About Zeagle Wicked Ranger BCD

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. The Zeagle Wicked Ranger BC is equipped with Zeagle's 30lb (13.6kg) Capacity Ripcord Weight System, 20lb (9kg) Capacity Rear Trim Weight System both excepting Hard Block and Soft Weights.

The Unique Fabric is a Designer-Styled Stone Washed "Denim Type" Nylon CORDURA material. A "Repair" Patch has been added to the outside of the Utility Pocket for Style". The Webbing has a Seasoned Appearance. The High-Strength Solid Brass D-Rings are Uncoated-and-Pre-Oxidized to add to the Design-Style. The Pre-Stressed Plastic Hardware is Heavy-Duty throughout. These features give the Wicked BC the look of "Experience" and are unique in diving today. The Waist Closure is a Single Buckle combined with Elastic Waist Panels. The BCD has Torso Adjustable and Sternum Straps. All Strap Closures are equipped with Squeeze-Style" Side Release Buckles for Easy Donning and Doffing. The Shoulders are designed with Wider Straps for Added Comfort.

The Standard-Bladder has 44lbs (20kg) Lift Capacity. BCD has 2-Large Zippered Utility Pockets and 4-Brass D-Rings on the Shoulders and 2 on the Vest all for Storage and Attachment of Accessory Items. The Wicked Ranger has 11" (27.9cm) Grommets for Mounting of Twin Cylinder Set-Ups. Zeagle has placed a tribal design on the vest and bladder. This is to add cultural appeal and individuality to the product. With the number of people wearing ink these days, it seems like a natural addition to this unique concept. Each Wicked BC includes a small temporary wicked tattoo just for fun. 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.

BCD is equipped with Dual Rear Pull Dump Valves and Zeagle's Bx Power Inflator. The Bx Inflator is unique in its design. Rinsing the Internal Bladder completely after every day of diving is important to the life of the Bladder. The Bx Inflator has a special Threaded Coupling that allows you to remove the Power Inflator Mechanism and attach the Inflator Hose to a Standard Garden Hose. This unique feature allows you to Fully Flush-Out the Entire Bladder with clean fresh water removing Salt, Sand or other Contaminates that can cause wear and deterioration of the Inner Bladder. Of course, this product is backed by Zeagle's usual high standards and Limited Lifetime Warranty. BC weights 8.4lbs (3.8kg) and comes with an Owner's Manual.

    Comments about Zeagle Wicked Ranger BCD:

    While I don't care much about the tribals and 'worn' look, this is a rock solid BCD. It can stand up to heavy use or harsh conditions.
    It can comfortably hold a lot of weight which is needed in cold water diving with a bunch of enviromental gear on. But it also has plenty of lift to counter all that weight as well. Easily enough lift to keep two people afloat at the surface in an emergency situation.
    The Ranger's modular design makes it versatile and Zeagle offers accessories designed to fit perfectly. This one BCD can do everything from singles to doubles and recreational to Tec and professional diving. I like being able to hook a hose directly to the bladder to rinse it out.
    Plenty of D-Rings and other mounting points. The storage pockets are large enough for most anything.
    It needs to come with the mesh weight pockets- highly suggest getting them. Small weights can slip thru the weight dump system.
    More difficult to remove weights and hand them up to a boat than more common systems. A bit of a chore to restring the system, but it does work well in ditching weights when you need to.
    The BCD is a bit large and heavy for travel. In warmer water you will won't need the weight capacity or lift of this BCD, but it's awesome in cold water.

      It is very easy to write a review for a great product. This is a great BC, easy to control, fits very well, has tons of points of attachment, comes with trim packets and looks great! Love it. I feel that I could of been OK with a smaller bladder (was looking at Zeagle Brigade 35lb from scubatoys), but who knows what the future holds, this BC will last for a log time!

          Nice quality BC! I had a vest style BC before and was happy with it but wore it out. It's taken a little getting used to, but have been very happy with it. The style, fit, adjustability, and the freedom to move around is awesome. I had the Octo-Z alternate air installed at the same time and that has really come in handy. The guys at Leisure Pro helped me put the package together and I couldn't be happier...

            Comments about Zeagle Wicked Ranger BCD:

            I am a dive Pro and I use this BC everyday. I teach students everyweek in this BC and would recommend it to ANYONE. I love the "Wicked" design, but I will caution you that if you do confined water dives in a swimming pool the tribal will fade. I have dived all over the world in this set up. Over all, I will never own anything but a Zeagle Ranger again.

              Shopper  Hi. I have two questions. 1. Does the Bx inflator take the standard LP inflator hose coupling? 2. The specs are inconsistet with respect to the amount of dumpable weight. Early on, they say 30 lbs, but he size chart indicates 36...which of these is correct?
              Frank L  1. Yes. 2. 36 should be the correct response.
