I have one of these, and will weigh it dry for you when I get home late this evening. I will post the weight then.
However, I have travelled with the BCD, 2 wetsuits, my primary and spare regulator and other diving gear with no issues with weight limits.
Look for my answer later this evening.
Thanks, it would be appreciated. I have a Mares Hybrid, which packs well. However, it is 8+ pounds dry and 11+ pounds wet. Makes it tough if you bang around the Philippines with 15 Kilo weight limits (never mind my back).
The weight of the BCD, in size Medium (fitting me, at 6' tall, 190 lbs), is 8.5 lbs. This is without the "quick release" weight holders, which I removed and wasn't sure where they were (I never use the QR systems, as a weight belt with two 4# weights is sufficient for me, and I get better control using the weight belt.)
Regarding packing, it is a tall, stiff BCD, so it doesn't compress much beyond it's full height, and is about 5" thick from back to front at the pockets.
