About Cressi Travelight BCD

The Cressi Travelight is a Lightweight Version of a Traditional Jacket BCD with All-Around Lift to provide good Balance and Trim Under-the-Water and Support while on the Surface. The Overall-Weight of the Travelight has been Reduced-by-Careful-Selection of Strong but Light Materials to allow the BCD to be Packed-Down into a very Small Carry Bag that is Ideal for Travelling.

The BCD Bladder uses a Durable Internally Urethane Laminated 210-Denier Nylon to provide the necessary Strength without adversely affecting the Weight and Light-Alloys have been used to make the D-Rings in place of Traditional Stainless Steel. This Weight-and-Bulk Reduction doesn't mean that the Travelight is unable to support a Full-Integrated Weight System with Trim Pockets. The Cressi Travelight BCD comes with the Integrated Lock Aid Quick-Release Weight System that hold up to 20 lbs (9 kg), with 10 lbs (4.5 kg) in each Pocket, and two Additional Rear Non-Releasable Trim Weight Pockets that help Increase-Stability in the Water.

The Travelight is also fitted with more traditional features such as a Rear Kidney and Right Shoulder Pull Dumps, a Inflator Integrated Pull Dump on the Left-Shoulder and Manual Deflation from the Inflator Assembly. A Large Zipped Pocket can be found on either side of the BCD for Convenient-Storage of Accessories. The Travelights Harness System uses Traditional Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckles and Adjustable Straps on the Shoulders, Chest and Waist for Precise-Adjustment-and-Fit. A Velcro Adjustable Waist Cummerbund provides Extra-Security and Comfort. A Flexible Padded Back Pad with Twin Cylinder Cam Bands provides good Back Protection and Cylinder Security while still allowing the BCD to be Quickly Folded and Packed-Away.

The BCD comes equipped with a 3/8" Low Pressure Hose and provides from 13.5 to 36 lbs (6.1 to 16.3 kg) of Lift and weighs 5 to 6.2 lbs (2.3 to 2.8 kg). The Cressi Travelight BCD is available in several color options, 5 sizes, comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

DIVE PINK & FIGHT BREAST CANCER! For every Pink BCD $40 will be donated to fight breast cancer.

    I initially bought a large; however, all adjustments were near the end of range when tightened. This was without a wetsuit. I am 5'11, 189 with 42" chest. I exchanged for medium which was much better fit. I dove with the BC for first time last week. I found it difficult to don when attached to a tank sitting on a boat. The soft backpack folds over considerably which makes it difficult to get arms through the shoulder straps even when doing it one at a time. Although fully extended, the shoulder straps seem short. Maybe, I should have kept the large. I had the most success by disconnecting one shoulder strap and holding it over that soulder while passing arm through the opposite still connected strap, then reconnecting the first strap.

      Comments about Cressi Travelight BCD:

      I have used this BCD all over the world. It packs so small and dries quickly. It is light, dependable and high quality. I have used in salt, caves, cenetoes, Indonesia, Bonaire, Cozumel and it works perfectly. I think that there may be more effective BCDs for more frequent divers, but for travel, there is nothing better when you want to keep the equipment and luggage to a minimum. I am a size small, 5'3", 34E and 140lbs and it fits great. lots of pockets/features for the size

      Comments about Cressi Travelight BCD:

      My wife and I bought one each for tropical trips and appreciated keeping all the essential features in a lighter BC. We did 28 dives and agree with an earlier reviewer the need to not mount the tank too high to prevent the reg interfering with the back of our heads. We will convert the packing strap into a crutch strap to assist in preventing this happening, in my view Cressi would be better to not have the rear pouch for this strap and use the savings to make it a dual purpose item.
      I will also add an attachment point inside each pocket to ensure we don't lose the safety gear we store there. There are plenty of attachment points on the BC elsewhere. Overall we are extremely pleased with the quality of the product and will also use it cold water diving in Melbourne.

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        MARK P  This BC was rated as one of the top travel BC's and the price point was right on! I travel/dive all over the world and I am tired or schlepping my Zeagle Ranger around with me...looking forward to a light weight travel BC.
        Richard K  Are the waist and chest sizes after you put on your dry suit and underwear?
        JOE H  Sorry, can't help you. We use our BC's in warm water. But, the Cressi Travelight BC is a great BC.
        keith k  how much does it weigh?
        JOE H  I'm not positive since I bought ours a few years ago, but 4.7 pounds comes to mind for some reason. It's very light and very compact. It's a great BC.
