        Comments about Aqualung Sea Quest Pearl BCD with Sure-Lock Weight System, Black/Aqua:

        The shape and cut of BC fit my wife perfectly, many adjustments available. Compared to previous BC she was able to drop 2-3 pounds of lead on consistant basis for every wetsuit type. No trapped air pockets with all the exhaust valves. No need for weight belt instead of pockets, these pockets stay in place. She is very happy with this BC. The two jacket zipper pockets are large for lights, surface marker and the extra safety "stuff".
        Only one down side the Lycra panel gets snagged by the velco very easily, its the only area that makes the BC look used after 70 dives.

        Comments about Aqualung Sea Quest Pearl BCD with Sure-Lock Weight System, Black/Aqua:

        This BCD is very nice to use with lots of bells and whistles and I have used it for the past 60 or so dives. Unfortunately, with the current checked baggage restrictions this BCD proved to be to bulky and heavy for travel.

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  What is the difference (justifying price discrepancy) between this model and this one- http://www.leisurepro.com/p-udrp/aqua-lung-pearl-bc-2013-style?adpos=1o1&creative=52511342773&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CIqC-uj4pL8CFY17fgodZaEAOQ
          Frank L  SQTPL is the older, now discontinued model. It is only available in large. The new design changes are really only cosmetic.
          Dayna F  Is this a comfortable fit? I am 5'4 118 lbs and wondering if a small would fit me. Also does anyone know how much the drop off weight pockets cost for this bcd?
          ELLEEN Y  The small should fit you. I am 5'10", 195 lbs and the large was too large. I should have gotten a medium. However, I was able to adjust the straps internally at the shoulders and adjust the waist band around the back. If you have a dive shop you may want to take it to them if you have a problem adjusting. It fits fairly well now. The weight pockets came with my BCD. Caution: I am a divemaster with many dives; so I was able to determine there was a problem on my first dive with the Pearl. The air valve (at the shoulder connection) on the power inflator was not properly connected/tightened. Therefore, the BCD would not hold air for long and I continually had to inflate it to maintain neutral bouyancy. My dive shop fixed it and it works fine now. Secondly, anumber of dives later,the shop told me there was a problem with some of the weight pockets holding at the catch in the BCD pocket holder. They also fixed that although I had had no problems. Bottom line - This is my 3rd BCD bought through Leisure Pro (LP)and the 1st that has needed adjustments. The price is significantly less than buying it in most dive shops. If you are comfortable with purchasing through LP, do so, but have it checked out at your dive shop for weight pocket security and power inflator connection.
