About Zeagle Zena Women's BCD

The greatest difficulty in properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a smaller size, or allowing for the bust, but lies in the fact that women's bodies have a defined waist where a waistband must fasten in order to secure the BC. At the same time, women tend to have both a shorter torso length and a lower center of buoyancy compared to men. Conventional buoyancy systems, which would ideally be worn lower for best balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest part of the waist, in order to be secure. The Zena's twin waist and hip band system provides a way for women to securely position the weights and buoyancy below waist level, around the body's center of buoyancy. All of Zeagle's buoyancy systems are available with women's sizing options and can be adjusted to provide excellent fit and functionality for women divers.

The Zena BC has been designed by women as a buoyancy system specifically for women. The twin straps adjust to fit waist and hips independently, while the elastic front zippered panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagle's patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted, positioning the weights low, around the body's center of buoyancy. The torso adjustable shoulder straps and side straps come equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning/doffing. The Zena BCD has a 31lb (13.6kg) lift capacity bladder, and a 24lb (10.9kg) capacity Ripcord Weight System with a 16lb (7.26kg) rear trim pocket non-releasable capacity. Attachment of accessories is made easy with the four stainless steel D-rings on the vest and storage of gloves, small light or other accessories can be accomplished with the expandable mesh quick-pocket" at waist. Built to last from durable nylon with a urethane laminated interior for airtight integrity the Zena will give years of reliable service.

With this durable design you also get Zeagle's time proven, rugged Bx Power Inflator System. No more struggling trying to get fresh water in through the inflator mouth piece! The Bx Power Inflator comes standard on all Zeagle BC's. Now you can really rinse out the bladder of your BC. Simply unscrew the Bx Coupler, screw on a standard garden hose, turn the water on and super rinse and clean the inner bladder. Inflator includes a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose for attachment to the first stage regulator. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear overpressure relief/pull dump valves. BCD weighs 6.2lbs (2.8kg), comes with an owner's manual, is made in the USA and is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

      Comments about Zeagle Zena Women's BC:

      as an U/W photographer, perfect 'trim' on my buoyancy is essential. I am about to go muck-diving and you DON'T want to be the diver who stirs up the muck. I have never had such perfect control over my buoyancy as with this BCD - in over 30 years of diving, renting gear, having owned my own 'traditional vest' BCD's - never. Also, the integrated weights ROCK.

      Monica at Leisurepro is the best. ************************

        my wife just got this BC and fits very well, it seems to be sized a little large, she normally would wear a S, but went with an XS. LPro was great about the return. It could use a little better cargo pocket, but other than that, nice set up.

          Comments about Zeagle Zena Women's BC:

          Wife and I are doing a lot more dive travel (warm water). Researched every BC under the sun for women. Decided to get her the ZENA because of the fitment (not unisex), construction and other testimonials.

          The corset design is super cool. Much different than the traditional cumberbund. Haven't dived it yet, but with the waist adjustability I can't imagine anything more snug. She is really excited to try it.

          While it isn't the lightest travel BC out there, this one has steel D rings, dual tank straps, trim weight pockets and is made of more durable materials. Really like the "corded" bladder. We have friends with the ZUMA . . . the ZUMA is super light and suits them well but doesn't compare to the ZENA . . .with such an important component of your life support gear, sacrificing a couple of pounds seemed like a no brainer to me.

          The personal fit system is the awesome, BUT, be sure to get fitted BEFORE you buy on-line. Despite being an authorized dealer, Leisure Pro does not support sizing options unless you special order it. You cannot buy different "components" (meaning shoulder straps or any other component of the PFS) from Leisure Pro after the purchase. . .

          That said, a pleasant experience, product received timely and packaged well.

              I began scuba diving lessons with my husband. It's on his bucket list, but not mine. When we actually got into the water, I loved it, but I continued to struggle with my bouyancy. I was completely WORN OUT! After using this BC, I LOVE SCUBA! It fits and is adjustable in every way. Scuba is no longer a struggle. The right piece of equipment makes all the difference in the world! Now I can't wait to go on our next trip!!!

                  Once I learned to properly weight myself (3 lbs each back pocket in salt water with a small tank) this was a perfect BCD for me. It fit like a good hiking pack would fit and was very easy to adjust. The customer service at Zeagle was very helpful in advising me on the weight adjustments.

                  Questions about this item:

                  Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                  JENNY H  I've now had this Zena for a couple of years now and I LOVE this back inflate, front zipper BC! GREAT quality, ingenious designs, simplicity... absolutely perfect for me...a 5'5", advanced woman diver. Was looking/tried on the women's Tusa, Scuba Pro, and Sherwood BC's...Talked with a pro diver in the Philippines(Leisure Pro expert) and she told me what great products Zeagles are...I couldn't agree more! You won't regret buying a Zeagle.
                  j m  Has anyone had problems with the zipper? Seems like all zippers give out sooner than I'd like - with all of the salt corrosion possibilities, bending, weight, etc the zipper, although it seems substantial, would be a major point of failure. Does it get stuck? Would be hard to get out of the BC if the zipper stuck... Thanks
                  DANA F  I have not had any problems with my zippers. 100+ Dives in 4 years
                  Keith K  Does the Zena use or require the yellow weight pockets that are common with their other ripcord systems? If yes, does it come with the pockets?
                  KYLE C  They are not required so they are not provided but I would recommend them.
