With the XS Scuba AltAir Octopus there is no more searching for your octopus. Is your octo trailing along in the water behind you? Can you find it in an emergency? Can you find it at all? XS Scuba has addressed that problem by developing the XS Scuba AltAir Octopus. The XS Scuba AltAir Octopus utilizes the same patented quick-release buckles used on today’s most modern weight integrated BC’s. Snap the XS Scuba AltAir Octopus in place to the BC and forget about it. If you need it, then it will be there...every time. Even after a giant stride from a 20’ tuna tower...it’s still there. Yet, just grab and pull the AltAir, that’s all that is needed to release the patented X-Lock buckle.
