Questions and Answers for Sherwood Ventura Travel Light BC:
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?

Hello Brent, yes this will stand up just like the non-travel BCD's. They are made the same way as the other BCD's it just that its lighter for travel use.
The new Ventura is designed from the ground up to be the best BC in its class. At only 4.7 pounds, it’s much more than the typical lightweight BC. The Ventura is rugged, extremely compact, exceptionally stable, and features our uniquely designed integrated weight release system.
