    Comments about Sherwood 2013 Silhouette BCD:

    There really is nothing seriously wrong with this product, so let me explain why I gave it a 2. First during an early dive using this BC the joint where the inflator/deflator hose attaches to the shoulder of the BC, there is a valve that allows air to exit the BC. That valve fell off during a dive and presented a serious safety issue. Specifically I no longer had a BC to provide buoyancy because any air I put in the BC immediately exited through that joint. The dry suit I had on solved the problem. All that was required was that this valve be screwed on properly. So this was not done when it was initially assembled and a quality control inspection, was either not done or they missed this. Next don't buy a jacket BC unless you strictly do recreational warm water diving, and then buy one with integrated weights. Regarding all my scuba equipment outfitting getting rid of my weight belt was the single most comfortable thing I have ever done.
