it's beautiful!!!!

By ScubaLew

I love it. Everything is great accept for the lack of pockets. I will buy a thigh pocket from Dive Rite. Then I'll have a place to put my SMB. Other wise the BC is perfect. I also have a coil lanyard that connects to it. So it's totally functional in every way. Taking it to Mexico soon. I would definitely recommend this product.

 

I love my jetpack!

By Felicia

I love my jetpack! I got it last year and took it on a week long trip to Bonaire. I used it as a backpack/carry on and was able to fit my dive computer, regulator, snorkel, laptop, and basically everything I would need for diving. My fins did not fit, and went in my carry on luggage. I packed it pretty full, and it did get quite heavy lugging it around the airport. It helped when I used the cumber bund for more support. I love that it is fully adjustable, and after a quick orientation dive, I...

The Aeris Jetpack is the ultimate solution for airline carry-on & transport to and from the dive site. It's a true hybrid, not a bag and more than just a mere BC. Aeris took a long look at what it means to travel with Scuba gear to a destination and realized quickly that it didn't make sense to take a BC, your heaviest and most bulky piece of kit with shoulder straps, and stuff it into a bag - so you could carry it... By combining a semi-dry day bag with a one size fits all fully adjustable travel BC, Aeris has managed to create a travel system that can carry a complete set of dive gear (regulator's, computer, fins, suit, etc.) and travel amenities (clothing, toiletry kit, computer, etc.) easily for multi-day travel, even a week depending on how you pack... all in only one bag.

The Aeris Jetpack is ruggedly constructed from high-quality durable materials but weighs in at only 6.25 lbs. (2.84 kg) when empty. The backpack/BC combo weighs in at a meager 8.25 lbs. (3.75 kg) when empty! Fully packed with travel friendly dive gear stays under 30 lbs. (13.64 kg) with ample space for the rest of the amenities you'll need for a week of diving and traveling. The spacious 2,563 cubic inches (42 liters) and light semi-dry bag has compartments to enable ease of packing and use during travel making it the perfect day bag for boat dives or shore excursions during your trip.

The Aeris Jetpack BCD provides 30 lbs. (13.64 kg) of lift, has a 14 lbs. (6.36 kg) releasable weight system and optional cylinder band trim weight with a capacity of 10 lbs. (4.55 kg) of non-releasable weight. One size fits all with custom fit for everyone: Adjustable harness, cummerbund and lumbar support. The adjustable position weight pockets allow proper balance in the water. The BCD is rugged (not your typical travel materials) constructed with 1000-Denier Cordura, 420-Denier nylon urethane laminated bladder material and quick dry 800-Denier double coated nylon.

Although lightweight the BCD has fully padded shoulder straps, a sternum strap and waist strap. The sternum, waist and shoulder straps are fully adjustable and are equipped with squeeze-style side-release buckles. The right shoulder strap has a series of daisy-chain loops for accessory attachment. The air cell has elastic bungee straps that keep the back-inflation bladder low in profile and aid in rapped deflation.

Buoyancy control and trim while diving is easy with the Aeris versatile power inflator equipped with an internal pull dump cable attached to an overpressure/dump valve. An additional overpressure/dump valve, located on the lower right with pull dump cord allows easy trimming of buoyancy regardless of your diving position. The BCD comes with a 3/8" threaded low-pressure quick-disconnect hose and owner's manual.

The Jetpack Backpack Bag has water resistant zippers for all compartments, hide away backpack straps, laptop sleeve with easy zippered access; full zipper opening main compartment provides easy access and two external zippered pockets for smart phone, wallet, and passport. Backpack bag is made with quick-dry 800-Denier double coated nylon. Backpack has external compression straps for cinching or expanding and padded back panel for comfort on the long haul. The backpacks adjustable shoulder straps are padded and come equipped with squeeze-style side-release buckles. The Aeris Jetpack represents a true solution for the adventure traveler.

This product is dangerous.

I have owned a Aeris Jetpack and it has two serious flaws. 1) it absorbs and then retains 8-10 lbs of water making it very difficult to get out of the water. 2). The tank can pinch off the air bladder capturing air on the right side of the bladder that will prevent you from stopping for a safety stop. The only way to get the air out when this occurs is to completely invert while hunting for the pull cord on the right side. The pull cord is impossible to locate while inverted. I worked dire...

Just used it for the first time. I really like this for travel will be taking it on the first trip this week.

 

Great BCD, extremely comfortable

By Scott R.

TLDR: Great BCD period. If you're someone looking to travel light or frequently it's truly amazing. Construction: Really heavy grade materials, has been extremely durable, after 80 dives in the past few months still looks essentially new. It's been all around the world and has barely a scratch. The buckles have held up great and the bladder is made of extremely high grade fabric. I was worried about the lack of D-rings, but after a couple dives I enjoy the daisy chain in their place. Putting it together: Takes a bit of time the first time you set it up (cumberbun straps are stiff when brand new). With the ability to customize so much I spent 20 or 30 minutes tweaking strap lengths until it fit just right. I have an athletic build at 6'3" with an exceptionally long torso and small hips, this customization was a godsend to have a BCD that actually fit my length, shoulders, and small waist. Also fits my 5'3" partner with ease. On the dive boat with practice assembling it only takes a couple minutes. I don't disassemble until the end of the trip, I simply clip the semi-dry bag on and walk off the boat. The semi-dry bag has worked great and kept all of my various clothes dry, but I have never submerged it. Diving: Not a jacket BCD, dives more like a BPW set up just with a soft backplate. That backplate is exceedingly comfortable with the right amount of padding. Of note is the padding takes a couple hours to dive after the boat, not a big deal to me as you're supposed to wait before you fly. The inflator took a little time to get used to but is fine. When diving I feel very secure, and the bladder provides me with plenty of lift. The weight pockets are easy to dump, but will not get knocked out on a mooring line. There are two on the hips and two on the tank strap. Travel: The semi-dry bag has some volume! I travel tropical out of only this for trips less than two weeks. You can sinch it down with included compression straps on the side (works when attached to the BCD and as standalone) to reduce size, very helpful when fitting into an overhead locker or headed out for a day trip. Overall love the BCD, already got a second one ordered for my partner and would buy it again in a heart beat. Great value at this price level.

 

Amazing ... everything is adjustable for a great fit.

Great BCD!

By RodeoNemo

This is the best & most comfortable BCD I've used. It's better than my previous X-Tek and many other great BCDs I've used. The donut bladder makes its balanced when inflated. The adjustable weight pocket set at the back prevent forward positioning when fully inflated. Control is a breeze. I did several penetration through small holes without much fuss and its very comfortable. It is fully adjustable. Love the day pack dry pack. Once finished diving, Dump all the gears in and zip up for easy carry off the boat. Will get a 2nd set. Do take note the back cushion takes a bit of time to dry off.

 

So easy to travel with

By Craig

I'm in Thailand right now and the Jetpack has worked out great, It was nice to carry on the 28 hour trip from upstate NY. My first dive day with it went great. Can't wait to dive again tomorrow.

I used it as a backpack/carry on and was able to fit my dive computer, regulator, snorkel, laptop, and basically everything I would need for diving. My fins did not fit, and went in my carry on luggage. I packed it pretty full, and it did get quite heavy lugging it around the airport. It helped when I used the cumber bund for more support. I love that it is fully adjustable, and after a quick orientation dive, I figured out exactly what worked for me. I positioned the integrated weight system more towards the back since the Aeris JetPack is back inflated. It really helped me to watch an online video for breaking it apart and reconstructing the BC portion once in Bonaire. It held up magnificently in 20 boat and shore dives, and will be going with me this year in July back to Bonaire. It's a great piece of equipment.

 

areis jetpack

By Jeff

Works great little tricky to get adjusted dives great went on a seven day trip with a full 5mil wetsuit every thing fit

 

Great gear BUT buyer be warned!

By TA

DOES NOT COME WITH THE INTEGRATED Air2(integrated octopus) I contacted their customer service and they have resolved issue.

 

Cool Piece of equiptment

By Parrotfish

First Impression: It is a little hard to get adjusted just right at first and learn how to best pack/unpack everything, but after a few dives it became very simple. It did take me a few extra minutes to pack and unpack my gear than my family members, but 3 or 4 minutes extra to have a super compact and highly portable set is worth it to me. Also, it is very comfortable to wear even fully loaded. Looks and feels very durable. Fit: I was worried that it wouldn't fit because one size fits all never fits me (I'm 5'4'' and 100 lbs) but everything adjusted down great. My stepdad is a pretty big dude rocking the beer belly and it fit him too. The velcro waistband is the only part that doesn't get quite small enough but it tightens up fine with the buckle and straps. Space: I was actually surprised at how much I could fit in there. I broke it in on a 5 day trip and fit all my scuba gear and clothes/toiletries in there. I do wish there was a specific pouch (besides the small front pouches) you could put dry clothes in so that it will stay dry when your wet scuba gear goes back in after the dive, but a ziplock bag works too. My fins do not fit but I played around with the suggestions to strap them to the outside or unzip a slot specifically for tall fins and let them stick out a bit. Both worked well and wasn't too inconvenient that I might wait to purchase smaller fins until I actually fly with my gear. Style: Be prepared to get some jealous looks and nice comments because it's a unique piece of gear everyone will notice!

 

Not for short people!

By Suzscuba

Very well done, I love the concept, easy to carry but I found that it cannot be adjusted for my size (5 feet).

 

A great concept but...

By R W.

from Baltimore, MD, US

I returned this BCD immediately. Would only recommend to a diver who is regularly traveling and is not interested in doing much underwater photography/videography. After a 1 hour dive in a 13 foot tank, this is what I found. Key complaints: 1. Underwater balance - The biggest issue I found was air balance underwater with this setup. I found that when I achieved buoyancy and was in a horizontal position, everything was fine. If, however, I changed from horizontal to 10 degrees in either direction, the air would move in the bladder push me the rest of the way until I was vertical with either my head or my feet up. The tank was trimmed and the only thing I can think that could have caused this "erroneously" was that in my dive conditions, I was using a 5 mil wetsuit and was less than 15 ft from the surface. I did not exceed the weight restrictions of the pockets but this might be more weights than normally used at this depth and allowed air to move in the bladder. Regardless, no other BCD I have used has given me this issue and I would rather have a device that can function well in most (reasonable) environments. 2. The tank has to be lined up REALLY well. I had to adjust it after getting into the water. There was a small window of "not hitting you in the head" to "inflator hose and straps are definitely not where they should be." 3. Speaking of, the inflator hose was terrible IMO. due to the design of the BCD to be compact and rolled into a cover bag, the inflator hose was just not where it should be. To keep this, I would have needed to replace it. 4. Setup! I did watch the videos about setting up and breaking down this device but there are a couple of bits either left out or just glossed over. The plastic you have to loop the waist straps to is hidden behind some of the backplate cushion. That meant you have to squeeze it out from there and try to fish the strap through the slot and back out for each side. A real pain. If I were to keep it, I would have stiched a small string to the end to help fish the strap through or just leave them on it all the time (which would have been awkward walking around much like that.) 5. Travel convenience - Some of the promotional pieces for this discussed how you could just throw your wet gear in the dry bag and strap your BCD to the bag and you're good to go off the boat and on to other adventures! Wellll, yeah but, your BCD is the part you use as the bag shoulder straps when connected. Which means you are using the soaking wet straps and back cushion as your bag straps. So when you change into your dry clothes, your bag likely won't be dry enough yet for you to put it on. Kinda reducing it's convenience as the only bag you need for your travels. 6. Minor issues I was prepared to deal with were the lack of D rings and pockets. I knew it did not have any and if it were going to be super slick and streamlined, I would find alternatives. Other notes. If you're still reading this review, I will note that I read other reviews and did not experience the same issues they had. One of them being that it absorbs "8-10 lbs of water". Although it did absorb water in the backplate cushion area, it wasn't pounds of water that made getting out of the water or carrying it around difficult. It was enough that I strapped it on my back after 2 hours and I still had water soaked into my dry clothes from carrying it. Also, I did not have a problem finding the rear lower dump valve. On the contrary, I found it to be one of the easiest to find valves on a BCD that I have used. I also did not have an issue with the tank possibly pinching off the air bladder. The tank was essentially hitting me in the back of the head when I first attached it and it was not near pinching off the air bladder so I have no clue how that could have happened for the other user to have had it so high that that was a possible outcome.

I worked directly with Nick Hollis on getting a safe Travel BCD after notifying them (during warranty) ... they screwed me. Buyer beware. They don't take ownership for their design flaws.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CARL D  This is for a travelling dive kit so this is the perfect choice. Will update review after I use it...
Brian L  What is this jet pack usually used for?
Joseph C  For travelling also has full adjustments from XS to XL that means others friend and family members can use it too.in my BCD it is not easy to adjust trimming in the water.
RON C  For traveling scuba divers, that allows them to break down the Bc for plane travel
PEGGY A  The aeris jet pack is a scuba BCD and this model is extremely dangerous ... It has two fatal problems. 1) it absorbs water and does not drain when exiting the water. Therefore you have to carry additional 16-20 lbs of water weight 2). the scuba tank pinches off the bladder preventing ability to dump air during assent. Uncontrolled assent is extremely dangerous. This units should be recalled.
Victor L  It is an awesome travel BC and water resistant backpack all in one.
Jason R  It’s a scuba diving BCD. Perfect for travelling.
Hin L  Hi Brian I am not sure what you are asking but it is supposed to be all-in-one BCD, and backpack to put in some dive equipment, and clothes. It does seem like a good idea but some airlines are weighing carry-on bags so this will probably exceed the 7KG/15Pounds limit when you add your regulator and other stuff. I got the first generation BC, and it only had one strap for the tank and it was terribly unstable because there is not backplate; my tank would wobble and I always felt that the tank had come off. I think the second generation is better but I will not be getting it. The weight constraint for carry-on will become more of a problem as airlines find new ways to make money.
Timothydean T  Regular scuba diving and travel diving.
Craig C  When I travel and I want to do only a few dives where I’m going. I take my jetpack. It’s light so I carry it on the plain with my regular.
Koh Chee Heong A  It's a compact BCD system with a detachable dry back pack for travel use. Hence, the "Jet". Mean its meant for divers who travels around exploring new dive site.
Brian L  What do I need to provide thrust?
Charles J  They call it a jet pack because one can use it as a carry on on a jet plane. It's not a rocket vest
