Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung Pearl BCD (2013 Style):
I’d been thinking of replacing my Mares Vector Chrome BDC with this Aqua Lung Pearl BCD (2013 Style) for over a year now and finally ordered it this for my B-day gift to myself.
I liked my Mares that I’ve had for over 10 yrs because it fitted me well with the 3 straps adjustments in front . But it didn’t have integrated weights which meant I needed a weight belt and all the discomfort that come with it.
Having lost a bit of weight I wanted a new one and the dive shop were I go (Who are also my instructors) suggested this BCD because of the fit. My instructor uses it even over her dry suit and says she wouldn’t want another BCD as a woman diver.
Just came back from my first dive trip with it and I am delighted by the comfort and ease of using it! Can’t wait for my next trip to dive with it again!
