I dive in Monterey but my ocean weight is only sixteen pounds, will this BC bladder provide enough lift for me?
MILT R Yes, it will provide enough lift. If you haven't used a back inflate BC before; you will want to bias your weight to rear, to counter the push it gives forward, especially on surface. It's not bad but noteworthy.
SAYAN M Saltwater gives higher buoyancy than freshwater. Since your ocean weight is 16lb, I estimate that your freshwater weight would be less, say about 13.5lbs. In either case, the bladder will provide more than sufficient buoyancy for you to maintain neutral and have capacity to raise at least additional10-12lbs.
In summary, yes.
SUSAN E Yes it should it provides up to 30 lbs. of lift.
