Great solid BC, the perfect size for our daughter. She has gone from being very uncomfortable in the water, to being completely at ease. Everything is where it needs to be for her to use. I would recommend this for anyone who has a pint size diver to kit out. Thank you also to the team at Scuba.com for being so helpful during our purchase.

Questions and Answers for Oceanic Explorer Youth BC:

  • kartar:

    does it have a breathing tank

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It does not. Tanks and regulators are a separate item.

  • Gordon:

    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

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

  • Matt:

    Dose it have built in weights?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Weights are not included with the BCs. This jacket is weight integrated with pockets to hold the weight.

  • Renas:

    I own two Oceanic Explorer BCDs in size 3XS is this a 2XS or XS? I am looking for two 2XS BCDs. Rena

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Renas, the size 8-10 is the size 3xs.

  • Dan:

    Does it have back weight pouches or other weight options – 10 lbs is not enough weight while wearing a 7 mil.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.
