1. I found the sizing in other website such as small, medium , large for this product. In this websire sizing is different as small/small, medium/large. I am 172cm, 70kg, waist 31". So I am looking for small. What do I need to buy? 2. I would like to know difference between Hybrid AT and Dragon AT. 3. In the comment above diving instructor mentioned that she would not recommned this to beginner. So doe it mean that Mares Hybrid is better for beginner instead of Hybrid AT? Please adivise.
We list the sizing exactly the way the manufacturer lists the sizing. Small would be the correct size for you. The differences are in the name, in a way. The Hybrid is what the manufacturers call a Hybrid bcd. This means it is a cross between a back inflation and a jacket style bcd with much less of the air cell wrapping around the torso than a jacket style bcd. The dragon is a traditional jacket-style bcd.
