    This BCD is a very good design proportioned for women.

    Until this purchase I had been using a rental BCD, which was usually a men's size XS. This was very uncomfortable and not proportioned for a woman's frame, but rather a short stocky man. I often found that the cummerbund and underarms rode up because they could not be cinched down tighter, the shoulder straps were too wide, and the chest strap was too high and caught against my neck. With the new Aeris EX 300 for women, these problems are solved.

    For size reference, I am 5'5" (165cm) and 137 Lbs (62kg) and bought the women's size small (6-8) and it fits great. I have done 2 dives with it and found that the BCD stays secured in place during the whole dive and surface swim back to the boat. The back has good padding and the shoulders are contoured to be narrower. The chest has ample room for accommodating an A through D cup bust size. It is not simply a men's design made smaller and marketed with some pink designs. They actually designed this BCD to be comfortable for women. The adjustable Velcro on the cummerbund is well designed and did not ride up against the chest in the water. The integrated weight system is also very convenient. Just make sure to familiarize yourself and your buddy on how to release them.

    I haven't yet used this BCD. I just ordered it for an upcoming dive trip. I was surprised and disappointed in the weight of it as I pulled it out of the box. The product specs on line did not include a weight, and I never imaged a BCD would be so heavy. I think there is a metal tank plate in the back. Not suitable for travel. Otherwise, it seems to be sturdy with reasonable features for the price.

          I wanted to start with my own gear so I could get used to it, without the need to get familiar with rental gear every time. I'm very happy with it, the price was great, this particular bc was discontinued but I contacted the manifaturer and was told was a marketing decision not beacuse of problems with the item. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs I bought a small and I wear it in the smallest configuration. One thing I did not like is that the bc was listed at 30lbs lift for the small size, however the actual lift (from manifacturer label is only 27 lbs). I was concerned at first but it seems to be enough for my needs, 7mm, AL72, 24 lbs of weiths.

          This is my first non-rental BCD and I am very happy with this product. The integrated weight system improved the comfort of my diving experience. The price that I got this jacket for was unbelievable. I had been looking for a BCD in the local dive shops and this BCD was 1/3 the price but had many of the same features. I'm 5'3" 110 and the small fits well.

            Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            KRISTINA P  Great price and made for women.
            Dayna F  I've tried on the aeris ex100 does anyone know if that's the male version of this bc? I liked it very much but would prefer a female bc and can not find this in stores to try on. I am female 5'4 weighing 118 lbs, would a small be sufficient size? Thanks
            ANGELINA A  It's small enough for a woman. I recently purchased this one in XS but have not had the luxury to wear it in the ocean yet. I'm 5'2 and around 110-106 lbs so pretty small and nothing "one size fits all" will fit me. I've tried it on right out of the box and must say the XS fits me very well. I'm not too worried even if I have to add the weights, cylinder and water.
            Shopper  I want to get one for my wife who is 5.8' - 145 Lbs. According to the sizing chart that one posted she should go with Medium. is this correct? or should I go with the Med-Large for her? Thanjs
            AMANDA S  Hi there. This has been an interesting BC to get used to, but I think I like it! By the dimensions you gave, your wife seems like she is likely a narrow build for her height. I am in the top of the height/weight range for the extra-small, and it is SNUG, but comfortable in the water. For someone with a heavier build, I would say to size up, but your wife can probably wear the medium without a problem. It will feel too tight out of the water, but it situates ok once you get in. It IS a nice fit after diving unisex BCs. This BC also somewhat forcefully holds you in a diving position. By that, I mean it balances horizontal when you use the integrated weight pockets. It just does it to such a strong degree that I find I have difficulty moving to vertical when I want to. I have figured out how to maneuver this with it, but it's still kind of a pain. I will probably just buy a separate weight belt before I dive again. Happy diving!
