Note: Conversion Kit for existing Octopus Lanyard users. Belt and Quick Release only, Lanyard not included.
The Octopus CNF belt: a mix of safety, efficiency and comfort. Hydrodynamic and ergonomic, this belt will always stay on your hips no matter what! It is made using only high-quality components, from the strong polyester belt, to the marine grade stainless steel metal parts, and the heavy duty sewings. The stainless steel quick-release also includes an innovative easy-grab tag. Designed and tested by Swiss record-holder Pascal Berger (-131m VWT ). Made in Switzerland, for a quality you can trust.
We drastically reduced the drag during freefall by using a thin but sturdy belt: polyester with aviation-style weaving, only 1mm-thick but able to withstand more than 500kg loads, soft and pleasant to the touch. The carabiner cable being only 3mm in diameter, also contributes to significantly reducing drag.
A simple but efficient fastening system between the legs, quick to clip on, ensures that the belt will not move up the waist during your freefall when your suit compresses. This «AUTOLOCK» system does not require applying excessive tension on the elastic band but keeps it softly and comfortably in place without friction between the legs.
Both front and back buckles can be positioned exactly according to your body shape, same as for the elastic band which can be cut once you have measured the proper length (by first testing it on your own body).
