Surprised me with the comfort and ease of use

By zvi l.

I travel often to film underwater and was looking for a light BCD that will be comfortable for my aching back. Really great BCD, Room for weights and everything that I was hoping for.

 

This is a GREAT BCD, if your looking for a back inflate and a great price,you can’t go wrong.

By Grant M.

 -  Banner Elk, NC, US

Used this BCD on 8 dives in Cabo San Lucas the week after it arrived. It worked flawlessly, absolutely did everything I expected it would. Very comfortable, great storage,solid construction and perfect balance. The weight pockets latched securely and never caused any concern. I really like the back inflate design, very stable underwater easy to use on the surface.Once again LeisurePro did a great job in answering my questions and shipping my order on time.

The Cressi Ace BCD is an impressively light weight, high lift capacity, rear inflation BC that is anatomically designed for maximum comfort and durability. The Ace features a high lift capacity rear inflation design this means extra freedom of movement and buoyancy for the diver. The special air cell compression strap guarantees extra quick deflation and volume control. The ultralight rigid back plate with its integrated carrying handle ensures optimal stability. The Ace also features Cressi's Flat-Lock-Aid integrated weight system that makes it easy to release the pockets. There are also two rear trim pockets (attached to the tank-strap band). Accessories include four 50mm (2") shoulder aluminum D-rings and four 25mm (1") aluminum D-rings (of which two on the pockets and two on the lower part of the harness). There are 3 over pressure relief valves/dump valves: one on the upper part of the inflator hose, one valve on the right-hand side of the shoulder and a third on the lower right-hand side of the air cell. The inflator dump/valve is cable activated by pulling on the power inflator mechanism and the shoulder and lower valves have a pull cord.

Features include Flat-Lock-Aid Integrated Weight Pockets with 20 lbs. (9 kg) weight releasable capacity and rear ballast pouches with 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) capacity. Weight system works with hard block or soft weight pouches. Rear inflation design with a durable 420-Denier nylon air cell with bungee cords to provide a low profile and rapid deflation of air cell. The BCD harness system uses traditional squeeze-style" side-release buckles and adjustable straps on the shoulders, chest and waist for precise adjustment and fit. BCD has multipurpose zippered pockets for additional storage of accessories. BCD comes equipped with Cressi's streamline Commando Power Inflator with 3/8" threaded quick-disconnect hose. The inflator mechanism is environmentally sealed for greater reliability and less maintenance. The Cressi Ace BCD provides a lift capacity from 29.2 lbs. to 50.6 lbs. (13.3 kg to 22.9 kg), weighs from 6.7 lbs. to 7.5 lbs. (3 kg to 3.4 kg) depending on size and comes with an owner's manual.

Very good BC

By Ming H.

from San Jose, CA, US

Very comfortable and easy to control. This BC has enough buoyancy for cold water diving. The build quality is pretty solid. I am very satisfied with overall experience. The rear weight packet is really useful. The zip pocket is large enough to put my accessaries. However, it's a little heavy for travel. And the size is larger than I expected.

 

Check your weights

By Michael M.

from Hudson, NH, US

The overall fit and quality is very nice and comfortable and the pockets are very functional. Make sure the weights you use fit properly. A 10 lb waist curved weights will not fit into the sleeve and a set of old style 2- 5lb weights I had overlapped and did stress the zipper. I used an 8lb and a 2lb and it fit perfectly into the pocket and the sleeve. A 10lb non coated straight weight should work but I only had old 10lb plastic coated ones that did not fit

 

My 4th BC, 1st Back Inflate Style

By JAMES E.

from Saipan, Saipan, MP

I have always owned/used jacket style BC's. I wanted to try a back inflate style and went with this Cressi design. I think the sizing on back inflate BCs runs small as compared to jacket style BCs. I wear a Large jacket BC, and they are always a bit big. I decided to go with a Medium on this design, and of course it is a little small. I wish the pockets were bigger. The metal D rings are very scratched up already. But other than those points, I do like this BC very much. It is very comfortable.

 

CRESSI Ace

By John W.

from Abingdon, VA, US

Very well made, good fit and performed very well. There is no cummerbund which I think would make it perfect. Not having one would not stop me from buying again.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Stephen W  brand and sale
Wayne L  Seems like a sleek design. Less bulky than a traditional jacket style and lighter. Great reviews by users.
Robert L  Does this have a rigid backplate?
Grant M  Yes, with padding and a carrying handle. Very comfortable and great tank support, hardly feel it.
Robert L  Thanks for all the quick responses. This may be my next BCD for travel. Heading to Bonaire in 2 weeks!
JAMES E  Yes, it does.
PAUL C  Hey Robert, Yes, it has a plastic molded back plate.
Norie S  About how long does it take to dry (at what temperature / humidity )? Will it be dry to pack next day of diving (assuming the last dive is done by evening) on travel?
Grant M  This BC is quick to drain/dry, hang it up out of sunlight and it will dry in a few hours. Be sure to empty the gear pockets to allow that stuff to dry. The padded back plate has a mesh cover that promotes air circulation and fast drying. Really love everything about this BC, think you will too.
PAUL C  The Cressi Ace dries fairly fast. As a volunteer rescue diver I need my equipment to dry and be repacked as soon as possible. In most cases this BCD will dry over night depending on temperature and the humidity. Any air flow such as a fan helps this process as well. Be sure the weight pockets are removed and side pockets are unzipped and opened. Those are the two areas that take the longest to dry. Be safe and enjoy your diving!
DAMIEN G  In 80 degree socal weather, the exterior of the BC will be dry by the next day. The inside takes longer even with inflator hose and dump valves removed. The inside takes a couple days after ive rinsed it out to clean the salt out
