Not recommended youth just starting scuba.

        Comments about Oceanic Explorer Youth BCD:

        I figured that if this BCD is commonly used as a youth rental, it must be good for the Jr. Scuba courses. That is where I was wrong. This a very difficult BCD for kids to use when learning to scuba dive. With just a moderate amount of air the BCD opens like wings. Making it difficult to nearly impossible to do the BCD removal and replacement drill. The weight systems Velcro attachment requires an adults strength to pull out. The placement of the releases are hard to find in water. If you your kid knows how to scuba, this may be fine basic BCD. If this is a first BCD for a kid who is just starting, I would avoid. We found my wife's back inflate travel BCD (Escape) was simple and worked great.

            Bought this for my 10 year old son. Rental gear didn't fit him very good (4'10"/75lbs). He has used it on 4 dives so far and everything works well. It is a nice BCD w/integrated weight. Fits him good and I could immediately tell he was alot more comfortable in the water. Can't beat it for the price

            Shopper  Does the BC have dumpable weights?
            CHRISTOPHER L  It sure does! The silver-colored knobs on the side are the weight integrated pockets that would allow a diver to quick release their BC integrated weight system.
