About Scubapro Glide X BC with Air 2

This new Scubapro Glide X BC will allow you to experience extremely comfortable diving. The Scubapro exclusive jacket style wrap-around air bladder retains its cradle like shape even when fully inflated. Fully adjustable, it comes with an integrated weight system and a wide range of exceptional features. The Glide X is a weight integrated design with both releasable weight pockets with capacities from 20lbs to 24lbs (9kg to 11kg) and non-releasable rear trim weight pockets with 6lbs to 10lbs (2.7kg to 4.5kg) capacities. The BC comes equipped with Scubapro's a stainless steel cam-action buckle system for easy adjustment and sure grip. The BCD bladder is made from durable 420-denier nylon with a polyurethane external coating, a urethane internal laminate and is radio frequency (RF) welded for airtight integrity.

A custom fit is ensured with the BCD's fully adjustable cummerbund, torso, waist and sternum adjustable strap assemblies. All straps are equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. The BCD provides ultimate comfort with its rotating torso buckles, and padded back pack. Attachment and storage or accessory items are not a problem with the 4-stainless steel D-rings and 2-zippered side pockets. The BC also has grommets for mounting of a BC knife.

To control your buoyancy the Glide X comes with a large shoulder overpressure relief valve with manual pull dump cord and Scubapro's Air 2 breathable inflator is also equipped with a rapid pull dump mechanism with cable pull for easy deflation of the air bladder. The Glide X BCD comes in multiple sizes with lift capacities ranging from 22.5lbs to 38.2lbs (10.2kg to 17.3kg) and weighs 8.62lbs to 10.16lbs (3.9kg to 4.60kg) depending on the BCD's size. BCD is available in multiple colors, comes with an owner's manual and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

The Glide X BCD 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 3/8" threaded 27.56" (70 cm) high-flow low-pressure hose and owner's manual.

Great BCD


This BCD has all the features any diver would want (I can't speak for technical divers - different ball game). Another reviewer had an issue with the integrated weights. I try to always use soft weight pouches but recently in the Bahamas I was not given a choice. Hard weights only. The trick is to push hard weights to the rear of the integrated patches before inserting and securing the clips. I haven't had a problem with the pouches falling out. Always snug and secure. Four well positioned "D" rings for all sorts of set ups. Pocket clip in right pocket, knife grommets on left pocket dump valves where you need them and (BEST OF ALL) - integrated handle inside back which none of my other six buddies have on their BC's, and complain about it each time we dive I'm sold on scuba pro and especially on the glide


A Great BCD But Not Without Issues


I used this BCD in Key Largo last Summer and noticed when I used hard weights, the weight pockets slipped out of the BCD. They still remained attached via the large plastic clip, but they would not stay in the BCD. This occurred repeatedly during several dives. I read an article on weight pocket issues in the June 2013 edition of "Undercurrent" and found that the Cressi Travel Lite BCD had the same issue: the weights cause the pockets to fold and double-back on themselves, causing the weights to fall out. Their solution: put a thin sheet of solid plastic in the weight pocket so that it can't "double-back."


Bombproof BC, you will love it


I love this BC. It is built well and it is ruggedly simple. Everything on it has a purpose and everything is where it should be. Other BCs have more bells and whistles but I don't think that is always a good thing. I am 5'11" 195 lbs and the large fits perfectly. I have used it both in the tropics and for Colorado reservoir diving and it is good to go. Holds you in a perfect orientation when floating on the surface. Not the lightest or most compact BC for traveling but fits in my baggage just fine.
