About Scubapro Classic BCD, Black/Grey

The Stabilizing Jacket remains the BCD style choice of experienced divers because of its dynamic control system. Stabilizing Jackets reject the idea of air bladders within BCDs; instead, they use internal air passages that basically embrace the diver and allow air to remain dynamic inside the jacket. This air flows freely to the jacket's highest point, which allows the diver to basically rotate around a bubble. This adds stability and creates ease of motion for the diver. As divers around the world will attest, this design's attributes have made the Stabilizing Jacket the most widely-used BCD of all time. The new Classic combines the best features past and present. This version incorporates a new look and radio frequency (RF) seam welding technology with Scubapro's unbeatable rugged performance the Classic is known for. Discerning divers will appreciate details like the easy-access chest pockets.

The Classic is equipped with the super cinch tank band Scubapro's stainless steel cam action buckle system for easy adjustment and secure grip. The Air cell is made from 420-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating that is puncture resistant. Quick-release integrated weight system offers more comfort and convenience. Pouches accommodate from 10lb to 12lb (4.54kg to 5.44kg) each (depending on size) and are secured in specially-designed pockets with oversized buckles. Two rear trim pockets counterbalance front weights and provide a well-balanced swimming position with 8lbs to 10lbs (3.6kg to 4.54kg) capacity. 6 stainless steel D-rings for long-life heavy wear & tear allow accessory attachments and 2 zippered and 2 Velcro pockets provide plenty of storage space for gloves, light, dive tables and more. Knife mounting grommets makes an emergency or utility knife easily accessible in any situation.

The Classic has a padded back pack that is fast drying for ultimate comfort in and out of the water. Fully Adjustable Cummerbund immediately adapts to different morphologies and suit thicknesses on the spot a stainless steel latch buckle and nylon webbing belt along with an adjustable sternum strap with squeeze-style" side release buckle make donning and doffing quick and easy.

The Classic BCD comes standard with Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator and has a 3-dump deflation system that enables divers to dump air from a variety of underwater positions. In the up-right position you can use either the left-or-right shoulder pull-dumps with the right shoulder pull cord or the left shoulder integrated cable activated power inflator shoulder dump. When inverted in the water the lower right rear pull dump can facilitate buoyancy trim. Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator provides a high inflation speed, especially at depth. Inflator has different shaped inflation and purge buttons for easy use even in extremely low light or murky water conditions. The Classic BCD provides 27lbs to 67lbs (12.25kg to 30.4kg) of lift depending on size and weighs 9.22lbs to 11lbs (4.18kg to 5kg). BCD comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick-disconnect hose, owner's manual, is black/grey in color and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

    Great BCD! Provides good stability and is very well made. Quality you can depend on. The only drawback with a vest type BCD is giving up the flexibility of shoulder strap adjustment making the doffing of the unit at boat side slightly more work. Otherwise, it's a great product.

    Got this on sale for a great price. I really wanted to like it because it had everything I wanted and then some. I just could not get over the tight fit around the neck and shoulders. I am a fit 6-2 220 lbs (was a swimmer in college) and the XL BCD squezed the front of my neck and shoulders with my arms at 90 degs off my chest. If I went to a XXL it would have been way to big in the waist. I'm holding onto it while I order another traditional-style BCD (not jacket) that should fit my build better. I have note taken a dive in it so I am sure LeisurePro will take it back. It is a great BCD from a technical and construction stand-point, but if you have broad shoulders the jacket-style cut is not going to work for you.

            This is a great piece of equipment...couldn't believe the value at closeout price. fit, weight placement, and control are great with this BC- as I said, it makes me look good- not in a fashion sense, but as a solid, balanced, in control diver- which is pretty sweet for a 51 year old newbie!

                I don't normally write reviews, but considering how much I depend on them myself I feel like I should when I've gotten such a fantastic product. This is one of the simplest, most durable BCD's I've ever used or seen in my years of diving. One word of caution: Choose your size wisely (SCUBARPRO BCD's tend to be a size larger: Someone normally a Large will fit comfortably into a Medium). If you've gotten a chance to try one on you know how comfortable they are, just keep in mind that the shoulder straps are actually part of the buoyancy pocket itself so there will be NO adjusting those. It's a hassle for "Rescue Diver" courses etc. when trying to remove but it's a wonderful piece of equipment at a good price.

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                ELIAS A  This BCD by Scubapro is heavy and klutzy, I got rid of mine.
                Paul L  How easy is this bc to get on/off before or after a dive? The jacket style bc I have now is easy to put on since it has the plastic clips you can use to make it snug. After using it for 16 years I'm looking for an upgrade.Just want to able to put it on and take it off by myself. Paul in Colorado
                JOEL B  I absolutley love my bc for choice,I dive off kayak and put my bc on in water,and sometimes boat dive and never had any problem putting vest on,everything fits very organized and bc can lift x-large bag of scallops off bottom that's huge,very tough and would purchase another if need be,but I feel this is a life long vest and is worth the extra money. Joel
                Paul L  I read that scuba pro BC's are larger than what you normally need and you often can order one that is a size smaller. I'm 5'10" and weigh about 190. Would a medium size BC work for me?
                Steve S  I would recommend the size Large. If you don't like the fit you can exchange it using our PFF Guarantee.
