    Comments about OMS Featherweight Travel BCD:

    Just got back from a week of warm water diving with the BCD. Overall I liked it but was very unimpressed with the weight pockets. I was only diving with 10 pounds, a 3 and 2 pound in each pocket. Between myself and another diver who also has the same bcd we lost our weights 3 times on a total of 11 dives. Single lead plates or single soft weight would likely work well but if you are using the typical resort dive weight that is a mixed of a few weights there is the possibility of having an issue. Not good if you are deep.
