I liked the old 16lb pockets by Dive Rite better. The velcro strap on the outside of the pocket is a little awkward and as a scuba instructor I'm trying to decide if I think the velcro strap on the outside of the pocket in addition to the quick release buckle, could make this pocket hard to ditch weights if you need to. I would probably not recommend this weight pocket to a new diver. The added velcro inside the weight pocket is nice to secure small weights.
I bought to convert a non weight integrated BCD to a weight integrated BCD.
Will have to see how it goes.
