Great BCD

I was looking for a travel BCD with a cool water like buoyancy. I fill it with 18 lbs all the pockets, steel tank and 7mm wetsuit with a hood. No problem descending/ascending, very comfortable fit and finish and super light for travel. This is my only BCD for tropics and Southern California dives. There are some mild concerns about weight pockets design but it is something that I can get used to. Highly recommend!


Most Liked Negative Review


Nice Travel BC

Used this for a week-long Caribbean dive trip. BC is as described very compact, very light, and comfortable. I thought it was a little unstable when turning from side to side, and I had some tank slippage when walking from the dive truck to the water's edge.

Nice travel BC


from Mesa, AZ, US

Tucks and folds well, which allows it to fit nicely into luggage. Weight pockets are adequate, and it feels comfortable underway.


After a week of diving


from Salina, KS, US

This is a lightweight travel friendly bc with all the necessary pockets. Worked fine for me without a hitch.


Super light and minimalist


from Parkland, FL, US

If you're looking for a lightweight BC that takes up little room, but still works great, this is it. No pockets, no cumberbund, this is great for taking up very little room in your dive bag. Back inflation for comfort, back dump and shoulder dump for functionality, easy strap adjustability, all the essentials you need without any unnecessary bulk


Love my new BCD!


from Overland Park, KS, US

After 20 years of renting BCD's for diving on vacations, I finally bought my own. I never had any real trouble/reason to complain about rentals and liked the idea of not carting around my own but I've got to say - I wish I had done this sooner! This one is lightweight and compact so it's easy for travel. Just returned from a week of diving - lots of "firsts" on this trip - 1st time to Bonaire with so much shore diving, 1st time I've used back inflate style, 1st time for integrated weights - absolutely loved both features. My bouyancy was completely effortless and I happened to catch this one on sale so that helped too. I really can't think of any negatives except maybe lack of pockets but I really didn't mind - plenty of places to hook stuff if you need it. Looking forward to a lot more use!


Great for travel


This BCD is great for travel. It very easily folds up and is very light. It leaves loss of room in my dive bag. It is very comfortable and easy to put on and take off. The only bad thing is when I put weights in the back pockets I turn over (belly up) in the water. I had to put all the weights in the front pockets to swim right. I thought placing some weight in the back pockets is supposed to help me with my buoyancy control which I am having a lot of trouble with.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Susie F  would adding a BCD Cummerbund or a nonstrech strap keep bc from rolling?
Dcoyaz D  Cummerbund might help, although I've had no problem with rolling in this BC.
THOMAS H  I feel it would help. Not sure why Oceanic went with the stretch belt but replacing it with non-stretch would better secure the BCD.
DAVID N  Can I attach the Atomic Safe Second Inflator to this BC?
Frank L  Yes. the SS1 comes with different sized adapters. One works with the Oceanic BC's.
Stephen L  I am not sure. Oceanic has a proprietary size for their bcd inflator hose. Do your research and I am sure you can find a proper fit. That being said, we love our biolite bcd.
Shopper  Will this BCD accept a Scubapro Air II as a inflator/alternate air source?
Frank L  No, it will not. The diameter of the corrugated hose is too small. Your choices for an integrated inflator would be either the Oceanic Air XS or the Atomic SS1 (comes with adapters).
