    The 35lb wing is a little small. During my training my fellow student removed his pack at the surface with the wing fully inflated and it promptly sunk.

    euh... unless the diver attaches a lot of extra weight to the unit, the unit floats when the wing is inflated.. of course it does (it is ment to float with the wing inflated)

    I guess your student was part of the buoyance equation, therefore needing tonnes of weight to get down, of which it was attached to the rEvo directly and not on a weight belt?

    Otherwise, he/she might have sunk instead of the rEvo when the unit was removed.

    I put a Nomad on my rEvo a long time ago. I was just wondering about the factory wing as I was trying to find a use for it.
