Product Overview

Originally designed for resort and rental lines, the Cressi Start Pro 2.0 is a fantastic, affordable and fully featured jacket style BCD suitable for both novice and more experienced divers.  

The Integrated weight system. is a very simple, durable weight management system. It enables the diver to autonomously manage the weights safely.  Large wings and large capacity pockets optimize the buoyancy/size ratio. Internal welding with sectorization tubes optimizes the buoyancy.  Cordura 1000 Denier is utilized on the outside panel and 500 Denier on the inside. Cordura is more resistant to erosion caused by long-term friction and extends the life of the weldings, as they are harder than Nylon. This is especially important for dive centers where the jackets are often inflated to their maximum capacity.  

The backpack is as lean and compact as possible for exceptional lightness.   The tank pad is ultra-durable and semi-flexible. A thermoplastic rubber damper for enhanced tank anchoring is included. Safety strap included to anchor the jacket to the tank valve.  The waist strap is independent of the air bladder and cummerbund. This means the strap can be tightened while the jacket is deflated without constricting the diver's stomach when the jacket is inflated.  The shoulder straps are of comfortable unisex design, leaving the chest area completely free. 

Impressively, the inflator console included witht e Start Pro 2.0 has a double air filtration system; under the hose connection stem and around the valve. Easily disassembled for small cleaning operations, even at the beach (sand infiltration, etc).  Equally impressive is the new upper dump valve which has a  non- return system to avoid water infiltration, even when the jacket is deflated.
