Rating: Nice Backpad
Reviewer: Linc P.,
I ordered a Zeagle Backplate a few weeks ago after the first dive I found the metal plate had scuffed my dry suit. I ordered the Backpad to keep the metal off the dry suit, it has a nice fit and easy attachment all in all it works well.

I was really dissapointed in this backplate pad. I am a Zeagle fan, they always have some of the better quality and reliability. Spend your money wisely, buy another brand that allows more options for tank height, bolts or secures to the backplate on the edges, etc... It does keep the plate off your back though.... for what its worth

Are Zeagle BC’s worn differently?
Yes. Because of the uniqueness of the design, the Zeagle System will fit quite differently from a conventional BC. The waistband will be lower, well below the diaphragm (so it won’t restrict your breathing), the front of the BC is open, reducing restrictions further, and the buoyancy is low down on the back and sides, where it can expand outward without compressing your chest. The result is greater comfort and a more balanced attitude in the water.
What’s the Personal Fit System? People come in more than five sizes- the Personal Fit System is a system of interchangeable components that allows your Zeagle dealer to custom fit a buoyancy system to your body and your style of diving. In addition to fitting waist size, chest size, and torso length independently, we can adjust the style of various components and the amount of lift in the buoyancy system to match the type of diving you do.
What about construction and warranty? All Zeagle Buoyancy Systems are hand sewn from the best available materials and heavily reinforced at all stress points. Our style of construction is labor intensive and expensive, but it results in a more durable, better fitting BC. Individual components of the system are replaceable or repairable if damaged. This quality of construction makes it possible for us to offer a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. If a defect appears or the system fails at any time while you own it, Zeagle will repair or replace the system free of charge.
