    Travel BCD that works like a normal BCD

    Comments about Scubapro GO BC:

    I just finished 14 Caribbean dives with this BCD ranging from 37ft to 115ft.

    I was a little skeptical about lack of a real backplate, but after I put a tank on it and walked from the shop to the boat, my skepticism vanished.

    The BCD is truly light weight. I got the XL and it easily folds up to fit in my carry on bag. The XL gives a whopping 42 pounds of lift making it suitable for usage with a drysuit.

    I put my BCD on in the water and had no problems, even though the straps are thin. In my opinion it floats more like a back inflate then a vest because of the way the BCD expands away from your body.

    I like the large dump knobs. Easy to find. 4 metal d rings. It comes with is own bag which is a nice plus

    I've seen some complaints about the pockets. They are small. With 4 pounds in each pouch (max 10 in each) I was able to access my slates, flashlight and cpr mask (out of its case) under water with no problem. 10 in each would probably be a different story.

    I like the 2 tank straps. I added 2 XS Scuba Single Weight Pockets to the top straps. Now I can add up to 30 pounds of lead

    Size. Thats tricky. For me 6 foot, 215 pounds, 38 inch waist, the XL was a little big in a 2mm suit. Manageable. I dive mostly 7mm with a 3mm vest. For that it fits perfectly

    I found it hard to really find anything negative to say about the BCD other then lack of trim pockets. Some may think the bladder material is too thin. Not a real issue if you control your buoyancy and stay off the coral as you should do anyway

    • When Every Pound Counts

    Comments about Scubapro GO BC:

    This is a nice travel BC due to its durability and weight, however, it is far too large and does not match the sizing charts provided by SP. I am 5'8", 160 pounds and a fit build, and the medium BC is way too large. With only a rash guard, the shoulder straps and cumberbund have to be cinched all the way down and there is still too much play across my waist and chest, so the BC constantly floats up on me. If diving in a wetsuit, the fit would be much better, but I bought this specifically for long-haul tropical diving flights where every pound counts in my checked luggage and so I wish I would have bought one size down.

      Superb travel BCD. Light , compact but durable and robust with it. Very comfortable and easy to adjust. It arrived within a week and I am in the middle east. Hard to fault either manufacturer or retailer, I will buy Scubapro equipment from this site again. I have recommended it to my students.

        Adam's review is complete, accurate and says it all. I will add that the way this BC folds up into its own bag is just fantastic. In fact I am going 5 stars because to me that outweighs the pocket issues. I think small pockets are to be expected in a travel BC. I also got the AirII and love it.

          Comments about Scubapro GO BC:

          I love this BC. As advertised, it's lightweight, and easy to pack. However, when it's on, it doesn't seem or look all that different from a non-travel BC. It has way more lift than I need(I got the XL, and it fits me perfect). In fact, just by switching to this BC, I need 6lbs less than usual. It's also very easy to get on and off, in or out of water, and quick and easy to fold up and pack it back in it's bag.

          If I were going to complain, I'd have 2 things really. The first is that once you have the weight pockets in, there's not room to keep much in your pockets. Once you inflate at the surface, it's very tight to reach into them for anything. Not that big of a deal for me though.

          And 2, it holds 20lbs weights max. There are no trim pockets, but I suppose you could add some. However, its very lightweight, and the amount of weight I needed went down. Even in a 5mil wetsuit, I only needed 10lbs, and I'm 250lbs @ 5'11". So this was a great buy to me, because I don't enjoy really cold water. So if I needed to gear up enough that I needed more than 20lbs, I don't think I'd be going at all.
