Very Good BCD

By Jeffrey C.

 -  Fortson, GA, US

Last weekend I dove with the Aquaride Blue. It is extremely comfortable and that's an understatement. Far more comfortable than the back inflate style that I've been using. Of course they are totally different BCDs and I get that but the comfort level of the Cressi can't be overstated. I also love the control that this BC gives me. On the surface it's wonderful. I can be vertical, laid back, leaning forward and it never tries to push me in one direction or the other. I love it. ...

Very Happy!

By MICHAEL O.

 -  New Albany, IN, US

I bought this BCD because of all the good reviews and I was not disappointed. This BCD has lots of D-rings, large pockets, floats well at the surface, and it's very comfortable. I'm very happy with this BCD, and I recommend it to anyone who likes this style.

The Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD is a dual-purpose BCD that is great for travel and so incredibly versatile, it can be used for a wide assortment of diving. It's light and can be compacted enough to be packed for your warm water trip to the tropics. But it also houses enough lift, weight capacity and room for maneuverability to be used with a dry suit in cold-water conditions. It's an all-around BC for any occasion.

The Aquaride Blue Pro is constructed with durable 420-denier nylon and can stand up to the daily use of a professional diver. But any level of diver can use this BCD; it's trimmed down style makes for easy usage and comfort. The Blue Pro features a hard-pack frame with plenty of padding for comfort and offers adjustable shoulder straps that are unaffected by the air bladder for a better fit. This also makes the BCD incredibly easy to don. For even more comfort, the cummerbund and chest strap are elastic so even when your air bladder is full, you're still feeling comfortable. The Aquaride Blue Pro also incorporates three dump valves for any position you may encounter; two shoulder valves and rear waist valve. Plus, the new integrated lock aid system is a super smooth; secure integrated weight system with a quick and easy release mechanism. The releasable pockets accommodate 20 lbs. (9 kg) of weight

Although travel and dual purpose are usually trimmed down on the accessory side the Aquaride Blue Pro does not heed this information. It incorporates non-releasable weight trim pockets on the tank strap with a capacity of 8 lbs. (3.6 kg) of lead for better buoyancy control. Six stainless-steel D-rings are readily available for all your gadgets. The Blue Pro also provides two generously large zippered pockets to house all your additional accessories. The Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro BCD is a fantastic all-around BCD that can be used by divers of all levels and can be your one and only BCD for any type of diving you choose to do. Adjustable sternum straps along with both torso adjustment and waist straps are equipped with squeeze-style side release buckles for easy donning and doffing. This jacket style BCD provides 18 lbs. to 42.7 lbs. (8.2 kg to 19.4 kg) of lift depending on size. Buoyancy control is facilitated with Cressi's power inflator equipped with a standard with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose. The BCD weighs from 7 lbs. to 8.3 lbs. (3.2 kg to 3.8 kg) depending on size and comes with an owner's manual.

Comfortable and versatile

By WARREN W.

from Keithville, LA, US

Tried it at a local freshwater scuba facility yesterday. Had no problems. The weight sleeves snap in securely. Four lbs in each and a couple of smaller weights in the back pockets worked great to keep me upright on surface and submerge easily. Easy to adjust for fit.

 

A winner!

By Karen D.

I love it! I took it to Belize for a fabulous week of scuba diving, and it performed flawlessly. Absolutely no complaints.

 

Great BC at a great price

By mark s.

Have done about 10 dives with it and am happy. I have been using as a travel BC. Although a bit heavier then a travel BC, I like the rigid backplate. Love the integrated weights. Very comfortable. I'm 5'9" 205 lbs and bought a large. Fit is spot on. Lots of metal D-rings. The only downside is the side pockets are a little awkward to get to as they are situated a bit far back. Overall I would buy again.

 

As described.

By SEAN N.

Really comfortable. Fit is perfect. Used for 6 dives so far.

 

Love the Cressi

By Christina B.

from Jacksonville , FL, US

Comfortable and fit great. Great weight distribution. Researched a lot of BCD and this one loved up to my expectations. Would highly recommend.

 

Cressi Aquaride Blue Pro

By ANDREW C.

from Oxford, MD, US

Purchased this to replace an older Aeropro model which is no longer supported by Cressi. Fit was good, no slippage when submerged. Pockets are large and easily accessed, numerous D rings well placed. Weight pockets quite similar to the Aeropro's but not as bulky (took up less room in the dive bag)with the locking system easy to use. Tank strap easy to adjust and held the tank firmly. Lift was adequate. Overall, the BCD is lighter than the previous one, simply due to the material utilized, took some time in getting used to the flexibility.I would recommend this item for any diver looking for a general use BCD and would purchase it again

 

Great choice for first BC

By David O.

from Santa Fe, NM, US

I purchased this BCD as my very first, and I couldn't be happier. It's comfortable and well designed. I took it on a refresher course and discovered I had no issues at all keeping almost perfectly neutrally buoyant. Well thought out and a great deal!

 

Great BC

By Daniel R.

from boca raton, FL, US

Served me well...Comfortable. Nice features at good price.

 

Aquaride Blue Pro BCD performs well

By Steve S.

from Arnprior, ON, CA

Good BCD. No issues to report. Everything worked as advertised.

 

Great BCD

By Phil M.

from NYC, NY, US

Great full featured jacket-style BC at a great price. Lots of metal D rings. Large pockets to store a light or safety sausage. Trim pockets. After trying on several others, this was the one that fit my tall and skinny frame.

 

Total function and comfort!

By garymculver

from Saint Michaels, MD, US

I bought this vest and went straight to the Keys to check it out. This is my first weight-integrated BCD and I'm loving the trim pockets! The pockets are ample and secure, the octopus clip is perfectly located, there are many places to clip on gear and the fit is generous! This is a great piece of gear for a great price!

 

Great BC

By queveq

This BCD is very comfortable and adjustable. Great Fit, Awesome quality. Love it.

 

Great BCD

By Sandy L.

from Hendersonville, NC, US

I love this BCD. Great fit, well made, very comfortable and I love the integrated weights. I almost bought the lighter weight version but after chatting with Leisure Pro "on line" person who was incredible helpful, I went with the more substantial vest. Frank, in customer service was also extremely helpful. This company and their support personnel are great to work with. Thanks Leisure Pro. This is definitely my "go to" place for Scuba gear.

Extremely easy to get and stay neutral. Weight release system is very nice also. Easy to secure the pockets with a sharp click providing conformation. Cressi did a good job with this one. Great travel BCD. It's a keeper. Good looking also. Some good compliments on it from other divers. Plenty of D-rings. Frank from Leisure Pro is totally outstanding. He's been so helpful and easy to work with. Frank knows his stuff. Leisure Pro is simply great. Can't say enough good things about this store. Great prices on everything. I purchased regs, an octo, gauges and this BCD and Frank really took care of me. Great stuff.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Robert V  Features and price
kelly v  Although I'm certified, I'm still a novice diver. I'm not ready for a back inflate only and this BCD offers comfort and stability.
MANUEL L  Replacing my old BCD. I like a jacket style BCD. I like to weight pockets, D-rings, and ease of use. It's a classic design that just keeps working.
Shopper  How heavy is this BCD ?
Romeo E  I would say is in the medium range of weight... this is based purely on my subjective perception. However, I feel it very comfortable to wear.
Sharon M  9 1/2 lbs
Kirk W  Hi. I'm 6'2", 180 lbs, 42" chest, 34" waist. Would a M or L be the best fit with a 3mm suit? Thanks.
David C  I don't think a medium will give you much wiggle room in the shoulder area but the waist will cinch nicely. If you have a long upper torso the larger may be better suited. I'm an inch shorter and 50lbs heavier. I found the medium too small.
Ame G  I’m 6’ 190 and the large fits really well.
Sharon M  Misunderstood first time thought you were asking about size of 3mm suit...my husband is same size as you and medium fits well - he replaced his bcd because it was a large and it was too large!
Kirk W  Thanks so much for your reply.
Sharon M  Large tall
J A  I would go with the Large. M would probably be a bit tight and/or short. Good luck. My wife and I both have Cressi BCs and really like them.
