About Zeagle Ranger BCD with Ripcord Weight System

The Ranger was the first BC to combine high quality heavy duty construction, weight integration, and rear flotation. Its introduction created a new category of buoyancy systems, and it is without doubt the most imitated BC in history! But it's the Rangers incredible versatility that keeps knowledgeable divers recommending it year after year. Zeagle's modular construction allows the Ranger to transition between tropical travel diving, rugged cold water diving in wet or dry suits, single or twin cylinders, and even (with optional bladder assemblies having up to 2 X 85-LB lift and easily mounted back-plates) technical diving!

Constructed of heavily reinforced 1050 denier ballistic nylon, the Ranger is comfortable, balanced, and can be used in an incredible range of diving activities. It is compatible with a variety of additional bladders, pockets, and other accessories. The waist closure is a single buckle combined with elastic waist panels. The standard bladder has a 44lb lift capacity.

If you are a diver who wants a rugged recreational buoyancy system, but also want one that can adapt and change to meet different diving needs, the Ranger is a system you won't outgrow.

          I was told that as a beginner I would't like the rear bladder design because it would not float upright on the surface, but this BCD is easy to adjust. I did not have any trouble. Also, easy to adjust to fit.

                Just Solid ... I was debating between the Stiletto and Ranger. Glad I went with the Ranger. I worried about additional bulk for travel but it is negligible. In addition it gives more options that the stiletto. Great purchase. Zeagle puts out a quality product. Only down size was that I think the yellow wieght bags should be included. Add another $40 to purchase these.

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                STANLEY R  Great BCD, Just need to come with weight bag holder, to help them from falling out. Lead is getting to high. But love the way it fix, in and out of the water.
                Doug H  What is there a difference (other than color) between the black and black/red models?
                Frank L  Color is the only difference.
                Shopper  I'm 5ft 11inches tall, waist is 36, chest is 42, weight is 175lbs. I am between a medium and a large. Is it possible to get the medium vest with the large shoulder rigs? I noticed on Zeagle's you tube sizing vid that they have a measurement for the shoulder fit which is not reflected in Leisurepros sizing chart?
                Frank L  We sell the shoulder sections here: http://www.leisurepro.com/p-zglss/zeagle-shoulder-section-for-bcd. You would buy the BC in the size you need, and then get the additional shoulder section.
