Hello Adam, Thank you for your inquiry! I'm recommending the Mares Hybrid Pro Tec Scuba BC over the TUSA Conquest ScubaBC BCJ-7000. The BCD's are very similar to each other in Form, Function and fit. But what makes the Mares BCD superior to the TUSA is the integrated weight pocket locking system. I owned a similar TUSA BCD with their locking weight system. Sliding the weight pockets into the slots was easy... It was the weight pocket locking mechanism that was difficult to manipulate. The Mares Locking system was simple. All you do is slide the male portion of the pocket into the receiving slot and listen for the "click"! When you hear the click, you know the weight pocket is securely fastened into the BCD. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-2/006842/Mares-Hybrid-Pro-Tec-Scuba-BC.html If you would like to place an order or have questions about our products, 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

Hello Lee, because of your height I would put you into a size medium/large.
My name is Eirik and I live in Norway.
Just starting my "divingcareer", therefore I am looking for a BCD.
What size do You recomend?
I am tall, 6 3", aprox 40" round my waist and aprox 17" across my chest.
Will size XL fit me?
Do You ship to Norway?
Any idea on the shipping cost?
Regards Eirik :-)

Hybrid Pro Tec A giant step in the evolution of back mounted BCDs
• Made with alutex, sturdy and durable • Modular integrated weight system • 10 metal D-rings, 3 of which customizable
The first thing you will notice when donning Hybrid Pro Tec is the perfect fit. This new level of comfort is achieved via special shoulder pads which are longer, pre-shaped and reinforced, and work in perfect unison with the lumbar suspension system. Hybrid Pro Tec feature 10 metal D-rings, 3 of which can be slid up and down along the shoulder pads, to accommodate any configuration needs. Made of very tough Alutex material, it will endure any exposure you submit it to and hold up to the test of time. Furthermore, Hybrid Pro Tec is a modular BCD: the detacheable vest comprising the MRS plus system is removable, leaving a lean-and-mean travel BCD. This configuration can be expanded by adding the optional lumbar trim weight system and/or the Cruise Add-on pocket.
All current in line Mares B.C.D.s are compatible up to 40% Oxygen (EAN 40) right out of the box.
Air cell separated from the harness, resulting in unrestricted freedom of movement.
The standard inflation and deflation control device used in PADI training programs. Intuitive use and secure grip.
Ideal for traveling thanks to its reduced dimensions when packed and its marked weight reduction compared to a traditional backpack. Integrated rubber pads provide secure grip of the tank and carrying comfort.
Inspired by the design of modern hiking backpacks, the system avoids direct contact between body and tank support.
