        Comments about Tusa Platina Evolution Cubic BCD, Black (BCJ-5560):

        Being a photographer be aware that you carry a bit of weight up front and you do not want an integrated BCD because when on the surface they will tend to tip you forwards making it difficult to control your floatation. A classic jacket style is more suited as it keep you upright without a tendency to make you lean forward. This BCD really does lift you out of the water more than your average BCD which is nice to know in choppy water. The fact that its made out of 1000 denier material makes it particularly tough and I trust long-wearing.

          Comments about Tusa Platina Evolution Cubic BCD, Black (BCJ-5560):

          Item was purchased to help our SAR unit with a BC that had sufficient lift and adjustability for size. All our unit BC's are shared among several people. This one met that criteria and was fairly priced.

          Have had no problems with it and would recommend it for all recreational divers.

            I have been very pleased after about 55 dives with this BC. I really like the D-ring set up for quick, easy attachments. It is really well constructed and have not experienced any problems. Very comfortable and in my opinion a good buy.
