The Axiom i3 is our most comfortable and easy-to-use BC yet. It is a feature-rich, ADV style, wrap-around jacket that incorporates the innovative i3 inflation/deflation system (patented). The integrated Wrapture™ harness system (pat. pend.) allows you to stand up straight in total comfort while the cylinder remains perfectly vertical and pulled in close. Diving has never been this comfortable.
The GripLock™ tank band and buckle system makes its debut on the Axiom i3. This strong, secure system makes attachment to a cylinder easier than ever before. Gone are the days of complicated web weaving and you don't have to worry about pinching your fingers with the innovative finger saver feature (pat. pend.)
The Wrapture™ harness system, using the shoulder swivel buckles (patented) and a customized back plate, provides comfort and stability while preventing "ride-up" at the surface
The i3 Control System (patented) provides single touch control for inflation and deflation.
The low profile flat e-valves (pat. pend.) all open simultaneously when the i3 lever is depressed.
The GripLock™ tank band and buckle system provides security and easy change out of cylinders.
SureLock II weight pouches (patented) provide a simple, single-pull release. Loading is as simple as insert and "click".
Pull down oral inflator is easy to deploy, use and stow.
A bladder retraction system is used to pull in the sides of the bladder during deflation
An adjustable chest strap can be raised or lowered on a rail system.
A scooped octo-pocket on the top, front of the right lobe makes it easy to stow and deploy an octopus. The octopus remains visible and accessible throughout the dive.
Some divers may find it useful to run their instruments behind the left pocket and out the scooped opening on the top, front of the lobe.
Pocket within a pocket – A small security pocket is found on the flap of a larger drop-down pocket
Knife attachment points are found on the left lobe
Features 5 stainless steel D-rings and 2 plastic D-rings for all of your accessories.
Right shoulder pull dump
Rolled neck collar for comfort

This is the first BCD I have owned. After renting BCs, it is great to have my own that I can set up as I like it. The i3 system is a breakthrough technology and so much better than fumbling to find the corrugated hose. It means I can easily control my buoyancy no matter whether facing upwards or downwards. It makes the old system seem antiquated!
