About Tusa Selene II BCD with Active Purge Assist, Black

The BCJ-9300C Selene II is an updated and redesigned model of the best-selling ladies BCJ-9100 Selene. Designed exclusively for the female diver, the Selene II's comfortable fit is supported by a number of leading technologies. In addition, the BCJ-9300C is equipped with Tusa's Active Purge Assist System (A.P.A.) optimizing jacket performance.

Tusa's Active Purge Assist (APA) System is a Revolutionary new BCD Accessory Technology. This Pneumatically Assisted Purge System and newly designed OPEV (Over Pressure Exhaust Valve) offers Significantly-Enhanced Flow-Rates over a Standard Inflator System, which allows for Immediate Purge and Inflation Response. Additionally, the APA is Incredibly Streamlined Reducing-Drag and Bulkiness. The System is designed for Low-Maintenance and Easy Care, Reducing Inflator Malfunctions and an Add-On Replacement Accessory on most Tusa BCD's.

The APA Ergonomic Design fits Comfortably in your Hand when Trimming Buoyancy Underwater. It has a Cable-Activated Pull-Dump Mechanism allowing the Diver to Pull-Down on the Inflator to Quickly Dump Air when needed. The Corrugated Hose has Clips to Route the Low-Pressure Hose coming from your First-Stage Regulator to Further Reduce Drag and Increase the Streamline Profile when Diving.

Tusa's Advanced Weight Loading System (AWLS) allows the diver to insert weights into the weight-cartridges and loading them easily into the front of the BC jacket. Additionally, with weight distribution to the shoulder area, the weighted-down feeling that is traditionally associated with weight belts is eliminated. Weight-cartridges can accommodate from 6lbs (2.72kg) to 8lbs (3.63kg) of weight in each cartridge and two rear trim pockets can hold up to 4lbs (2kg) in each non-dump-able pocket. The weight cartridge is easy to release in an emergency, but the safety lock makes sure that it is not released accidentally.

The key to comfort with the Selene II BCD is its Independent Harness System." (IHS) The IHS isolates the BC jacket's harness from the air cell, tightly supporting the tank even with changes in air cell inflation/deflation. The IHS prevents tank slippage and eliminates any gaps between the tank and your back. The Selene II BCD uses Tusa's next generation IHS featuring an integrated carry handle, additional adjustability to dial in a perfect fit and a neutrally buoyant construction allowing the diver to Shed the Lead" removing approximately 2 lbs (1 kg) of lead from their system. Tusa's Ultimate Stabilizing Harness (USH) completely eliminates tank roll and delivers an amazing fit. The USH securely holds the air cylinder in place with optimally placed rails and brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight.

The RITETITE Buckle is a 2-Position Cam Strap for Quick-and-Easy Adjustment. While the strap is being looped through the buckle, the buckle stays in place without needing to be held. This allows for more Control-and-Stability. This feature is part of all Tusa BCJ's. The BCD has an Adjustable Sternum Strap that has 2 positions for Maximum Comfort and can be removed. High Bladder Line, side of the bladder is contoured to ensure smooth hip movement and a more comfortable fit. Enhanced Back Pad

High Density Compartmentalized Foam and Plush Padding are used for the Lumbar-and-Back for a More-Comfortable-and-Contoured Fit.

The Selene II BCD Shell is made from Heavy-Duty 840/420 Denier Nylon for Superior Strength and Durability with an Internal Urethane Lamination for Air Tight Integrity. BCD has 4-Zippered Pockets, 2-Large and 2-Lower Accessory with a Drop-Down Right-Side Mesh Pocket. Deep Padded Torso-Adjustable Shoulder Straps provide Excellent Comfort around the Back-Side and on Shoulders and Adjustable Waist Strap with Cummerbund provide precise Adjustment of Harness. All Straps are equipped with Squeeze-Style" Side-Release Buckles for Easy Donning and Doffing. Trimming Buoyancy is Easy with 3-Dump/Overpressure Relief Valves. BCD provides 19lbs to 32lbs (8.62kg to 14.5kg) of Lift depending on the BCD Size. Accessory Attachment is made Easy with 3-Stainless Steel D-Rings and Knife Grommets.

    Comments about Tusa Selene II BCD with Active Purge Assist, Black:

    I'm an Instructor, and I bought this BCD, XS size this summer.
    I was a MARES bcd addict before but their XS size is more like a S, which is a bit uncomfortable when you're really small.
    The fit of this BCD is perfect, easily adjustable, nice pink design, good quality, and... huge pockets (When you're instructor that's important) !!
    Also the active purge assist is very practical, remind me the "I3" system, cheaper and very efficient.
    Only Minus for me will be : Very heavy BCD, about 8 pounds which is a lot for an XS, if you have to carry a lot of luggage that's not a "light" BCD.

        Comments about Tusa Selene II BCD with Active Purge Assist, Black:

        I bought this BCD for my wife. It fit her great, and the APA inflator/deflator really made it easy for her to maintain peak buoyancy. This BC has lots of attachment points for accessories, and seems to fit her great. The sizing chart ran a little small, but I see others think it runs large. No problem though - LP lets you return it until it's right!

        Comments about Tusa Selene II BCD with Active Purge Assist, Black:

        This is a great BC if you don't plan on advancing in SCUBA. It is ONLY compatible with air and not NITROX. I didn't find this out until after I bought it and went through the EANx course. So if you plan on only doing OW without EANx, it's great. If you want to go more advanced, get something that is rated for at least 40%.

          when i was in open water diver course, the school lent me this BC(BCJ-9300C by tusa), I felt this BC is easy to use and adjustment. It fit comfortably with my body. After purchasing this BC, I have diving 4 tanks, I'm still satisfying with this BC. But check the size carefully, I'm 169cm tall and 55kg, the XS size is enough.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          JENNY H  returned. Good quality, but too heavy and bulky for me, as I travel to dive...
          Flanker J  I am 5'5", 132lbs and a 34" waist.What size would be best? How much does it weigh? is it too bulky?
          AUDRY N  I am very similar in size and I wear a Small. This BC is not too bulky, and it has EVERYTHING you could ever need for warm or cold water diving. It is incredibly comfortable and I felt very safe. You can custom adjust almost every possible strap on this BC to make it perfect just for you. I loved wearing soft weights what a pleasant change. It is also, subtly stylish.
          Stephanie V  How much lead weight can each pocket hold? How many pockets are there? 2 quick release and 2 in the back?
          CLAIRE K  There are 2 quick release and 2 buckled pockets in the back. I can fit at least 2, 3 pound weights in each of the quick release pockets and at least one 3 pound weight in each of the back pockets
