    I purchased the Excursion around a year ago and have about 40 dives with it.
    I found the number of D rings useful for hanging my compass and dive lights as well as an anchoring point for the ropes when ice diving.
    I liked having the power inflator dump valve... just pull down on the power inflator and you start to sink... this is great when you are decending feet first and easier than finding the rear dump valve.
    The one thing I should have purchased for it is the integrated air for the power inflator - I dont care for the octo hanging off the BC.
    Great BC for beginner or advanced, recreational or tech diver.

    I have dove this product for more than 300 dives, so obviously it was adequate for my varied style of diving: recreational, cavern, ocean, and deco. The product held up well; however, the bladder is subject to puncture if not careful. I have several buddies who had to have theirs patched.

    With this BC you get what you pay for; unfortunately, you get too much in my opinion. Way too much stuff hanging off this thing. World record dives have been made with 3 D-rings; this BC has darn near a dozen. Thats a lot working against streamlining and a lot of annoyance. But don't worry. At least you'll look good.

    Lifting and carrying this BC is no small task. The integrated weight pockets flop around making transport cumbersome and wearing it awkward. This BC is inherently heavy without lead, so at the end of the dive day you're faced with two options: carrying the wet massive floppy beast (you will get wet) or dealing with the hassle of removing the weight pockets and not losing them or forgetting to reinstall them later.

    Overall this is an adequate BC for wide range of diving, but not an optimum BC for any specific type of diving.

    Comments about Oceanic Excursion BC, Black:

    I bought this to replace an obsolete BCD (different brand), and so far the Excursion has been superior in every way. I particularly like the fit/comfort, the adjustability, and the number and location of attachment points. The only thing that keeps it from getting a "perfect" rating from me is the drop-down pocket, of which I am not a fan. Otherwise, I am very satisfied and would highly recommend this BCD.

            just a great BCD. I love the back inflate as it makes it easy to keep a level profile while swimming. The integrated weights dump quickly and easy.

            I only wish there was one more dump valve.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  I am 5'10", 170 pounds, 32" waist, lean/muscular build. Should I go with a size medium for this BC?
            JOHN Z  Yes, a medium size should fit you just fine. I am 5'8, 170 lb., with a 34 in. waist and it fits very well.
            Shopper  Does this BC have a solid back that sufficiently stabilizes the tank during your dive? Does the tank move around at all? Solid setup?
            JIM S  Have had an Oceanic Excusion BC for 2 years and made approximately 100 dives on it. It is an excellent BC and has not shown any wear in the 2 years of use...still looks new. The back is a curved hard plastic with a rubber pad that the tank fits snuggly into with one strap. I have not had any issues with the tank shifting around. I replaced the stock strap with a scuba-pro SS cinch-strap. The cinch-strap allows you to take the BC off a tank without pulling it over the top, and having to remove the regulator first. (I did this for my own preference and ease of changing tanks. I would have done this on whatever BC I purchased.) The Oceanic is an excellent BC and has no issues with the tank moving around on your back.
            Shopper  i am 6'2" but only have a 34" waist. I weigh in at about 195 lbs and am fairly lean/muscular. Unsure if i go for large or med? HELP
            JOHN M  Get a large. It should fit you well with or without a wet suit. Both my son and I have had the bcd for 3 years and are satisfied with it
