Apeks, the company that produces the premiere line of technical dive gear, offers you a top of the line sidemount harness system. The WSX is a feature rich, complete sidemount harness system. The WSX comes complete with either a 25lbs or 45lbs bladder, harness with crotch strap, D-rings, bungee and accessory butt pack.


The bladder is constructed from Armoguard, a super-tough material normally found in public safety diving and military products. This smooth material is ten times more abrasion resistant than standard Cordura (the material used on many other sidemount harness bladders), making this a wing designed with serious sidemount diving in mind. 

The Apeks “SlideLock” sliding D-ring is brand new and unique to Apeks. It allows the diver to easily change the position of the cylinders as their buoyancy changes during the dive. No need to clip your cylinder on and off, simply adjust the position of the D-ring during your dive.

The two-piece plate system is adjustable to nearly any torso length, making this a one size fits all system. The system also has individual webbing sections rather than one long piece running through the harness, which means the complete system can be quickly and easily adjusted.
