XDEEP Stealth 2.0 Harness
XDEEP Stealth 2.0 Harness
The modular side mount harness
The revolutionary Stealth 2.0 system provides enormous possibilities for the configuration of the harness depending on your needs. The system is based on perfect side mount Stealth 2.0 harness which you can combine with several types of ballast pockets of various capacities. If you dive in a wet suit, the Stealth 2.0 will make it possible to mount standard double-part XDEEP ballast pockets, which enables you to dropp the weight in cases of emergency.
Weight issue finally solved!
Do you use dry suit with thick insulation? Have you thought about how you’re going to mount the weight in your side mount harness? While designing Stealth 2.0 harness, we aimed at solving the said problem. 12kg? 16kg? No problem! Even if you need more than 20kg we have a solution. The unique Stealth 2.0 weight system in a very flexible way enables you to adjust the number of weights to your needs – regardless of whether you use a 3mm-thick wet suit or dry suit with thick undergarment.
Smooth adjustment of the centre of gravity
As you perfectly know, the correct distribution of weight is the key element in reaching the ideal trim. Also in side mount. In the case of twinset you reach that by moving the V-weight into its proper place. The xDEEP weight system enables smooth and precise adjustment of the position of the centre of gravity – the central weight pocket can be moved within significant range. What is the effect? Ideal trim in any configuration.
Test yourself the excellence of Stealth 2.0 weight system
In order to show you how well-designed and universal Stealth 2.0 weight system is, we developed a special configuration tool which makes it possible for you to check various options of weight pockets and their configuration. Enter, test various combinations and choose the one that suits you best.

Total freedom of movement
Since the junction points of the Stealth 2.0 harness were placed exactly within the natural axis of the body's rotation, the shoulder straps always have the correct length regardless of the position you take under the water. Simply put, nothing pulls nor restricts your freedom of movement. Moreover, the weight system was designed to provide maximum comfort – the central pocket can be moved relative to the lower junction point of the harness, and has no resistence when you turn your body around.
STEALTH 2.0 harness is so designed that each of the straps can be adjusted separately. It is a huge advantage since in contrast with the side mount harness made of one piece of strap, a change in the length of shoulder straps does not cause the D-Rings to move to your waist strap. The adjustment of the harness is much quicker. If you are the instructor, you know how advantageous this is. Why waste precious time during the course?
Three areas of rigidity
Various parts of the side mount harness require different level of rigidity of the webbing. The waist strap is very rigid, and consequently the D-Rings work better and the harness is definitely more stable. The shoulder straps are softer, which makes them more flexible around the shoulders. The crotch strap is very soft to prevent wear through the dry suit. It is a unique solution which perceptibly improves the comfort of the harness user.
Move the cylinder mounting point with one move
As you certainly know, the aluminium cylinders change their buoyancy from the negative one, when full to the positive one, when empty. On the waist strap, we mounted the D-Rings made of hard rubber which can be moved during the dive. This smart solution makes it possible to change the cylinder mounting point on the waist strap with one move which always places the cylinders ideally in a horizontal position.
100% secure closure
The innovative Stealth 2.0 weight pocket closing system is designed to minimize the risk of accidental loss of weight. In contrast with other side mount weight pocket solutions, the smart system of pocket closure enables quick visual control: you can immediately see that the pocket is not secured. In caves or wrecks, the upper band prevents automatic opening of the pocket even when in contact with the ceiling.
Easy replacement of each part
Regardless of the harness structure, the webbing is the element which wears out the fastest. If we fixed them permanently, then after wearing out, we would have to replace the whole harness. Think about it: would you buy a backplate with the webbing fixed for good? In the STEALTH 2.0 side mount harness you can replace the webbing by yourself since each of the straps is easy to dismount.
