Default OxyCheq Wing

Does anyone know much about the OxyCheq wings? I'm looking at the Dual Bladdder/Inflator extreme version with the puncture and abrasion protection. Haven't heard much about them. What do you all think? Yay or nay??

i just went through the PSD seminar at MBT this past weekend and there were a couple of guys that was using them. they were using dry suits full face masks with comms etc and they seem to work just fine. they look like quality gear in my opinion. but that is my opinion.

If you're going to be diving doubles or doing some type of tech diving and want the redundancy of the dual bladders then get one. I don't personally know anyone that uses one they have way to much lift for single tank diving. The smallest amount of lift that Oxycheq makes in the dual bladder is a 42 lb lift.



I've been diving a Hollis 25 lb Donut wing for the past couple years and love it. You don't really have to worry about them ripping they're extremely sturdy and well built. I have a few friends that dive the 38lb donut and have never heard of someone tearing the bladder.



Just depends what kind of diving you're going to be doing look at that and decide from there. If you're going to be doing single tank diving I'd recommend going to check out the Hollis wings at MBT and they'll be able to hook you up with just what you need.

What size of doubles do you have? This would be a great wing for a set of doubles.

I've been diving an oxycheq 18lb wing on my single tank rig for about 3 years now, and love it.

Don't know much about their larger wings, but another option you might consider....the one I use....is to just mount two independant wings...
I bring an inflator over each shoulder, and depending on the probability of using the second, I supply it with an inflator or not.

If you already have a single wing in the 45-60 lb range this would give you more flexability.....but to each his own.

I will second what Firefishvideo says, I also double up single wings for redundancy when using doubles or stages... It seems to give me more options....good luck....

I have a few dives on my new OxyCheq wing and it has performed great...Would definitely recommend it. I thought about getting the extreme model, but after looking at a few, I decided that the signature series would be plenty durable for me. Good luck with it, let us know what you decide on- I'd be interested to hear what you think about it.
