I like the looks of this BC but I see that it only has a 20 lb releasable weight limit but no mention of upper or back pockets for non releasable weight. I dive with 26 lbs and wanted to know if there was any standard weight pockets or how else to overcome the weight difference. Thanks! Mark
Hello Mark, yes this BCD will only hold 20 lbs. in the front 2 (10 lbs per) pocket. If you are looking to add a few pockets in the back along the tank strap: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-225/044049/XS-Scuba-Trim-Diving-Weight-Tank-Pouch.html. This would hold up to an extra 5 lbs (per pocket). 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.

Patented QLR (Quick Lock & Release) Weight Integration System
The OceanPro may be purchased with or without Oceanic's patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System. If you choose not to buy them with your BC, you will have 2 additional storage pockets and may add the QLR Weight Pockets at any time. Your weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, our patented 'positive-lock' system helps to ensure that they'll stay put.
Fadeless 500 Denier Ballistic Nylon Construction
The OceanPro air cell is welded from a fadeless 500 denier nylon. Exterior abrasion points are covered in our fadeless 1600 denier ballistic nylon - tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that 'new look' longer.
Alliance Integrated Inflator
Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Alliance Integrated Inflator provides a full range of airway exhaust/inflation control. Simply press a button to produce precise flow for trimming dive attitude or maximum flow for major changes in buoyancy. A large exhaust valve creates a flow rate higher than the inflation rate of the power inflator, improving diver control during ascents.
Oceanic's cummerbund offers up to 8' of adjustment to fit a wide range of sizes. For additional customization, the cummerbund may be easily changed with another size.
Extra heavy duty padding provides comfort both above and below the surface without having to sacrifice the stability of a hard backpack.
2 Large Main Pockets
Enough room to store your OceanPro Light, extra Shadow Mask, Pocket Snorkel, or P.S.D.!
