Tecline Donut 15 Wing
The Tecline Donut 15 wing is a classic design for single tank divers who believe, "If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it." Tecline has kept the design, made it more durable and added some innovations to boot!
The Donut 15’s oval shape is a tried and tested design that allows for easy operation in any position with free unobstructed flow of air between the sides, top and bottom, when shifting the air around the bc for compensation. It boasts a lift capacity of 15kgs / 33lbs to provide positive buoyancy on surface. Built with special Heavy Duty Nylon 1000D, the soft outer shell is extremely durable and resistant to snags & tears. Marine grade YKK zip reveals an interior bladder made of Nylon 840 with high resistance to aging and cracking. A reinforced inflator elbow loop with wide webbing strip, is placed to the left of the wing so as not to interfere with the cylinder's valve. The wing also comes with a detachable integrated single tank stabiliser, which helps to hold the cylinder straight when used without a full-sized single tank adapter (STA). An OPV dump valve is situated at an easy-to-locate position, convenient for the release of gas when diver is horizontal or upside down. Grommet holes on the exterior allows for easy drainage of water, when packing up after a dive. The wing comes with a 55cm / 22inch Proflex braided inflator hose and 2 corrugated hoses (30cm & 40cm, 40cm installed) to customize to your preferences.
Tecline's wings are fully compatible with most backplates from other manufacturers, as long as there are mounting holes on the backplate 28cm / 11inch apart (center to center of grommet hole), for mounting with a single tank adapter (STA). They can also be used without an STA, by threading a tank cam-band though the slots on both the wing and backplate.
