This products Overview
The BC2 is the back inflation evolution of the acclaimed Atomic BC series. The Atomic BC2 incorporates the same futuristic, incredibly tough, corrosion-resistant materials as the jacket-style BC1. A result of the Atomic “design studio” approach, the BC2 is a radical design departure from conventional back inflation BCs and is the TOUGHEST BACK INFLATION BC in the world.
The BC2 is crafted using a unique double-laminated polyurethane-coated fabric and corrosion-resistant metals. The attractive matte-coated fabric sheds water so the BC2 is virtually DRY seconds after surfacing. This exclusive Atomic Aquatics BC series fabric is incredibly strong and durable to provide years of confident diving. It holds nearly double the pressure of standard BC materials, is virtually impenetrable and resists abrasion, tears and punctures. Self-cleaning, UV and stain-resistant, it also resists chemicals, mold, rot and mildew.
PATENTED EZ-LOK WEIGHT SYSTEM
The exclusive Atomic Aquatics EZ-LOK Weight Release System enables divers to quickly, easily load weights while in or out of the water. Two zippered pouches each hold up to 10 pounds of hard or soft weights (14 pounds for X-Large size). Weight pouches glide into pockets under the arms and lock into place with a reassuring “SNAP.” A simple one-handed tug on the handle is all it takes to release. Weight pouch is secured at the BC back to prevent shifting forward.

CAM-LOK TANK BAND
The Ratcheting CAM-LOK Tank Band is the result of Atomic Aquatics engineers rethinking everything. It allows divers to mount and secure the BC2 to a wide range of tank sizes in just seconds. The ratcheting band is similar to the bindings on ski boots and quickly adjusts without the cumbersome weaving of webbing through a buckle. Pressing the over-center buckle locks it down. The strong one-piece band is polyurethane coated and sealed from the elements so it won’t slip, stretch, or absorb water like conventional nylon webbing.
1. EXCLUSIVE LAMINATED & COATED WATERPROOF FABRIC
The custom matte finish fabric looks and feels unlike any other BC. Not only is it beautiful, it LOOKS as tough as it is, designed to hold up year after year. It is virtually impermeable and resists abrasion, tears and punctures. The strong double-laminated polyurethane coated fabric actually SHEDS water like a raincoat.
2. RATCHETING CAM-LOK TANK BAND
This Atomic Aquatics design exclusive is the easiest tank band to use, working much like ski and snowboard bindings. Easily adapts to a wide variety of tank sizes. No more wetting a nylon web band and weaving it through a buckle.
3. PATENTED EZ-LOK WEIGHT RELEASE SYSTEM
A remarkably easy-to-use design feature. Each weight pouch holds up to 10 lbs. of hard or soft weights, smoothly glides into pockets, and locks with a reassuring “SNAP”. Releases with a simple tug on the handle.
4. QUILTED BACKPAD & ADJUSTABLE LUMBAR PAD
Uniquely elegant and functional, enabling a diver to adjust for the most comfortable fit. BC2 carrying handle is concealed behind the diamond pattern backpad.
5. SAND-RESISTANT POCKET ZIPPERS
Uniquely Atomic, the self-sealing zipper closes completely to prevent sand or debris from getting caught in zipper teeth.
6. TITANIUM-COATED STAINLESS STEEL D-RINGS
Custom 316 Stainless Steel D-rings with Titanium PVD coating are corrosion-resistant and strategically placed for convenience.
7. LOW-PROFILE TRIM WEIGHT POCKETS
Uniquely hydrodynamic pockets each hold up to 5 lbs. for improved diver profile in the water.
8. NON-SKID TANK PAD
Combined with the CAM-LOK tank band, the rigid molded tank pad and backpack provides ultimate tank security with CNC-Machined Stainless Steel hardware molded to the frame.
9. “DRY GLIDE” EXHAUST PULL DUMPS & KNOBS
Low friction 316 Stainless Steel pull dumps in two locations with patent pending Anti-Floating Pull Knob with lengthened tails.
10. HIGH-PERFORMANCE INFLATION CHOICES
A choice is in the air. A truly elite world-class BC deserves high-performance inflation and safe second options. Dive with the innovatively designed Atomic SS1 available in Titanium or Stainless Steel. Or dive with a high performance pairing of the Atomic Octo and the Ai Power Inflator. Inflator/safe second options sold separately.
