      Comments about Scubapro Glide X BC:

      Everything you could ask for in BCD. Features galore. I'm 6'1" - 220 pounds and purchased size XL and it provides more than enough lift for me and is very comfortable. The 4 D-rings are positioned perfectly, the weight integrated system is convenient and easy to use. Fully adjustable in every way. The cam lock on the tank strap secures the tank like no other. Have yet to find one thing I would change about this BC. I've used other brands, but I am sold on Scubapro.

        Comments about Scubapro Glide X BC:

        Will be using this as our BCD for both local and travel dive going forward. These replace the Mares Dragon and Kaila.

        Fit very well and the weight of the tank does not tend to pull the collar strap upward against the neck at the front. Noticed that the cummerbund on the Mares are elastic while this one is non-elastic, probably making it more able for the tank to be supported at the waist.

        Very easy to don. The pockets are much larger and unobstruted. The Dragon/Kaila's pockets are reduced by the weight buckle hardware.

        The tank Super-Cinch buckle is fantastic as it can be detached so that the strap can be routed around the tank and reconnected. No need to lift the whole BCD and struggle inserting the tank through the strap loop anymore. The upper tank loop is adjustble so that the tank height can be set.

        The purge valves are lighter to pull. The main purge valve can be open by pulling the inflator tube, good feature.

        It is well manufactured with all the pieces properly assembled. As said, it is better than I expected.

          Comments about Scubapro Glide X BC:

          This is a great BC and I say this after close to 100 dives and 3 years of use. I have yet to have any issues whatsoever. It still looks great and functions flawlessly. The only issue I ever had was figuring out how I would rig the thing and after three years and multiple set ups I think I've finally got it right for me. I have really come to appreciate the fact that I can adjust this BC a lot. There is also a small band to hang over the tank valve so my tank sits at the same spot on every dive. The trim pockets are also a nice touch but only occasionally used. The weight integration is also very nice and easy to use. This BC has outstanding lift I am about 225 pounds and have never had to worry about surfacing. I have no issues with being restricted underwater and float face up once on the surface without the need to have to lean back. This BC also travels well. My entire dive kit minus regulator fits nicely into my Dive n roll. Without hesitation, I would buy this exact model again !!

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Thanks guys for your input on sizing much appreciated as mentioned I think I'm between the med/large (pity they dont do a ML size.. - I'm diving at the weekend and will use a Scubapro Pilot Medium (rental) - I used large in the Pilot last week with a 2.5mm and had every strap maxed out and it was still a tad large - I think the Glide is about the same sizing as the Pilot so hopefully the weekend will tell me whether to go for the Glide in med or Large. Quick question on the cumberbund - Scubapro says the Glide is 38inch and up - can it be adjusted to smaller than that - again I think my size there is around 36 inch. thanks?
          Kasia W  The cummerbund features fully adjustable straps that allow perfect custom fit. You will be able to adjust it to 36".
          Shopper  Hi there, need some advice on size for the Scubapro Glide - I'm 5ft 11.5 inch tall, weight 178-180lbs, waist 35 inch, chest 40-41inch. Diving in 3mm summer and 5mm wetsuit in colder water - I think I'm between Med and large - any help would be appreciated?
          KEVIN R  I bought this bc for my son and it sounds like you are the same size as him. I bought a large and it fits fine.
