    Comments about Cressi Air Travel Women's 2.0 BCD, Black/Pink:

    I love this BC! I have been diving for 11 years and dive regularly as a volunteer diver at our local aquarium. Needed a travel BC due to very strict luggage requirements going on a dive trip to Saba. Trying to get a week's worth of clothes AND all your dive gear under 50 pounds total is REALLY hard to do. Especially, taking U/W photography equipment too!

    This BC met all the requirements I needed to dive comfortably. The workmanship is quality. The 420 Denier nylon seems very durable and should last a long time. I did purchase 2 - 2lb tank trim pockets so I could shift some weight to the tank area, which worked well. With a back inflate, some people are concerned that you can feel a bit pitched forward at the surface. With my tank trim, I did not feel pitched forward at all. I also swapped out the manual inflator for an Atomic SS1 Air2 to eliminate the need for an octo, which lightened the load as well. (Since the Atomic SS1 comes with multiple adapter sizes and pin sizes for the cable, this was the obvious choice and worked well, since this Cressi BC has a non-standard size on the corrugated hose.) And, although I haven't been a fan of pink in the past, I really have grown fond of the hot pink trim... Adds a bit of a "girly" touch, were most dive equipment is very boring looking, in general. I purchased the SS1 with hot pink trim, so the two look well-matched.

    The jacket fits like a glove. The shoulder strap and waist strap easily adjust so you don't get any movement from your tank, which was one of my concerns originally. The second tank strap helps keep the tank tight and secure feeling. There is a roll down pocket that I haven't used. Initially, I thought it was going to feel uncomfortable rolled up around the waistline. But, with my 3 mil suit, I don't notice it at all. Thought it would be nice to have a "real" pocket, but actually with this BC, I haven't missed it at all. I bought a small vertical pocket for my eLed dive light, which I secured on a shoulder strap without issue. In addition, I had a small dive slate on a retractor and a pocket snorkel secured to one of the D rings and I never notice them getting in my way.

    I really enjoyed the fact that the BC is back inflate, as well. For me, it took very little getting used to moving from a jacket style BC to a back inflate BC. The one REAL advantage is that when you add air to the BC, you don't get squeezed at all, like you do in standard jacket style BC. It's very "free-ing" not having the extra material around your chest area.

    The "lock aid" integrated weight pockets are nice. I wear a size medium, and each pocket can accommodate 10 lbs. The pouches are zippered and REALLY lock in securely and easily. You will hear a well defined "pop" sound when they lock into place. I really appreciate that feature.

    The whole BC folds over into a VERY compact size. And, the BC comes with a velcro strap to cinch it down into a very tightly rolled shape that took up very little room in my luggage.

    Love this BC! If you are looking for a BC that is lightweight and still functions like a standard BC, this is the one to buy! I would recommend it to all my female dive buddies!

      Comments about Cressi Air Travel Women's 2.0 BCD, Black/Pink:

      very nice, extremely light BCD. Folds down very compactly for travel.
      Sizing runs very big as the small is almost too big for me and I'm 5'8" 160#.
      Overall I really like this although there is a little bit of a curve getting used to the back inflate vs. vest style I have had for the past 20 yrs. It's hard to tell how much air you have in the BCD without reaching back to feel the bladder, or ask someone. Maybe just something you accommodate to in time and not really a problem, just different.
      I am a little disappointed that there is no way to add weight in the water without pulling out the integrated weight pouch, unzipping it, adding the extra weight then trying to re-inset the weight pouch as there are no pockets on this BCD. There is a small rolled up bag for extras on the right bottom edge, but I wouldn't put a weight in there. There is an optional trim weight bag you can purchase and slide on the tank straps, but in order to keep weight evenly distributed you would need to buy one for each side, and then your buddy would be the one adding extra weight. Why these aren't part of the BCD to begin with is slightly baffling.
      One other small annoyance was the fact that the right lower dump pull has a small round hard plastic end that seems to want to float under my tank, and get pressed against my sacrum which is not very comfortable. I had to reach back several times each dive to pull it out, only to have it float back under the tank again.
      All in all I think it's a great BCD, with many clips and rings to keep all your add-ons (flashlight, rattle, hose clips, etc..) It's definitely lighter and easier to pack than the vest style, and I think as I get used to the new style will enjoy it as much as my vest style.
