Questions about this item:
How much lead weight can each pocket hold? How many pockets are there? 2 quick release and 2 in the back?
CLAIRE K There are 2 quick release and 2 buckled pockets in the back. I can fit at least 2, 3 pound weights in each of the quick release pockets and at least one 3 pound weight in each of the back pockets
Yes -- 16lbs diver releasable and 10 lbs non-releasable on the back.
Stephanie V Thanks Maria! I'm new to diving so I have what might seem like an obvious quesion . . . The point of weight integrated BCDs is to NOT wear a weight belt, correct? I'm just kind of nervous that holding 26 pounds on this one BC may cause it to start tearing sooner because of all the weight?
Would you recommend wearing all of your weight in this BC or spreading it to both the BC and a Weight Belt?
MARIA V That is a question we all ask when first learning to dive. No question is a dumb question.
Yes - the point of weight integrated BCD is to "not" wear a weight belt. 26 lbs total (for example: 4 lbs on each side of the releasable = 16lbs and 5 lbs in each of the back side pouches = 10lbs would equal 26 lbs total within the BCD) is not necessarily what you would dive with. You need to find out how much weight you need by performing a buoyancy check before descending for your initial dive. How much weight depends on what type of wet suit you're wearing (7mm vs 3 mm), your weight and experience. If you're not sure how much that is or how to perform a buoyancy check - I would ask a certified dive master.
I love my Tusa Selene II BCD and I'm sure you will too.
Good luck and Happy, Safe Diving...!!!
Stephanie V Thanks so much!! :)
REBECCA B There are 2 quick release pockets. I use 10 lbs (total) weight when diving and each pocket will hold 5 lbs each with no problem. If you need to add more weight you can put the weights in the pockets on each side also. It's a great BC.
How well did it work? Were you happy with it?
ANITA M I found this BC very comfortable. I'm a beginner with scuba diving, having a rental BC fail on me, I felt very secure with my Tusa Selene II. It fits well, and easy to get in and out of, the wt system is also very easy to use. I would recommend this product. Happy diving! I did not get the light or the knife so I cannot comment on them.
PATRICK C The bcd works very nice. It lets you position weight in the front or back to get great buoyancy. It allows you to trim out the weight. Super buoyancy 50 lbs of lift. The active purge assist is nice also. Easy to clean and our family has 5 mine is 3 yrs old and just like new. No repairs and always works like it should. It has nice pockets and plenty of clips for gear. My wife loves her Selene.
How much does it weigh?
Bill P Approximately10 lbs.
What is an active purge assist?
