About Sea Quest Balance BCD with SureLock Weight System, Black

The freedom of back inflation: Many divers prefer the back inflation as it provides greater freedom of movement and a lower profile. The Balance couples a rear 3-dimensional bladder with a patented harness system that provides exceptional support and load distribution. Looking for the best in fit and comfort in a streamlined package? Look no further than the Balance. The Balance uses the time proven Exclusive Sure Lock releasable weight system with a weight capacity of 20lbs (9kg) and has two non-release rear weight trim pockets holding a maximum combined 10lbs (4.5kg).

Built to last, constructed of Armor-Shield Cordura, 840 and 420 Denier Nylon. The large contoured back pack helps stabilize even the largest tank, and the patented Tank Traction System (TTS) ensures the cylinder is firmly attached to the BCD.

I brought this bcd and have used it on over 200 dives i thought it was great until the chest harness tri load fitting broke. I tried to get aqualung to send me new ones to replace but they told me they cant do that and i would have to send my BCD at my cost even though its under warranty to them in california. Its the middle of Lobster season and i dive 3-5 times a week i cant ship my bcd off for 2 weeks to get fixed. they did not listen to me and were unable to help in any way. The fitting is of a cheaply made plastic and will undoubtable break on most of their BCD's its on. for now my BCD is being held together by zip ties it works but it's uncomfortable.

I will not be buying Aqualung ever again

    Comments about Aqualung Sea Quest Balance BCD with SureLock Weight System, Black:

    My wife and I got two of these when she got certified three years ago. Since then we have been to Belize, Cozumel, Cancun, Grand Cayman and Florida. most of these trips have been commercial flights when the BCs were packed and poorly handled. We have had no problems with their fit, function or quality and recommend them highly.

      Comments about Aqualung Sea Quest Balance BCD with SureLock Weight System, Black:

      I live on the ocean. Every day after work if the seas are diveable I paddle out and burn a tank off my kayak. On the wekends I dive deep wrecks and ledges of my boat. My workhorse BC is the Balance. It is tough, comfortable and has everything a diver would need. My oldest one I've had for over 5 years and over 500 dives. It's never had a problem. Don't listen to this guy who gave it bad reviews. He had to have dropped a steel tank on the plastic or closed his/trunk/lift gate on them to break the plastic tri clip fittings. They may be plastic but they are strong. They are professionally sewed on so of course they are not going to just mail him the parts. It would be a liability. Buy this BC with confidence. It is one of the best there is!

        Bought this in 95' or 96', It is the best b.c i have tried on. I was lucky that my instructor recommended this.I own a Cressi b.c too but its jacket style which i find abit tighter in the winter with a wetsuit on,the balance is not tight on your chest when fully inflated,The balance is less drag when your against the current with room to put your hands between your tank and your back when your on the move. wish the 2 back-weight pockets were designed to hold more than 2-lbs each, i squeezed 3-lbs in there though.
        600-700 dives later, i have replaced parts but its been worth it.

            I got this several years ago and have used it for about 100 dives and really like it. Nice compact design is light weight, very very comfortable. Never had a problem with the weight pockets. Only thing I would like to see is another pocket on the left side.....
