Scuba Gear Reviews by Judith B.
Rating: Good BCD 01/29/2013
ive been a diver for over 10yrs and an instructor for over 5yrs and i like this bcd. its comfortable, good quality, has very large pockets for storing all the bits i need, d-rings and great integrated weight pockets which are easy to and click into place even when the bcd is on. dont get me wrong its not perfect - i find it a little more tricky to even out the weight on this so i can do a perfect level budda hover for my teaching, and the inflate button is so loud!! fish scarper when you press that thing....but for the money i have found it is one of the best performing bcds on the market.

I purchased this suit in a closeout sale and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It was shipped quickly by Scuba.com and upon open the package I noticed how thick and good quality the neoprene felt. I work as a Dive Instructor in the Caribbean and usually wear Scubapro wetsuits - the ladies small fits me perfectly, Im 53 - so I wanted to try Subgear as I heard the suits are well insulated and I was hoping it would fit the same, as ScubaPro and Subgear are owned by the same company. The fit as it turns out was similar and this suit is very warm. It really limits water movement in and out of the suit and the ankle and wrist zippers make donning and doffing easy. Overall this was a great buy and Im very happy.
