THE PIKE BAG
The Pike waterproof rucksack was designed for Combat swimmers, Combat divers, SDV teams, Scout swimmers and for any environment that requires a waterproof capability. The Pike bag is the result of 18 months of research and development, undertaken by two retired Combat divers with 18 years worth of maritime experience. The process included a comprehensive market survey in order to fully understand the needs of the maritime SF units around the globe (FR Commando Hubert, UK SBS, US Navy Seals, GE Kampfschwimmer, and Italian COMSUBIN).
The Pike bag has several unique features, one of which is a Quick release dive weight plate (see picture X), which allows for a diver in case of an emergency to quickly release the weight, thus safely and efficiently reaching the surface. The bag also includes an independent air bladder that can be connected to a small dive tank. In case the diver deems himself too “heavy” because of all the equipment contained in the bag, the feature allows him the option to manually inflate additional air in the independent bladder, now affording him the perfect trim and buoyancy. The waterproof inner bag is covered with Velcro and furnished with 3 compartments for superb organization and space-saving capability.
What gives The Pike bag an added advantage is its versatility. Not only is it a waterproof diving bag, but it can also be used as a waterproof backpack in any small craft, high speed boat, jungle environment, and kayak by simply removing the diving equipment (bladder, tank, hose pressure).
The rigid aluminum frame always allows the diver to have a comfortable platform on his back when the bag is under pressure and squeezed. Moreover, the frame is both durable as it is lightweight, weighing in only
The bag features a heavy-duty carrying handle made out of industrial-type rubber which ensures dependability and durability even when completly loaded with diving equipment, including weight and miscellaneous content. In additional, the Pike bag has a strategically built-in strap to secure the bag either on a small craft, under the ship hull or during a swim exercise in a rough surf zone, thus securing it in place.
An external and collapsible net to carry wet suit after the change out is also included.
Every part of the Pike bag was designed with versatility, durability and practically in mind; hence all components are modular or removable.
