    Is anyone familiar with the updates to the 2006 DiveRite TransPac as compared to the 2005 model?

    Scuba.com says it is "completely new & redesigned for 2006!", but the DiveRite website makes no mention of the improvements. Maybe in the way they size it? The 2005 model on Scuba.com has the size "Medium/Large", but the 2006 has the size "Large/XLarge". It also looks like they have added some color options.

    Thanks.

    Dive Rite made a substantial change in both the sizing and the construction method for the Transpac for 2006. They also switched manufacturers at the same time, insuring a better supply chain on the product for the coming years. We have a pdf file on our website that lists the changes and upgrades for 2006. You can use this link to see that pdf file.

    The fit and sizing of the new design is much better than the old Transpac. We have had absolutely no complaints so far and have sold over 50 of the new design harnesses. If you have any questions about the Transpac, just give me a call. I will be glad to discuss it with you. Thanks.
