The Fishtail is stiffened internally to provide a cylinder separation platform and features 4 high-tensile welded stainless D-rings 

The Fishtail has been specifically designed to fit onto any AP rebreather* by means of the central case bolt (3 eyelets in the 50mm webbing allow height adjustment) and 2 adjustable side-straps that feed around the harness

The AP Fishtail can also be attached to many other brands’ backpack and harness systems and used in any technical or sport diver configuration

The AP Fishtail is ideally suited for use with any of the AP73 series Stage Cylinder Band Kits which feature front and rear brass trigger hooks to clip cylinders to D rings
