How does octopus store on vest? Is back padded for tank comfort? Weight?
Hello Lance, Thank you for your inquiry! To secure an octopus to the Oceanic Explorer Youth Scuba BC, you’ll notice in the picture, below the right shoulder cinching strap< a plastic “D’ Ring. http://www.scuba.com/shop/display.asp_id_005301 That is where you would place on of the following Octo Holders: The SCUBA Breakaway Scuba Octo Holder http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-98/032634/Scuba-Breakaway-Octo-Holder.html The SCUBAMAX Scuba Octo Holder http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-37/131495/Scubamax-Octo-Holder.html The Princeton Tec Scuba Octo Holder Snap http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-98/030457/Princeton-Tec-Octo-Holder.html If you would like to place an order, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I size for my son. He is 11. Can we buy a BCD for his size but a regulator that he will be able to use as he grows? What will he need to get. We are signed up for cert classes but Im trying to figure what to get him and how much it will cost. He does not have anything yet. Trying to save some money. Thanks Gordon
Hello Gordon, when you are sizing this BCD for your son you are going to go by is weight and height. As for the 1st, 2nd, octo, and gauge/computer equipment. That is gear that he will be able to use for years to come as long and you keep up the service on the equipment. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Im 86 lbs and I need 16 lbs of weight, will it fit it all? thanks!
Hello Rene, this will only hold 10 lbs. of weight. If you are looking to hold 16 lbs then you would need: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-2/006521/Oceanic-EX-100-BC.html in size XSmall.
Does it have back weight pouches or other weight options – 10 lbs is not enough weight while wearing a 7 mil.
Hello Dan, no the BCD does not have trim pouches. You would also not want to add trim pouches to this BCD. If you did that then when you go to inflate the BCD it will not lift you. You would need to look at different BCD that have a higher weight capacity.
