Difference between Rapid Diver Sport, Rapid Diver Tactical/Responder and the Rapid Diver MILPRO

Post by Rapid Diver on Wed Jul 01, 2009 9:56 am

There are three different Rapid Diver Systems. This post will help define the major differences.

Rapid Diver Sport:



Rapid Diver Tactical/Responder:



Rapid Diver MILPRO:



MILPRO with Rebreather Module (RB)


The Rapid Diver Tactical/Responder and MILPRO are built for the diving professional. The Rapid Diver Sport is built with the recreational diver and yacht owner.

The Rapid Diver Tactical and Responder and Rapid Diver MILPRO is sole source and only available from SubSeaTactical.com the Rapid Diver Sport is available from any Zeagle dealer.

The Rapid Diver Tactical/Responder and MILPRO is built in the USA (Sport is constructed in China). I do not recommend the Rapid Diver Sport for professional use for many reasons. Note: The name "Tactical" is used for Law Enforcement and the term "Responder" is used for Fire/Rescue.

If you are using a Rapid Diver Sport for professional purposes, my recommendation is to upgrade to the Rapid Diver Tactical or Rapid Diver Responder. It is possible to upgrade certain parts of the Rapid Diver Sport to make more like the Tactical/Responder. You can PM me for an upgrade kit.

The MILPRO is the newest Rapid Diver model was developed for the US Navy. This version provides not only a universal fit, but also provides universal dive capabilities.

The Rapid Diver MILPRO excels at front mount, back mount, and now side mount tank capabilities as well as front mount and back mount rebreather capability (Rapid RB module).

Bladder is larger on the MIPRO, here are some pictures of the two units side by side:







Note: The MIPRO is also designed to be a dedicated swimmers vest when the life support is removed and the tank pad is folded back behind the unit. The tank pad is held in place by the large Velcro patches.

Haven't tried it out...but it should work as a front mounted double hose.
