Harness only, must purchase wins separately.

Recently updated, the exceptionally rugged and streamlined TransPac XT redefines expectations about function and comfort in scuba harnesses. The radically updated TransPac XT now provides a true mountaineer backpack design with an integrated hip belt, molded foam lumbar support and ergonomic shoulder pads. The included crotch strap and dual stainless steel cam tank straps provide plenty of head room for easy maneuvering in the water. Available in sizes XS-XXL with easy customization options at the shoulder and waist plate, the TransPac XT is designed to fit any size diver.


The TransPac XT evenly balances weight across the hips and back distributing the weight of single or double tanks. The wrap-around hip belt made of dual density foam, snugly hugs the lower back giving critical support and cushioning. Narrow, double-foam shoulder pads fit perfectly beneath the two-inch shoulder webbing to give chafe-free comfort. The high-tech, molded foam lumbar pad is contoured in all the right places with mesh airflow channels for instant draining topside and doubles as a lift-bag sleeve with an integrated pocket. Chest-support strap provides ultimate load distribution and when used with the removable, 1.5-inch crotch strap provides outstanding stability and comfort in the water. Transition plates at the shoulders allow for quick addition/deletion of hardware and finite adjustments.

Neutrally buoyant, the TransPac XT weighs less than 5lbs (2.29kg) and packs flat for travel. Optional weight pockets slide easily onto the waist belt. Available in sizes XS-XXL with easy customization options at the shoulder and waist plate, their is a TransPac XT to fit any size diver. Designed for use with any XT or EXP wing in the Dive Rite line. Made in the USA, the TransPac harness is backed with the Dive Rite Lifetime Warranty.


The Dive Rite TransPac harness, TransPlate harness, plus the TravelPac and VoyagerPac BCs are available in a wide range of sizes. While weight and height are a good starting point for determining your size, a perfect fit requires addtional information. Please carefully take the actual measurements explained below to make sure you select exactly the right size.

  • Shoulder to Waist Length -- To ensure proper shoulder strap length, measure from a point at the top of the shoulder to a point immediately below the waist, as shown in the accompanying diagram. Be sure to allow for exposure suit thickness.

  • Torso Length -- The Standard lumbar backpad and soft backplate of the Transpac, or the standard metal backplate, is the size that most often fits average build men with back-of-neck measurements greater than { 17 in | 43.18 cm }. XS/Small sizes come with Short lumbar backpads and soft backplates that are { 2 in | 5.08 cm } shorter than those of larger sizes. This is the preferred TransPac, TravelPac, and VoyagerPac sizing for any diver whose back-of-neck to waist measurement is less than { 17 in | 43.18 cm } (a range that includes most women). The TransPlate harness should use a Dive Rite 'short' metal backplate for measurements under { 17 in | 43.18 cm }.

  • Waist -- The waist belt includes waist pads that are in proportion to the length of the shoulder strap. The top edge of correctly positioned waist belt will just cover the navel, not rest lower on the hips or higher on the diaphragm.

Each size has an adjustment range so you may tighten or loosen the shoulder straps and waist belt as needed to provide a perfect fit.

  • XS is suitable for very small women and most children. (< { 90 lb | 40.82 kg }, < { 5 ft | 1.52 m })
  • Small is suitable for small women and larger children.
  • Medium is suitable for average sized women, or shorter men.
  • Large is suitable for average sized men.
  • XL is suitable for larger divers or those with a muscular build.
  • XXL is suitable for divers over { 220 lb | 99.79 kg }.

As a starting point for most people, consider what size t-shirt you normally wear. If you wear a mens Large T-shirt, then a Large is probably the best fit. If you wear a mens XL T-shirt, then choose an XL; and so on. If you are 'in between' two sizes then always choose the larger size.

We now also offer the option of building a 'small' size TransPlate solution by using the medium size TransPlate harness and short aluminum backplate.

* Frankly, exceptionally short or tall individuals are not good candidates for BCD solutions based on metal backplates. Very short individuals will find the bottom edge of the plate will dig uncomfortably into the bottom of their torso, or the tank(s) will ride too high on their back. Very tall individuals will find the the waist band will either ride much too high on their torso, or the tank(s) will sit too low on their back. We recommend considering a TransPac, which works for ALL singles and doubles, and is available in sizes to fit ANY individual.
