      BARE continues to prove they are a real player in the BCD game. Only problem is they don't offer a warranty that matches the quality of their products. If they stepped up to the life service warranty. I think UWATECH / Scubapro would be scared.

      Comments about Bare Blackwing BCD:

      I've used the Bare Blackwing off the Jersey coast, A'Ahu and the Bahamas. I love this BC. I have found it to be very comfortabel to wear, with lots of heavy duty D-rings for clipping on whatever you would like. By adjusting hte amount of air at he surface and with a little lean find that the wing actually makes a nice pillow and doesn't try to face plant me. with a 2-peice 7mm off the jersey coast or dutch springs this BC has no problems holding up to 40-lbs of weight (30/10). The blackwing also has some nice handles for manuvering with the tank and weights before strapping it on. The only downnside is that the blackwing is a bit bulky for traveling. However, this has not been a problem for me as still fits in my bag and all my gear (minus reg set) comes in at less then 40-lbs.

        Comments about Bare Blackwing BCD:

        overall very good product, if you fall foreward with a blackwing you are not weighted properly,it comes with tank ballast weight pockets to make weighting simple.. I have not had a problem.
        it has lotsa d-rings and stoarge, very easy to adjust and very cozy to wear,the reason a 4 out of 5 is that i have a hard time to drain the excess water out of bc, not a big deal just the way the inflater hose is set up....

        Comments about Bare Blackwing BCD:

        I´ve been looking for a new back inflated BC now for a while. I liked this BC when I saw it although there were no reviews for it. So I took my chances. After a few dives with it I can say that I´m not dissapointed. It´s great. My only concern is that its a little bulky, so if you´re planning on traveling with it, I would suggest giving it a little thought. Other than that it is a very good bc. I would say it is half way in between a recreational and a technical buoyancy compensator. I recommend it.
