About Zeagle Ranger JR Youth BC

The Zeagle Ranger JR gives parents the choice of a quality BC made specifically for children. Using the same rugged construction as the legendary Ranger BC, the Ranger JR utilizes Zeagle's Personal Fit System to let you change out specific sections of the BC so it can grow right along with your child. The waist panel of the Ranger JR can be adjusted out to add several inches of growth room in the waist area. The shoulder section of the BC can be replaced with larger sections when the child starts inching up past the "knee high to a grasshopper" stage. These features combined with the same quality in material and construction means that the Ranger JR will last for many years saving you from having to buy a new BC after every growth spurt.

The Ranger JR is made from the same heavily reinforced 1050-denier ballistic nylon like its adult version for strength and durability. Accessory attachment is provided with 2-stainless steel (SS) angled D-rings on the shoulders and 2-SS D-rings on the vest. The Ranger JR has an adjustable elastic waist panel, torso adjustable shoulder and sternum straps. The waist, shoulder and sternum straps are all equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy and quick donning and doffing. The Ranger JR back inflation BC provides 24 lbs. (10.9 kg) of lift and is equipped with Zeagle's Ripcord Weight System with a releasable weight capacity of 16 lbs. (7.26 kg) of block or soft weight. The BC comes equipped with Zeagle's Bx Power Inflator Mechanism. The Bx Power Inflator makes preventative maintenance easy with its threaded lower mechanism that allows the attachment of a garden hose for fast and easy inner bladder rinsing. The Bx is also connected to a cable activated pull dump valve for rapid deflation. Trimming buoyancy in any position is made easy with the additional lower rear over-pressure relief/pull dump valve with pull cord. The BCD weighs 5.6 lbs. (2.5 kg), comes with a low pressure quick disconnect hose with 3/8" threads, and made in the USA.

As stated it Grows as your child grows

I looked all over for a small BC for my 11 yr old. I settled on this one and am glad I did. My son has been using this for over a year now. The BC has 3 adjustable slots on each side for waist. You can actually unscrew the sides and adjust as your child grows. The back plate adjusts in a similar way. I also adjusted it smaller so that my 8 year old could attend the bubblemaker. When my 8yr old turns 10 and is able for OW I will purchase another one without hesitation.

XS is too small

Always buy one size larger than you think you need for a child - they will grow into it before you know it. I thought the design would accommodate "expansion" for a kid's growth, but it is not what they promote/advertise. You are basically looking to buy a new BCD every year as the amount of 'expansion' on the "JR" is slight. Otherwise, materials and construction quality is 'Zeagle' (the best.)

Zeagle Ranger Jr

By

from Grand Junction, CO, US

This is a perfect fit for some of my 10 to 14 year old students. Just got my Grand Daughter in the water and se is small 10 year old. Gear weigh's more than her, but she just put's in on in the water and she does great. She even cleaned the pool walls for me. This works great for small kids.

For any petite women

By

from Playa Blanca, Cocle, PA

Im a pro diver and I purchased this cause all XS bcd for women where still too big, Im 5'1 and 105 pounds. This bcd fits me well. Easy to clean. Only downsize is that cannot reach pockets so easy. Very comfortable and buoyancy is perfect. I like the double tank straps.

My ten year old loves it

By

I got this so my son could learn to dive. He's taking his junior cert and I'm told that many operators don't stock junior sized rental BC's. Their kind of hard to find. This seems like it has enough adjustments to make it useable for a long time as he grows -- and then his brother will use it.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Douglas Y  Fit my son perfectly and ships well. Not too bulky
Michael Z  Can you swap out the shoulder section. I have one and my daughter is growing out of it. Has anyone done it?
KEVIN F  The shoulder section is extendable in the back. Lift the velcro and extend the webbing on the clips. If you have already extended it to the max, then you would need to move to the adult sized Ranger. Zeagle does not make multiple sized shoulder sections for the Jr. Ranger.
Michael Z  Can this be adjusted to a larger size?
MICHAEL S  The BCD is adjustable, but not to the extent that it could be worn into adulthood. But unless the diver is large for their age, it will last for several years, if using beginning at age 10. We have been extremely pleased with the product
dave b  hi we have had kids upto about 100lb in it after that i use a scuba pro pilot xxs
ROB A  Yes it can, however to thing an 18 yr Old can use the same bc as a 10yr old is pushing it.
Michael Z  My daughter is 13 now, 5ft 2 inches and about 110 lbs, Hoping to get a few more years out of it. Spoke to Zeagle. Considering buying larger shoulder set for it.
Tom P  It can be adjusted, but not to a degree that will make you entirely satisfied. I expected greater modularity and easier ability to purchase tje replcement straps and elements for expandimg it as my child grew. You will find yourself giving this one to a friend or selling it online and tjen starting over with another purchase for your child. Don't buy this BCD on the basis/feature of expansion. You will be disappointed.
