The OMS Silicone Retraction Bands is a 12 pack of 13 inch long, 1/4 inch diameter silicone tubing is used in conjunction with any OMS wings that have retraction bands (compression straps). Great item to have in your save a dive kit. They are a great item, you will find yourself using them for a lot more than on just your wing.
What are the benefits to using OMS Silicone Retraction Bands?
The unique OMS elastomeric bands assist in deflation, but still allow the diver to orally inflate the BC.
The bands typically retract the BC to a width less than the diver's shoulders greatly reducing Drag and Snag potential.
The bands evenly compress the BC, eliminating the massive air shift associated with non-banded BCs that typically occurs when changing body plane. By adding or eliminating bands in different parts of the BC, the diver can adjust:
Lateral trim to compensate for stage bottles, cameras, etc.
Horizontal trim e.g. head up, down or level.
