    Just returned from a week in Saba, used it for the 1st time there. Like I’ve used it for years, light great for travel. I would highly recommend it.

    Just came back from the British Virgin Islands where I used it for the first time (bought it in December 2013). The BC is great. Streamlined performance, light weight, comfortable. One problem I note is that there is no handle on the backplate to help lift it onto the dinghy. Since this is an integrated weight system, I think that improvement would help. I found myself taking it off in the water. Emptying the weights into the dinghy, then pulling myself in, and then pulling in the BC and tank by the shoulder straps. A handle would be helpful.

    One upgrade I paid for was the Air X2 Alternate Inflator, which eliminates the need for an additional Octopus. GREAT OPTION!!! I liked the fact that I did not have an extra hose for the Octopus hanging off of me. Eliminates the possibility of another hose getting caught on coral, or wreck. Definitely worth the extra money!

    iam a big guy and this is a great bc, comfortable, lightweight. the lift is very good, I used 20 pounds in weigths and still hold me up. downsides there no handle on it, other than that I recommend highly.

    soy una persona grande y te digo es un gran bc, liviano, bien comodo. la flotabilidad es bien Buena, yo uso 20 libras y me da una flotabilidad incredible. lo unico que no me gusta es que no tiene mago para cargarlo.

    aparte de eso yo si recomiendo este bc
