to use in pool sessions, then my Ranger.

    I have been saving for a TransPac or TransPlate as I hope to start Cavern and Intro to Cave this summer. I am negatively buoyant in general. Using my Ranger and AL63, I drop like a rock. So I was thinking the TransPac and Stabilizing pate.

    Is the Harness of Travel-Pac the Same as the TransPac? Could I just change out the Bladder and be good?

    Also, I saw a Dive Rite Bladder on a Rebreather that had weight pockets in it. Which Model is that?

    Ok, found some info. The TravelPac is the same as the VoyagerPac, which was discontinued, not the TransPac. Still, is there a really big difference?

    It should be the same basic TransPac harness on both. The current Travel Wing, and Voyager Wing are different, but both work fine for a TransPac.

    At $200, that’s a great buy!

    I bought a used travelpac for my girlfriend, and she was really happy with it. You should know it isn't a "modular" system like other diverite gear. The wing, soft backplate and harness are all integrated together, and can't be mix and matched. It's possible to add weight pockets on the cam bands if you want to. I'm not clear on the remaining questions you have; if you clarify I can try to help.
