I used this BC on 7 fresh water dives before sending it back. The first issue was that half of my weight fell out because of the way the weight pocket was designed and sent me plummeting to the surface. The last 2 times I used the BC the power inflator leaked air into the BC, some times fast, sometimes slow, again sending me to the surface. Luckily I was in shallower water during these events because all of these issues could have caused serious injury.

Comments about Cressi-Sub Aquapro 5R Buoyancy Compensator:
I Wanted to really use this BC before formally assessing it. Just finished six boat dives including night dives, moderate depth dives, and some drift diving.Couldn't believe how adaptable the Cressi is. Plenty of room for hanging everything but can still keep things streamlined to protect the reef. I used a weight belt instead of the weight pockets because I want to reserve them for soft weight bags, not hard weights. No problem with having room for both the BC and the belt. Plenty of room in the air bags to compensate for changes in weight used in a dive.Hovering was a snap and the unit flowed air out in a hurry to allow for a quicker dive. The three dump valves allowed me to adjust bouyancy at nearly every angle which made it nice when we went under reef shelfs or through reef tubes.The only modification I had to make in the field was to zip-tie the keeper for the big inflator hose. This is the keeper that is used to keep the corrugated hose from kinking. I zip-tied the end by the dump valve but will probably end up zip-tying the other end that wraps around the hose too.I am very happy with this purchase [...] When you need it fast and you need it right...Use LeisurePro!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have a Balance BCD which is not good for teaching in so i bought this 5R BCD because it is a jacket style, it gives you the option of weight belt or integrated as some integrated BCDs go over your weight belt.It is a good solid BCD well worth the money. if i had to say one bad thing it would be that you should wear a skin or wetsuit top under it as it can rub against your under-arms.
Excellent for the price!

I have used this B.C. in fresh and ocean water. The only issue I have EVER had is that my weights were able to slip out of the weight pockets. Ruined my first ocean dive, but I learned to be aware of the possibility!
Great low cost option

Good quality, many features I like (clips for hoses, etc), and the weight pockets work well. Found it hard to vent the air while diving, but works well enough when leveled out. Overall, happy with purchase
