HOLLIS to Unveil new SMS50 SPORT Sidemount System at DEMA Show

Submitted by: Hollis Gear
Released on: Oct 22, 2012

Hollis "SMS" sidemount systems have been designed not just for cave divers, but any sidemount diver. The new SMS50 Sport is no exception. Built for sidemount only, this new kit can has been developed primarily for open water divers with hose routing over the shoulder matching traditional bcd’s. Includes an adjustable, one size fits most harness based on a minimalist design and ideal for traveling divers. First of its kind harness, wing and plate in one and ready to dive out of the box.

The benefits of sidemount are wide reaching. Full visibility of your system is one of the main advantages. Tanks, valves and regulators are all within eyesight and adjustable both on the surface and at depth. Sidemount also reduces additional gear. Whether sidemounting a single tank or doubles, any dive boat or dive center supports AL80’s. This means your doubles bands, backplate and manifold are gone which is a huge benefit when traveling. This is also an advantage when transporting gear to and from the beach or boat, which is now one tank at a time. Lastly, sidemount streamlines your profile which in turn reduces drag increasing bottom time and overall comfort.

Although weighing in at just 5lbs, the SMS50 Sport is constructed of rugged 1000 Denier Cordura. Includes a 23lbs wing and harness that is one size fits most. Another unique feature about this harness is the weight system -fully integrated. There are 3lb pouches on the left and right sides just below the waist strap (unit does not include the 5lbs trim pocket found on the SMS50). Comes with neoprene shoulder straps, (2) tank bungees, (2) stainless steel cam bands, (4) stainless steel bolt snaps and HD nylon line. Ready to dive out of the box!

The SMS50 Sport will be displayed at DEMA SHOW 2012 and available in USA Hollis dealers in time for Christmas. Contact your local Hollis dealer to pre-order now!
