    Comments about Sherwood Solaris Women's BCD:

    Hard to put integrated weights in the pockets while wearing the BC. After 3 1/2 years, the plastic backpack broke, releasing the tank belt and therefore, the tank.

    Nice Vest

    Comments about Sherwood Solaris Women's BCD:

    Very nice vest. We bought 2 for the family. Both the wife and daughter love the BCD's. It has lots of nice features, like pockets/an extra shoulder vent/and back padding.

    Our only problem so far (4 dives) is with the ring locations. The upper ring is a bit high, and the lower a bit low for the octopus. It could use one right between the current locations to make it more convenient...I have no doubt we will get something figured out, though, or get used to it the way it is.

        Comments about Sherwood Solaris Women's BCD:

        The bladder is completely in the back so it doesn't press on the sides of the torso as some vest BCDs do. The integrated weight pockets sit perfectly above hips.

        Couldn't have made me happier

        By Jen Jen

          Comments about Sherwood Solaris Women's BCD:

          This is the second weight integrated BC that I have owned and I couldn't be happier. In the cooler waters off the coast of CA this BC works like a charm. It holds enough weight and has plenty of lift to keep me comfortably out of the water. Once I got my weight trimmed out I didn't notice any tendency of the BC to lean me forward like some people told me I would. The best thing of all is that it fits me like a glove, doesn't move around at all, and it is so streamlined in the H2O. On my recent trip to the Bahamas it was so nice to have a less bulky BC in the dive bag, it freed up space for other things and probably saved us some weight too. One last thing, the clip in weights are such an improvement from the Velcro my other BC had, Click, they are in and they are not going to fall out.
