Im newly PADI certified and am looking to purchase scuba equipment. I understand the attraction with this BC being lightweight and portable for travel however given its reduced weight and its portability, Im wondering about its durability. i.e. will it stand up to regular use to the same degree as onder BCs? thanks
The new Ventura is an extremely versatile BCD. This lightweight back inflation BC which weighs less than 5 lbs is fantastic for travel . But it is also a great BCD for local diving as well. Whether diving in Cozumel or Catalina the Ventura is designed from the ground up to be the best BC in class.
At only 4.7 pounds, it’s much more than the typical lightweight BC. The Ventura aircell is made of Double Coated TPU, which basically means it doesn't absorb any water and it doesn't gain water weight after repeated dives, a real plus when traveling. This Double Coated TPU material is extremely durable, and as a result we are able to increase the warranty on the bladder from Two years to Five years.
The Ventura is rugged, extremely compact, exceptionally stable, and features our uniquely designed integrated weight release system.
The QDS Weight System is a very simple yet effective weight system that allows 16 pounds of ditchable weight.
More features. Less weight. Perfect for travel.
