Reviewer: Frank C.
Love the freedom of movement this BC offers. The release air valve makes adjusting and dumping air simple. No more having to hold a tube just right to get air out. Love the pocket that holds the safe second out of the way. Feeding the lines through the back of the vest keeps the lines close, neat and less likely to get pulled on external debris. This is the vest for anyone who hates to feel bulky.

Questions and Answers for Aqua Lung SeaQuest Lotus i3 Womens BC:

  • Amy:

    Im deciding between the soul i3 and the lotus i3. I am a new diver and this is my first bcd. Which one should I choose and why one over the other Also, is a back float device or a all around air device the better choice? Im a size small. Thanks, Amy

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    The wrap around design will allow you float at the surface easier and is usually more comfortable.

  • susan:

    Hello Susan, for the Passport and Lotusi you are looking at around 8 lbs. For the Zuma and the Libra you are looking at 4 lbs. 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.

  • Kent:

    My stepdaughter is getting certified this June. I want to get her a BC that will do a good job for her. She is not a Barbie doll girl, and we are having a hard time finding a BC to fit her. She has a "spare tire" and that is what makes fitting difficult. Would the Lotus i3 be a good jacket to fix our problem?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Kent, when you size a BCD the two most important measurements are your waist and height.

  • janet:

    ok so how do I know what weights to buy for this bcd that I just ordered??

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    It will allow for the use of any type of scuba lead in it''s weight pockets.

  • victoria:

    Can you manually inflate the BC on the surface (without using tank air)?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Yes. The manual inflation tube is stowed away at the left shoulder.

  • Heather:

    Im a new diver and am still perfecting my buoyancy. I am interested in purchasing the Aqua Lung SeaQuest Lotus Womens BC. I do not want the back inflation only type because I am concerned it will force me forward when I am on the surface. In the description of this product it doesnt say what kind of inflation type it is and it resembles the back inflation type. If it inflates both in front ad back that would be fine. Please let me know, Thank you Heather

    Chance  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hi Heather, this is a back-inflate BCD.

  • janet:

    does the BC come with the weights as well

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Bcd''s do not come with the weights. Weights are a separate purchase.

The Lotus i3 is the latest installment in our fine line of ladies' BCs. It is a back inflation BC with an integrated i3 inflation / deflation system that is designed and styled just for women.

  • The Wrapture Harness System not only hugs the contours of the female body providing superior comfort and stability, it also supports the scuba cylinder in a way that has never been more comfortable to the diver
  • Single touch control for both inflation and deflation. Lift up to inflate, push down to deflate. What could be more simple?
  • The integrated i3 control system provides a single touch control for both inflation and deflation
  • Flat e-valves are very streamlined and effective. They are also 'one-way' which keeps water out
  • The multiple dump features means that when you depress the i3 lever, all of the flat e-valves open at once! No more reaching for the wrong valve
  • Custom backpack is thin to keep cylinder close to your center of gravity and efficiently distributes the cylinder weight
  • The Wrapture Harness System works in conjunction with the shoulder swivel buckles (patented) to prevent ride-up and support the weight pockets
  • The patented SureLock II weight system provides a simple, single pull release. Loading is as simple as insert and 'click'
  • Pull down oral inflator is easy to deploy and stow
  • A strong retractor band is used to pull in the sides of the bladder while deflating keeping you streamlined
  • An adjustable chest strap can be raised and lowered on a rail system
  • HP and MP hose routings through the back keep your entire kit low profile thus minimizing drag
  • All sizes are capable of holding up to 30 lbs / 13.5 kg of lead weight
