The Sherwood Avid CQR3 BCD is a fully featured, jacket inflation style BCD. This BCD is equally at home when diving in the warm Caribbean to colder North Atlantic seas and everywhere in between.
The hydrodynamic jacket style bladder provides a high degree of comfort and an innovative neoprene padded neck roll protects from the chaffing and irritation often experienced with multiple dives.
The highly regarded CQR-3 weight system provided convenience, stability and ease of weight insertion, all the while boasting the most secure weight integrated system in the market today. The larger handles on the CQR-3 system are superb with thicker gloves as well.
With a jacket style design, air wraps around the diver allowing for easy and comfortable floating on the surface while eliminating the squeeze sometimes associated with this style bcd. Generous, zippered pockets can hold accessories and a utility pocket with a hook and loop can carry the Akona Safety Tube (SKU: AKNST).
The Avid BC is Pro-Kit Ready and can accommodate the Sherwood Gemini Breathable Inflator for an additional charge.

This is my second Sherwood AVID. As an instructor I am using my first for my pool rig, second for open water. I'm a big guy and like the XXXL, not so much for the cummerbund sizing but the shouldwer straps are longer so the jacket rides better on my body, better trim. Great weight release system, my other (non AVID) BCD had a system and the handles would release if they got a sideways bump like on an ascent line. Great BCD!!
I love the Avid BCD! My first one lasted almost 12 years! Very versatile.
This is a great buy for the bigger person. I am 6’-7” and 370lbs this fits great and is very easy to adjust and comfortable. It packs very small and is good for travel for being a larger size.
