The BCJ-3860 Evolution Platina BC is TUSA's most fully featured wrap-around style jacket. The Evolution Platina is ideal for any diver who desires a robust traditional style jacket. The BCJ-3860 offers TUSA patented features such as the Advanced Weight Loading System (A.W.L.S.), the Independent Harness System, and the Ultimate Stabilizing Harness. Additionally, the Evolution Platina incorporates TUSA's Waist Support System allowing for customizable shoulder/harness fit. Advanced weight loading system has evolved into a buckle type. Setting weight has become even easier than in conventional products. Naturally, the weight cartridge is easy to release in an emergency, but the safety lock makes sure that it is not released accidentally. Rear trim pockets combine with the A.W.L.S. to optimally balance the weight load. TUSA's Ultimate Stabilizing Harness completely eliminates tank roll and delivers an amazing fit.The U.S.H. securely holds the air cylinder in place with optimally placed rails and brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight. The Waist Support System significantly enhances comfort and fit by dispersing the weight load around the hips. The W.S.S. integrates the adjustable shoulder harness system with the rear stabilizing plate and cummerbund to effectively unload the hips while ensuring a snug fit.

I absolutely love this BCD, couldn't have wished for better features. The jacket style is perfect for me, I float on my back naturally when on the surface. Also it has large pockets and many small options and features that makes diving a better experience.

This BCD is Big and Heavy. It takes a little getting use to, but it should last for years. It seems well made. Let me do 4 or 5 dives and I will be able to give a better opinion.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

Very nice BCD for the buck. Well made and easy to service. Only complaint is that when on the surface and inflated, it keeps wanting to roll you over onto your face. Have to learn to manipulate it a bit so that you can float chest up. Other than that I am very happy.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

A very nice BCD for the price. Rugged fabrics with sturdy construction, made to last. I needed a rugged, tough BCD and the Tusa Platina appears to meet that need. That along with a great low Leisure Pro price made this BCD a tough one to pass up. So far it has exceeded my expectations except for buoyancy on the surface. Needs to be inflated close to volume to keep my head out of water, but it is a rear bladder style so it was expected. I am looking forward to putting it through some heavy duty use.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

This BCD is very nice. It has everything you need for doing about any kind of diving you would ever want, excluding tech diving. It is very well designed and made out of really good materials, as well. The only thing I would change on it is the handle to carry it. It could be hard plastic built in instead of fabric. I can see it eventually tearing, maybe not. Other than that it is great. Great price for how nice it is.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

I used this for 10 dives in Cozumel, my first time with a weight integrated BC. It was very comfortable and easy to use. It is twice as heavy as my old BC. i purchased this BC for both cold and warm water. I have not tested it in the cold yet but the weight pockets and high lift capacity should do well. Overall, very happy with it so far.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

Perfect bc. Comfortable, fits like a glove, definitely made to last. The weight integrated pockets are the best iv ever used, your weights aren't going anywhere. Iv used bcs' where the pockets continuously fall out only to hang by a strap by the time you find out. All my expectations of this bc were blown out the water. This bc is great from beginners to advanced divers. I just recently got back from a very cold dive where i bottomed out at 85ft, and it worked without a flaw.

Service & Delivery comments:

Very fast delivery. Product was shipped from NJ and i live in Florida, the shipment arrived in 3 days.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

Great BC, I bought this BC over 4 years ago when I got my open water cert. Have done many dives here in Hawaii. I left the equipement at my perents house when I left the islands for a year. When I came back I used the gear and noticed the inflator leaks a tiny bit. Probably due to it sitting for over a year. Although never had any problems with inflators on my scubapro BC's.

Other than the inflator leaking a bit the vest has served me vary well and never had any other problems. Its over 4 years old and I still use it really heavy since I got back to the islands.

Don't pass up for the price!

Describe Yourself:

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

I have used this BC for 20 warm water dives so far. It feels very bulky, and although big pockets are handy, the independent harness idea means the whole jacket seems to move around on you too much.

The L/XL size was too big for me at 170 lbs and 6 foot. It's oversized. Might be fine for a bigger guy. I tried my wife's Selene on and it felt much better as it didn't move around as much underwater.

Nice weight pockets, lots of fasteners, but quite heavy for travel. The backplate adds lots of weight. Nice inflater valve. Dump valve strings are a bit flimsy. No suitable knife attachment or flashlight pocket. Doesn't fold up well for travel so takes up too much space, unlike it's sister, the Selene.

If you are a woman considering this BC, forget it.

This jacket might work better if I had a thick heavy wetsuit or drysuit on and was diving locally.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

I used this on about my 3 diving experience...and found it to be a fantastic improvement over the BC supplied in my course.

The intergrated weight system is FANTASTIC, and really easy to use. I will never go back to a weight belt if I can help it.

This BC has lots of adjustment, so you can really customize the fit.

I loved the big storage pockets (2 zippered, and 2 semi open behind the zips as well)... and lots of nicely placed hooks etc too.

This thing inflates and deflates really smoothly and evenly...making it easy to adjust precise amounts to achieve neutral buoyancy. Also required little effort to manually deflate too.

The only thing I would change, is the colour of the surface WHISTLE...it's BLACK...RED or ORANGE would make more sense...but hey, the inclusion of the whistle was a bonus anyway ;)

I would highly recommend this BC, ... FANTASTIC and absolute bargain too !

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

I am rather buoyant, with the integrated weight system I can fit a 5 and a 4 pound weight in each of the front weight pouches. I only use 2 lbs weights in the back trim pouches, but there is room for 5lbs in them. The pockets have plenty of room for everything I need with room extra. Fits very nice without squeezing when inflated and is easy to move around in, my dad got a different BCD and he can not lift his arms up due to his straps being so wide, these straps are durable and not as bulky.
I would recommend getting a retractor or a second hose clip for you computer, it only comes with one hose clip that can hold 2 hoses. I keep my alternate on my right and my computer on my left. There is a small strap for the computer that was put on a d-ring, but it was to short to see the computer while diving and I don't like taking it off the clip every time I want to see how much pressure is in my tank.

I have used this BCD on over 10 dives and it has been wonderful, a lot better than the rentals and the one my uncle let me use. The dump valves work great and are very easy to get to.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

Bought this for my trip to Similan Islands, Thailand for an exhausting 15 dives in 4 days trip. I was absolutley satified with this. The price was exceptional and the fit and adjustability had me wearing this BCD around the house before I left. The padding and adjustments made this truly a pleasure to dive in. At depth or on the surface with full inflation it still is like a glove. Want a good BCD, I have used tons of them but this one hit the nail on the head! Almost forgot, I added the TUSA inflator, integrated octo and it too worked great.

Comments about Tusa Tusa Platina Evolution BCD, Black (BCJ-3860):

Love it! I gave it 4 stars not 5 because it's a bit bulky and heavy, not for travel. Also, I'm 5'4", 115 lbs, and size small is still too big for me. Purchased a crotch strap [...] and it works great.
