Does anyone know if this BC would work for women? I want to get one for my wife. She is 5.8' 145 Lbs what size should I get for her?
MARCOS C Hi Max- She probably needs small as a size. I have a size large and i am 5'9" 193lbs with a larger upper body frame than average. It weighs (large size) 12 lbs (without weights) . The BCD overall comes without any complaints but keep in mind that it has 2 straps to secure your tank. I believe this is a bit unusual but it turns out that it worked for me because I purchased a 120 tank which is longer and 7 to 9 pounds heavier than other standard sizes. Good luck and take the dive!
VINCENT G Max,
I am a male 5'7' 180lbs and purchased a Medium in Nov 2012 and have PLENTY of room with a 3mm wet suite.
I don't know how much the sizes will differ from MD to SM but I give you this info as a reference.
I bought this same BCD and it works great. I don't see why it wouldn't work well for her. As far as sizing I am 6'4 275 lbs and I got the 2XL and it fit great. Hope this helps.
Max B Thanks TY ... I am actually 6'0 265 lbs and I am thinking about getting the XL for myself... I may go for the 2XL after your comment. And the Med for the wife. Thanks
TY S My brother is 6' and he got the 2XL and it fits him great
Max I dont see any reason why it would not work for a woman. But I do know this they run big. I am a big guy. 6'4" 310lbs and I wear a 2XL. If you call Leisure Pro and talk to there sales dept they will help you with your problem. But from what you discribed for your wife I would say Med to Small. Hope this helped.
Max B Thanks William. will do
I do not see why a men's small would not fit a 5'8" 145 # women
I'm title over 6 foot and 205 in a large.
I am 5'10 and 170# and I own this bc in a size large. Sherwood size chart shows size medium as 5'4-5'8 height 140-170# weight so probably a medium for her.
Max B I think so too Joe... thanks!
I love this bc ...im. a male at 5'6" and 170 and I bought a large and it fits well after wearing a suit. I would say a medium.
Max B Agree... thanks Brian
