Perfect size and shape

By DONALD L.

Fits on both sides of tank strap. Easily held three pounds of lead. Helped me get horizontal under water and vertical on the serface. Velcro straps for connecting to tank strap, zipper top to secure lead. Should have been included as standard equipment with BCD.

 

Great, but not as pictured...

Great, but not as pictured. Has "Cressi" embroidered in white stitching across the front. 5 Stars for function, but I was really wanting plain black with no logos.

Do you find your cylinder rising off your back near the end of the dive? Does your cylinder valve and regulator first stage bump you in the back of your head? Do you feel unbalanced in the water when wearing a weight belt or with integrated BCD weight system? If these are common problems for you Cressi has a simple solution to your problem. Adding weight pocket (s) to your BCD cylinder cam band can eliminate all of these problems. By placing hard or soft lead in the weight pocket situated on your cylinder cam band will keep your cylinder from floating near the end of a dive or provide balance to your system for a more comfortable dive. It will also take some weight off the hips when you dive with a weight belt. Pockets are made from durable nylon material with a zippered closure for security of weight. These 5 lbs. (2.7 kg) capacity non-releasable weight pockets have a nylon webbing loop sewn to the back for easy threading to your cam strap webbing.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
David K  A great way to add stability for better buoyancy control.
Mikayla L  Do you dive with only these weight pouches? Or do you have weight distributed elsewhere as well?
Mike T  Hi Mikayla, yes you want to have weight distributed elsewhere. Especially in the form of ditch able weights. These pockets are not easy to access in case of an emergency.
Bruce S  Yes, I have the weight distributed in the form of the steel backplate and harness I use. I’ll typically need a couple pounds of trim when diving with Aluminum tanks. With steel tanks, I use no trim weights.
ANNE G  I mostly use the regular weight pouches. The tank weight pouch interferes with the strap reaching around the tank causing it to slip.
Robert P  The bulk of my weights are carried in the removable weight pockets of my bcd and I use these pouches for a small amount of undumpable trim weights. Hope this helps.
DMITRI R  I dive with a weight belt. I use this pouch to balance pony bottle attached to the other side of the tank.
Richard H  I have four of this pockets on my tank straps along with ankle weights since I’m using a drysuit and a backplate. I’d need more weight if I was diving in saltwater.
Wade M  Diving in a dry suit allows me to redistribute the weight to these pockets. I would not recommend having all your weight in an area where you would not be able to dump the weights in an emergency.
Bonnie S B  This is used as an extra weight pocket. My bcd has integrated weights.
Shopper  What are the dimensions of this pocket?
KEVIN F  Exterior is roughly 4" X 6" X 2". Will fit up to 5lb of block weight of lead shot bag weight.
Dimitri G  The weight pockets have an interior capacity of about 4.25 x 3.5 x 1.5". I dived with them a couple weeks ago with 3 lb solid weights for trim, and that more than fit in there ad worked great. But be sure to position them right next to your back and not the far side of the cylinder; if you turn sideways for have a look under a ledge or whatever, weights on the far side of the cylinder can swing you upside down. I speak from experience ;-) DG
