I am a new diver. A dozen or so dives. I am a big guy. 511 270 54 chest, 40 waist. What size BCD XXL or XL. That being said, I am more interested in buying something that is the best rather than how much it costs. 006272 Sherwood Avid CQR3 BCD 2XLarge ? What would you recommend? Thank You
Hi there, I was about to buy this BCD yesterday at $260, ive come back today and the price is now at $499. Is there a reason for this? If you could let me know if its possible to do the previous price again as soon as possible as im looking at putting in a big order now that includes this BCD. Regards, Adam

Im am a big guy looking to buy my first BC. Im 64, 300 lbs, 54" Chest, 46" waist. The 3X-5X size seams like my only choice, but the waist on the size chart says 52"-64"?? I could order the 2X but I always run into problems with things fitting my shoulders and chest. Any suggestions on the size, or other BCs that might be a better fit??
i want to take a scuba diving course at my university, i was wondering what size would be great for me im 510 220lbs ive never used any like this so idk if the LG or xLG will fit better
What would be the best Regulator to get to go with this BCD.
Hello Michael, this regulator: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-36/033033/Atomic-Z2-Regulator.html would work very well with this BCD.
Why does the website still list the CDR3 as having the "handy little pocket" on the right foe a SMB or as I used to put in it my defog. I had the CDR2 and now the have the "3" and its the thing I miss the most although the redesign of the main weight pockets is fantastic and worth it. I lost weight and needed a new BC. Dont really want this posted, just noticed that after my new BC arrived and I was surprised by the omission on the new design, guess with a huge website little things are easy to overlook especially when they make no design sense.
I need some help on sizing, I fall in between the small/medium ranges. Im 5 7", 140 lbs, waist 29"
i purchased 3XL BCD in may 2013 love it but this summer i broke one of the zipper tabs on the weigtht puoches and am wondering if i can buy a replacement pouch and how much as the weight puches for my bc are 13lbs per side
I have been using an Avid CQR2 for several years and like it, except for one aspect - my neck frequently gets chafed by the top edge. Is the Avid CQR3 scooped lower at top back, or better padded? Cant tell from the photos.
Currently I have a 40" waist, but Ive been on a work-out program and I plan to get down to a 30" waist. If I bought a large, and I reach my goal of 30", would a large still work, or should I wait and see what I achieve?
Hi there! Im a female who is 178cm in height and fairly athletic, but I wasnt sure whether to go with a XS or S. Ive been using an Aqualung for rent and Ive been using a S. Any thoughts?
The most important measurement will always be your waist measurement first. The bcd has to fit your torso properly in order to remain secure and comfortable through the dive. Height is about the last consideration unless you are out of the normal ranges for height/size (such as a tall thin basketball player), as the bcd is very adjustable.
I have a 13-year old Mares BC which isnt weight integrated any more since I lost the front pouches long ago and never found functional replacements. Also, I want to move away from back inflation since it isnt stable on the surface. I like the look and features of this model and the comments sound very positive. What size would you recommend? I am 6 0" tall, waist 38-40, weight 220. Thanks.
How much does this BC weigh? Is it a good selection for travel diving, which is all I do since Pennsylvania diving is not so desirable? Are there any other BCs you recommend besides this model for a pure recreational diver? I like the price, features and reviews. Thanks, Tom
Question Im 61 260 what size BCDis best what makes up the difference from xl to xxl is it the waist belt or is bcd bigger in general?
hi, Thanks for quick reply for sizing question.but if I follow the manufactur sizing chart.I am 58 tall and only 115 lbs and 29" waist.I am very slim.As your answer before,i should go for medium size.is that too big for me?cause i only fit one requirement of medium size.Thanks for answer me again.
When purchasing a new bcd you always go by the Waist measurement first and most importantly. In this case, based on your info I''d recommend a size Small.
Does this model come with a crotch strap? If not is that something that is an add on? What is the difference between this years model and last years?
What is yalls return policy? Im a big guy, and if I buy one and doesnt fit properly or for one reason or another.
Hello, we have an excellent return policy. Here is the link below. http://www.scuba.com/ads/shipping.aspx#return

hello , can anyone tell me on the Sherwood Avid CQR3 BC, what the measurements are ? it has been my experience that 2xl and up only add length to the straps and cumberbund,, but the bcs remains the same size. i am a large human 65 360 lbs , waist 48 chest 58 , my bcds ride too high and do not wrap around my midsection enough .,, this tends to place the second stage and the pockets as well as any attachment points around near my back as opposed to my front thank you

Safe use of BC’s with integrated weights requires a complete understanding of their operation and limitations.

Failure to understand and act appropriately could result in serious injury or death.
