      A great BC, I've been using mine for several years
      It is very comfortable, regardless of tank/tanks configuration and in the water you hardly know it's there. very robust construction.if I want to be very pickie, the only downside is it is pretty heavy so excess bagage can be a issue traveling.

      Great product and very comfortable. Easy to operate, but I wish there was an air dump on the right shoulder (the 2009 model does).

        Comments about Zeagle Ranger LTD BCD with Ripcord System, 2008:

        It worked exactly like I expected and hoped. I was carrying 95 lbs of tank and lead and it was fairly comfortable on the treck to the water. It had pleantly of floatation unlike my last BC.
        The back bladder did not squeeze like my old jacket style BC. If I had known about the jacket squeeze before I never would have purchased a jacket style BC. I had no problem with floating vertical in the water with the trim weights.
        It was very easy to clean with the hose connection.

          Comments about Zeagle Ranger LTD BCD with Ripcord System, 2008:

          This is the first back inflation I've had. I got used to it quickly. Once I got the distro right with the trim weights, really easy to adjust attitude submerged. While it takes a little more effort than a jacket on the surface, I don't spend much time bobbing around there. Super well made product. Very adjustable. I also purchased the zip-on additional pockets, which are handy for things like a spare light, though I couldn't get them from Leisure Pro. If you are looking for a BC that is light and compact for travel, this isn't it. I don't care about that. This BC is perfect for me.

            Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  What are the diffrences between the 2009 ranger ltd and the 2008?
            LeisurePro S  Here are the differences between the models from the manufacurer's site: "The New LTD now comes standard in Smoke Gray... The shoulder is designed with the new super duty Airlock buckle that will swivel to adjust the harness to the body’s contour to eliminate binding and restriction of movement at the chest and underarm areas... the diver can easily add more D-rings and other accessories conveniently on the shoulder...We have also added a right-hand shoulder dump with a pull knob located conveniently on the inside edge of the right shoulder pad."
            Shopper  How much weight you can put into the individual side and rear trim pockets?
            LeisurePro S  The Ranger LTD can fit 15 pounds in each of the side Ripchord pockets and 10 pounds in each of the rear trim pockets (30 pounds in Ripchord system and 20 pounds of trim = 50 pounds overall).
            Shopper  I am 5'11" and weigh 180, what size do you recommend?
            LeisurePro S  I would recommend a large.
