Hi gang! 


I am looking at exchanging my good old 32lb OMS wing for something smaller and more streamlined. 


I have been looking at the 18lb travelwing from Apeks, does anyone have any experience with it and do you know if it will fit the standard aluminum OMS plate?

Or do you have any other recommendations for a wing which is smaller than 20lb? 


As always your help is much appreciated! :)

my main bcd is a Zeagle Ranger LTD, very sturdy and comfortable but heavy
I had a Hollis Travelwing and have a OMS Travelwing, both nice made and less than 5 lbs light wings.

The Apeks WTX-D18 looks nice, streamlined and made of 1000 Cordura

This guy makes nice stuff, I dive one of his wings for 7 years now. Not a single problem so far. A friend has one for the doubles, also no problems. 


If you need a smaller one, he makes a 12lbs wing as well. :)




Current setup: Olympus OMD-EM5, NA-EM5 + accessories.

I own a WTX-4 (45 lbs) that I mostly use with single steel 15L and sometimes

with double steel 12L down to 60m. I have used it for a few years now and still

looks as new.


This D18 might be a good product.
