    A question on these wings that everyone on here seems to love - can the internal bungee be removed?

    Yes it can, similar to threading a string through the hood of a sweatshirt.

    I just ordered the 35# wing. Does the inflator hose have a pull dump?

    Absolutely not. You can swap the one that comes on it for one for a pull dump if you like.

    If you pull the inflator up over your head and push the proper button, than yes :) I’m sorry couldn’t help myself. The dive rite one fits, I even tried it once, don’t like it at all so I have one that’s like new, I’ll trade it for your plain one.

    Haha. Raising it with my left arm would be a miracle.

    A motorcycle wreck back in my 20s paralyzed my left deltoids, and I like the security of being able to use the dump with either hand.

    I will keep in mind trading out. The BP/W experience will be new to me. It may be a non-issue, but we’ll see.

    Why would you want to remove the bungee?

    Some people don’t like them and/or don’t believe in them.
    I like them personally.
