    Bought this BCD about 2 months ago from LPL and couldn't be happier with it. Fits great, adjusts easily, trims very easily, durably made. Lots of useful features. Has 2 gigantic zippered pockets, lots of D-rings. Replaced an older oceanic BCD and this one is of substantially better quality. Comes in 2x size for the bigger divers. Loved it so much I bought another for my daughter.

    No carrying handle

    I didn't get to use this BCD, once I received it I realized it did not have a carrying handle. Other than the carrying handle, it has lots of features and fit well.

    Tank Mount failed

        Comments about Genesis Cobra LD BCD:

        I've had my Cobra BC for about 10 years and today the plastic backing that secures the Tank to BC failed during a dive. The Tank was just flopping around on my back. I don't know if the newer models corrected this, but it's a poor design that uses a very small surface area of plastic for the strap that holds the tank on. The plasitc back plate is sewed into the BC and cannot be replaced. I was diving with an instrucor buddy and he said they see this faiure mode at their shop all the time.

          Comments about Genesis Cobra LD BCD:

          tank strap comes undone easily and does not clamp on tank in a very sturdy manner, backpiece a little too thin, and lpi deflator often stuck open.
          minor problems easily solvable in water, have done about 100 dives with it, so far so good.
          Overall its a good sturdy bcd, trim weight pockets easily fit a 5lb weight each

            I have about twenty dives with this BC so far. It isn't too bulky, has two very large pockets and just the right amount of D rings. It fits well and is very comfortable. I am very glad I purchased it. Excellent construction and it should last for years to come. Well worth the money

              Comments about Genesis Cobra LD BCD:

              I am a public safety diver and this is a great BC, especially if you are diving with a pony bottle setup. The trim weight pockets on the back are perfect to counterbalance a pony bottle. Public safety divers usually don't use weight integrated BCs, so it not being weight integrated is fine for me. The BC is also very durable, have used it for ice diving as well and didn't have any problems.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              JAYME M  Great purchase, rugged construction. Should last for years to come. Bought it due to price and recommendation from staff.
              Shopper  Hi, My name is Rob, thank you for taking the time to review my questions. This BC seems almost perfect for me, but I do have a few questions. I have loved my Sherwood Magnum non weight integrated BC, but sold it a year ago as I was going to be unable to dive due to a knee surgery. I can no longer find the non weight integrated for sale, but heard that this Genesis is made by Sherwood, and it sure looks like my old Magnum. Really only 2 questions. One, is it positive or negative buoyant? And two, will it accept the Sherwood BCD octo? Thank you very much for your time.
              ILARIA T  Hello Rob, not too sure about the buoyancy of the bc.. it does come with a lpi that fits it, i stil use the aqualung one i had before and it fits, i must say this bcd is sturdy exept for the back plate which is crap i use it now whith a cracked backplate just make the top safetystrap keep it tight to the tank , there isnt even a way to change it because it is not with screws but has been sewed (as in thresad and needle) its a pity cuz the rest of the bc is perfect (exept for deflator valve that looses air here and then....)
