    Comments about Cressi Start Pro BCD:

    This is my first Weight integrated BC. I have been diving with a weight belt for years and finally made the move to WI. I was surprised at how well the BC is put together. Very heavy construction, much better than my more expensive non-WI that I have been using for years now. The weight pockets are roomy enough for plenty of weight and have a "backing" inside to keep the weights from causing any discomfort because of corners poking you in the side. The webbing is wide and easily adjusted, the cummerbund holds the BC securely in place. The back-plane is padded well and secures the tank with no slipping. This is a great BC for the money. I liked it so much that I bought my son the same BC in medium size.

            I'm a DiveMaster and FINALLY got my wife into diving. I bought her this BCD & it works very well. She diving much better having her out set-up. I highly recommend it. Great for beginners, "casually divers" or kids. Integrated weights & velcro pockets are great!
