Buoyancy, comfort and a whole lot more. New BCs don’t just provide buoyant lift on the surface and underwater; they do it in comfort, style and with features that’ll make you never want to come up for air.
Designed for the advanced diver, this tough BC includes the Wrapture Harness System, Surelock II integrated-weight system, a dump valve in each corner, plus lots of D-rings and other features no serious diver can do without.
The winner of both a ScubaLab Testers Choice and a Best Buy, the Travelight is a full-featured jacket-style BC designed for traveling divers. Constructed of featherlight 210-denier nylon, it comes with Cressi’s Lock Aid integrated weight system, two zippered pockets and six alloy D-rings. Its soft pack design can be folded in seconds and stowed in its own carry bag. For 2013 the BC features a new range of colors.
1. Owning your own Wetsuit. What’s better than wearing a comfortable warmer that molds to your body shape like a second skin? No more squeezing into rental suits that are long in the legs and short in the torso. No more having to constantly readjust your ballast weight to match each rental suit’s buoyancy characteristics. Oh yeah, and no more wondering if that foreign pee smell is coming from the suit, or is just your imagination.
• Start by giving your BC a good freshwater rinse to hose off any big chunks of sand and dirt. • Fill a tub with fresh water, dunk the BC repeatedly, then leave it alone for a five-minute soak. • Remove the BC from the tub and give it another hose rinse. Direct the water stream into the power inflator so the bladder fills with fresh water. • Drain the bladder using the exhaust valves so their internal parts get a good flush.
