Brand: Cressi
Located in: Essential Equipment, Buoyancy Compensators
If you're looking for a durable, strong and almost bulletproof BCD jacket than the Start is what you are looking for. Constructed from extremely strong 500 and 1000 denier Cordura, with excellent buoyancy, even on smaller sizes the Start full jacket BCD fits the bill. Designed with the demanding use of Dive Training and Rental Facilities in mind this BCD will give the sport diver years of dependable use.

The BCD has three over-pressure relief/dump valves with two located on the left and right shoulders and a third lower valve on the rear right of the air cell. All three can be manually dumped two with pull cords and the other with the power inflator mechanism. There are two plastic D-rings and two additional snap hooks for attachment of instruments and accessories. If used at Dive Facilities a size indicator is highly visible on the right shoulder.

BCD has two large accessory pockets with Velcro closures, and the adjustable sternum straps along with both torso adjustment straps are equipped with quick-release buckles. The waist strap/cummerbund assembly is independently suspended from the air cell allowing the air cell to inflate away from the diverpreventing the squeeze effect when inflated. The back pack is rigid for support and stability of the cylinder, yet is fully padded for comfort.

Comments about Cressi Cressi Start BCD:

Really comfortable BC with easily adjustable straps. When I first ordered this BC I was really concerned because it was so inexpensive however once I dove in it I realized that the price has nothing to do with the quality. Its plastic tank plate with handle on the inside make it really easy to load on and off the boat if you take it off in the water. I would recommend this BC to anybody as most of the really expensive buoyancy compensators that aren't as quality as this one.
