Today I went to the dive shop to try this on and I had one concern. The weight integration is great but the way you pull out the weights has me worries that over time it will break. Has anyone had this problem?
Wife and I both wear this BC and have had no problems at all. The integrated weights work well.
I have made 18 dives in this BCD, and have not encountered any problems with the integrated weight system. It's a wonderfully minimalistic piece of equipment that's great for traveling and has a surprisingly high lift capability for it's size. I've taken it down to 148 feet and it performed superbly; on par with more expensive models. However, its small size and profile make it perfect for wreck diving and fitting into small spaces. Good luck, stay wet, and, above all, stay safe.
I've had this BCD for a while and I love it. have not had any problems at all with the weight integration, which seems pretty sturdy to me. Good luck deciding!
I have not had any issues with them. They are very extremely robust, diving w/ a wetsuit, i have 8 lbs in each pocket. Looking @ the way that the clip system is designed, it does look like you can replace the clips if they ever break.
Hope that helps.
I haven't had any issues.
I have had this bcd for 2 years now with aggressive use.. several hundred dives and never had good aftercare to it, it is just as good as the day I bought it. No complaints at all. It is also one of my most comfortable bcds.
After 3 years it works good.
I have been using this jacket now for about 3 years and I have not had an problem with it. Great jacket for the price. Definitely recommend this product.
I'm a former owner of this and I can assure you the construction of this will not break. Unless your ditching your weights each one of your dives which would become costly because you'd have to go back down to get them I wouldn't worry about the breakage. Also they make replacement weight pouches for cheap costs .. i think they are 25$ for a replacement one.
I had the BC for about two years. No problems so far, though I usually don't take the weights out after each dive.
