    Comments about Hollis Gear Hollis Ride Wing Travel BCD 37lbs (16.8kg) Lift:

    I have checked out my new wing setup at the lake and messed with it in the pool during a try sidemount exibition. I got it for travelling, like my upcoming trips to Honduras & Bonaire. I love how light it is but still has all the Hollis Quality. Going to dive single back and double sidemount on next trip in deep warm water. I haven't found anything bad yet. I'll check in if I find any problems on my next trip.

        I'm very pleased with this product. It was a gift from my parents for my birthday and I love it! I first used it with an Alm80 and found that Steels work better like with back inflates. I dive primarily back inflates so getting use to this BC was nothing. I have never had a Hogarthian Style BC and I do love it better than the Harness Style like the Scubapro Xtek Form. Friends who instruct told me to buy the Xtek Pure and I ignored them. My next purchase with be the Pure or the Hollis Solo.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        Richard L  Light weight travel rig
        Shopper  Is the crotch strap detachable? Is it necessary to keep the BC from riding up? In warm water with no wetsuit, the strap can be uncomfortable.
        JACK F  Yes it is detachable. It would probably chaff on bare skin. I personally did not care for the bc. The way it is designed is harder to manage than a normal backplate style. I couldn't get it set up the way i liked it with or without the crotch strap. Didnt work well for me without the crotch strap. I went back to the jacket style because I find it easier. Hope that helps. Jack
        Shopper  Can a hard metal backplate be added to the sewn in soft backplate?
        Steve S  No, you can not add a hard backplate to this BC, nor would you want to. This is a Travel wing. If you want a traditional hard backplate, we can certainly help you choose the correct setup.
