    I bought this BCD specifically with travel in mind as my current Diverite Transpac is too heavy when it comes to packing for an overseas dive trip and the usual airline weight allowance.
    I have only dived twice with the new BCD but can say I am more than impressed with the functionality and comfort of the BCD. It is a lightweight BCD but has all the necessary inclusions to make it my standard BCD for every day use.
    The only small downside is you do need to use a weight belt as the accessory pockets and tank band aren't really designed for adding weight pockets.
    Early days yet with this BCD but I don't foresee any issues with this BCD and on first impressions I can highly recommend the Scubapro Litehawk.

    I was very happy with Leisure Pro's service. The product was delivered in a timely matter. The BC is well made and out of durable materials. Seems comfortable when I tried it on. I prefer a hard plate in my BC. After trying it on with a tank attached, and leaning to my left and right the BC would slip in that direction. No matter how much I tightened the waist and shoulder straps on the BC it would slip. I understand the new version has added a hard plate. This is just my personal preference.

      Comments about Scubapro Litehawk BC, Black:

      In 1982 (about 33 years ago) I bought an 109/MK5 regulator. I have not touch them for the last 15 to 20 years. Last month I took them to the Scupapro dealer for service. The parts are hard to come by, but they managed to service it for me. It works just like new. That is what I call good service and product!

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          THEODORE G  needed a new BC this will work great for warm and cold water, has enough lift to fill most needs. Also lighter then most when traveling
          Russell P  Does the Scubapro Litehawk come with trim pockets and crotch strap fastener?
          NATIVE S  There is a pocket on each side of the waist strap, you would have to rig your own crotch strap, which is a good idea, because it does ride up.
          Shopper  I'm 6'1" and 180 lbs. My jacket size is about 42". Do you think the medium/large would work, or is the XL size a little better? I travel a lot and dive both warm in a 3 mm and cold with a 6 mm farmer john and jacket. Thanks.
          DANIEL E  I am 5'11" and 190 lbs. My jacket size is 41" I wear the medium/large and there is plenty of room. I think the XL would be too big for you.
