my weight 83kg and 178cm tall. which size B.C jaket fit for me? How much regulator and octo set? thanks kwang
1. For small size, what is its weight? 2. For small size, what is its buoyancy, i.e., buoyancy of the BC alone?
The bcd's weight is 6.3 lbs. We do not know it's buoyancy, but as with all bcd's when empty it's neutral to slightly negative. The lift capacity is 22 pounds. Other than the true weight of the unit, if you are worried about luggage weight, the other questions you are asking are not typically terribly significant.
Hi Bob, To my previous question, you answered 6.3 lbs. for the weight the small size BC. But the catalog description states 4.4 lbs. for medium size BC. So, you are off by nearly 2 lbs. Can you check it again? To me, the weight of any gears is the primary consideration. Most my dives are solo. The 13 cf. pony bottle with regulator that I take with me weighs 7 lbs. So,every oz. of weight reduction helps. At present, I carried 75 lbs. totally (all gears together).
Hi, would I be able to use this in cold water as well? It is labeled as a warm water/travel BC and I want to know if there is a reason for that other than the light weight. Thanks!
Hello Ben, yes you can use this in either warm or cold water diving. They designed this BCD to be a travel friendly BCD. Then when you think of travel diving you are thinking warm tropical diving. This is just a light weight BCD that doesn''t take up a lot or weight in your checked bag.
Looking for a Bc for my children (all in thier 20s) for Christmas is this BC suitable of my son as well as my daughters? Do you have a height weight chart for ordering sizes?
Hello, this is a unisex bc. There is a sizing chart right above the options box. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-2/006611/TUSA-Voyager-Travel-Light-BCJ-1800-BC.html

Independent Harness System (I.H.S.)
The Independent Harness System isolates the BC jacket's harness from the air cell, tightly supporting the tank even with changes in air cell inflation/deflation. The I.H.S. prevents tank slippage and eliminates any gaps between the tank and your back.
Ultimate Stabilizing Harness (U.S.H.)
TUSA's Ultimate Stabilizing Harness completely eliminates tank roll and delivers an amazing fit. The U.S.H. securely holds the air cylinder in place with optimally placed rails and brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight.
Service and Repair (BCJ)
Q: Can I get replacement AWLS pockets for my BCJ?
Yes, replacement Velcro and mechanical AWLS integrated weight pockets are available, please contact your TUSA authorized retailer.
Q: My BCJ bladder is leaking air or has been punctured, can it be patched?
Your BCJ will have to be evaluated to determine if the size and location of the puncture can be repaired. Please contact your local authorized TUSA retailer.
Q: What is the proper care and maintenance of my BC?
Rinse the outside and inside of the BCJ with warm fresh water thoroughly to stop the formation of salt crystals on vital components. This should be done as soon as possible post-dive and prior to allowing your BCJ to dry. Once rinsed, line dry completely and store partially inflated in a cool dry place away from heat, electric motors and other sources of ozone. To maintain the BCJ, annual service/inspection by an Authorized TUSA retailer is required. This is also a prerequisite to retain the warranty.
