Is there any chest measurements for this bcd? Im a little waist guy with a big chest and have problems going off of the chart for sizing. Thank You
In sizing the Sherwood Avid CQR2 BCD, I am 62" and 210 pounds with a 35" waist and 46" chest. Will the large fit me better or the XL? If the size is not correct and we return and get the correct size? Thanks, Albert
This one is correct my height What size would I be? I am 64"(5-4") weight 142 waist is 34. chest is 36. Thanks.
Hello Thomas, when you are sizing a BCD the 2 most important measurements are your Height and Waist. Chest is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you would take into account. With a height of 5''4" and waist of 34" would put you into a size small. If you want you would also fit into a size Medium but going by your measurement I think the best fit would be a size Small. But if you are not sure go with the size medium.
50" chest, 40 waist -what is my bcd size and what with octo means at the description thanks
Hello Juan, how tall are you? With that measurements of 40" waist you fall in 3 different sizes.
I like paying about $150 less for the 2013 model than the new, redesigned version in this bcd. But am I giving up a lot by buying the older version as compared to the new one which sells for $499? Also, I am 60", weight 220, waist 38-40. Would that be a large in the 2013 model? Thanks.
Do you keep digital copies of the product manuals online? I am thinking about getting this for my BF, but I just want more detail than is included in the product description.
I purchased an AVID CQR-3 a couple of years ago. The zippers are shot on the removable weight pouches. Do you sell replacements. If so, cost ? THX - Mike
Hello Mike, the pockets you are looking for are the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-5/004625/Sherwood-CQR-3-Weight-Pocket---Single.html.
I am trying to size my BC vest. I am 5-10" 140 pounds waist is 29-30 chest is 39-40 what size should I get?
Hello Peter, going by your size I would suggest a size Large. Waist and Height are the most important measurement.
Does it come with weights? I need 30 pounds. Should I buy 6 packs of 5lb or 10 packs of 3lb?
I just recently was certified and used the new model of this vest. They fitted me with a large, I am 65" 225 and 35" waist. That does not seem to fit with the sizing chart. The large seemed to fit fin during class. Do you have any different recommendations.
Your waist leans to the medium pretty solidly, but your weight leans more to the large size. The bcd is extremely adjustable. The straps and cummerbund can be adjusted on the inside of the jacket, at the back near the backplate to be made smaller or larger as needed. This should help customize the fit a bit better. If you have trouble you can contact our instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can probably walk you thought the process a bit more easily.
The new AVID CQR-2 features an updated weight release system providing more convenience and ease when installing and removing the pockets. The redesigned styling of the traditional jacket-style AVID maintains it's respected functionality, comfort and dependability. The AVID CQR-2 is a natal progression in Sherwood's forward-moving product innovation.
WARNING! Safe use of BC’s with integrated weights requires a complete understanding of their operation and limitations. Consult the BC operating manual and your diving instructor to be certain you understand how to weight yourself properly and what to do in an emergency. Failure to understand and act appropriately could result in serious injury or death.
