Intergrated weight systems?? y/n
It's not weight integrated but I prefer this style. You defintely need the accessory harness for a decent fit. As always great service from LeisurePro.
I own the '07 Silhouette (also available here on Leisurepro) and it does not have an integrated weight system. I don't believe that this one does either. Having said that, I really like my Silhouette BCD.
No, this BCD does not have integrated weights. This is a very very basic BCD with no frills at all. The webing is sub par, and so adjusting straps is quite dificult. This BCD makes a fine pool BCD due to it being very cheap, but I would not recomend this BCD for any outdoor diving at all - -spend a little more money and get a much better BCD for AquaLung.
No integrated weights. Need old school weight belt. This is a no frills bcd.

You'll not find an integrated weight system on any compensator in this price range. If that is a feature you must have, then you should suck it up and buy the Zeagle. I have equipment staged in several locals - the less I have to haul, the easier the travel. So the price point for the Sherwood makes more sense for me. Plus, if comfort is your top option, you'll be using bag weights rather than blocks, which puts even more stress on travel logistics. You'll find belts and block weights wherever you go, so you might as well learn to love them.
Does not have weight system. I use the BCD for travel.

The Sherwood Silhouette is NOT an integrated weight B.C.D. However, there are two deep pockets that allow you to put in extra weights if you want to. Integrate weight systems are an issue of personal preference. We prefer to not have them as the BCD with a tank and regulator gets heavy. To add ten to 20 pounds of weight can make it more difficult to carry and maneuver.
The Silhouette is a very well built and dependable unit. I am personally impressed with the quality. We have seen numerous dive shops use them as rentals because they are so rugged. I have over 20 years of certified diving. IMO the Silhouette is a good value.
