This weight belt was obviously designed with a lot of diver input. On the zippered weight belts, once the zipper dies, it becomes useless. The gusseted pockets for EACH weight have large flaps that securely close with Velcro so that you can safely dive in a head down posture where applicable without worrying about your weights sliding out of the pockets. The instructor for whom this belt was bought has been diving since the 80s and appreciated the arrangement of the pockets around the divers sides, so they would not be slipping under your tank. The pockets are held away from the center back with adjustable metal stays on the belt.
Using you own hardware, this is easy to mount and easy to read at a stoplight or parking lot (or heavy, slow traffic). It does not hurt either that the color scheme IS Red, White, and Blue. I like ours.
