The SAR- Designed for Public Safety Divers
The SAR BC, along with the 911 BC, was introduced in 1997 in response to many requests from Public Safety divers for systems designed to fit their needs.
The SAR BC is identical to the 911, except for the addition of a permanently installed lifting harness for helicopter, cliff, or swiftwater work.
It is based on the Tech BC platform, with a twin buckle front closure, but has additional features. These include SOLAS standard symbols on buckles, reflective trim on the bladder, additional D-rings, pockets for long octopus hose storage on each bladder wing, and an included split saddle harness.
The SAR has been proven to be a durable and flexible platform by a large number of public safety and military agencies in the US and abroad.
