Hey ladies! You wouldn't wear a man's suit to the office or a pair of man's shoes to go out dancing, so why would you wear scuba gear designed for male divers? The Bella BCD from SCUBAPRO is ideal for women who love to dive, expect excellence from their dive equipment, and want gear that fits like a dream.
The Bella BCD will hug your body and increase your equipment-based comfort like you've never experienced before. Its contoured hip indents will free you from that "digging in" feeling that is so common while wearing BCDs that were designed for men. The padded backpack and soft neoprene neck mean no more points of pressure and uncomfortable sore spots due to gear that rubs you wrong.
Don't worry - the Bella BCD isn't just about comfort; it is also about function. The zippered cargo pockets and conveniently located D-rings will allow you to easily stow and located your gear and any goodies you find along the way. In addition the SCUBAPRO-exclusive wraparound air bladder will allow you to remain streamlined and in control because, unlike most other air bladders, it doesn't stick like wings out when inflated; instead, it continues to hug you and retain its cradle-like shape, even when fully inflated. The Bella has a 5-point deflation system, which includes 3 dump valves; no matter your position or hand preference, you can easily, quickly, and safely dump air whenever necessary.
One-hand operation stainless steel cam action super-cinch tank band allows easy adjustment and security. Bella has 6 stainless D-rings for attachment of accessories. Scubapro's quick-release integrated weight system allows perfect buoyancy and fast weight release in the event of an emergency. Two rear trip pockets counterbalance front weights and provide a well-balanced swimming position. The Bella has a flexible cummerbund with sturdy plastic quick-release buckle that immediately adapts to different body types (morphologies) and suit thickness on the spot.
The Bella air-cell is manufactured from durable 420D Nylon with a Polyurethane Coating for air tight integrity. BCD is available in sizes XS to XL with lift capacities from 22.5 lbs (10.2 kg) to 42.7 lbs (19.4 kg). This product is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
The Bella comes equipped with Scubapro's AIR2 Breathable Inflator. When you took dive lessons you learned to perform specific skills to make you safe and comfortable underwater and at the surface. One of those skills was buoyancy control. Once you start diving for fun you use your buoyancy control devise constantly throughout the dive. Your octopus or Alternate Air Source devise on the other hand is never used unless there is an Emergency Out- of-Air Situation. Reacting properly in an Out of Air Situation can make the difference between an eventful dive and a tragedy. If your alternate air source and your BCD inflator devise are one and the same you will always know where to find it in an emergency. AIR2 is more than a simple inflator. Its components design takes advantage from the best regulator technology to guarantee maximum efficiency and reliability. As an inflator AIR2 provides perfect pressure control for a great buoyancy management. Ergonomic shape makes it easy-to-handle in any circumstances and it can be emptied by simply pressing the exhaust button.
AIR2's air balanced power inflator provides smooth and reliable inflation at all tank pressures. Single hose configuration eliminates the need for a separate alternate air source. Fixed VIVA flow vane for safe and uncomplicated use one-hand operation for instinctive and simple operation the self-flushing mechanism requires just one push on the purge to clear away all dirt. The AIR2 uses a classic downstream valve for less maintenance and reliability. The housing is a precision molded carbon fiber and techno-polymer impact resistant design that weighs 6.7 oz (190 g). The AIR2 comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Comments about Scubapro Bella BC with Air 2:
I used this BC on a live aboard cruise in the Bahamas. Sizing seems to run large. It was very comfortable. I was able to get 8 lbs of weight in pockets without any issues. I wish it had a couple of more o rings or clips for hanging items. BC is very comfortable even wearing it oversized. It is a little bulky when packing but overall compensates in the water.
Comments about Scubapro Bella BC with Air 2:
Weight pocket capacity 10 lbs, however, 6 or 7 lbs in weight pocket can fall out during dive. Good news clip stays engaged but pocket hanging is nuisance until you can get it back in. BC Pocket size too large for weight pocket; even addition of Velcro might help to hold weight pocket in place. Use four lbs and pockets stay in. Otherwise excellent product...poor design reflects on Scuba Pro techs.
