    I've been using this for 2 years-- about 200 dives, warm and cold water, and rescue diver certification. The i3 inflator system is great-- easy to use, always at hand, minimizes clutter in the busy chest area. The hybrid back/jacket design is streamlined, doesn't squeeze when inflated, and makes it easy to float upright at the surface. Quick-release weight system is outstanding-- easy to load and easy to use. Zippered pockets hold a lot but could be easier to reach.

    What a great concept. I sent my first PRO QDI3 back twice due to inflator leakage. They replaced the gasket with a new improved one the second time and it leaked. They replaced it with a new one the third time - it leaked. Finally replaced with a PRO QD Unlimited - It ripped around the waist band. Replaced with a new PRO QD2009.Now im happy - A great BCD without any FAULT.IF YOU PURCHASE THE I3 - GOOD LUCK!

        I love this BCD, I've owned it for a couple of years now and it still functions perfectly. The only comment I can offer up is they do run big, wish I had 1 size smaller. Otherwise a great investment. If everyone actualy bought it that says they're going to (usually on the dive boat) and LeisurePro paid me a comission, I'd be a rich guy.

          The integrated inflate/deflate valve is fantastic! No more fumbling for toggles and multiple release points. Otherwise, the BC is well made and versatile, making it the perfect dive product. I already have one and this was a purchase for my son, who is always borrowing mine.

            Comments about Seaquest Pro QD with i3 Technology BC:

            I usually have to wear quite a lot of weights when diving, and therefore had to wear a weight belt as well as the intergrated pockets. With the PRO QD I3 the weight pockets are double the size so I don't have to wear the weight belt, this makes diving so much more comfortable, and if you suffer from lower back pains, the lack of a weight belt eliminates the pain. Just fantastic.
