Our 2.0 backplate line is the foundation for the new Hollis technical harness systems. Both feature improved ergonomics for a more comfortable fit, but are still short enough to fit smaller frame divers. The aluminum version weighs in at 1.5lbs or just under a Kilo. Both are laser cut and CNC bent, which give this awesome new appearance.
The stainless version is 304 stainless and has a bead blast finish to avoid scratching, so it will continue to look this way after many years of use. The Aluminum version is laser cut from 6061 aluminum and hard anodized in black for a marine grade finish.
Geometry of the webbing slots is similar to our prior design to ensure reverse compatibility for all Hollis buoyancy accessories, so if you have a current Hollis harness, wing or weight system, this new plate will fit.
Both of these are available individually and as part of the new 2021 tech systems.
