    Dear fellow divers,
    does anyone own the Mach V in 18lbs size, and could do me the favor to measure length and width when fully inflated? I would also love to know its weight.

    Reason is I want to know what's the difference to the 30lbs wing, i.e., if the smaller one makes sense as a second wing for a light and streamlined tropical rig.

    Thanks!

    This is the wing I am getting for my tropic travel setup, I have seen it, and it's small. IMO the lights bc every is the 18lb wing with the ultralight bp; it's going to weight a few pounds.

    I have an Oxy 18 lb wing (not a Mach V).......

    Fully inflated 22 by 15 inches......

    Using my digital bathroom scale and weighing myself and then myself holding the wing, it is 1 pound.....but this is not very accurate as the scale rounds to the nearest whole number.......

    I really like it, small easy to travel with and great underwater........

    Only issue I ever had was trying to retrieve a 40 lb weight belt from the bottom.....a big guy dropped it while getting back on the boat, I was still in the water and saw it go by, so I went down to get it.......luckily I carry a Carter lift bag/surface marker so I got it back to the boat......
