Comments about Scubapro Equator BCD, Black/Red:
I use this BCD almost daily and it stands up to everything I have thrown at it. It is easy to adjust, put on and remove - both on the surface and at depth. I just wish it came with trim pockets near the shoulders. I am a decent sized guy with a good lung capacity and without trim pockets I am vertical when I get neutral. A friend swapped me a couple of removable pockets that I attached to the top tank band and back to horizontal I went.
I love the quick release, integrated weight pockets on the front. Some brands use a latch mechanism in the pocket that will sometimes not quite catch and fall out if you're not careful. With these I know they are staying when I click them back in.
