Rating: Perfect Travel Wing
Reviewer: Vincent E.  -  View all my reviews
In short, this is a light weight travel wing with high durability. I have done a more than a few dives on this wing, and after getting used to it, everytime I dive now, I feel like I am not wearing a bcd. It has a very low profile, no clutter in front of me, just perfect all round. Sadly, Hollis only added one dump value on the bottom. Additionally, if you plan to get this bcd, consider getting 2 weight pockets to attach on the tank strap. Overall, I would recommend this bcd especially if you travel a lot.

Rating: Hollis Ride Travel BCD
Reviewer: Azman J.
An excellent BCD. Cuts a very flat profile underwater. And there is noticeably less drag underwater as a result. Mounts perfectly so that my head doesnt hit the first stage, which was a problem with my previous DiveRite. I bought the 37lb wing version. My only complaint is that its quite large and not that light. But I guess this is because its designed to be able to take doubles. Nevertheless this doesnt affect the excellent performance of this BCD. Very maneuverable and low drag. Highly recommended.

Questions and Answers for Hollis Ride Travel BCD:


  • LENNY:

    Hello! It looks good. Do you think its recommendable to me who travel much(by plane) and like UW Photo? Can you recommend alternatives to me? According to your website, you give the Discount if I buy "Ride BCD + XS Scuba Octo" or "Octo + Dive Alert Plus". But there is no DC in My Cart when I put them together(in my choice by scolling). Anyway how much should I pay if I buy "Ride BC+XS Scuba Octo+Dive Alert Plus" together? Will you assemble Ride BC and XS Scuba Octo if I buy them together and ask to do so before shipping? Thanks!

    Hello Lenny, your sub-total should be $627.85. If you also get a 1st Stage we would be able to put your gear together. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Keng, The LIFT: 23lb or 37lb Your wearing 3kg that's 6.6 pounds. You could use the 23lb or 37lb lift. The 23lb air cell is just a smaller bc.
