Sherwood Avid BC
The new AVID 400 Series features the widely regarded CQR-3 weight release system providing more convenience and ease when installing and removing the pockets. The redesigned styling of this traditional jacket-style AVID maintains it's respected functionality, comfort and dependability. The AVID CQR-3 is a natural progression in Sherwood's forward-moving product innovation.

The Avid 400 Series has made several improvements over its predecessor:
*New webbing allows for smoother shoulder and waist strap adjustments
*Newly designed trim weight pockets provide better accessibility and easier trim weight adjustments
*New exhaust valves provide refreshing and contemporary look.
This jacket-style BC wraps air completely around you for easy floatation. When fully inflated, the 3-D air cell and the suspension strap system combines to create a stable and secure fit that is designed to eliminate squeeze. The CQR-3 system provides a simple and reliable means to carry weights on the BC. Balanced for comfortable swimming body position. Improved forward buckle location eases loading of weight pockets.
