Not worth the money
Review by JT (Posted on 9/10/13)
I may just be having bad luck but I had mine before the recall on the weight pouches and just recently had the plastic rivets that hold the weight pouch to the BC break on it, But other than that it's a wonderful BCD Oceanic just needs to redesign there weight pouches.
Awesome for the most part
Review by Jeff (Posted on 5/29/13)
This is my second season with my BC. I bought it because of the back bladder and steel D-rings. I also bought it because it said could be used for technical use. There are a couple of improvements that I would love to see. First, the QLR weights. I have lost both pockets on dives. They trick you into thinking they are locked in and then fall out on you. I tie mine down when I dive cuz of this. Honestly, I don't trust them anymore. Not to mention, they are $35 dollars a piece to replace not to mention your lost lead. Not to mention how fun it is trying to maintain a safe ascent rate when you've lost half your lead. Second, I wish it came with a double cam band for the tank. I have never had mine slip but with it being designed for "tech" use as well it should just have a double tank band or at least have a place in the lumbar support where you could add one if desired. Third, it needs an air dump on the right shoulder so you can vent air while ascending. Its kinda hard to watch your computer which is usually on your left side while you are trying to vent air with the same hand. The probe has this feature...why not the excursion. And I agree with the other review that they pockets are too small and hard to see when you are trying to use them.

But overall it is a well made BC, very sturdy and durable and at the time it was the best BC that I could afford and I see me diving with it for many years to come. I love the back wing and how comfortable it is when I dive with it.
Wonderful BC
Review by Brady (Posted on 3/23/12)
When I was in the market for a BC I have tried on everything. For me, I have found this one fit the best. And had the best quality and overall seemed to be best made. Why I chose this BC- Because the lumbar on back sat it right in my spine locking it place. The reflectors on top I feel would be very helpful for night diving. The quick releases require no thought. Just pull and they release. In addition, I feel that this BC is very streamline. If you look at this BC you will find it has many titanium rings for you to lock things on to them. Unlike many others that offer "plastic" clips and and very little of them.
What I would change on it would be the lower pockets. They are to far back and you will not be able to see them when you are diving. You will have to feel for them. Really though, who uses them?? And the alternate air source is really short. I would lengthen that 2-3".
Over all, I love this BC! If you are in the market, I would strongly suggest trying one on. It will lock to your body! And is very comfortable!
Somewhat satisfied
Review by Tommy (Posted on 3/19/12)
I absolutely love this BC. It is very comfortable and has very substantial lift. EXCEPT, the weight pocket broke, the inside bracket attached to the BC, to which I cannot find that part anywhere! Not even on this site! This is terrible!

This repair should be done at an authorized dealer or returned to the factory.
