R1 is a new Cressi product designed for divers who want a very complete yet light, hydrodynamic and affordable jacket. It is suitable for most recreational divers. It combines traditional structure with notable buoyancy.
Due to its unique waist-length shape and larger wings, it is especially hydrodynamic. It is a durable, comfortable, affordable and well-balanced model with large capacity pockets. Its sober elegant design combines neutral colours appropriate for every kind of equipment. The rounded, exceptionally spacious pockets are easily accessible with durable YKK© 8pitch zippers and gussets. The axillary strap system and low wings guarantee freedom of movement and prevent the diver’s chest from being constricted.
The new cushioning in the shoulder pads enhances the comfort of the R1. The 2.0 version of the weight LOCK AID SYSTEM is integrated, safe and easy to use. The lighter structure makes it possible to use the jacket without weights, too. Light, compact, semi-rigid backpack, minimal points of friction with the internal fabric. New design so the backpack handle is always accessible. Back plate to keep the tank perfectly cantered, with non-slip rubber inserts and new strap to anchor the valve. Waistband strap independent of the air bladder to avoid constricting the diver’s body when the jacket is inflated. Adjustable length cummerbund. Four 50mm angular stainless D-rings and two 25mm D-rings in ABS. Especially flexible materials used for the lateral parts, pockets and shoulder pads to ensure comfort and to take up as little space as possible inside the carrying case.
Elastic chest strap. Direct System Inflator 2011, can be disassembled, no tools needed, for cleaning “on the beach” in case of sand infiltration. Exclusive double filtration system in metal mesh to prevent particulates from infiltrating the inflation valve. Anti-sand design makes it difficult for grains of sand to block the mechanism. Angular stainless steel D-rings and "Y” hose holders.
