Jacket style systems are the most popular among recreational scuba divers and offer divers comforting support at the surface as well as excellent performance and are what most scuba divers used to learn to scuba dive with. Their familiarity is frequently the deciding factor in purchasing this type of package. An easy breathing and dependable regulator, a gauge console and an alternate air source round out the diving system package.
Back Inflation style bcds allow the divers the utmost in comfort and more natural neutral buoyancy underwater. For the warm water diver, the back inflation bcd offers superior comfort and a light weight design popular with the travelling scuba diver. Many back inflation bcds will allow for a greater lift capacity allowing the more advanced scuba diver to take additional equipment with them on a scuba dive such as extra light systems or large camera systems. Additional attachment points and D-rings give the more advanced and technical divers the ability to take additional air systems and sources on their dives. With no air cell wrapping around the diver, the back inflation system tends to streamline the scuba divers equipment and allow for a more comfortable and less encumbered feeling throughout the dive in either warm or cold water diving conditions. A dependable, high performance regulator, a gauge console and an alternate air source complete the diving system package.
BC's that are made specifically for women have features that distinguish them from unisex or men's BC's. They are shorter in the length of the torso, and often offer a padded or velour lining for comfort as well as padded neck seams. The shoulder straps are also designed to curve away from the chest and back toward the lumbar support to help alleviate the uncomfortable upper body squeeze. Most models are appropriate for both cold and warm water use. An easy breathing and dependable regulator, a gauge console and an alternate air source round out the diving system package. See less
