Reviewer: Aaron Cornett on 9/9/2007No longer renting - I recently pruchased a Zeagle Ranger BC from SCUBA.COM. I was very pleased with the service, including an attempt at price matching with a different online company (who did not have my size in stock). The Zeagle Ranger is a great piece of kit. Very comfortable. Very adjustable. Very well made. As a point of comparison, it is a little bulky when packing it into a bag. I love the integrated weights, although it does make for a heavy piece of gear when everything is loaded.
Reviewer: Cody A. on 7/1/2014Does the job, but... - THE BC WING STATES THAT IT WILL FIT BOTH DOUBLES AND SINGLES. WITH DOUBLES IT DOES OK AND DOESNT TACO TO BAD. ITS EASY TO DUMP THE AIR, AND THE AIR DOESNT BECOME TRAPPED ANYWHERE. HOWEVER WITH SINGLE THE WING CAN BECOME A BIT OF A PAIN. THE WING TACOS LIKE CRAZY, AND THERE IS NO WAY TO FASTEN ANYTHING TO KEEP IT IN PLACE. WHEN IT TACOS IT CAN BECOME DIFFICULT TO GET THE AIR OUT OF THE WING AND FORCING YOU TO ROLL OR TWIST TO GET THE BUBBLE MOVE
Reviewer: Bobby Wisdom on 11/12/2014Hollis Backplate Review - $109.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - The Hollis aluminum backplate is well made, perfectly finished, fits exactly with my STA on a Halcyon wing. Lighter than some other aluminum backplates, it still has held up with no dents or dings after a week of live-aboard diving in the Pacific, all done from skiffs. Lots of tank handling was done by others, Im really impressed by the way the plate resisted damage.
Reviewer: keith martin on 9/17/2014Zeagle 911 BC Review - $869.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Great bc. Fits well, really like the rear weight system. This is my second zeagle tech. Will definitely by another when this one goes in another 13 years
Reviewer: Don Rhodes on 12/3/2007Great heavy duty BCD - This is a very well made BCD with features that made it easy to use including weight bags that are easy to put into the zippered pockets, extra weight pockets in the rear of the BCD next to the tank and several rings to attach stuff. It is a long tested design, fits well and, most important, works well in the water. As with most SCUBA gear, you need to decide where and how you plan to use it. I spend most of the year diving with a heavy duty dry suit. The BCD, with its lift, is great for that. Because of its design and fit it should also be fine for the trips to the tropics. Like all divers I ask others about their gear. There are a lot of Zeagle Rangers on dive boats. All the...View Full Review
Reviewer: Dyana W. on 4/6/2012Way comfortable. - Really does make the Express Tech much more comfortable! Doesnt add much in the way of weight or interfere with drying.
