About Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD

The Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD is a dual purpose BCD that is great for travel and so incredibly versatile, it can be used for a wide assortment of diving. It s light and can be compacted enough to be packed for your warm water trip to the tropics. But it also houses enough lift, weight capacity and room for maneuverability to be used with a dry suit in cold-water conditions. It s an all around BC for any occasion.

The Aquaride Blue Pro is constructed with durable 420-denier nylon and can stand up to the daily use of a professional diver. But any level of diver can use this BCD; it's trimmed down style makes for easy usage and comfort. The Blue Pro features a hard-pack frame with plenty of padding for comfort and offers adjustable shoulder straps that are unaffected by the air bladder for a better fit. This also makes the BCD incredibly easy to don. For even more comfort, the cummerbund and chest strap are elastic so even when your air bladder is full, you're still feeling comfortable. The Aquaride Blue Pro also incorporates three dump valves for any position you may encounter; two shoulder valves and rear waist valve. Plus, the new integrated lock aid system is a super smooth; secure integrated weight system with a quick and easy release mechanism. The releasable pockets accommodate 20 lbs (9 kg) of weight

Although travel and dual purpose are usually trimmed down on the accessory side the Aquaride Blue Pro does not heed this information. It incorporates non-releasable weight trim pockets on the tank strap with a capacity of 8 lbs (3.6 kg) of lead for better buoyancy control. Six stainless steel D-rings are readily available for all of your gadgets. The Blue Pro also provides two generously large zippered pockets to house all of your additional accessories. The Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD is a fantastic all-around BCD that can be used by divers of all levels and can be your one and only BCD for any type of diving you choose to do. Adjustable sternum straps along with both torso adjustment and waist straps are equipped with squeeze-style" side release buckles for easy donning and doffing. This jacket style BCD provides 18 lbs to 42.7 lbs (8.2 kg to 19.4 kg) of lift depending on size. Buoyancy control is facilitated with Cressi's power inflator equipped with a standard with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose. The BCD weighs from 7 lbs to 8.3 lbs (3.2 kg to 3.8 kg), comes with an owner's manual and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

Very Good BCD

Last weekend I dove with the Aquaride Blue. It is extremely comfortable and that's an understatement. Far more comfortable than the back inflate style that I've been using. Of course they are totally different BCDs and I get that but the comfort level of the Cressi can't be overstated. I also love the control that this BC gives me. On the surface it's wonderful. I can be vertical, laid back, leaning forward and it never tries to push me in one direction or the other. I love it. ...

Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD


from Nevada City, CA, US

I just used my new BCD for 10 days in Palau. It worked very well. Its tough, has lots of D rings and big pockets and the weight pockets click in solidly. While advertised as a travel BCD it is actually mid weight when compared to other jackets, however, it folds very flat. I used 2 lbs. less weight than I needed with my rental jackets. Overall I'm vey pleased with it. That fact that I purchased it on sale for $330.00 made it a no brainer. Two minor complaints: The mouth piece for manual inflation is small, hard and very difficult to seal while blowing. It might not be possible with numb lips. I'm now looking for a rubber mouth piece I can add. Not sure if I'll be successful... Also, the help desk suggested I purchase a medium. It was too small and they did exchange it. However, the fit charts suggest I get a medium I'm 5'11", 210lbs, 36" waist, 44" chest. The large fits fine and when I loosen the chest straps its easy to slide in and out of


Great choice for first BC


from Santa Fe, NM, US

I purchased this BCD as my very first, and I couldn't be happier. It's comfortable and well designed. I took it on a refresher course and discovered I had no issues at all keeping almost perfectly neutrally buoyant. Well thought out and a great deal!

Great BCD


from NYC, NY, US

Great full featured jacket-style BC at a great price. Lots of metal D rings. Large pockets to store a light or safety sausage. Trim pockets. After trying on several others, this was the one that fit my tall and skinny frame.

Donna R  Thanks Sandy;does the strap across your chest fit ok?
Sandy L  Yes. I bought a small. I'm about 135lbs and 5'. I wear a size ten shirt. And the Small fits perfectly.
Alex L  Yes. My wife had trouble getting a proper fit in women's sizes. Bought this BC and likes it. That said, it is her first one - but a dozen dives in, no complaints. It does seem to emphasize her already large chest, but I'm guessing any BC would.
