I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?

I picked this BC because of the compact size, light weight and features. So far I have been pretty happy with it and have only had one problem when I pulled the dump valve cord a little too aggressively. Other than that I have been very happy. It is quite compact and light weight. Its ideal for the diver who likes to take short trips where you are trying to travel light. Some have questioned the amount of lift for the after dive floating period while waiting for pick-up. it is a little on the light side in this regard - but I have not found this to be a problem. Since it is a back inflation it is quite nice in terms of trim in the water and I am happy to trade the on-service performance for the improved trim in the water (after all that is where I prefer to spend my time :-) Overall I give it 4.5/5 stars.
I got parts of this package, not the whole thing, because I wanted to build my own set. I got the travel bcd, which I promptly returned. It felt flimsy and of low quality. The releasable weight pouches were unbelievably hard to remove. I also got the regulator, which I decided to keep. It sometimes free flows when in the water, but that's not a big deal. Air supply is plentiful. My only gripe: the hose is kind of short and can hinder your movement. If i turn my head to the left too far the regulator pulls me back or comes off. My friend has the octo, which I suppose works well. We've never had to use it. I ended up getting an aqualung bcd with integrated secondary and a aries computer for psi and depth. Hope this helps.
I thought the price was great, and I like how it is lightweight and compact. Unfortunately, have not had much chance to use it so far but I did like the overall fit and finish and feel the one time I did get to use it.
I bought the BC - mainly because of it's light weight and the fact that its a wing type of BCD as opposed to jacket style.
It was a good price, lightweight, functional and simple.
I did not buy the entire package, but I did get the Cressi Air Travel BCD. I wanted a Travel BCD that I could easily carry in a carry on as my husband and I travel often and the cost of extra/heavy luggage keeps rising. The Scuba Gear Reports Travel BCs article helped me choose this BCD. (I can't copy the link here bc of LP rules).
So far, I love my BCD. It is very comfortable, has many D rings, and looks great! I recommend it!
