Very user-friendly BC

By John C.

I wanted a BC that was simple and streamlined-this fit the bill perfectly. This is my travel BC, mainly for Carribean diving off the cruise ship, so I didn't need lots of pockets and rings. In fact, I chose this because there aren't a lot of unnecessary storage and attachment points. I have a shoulder retractor for a flashlight and another on the left hip for my computer, a clip for my safe second on the right, and a right side pocket for the signal tube or whatever. That's all I need to be h...

The Genesis Drift BCD is a lightweight and inexpensive jacket style BCD with weight integrated system. The Drift BCD has two 8 lbs. (3.63 kg) quick release weight pockets. The weight pockets are equipped with easy to ditch just pull release handles which allows weighs to fall away. These gravity style pockets are one of the easiest to operate in a diving emergency. The BCD harness assembly consists of torso adjustable shoulder straps with a removable and adjustable sternum strap and adjustable waist strap with cummerbund. All strap buckles are squeeze-style side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing.

Buoyancy control is made easy with the Genesis power inflator mechanism with cable activated pull dump at the left shoulder. The BCD is also equipped with a lower rear right pull dump/overpressure relief valve with manual pull for trimming of buoyancy when you are inverted in the water. The Drift BCD is built from strong and durable 420D nylon exterior with a urethane lamination interior air cell with radio frequency (RF) welded seams for airtight integrity. The Drift provides from 24 lbs. to 40 lbs. (10.9 kg to 18.14 kg) of lift depending on the size. BCD is Akona Pro Kit compatible (see optional kit SKU: GNSRKL), comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose, and owner's manual.

Leaking LPI, no gasket

I bought this mid Jan 2017. Did not get a chance to test it then for was busy with my trip to Asia and I trusted Leisurepro to give an entire, good quality product. I finally was able to test it on March 2017 before some fun dives. That was when I found that it was missing a gasket. When I tested it with the tank, it was massively leaking air on the upper left shoulder portion where the hose of the BCD is connected to the jacket itself. Time to be ingenious and got some gasket that fitted. It...

Very user-friendly BC

In fact, I chose this because there aren't a lot of unnecessary storage and attachment points. I have a shoulder retractor for a flashlight and another on the left hip for my computer, a clip for my safe second on the right, and a right side pocket for the signal tube or whatever. That's all I need to be hooked on my BC, so other rings and pockets are superfluous and irritating in my opinion. Great product for my needs. Highly recommended.

 

Great product

By Craig M.

from Pickens , SC, US

Bought this for my sister for her birthday. She is new to diving and I wanted a simplistic design she could easily get used to. And this fit the bill. Sizing was spot on, weight dumping system is used friendly...no pouches for her to worry about forgetting. Just an all around good beginner bc. I might pick one of for traveling.

 

GREAT VALUE

By davehcolso

from Columbus, OH, US

I bought this last year to replace my 25 year old BC which was beginning to leak everywhere, The weight pockets hold more than 10 lbs each if you use molded weights and my Air 2 works fine. I like the location of the dump valve and the "pull the inflator" dump works great as does the integrated weight system and the price is right. Note: A new inflator hose gasket can be made in 15 minutes if you're half way handy with your hands.

 

Great bcd

Fit perfect. Quick delivery. Weight pockets could be bigger. I require 22 pounds. Pockets hold only 6 pounds.

Love the bcd. Can't wait to wear it in the ocean. First time with integrated and wearing weight belt. Looking forward to the less around my waist.

Leaking LPI, no gasket

By Richard V.

from San Francisco , CA, US

I bought this mid Jan 2017. Did not get a chance to test it then for was busy with my trip to Asia and I trusted Leisurepro to give an entire, good quality product. I finally was able to test it on March 2017 before some fun dives. That was when I found that it was missing a gasket. When I tested it with the tank, it was massively leaking air on the upper left shoulder portion where the hose of the BCD is connected to the jacket itself. Time to be ingenious and got some gasket that fitted. It did the trick but it would leak here and there randomly from then on everytime I use it. No matter how tight I screw it on, no matter how much wiggling back and forth I do the hose, no help. Informed Leisurepro and they said they informed the manufacturer to send me a gasket. No help. I'm still using it for I don't have a choice. When I'm on the surface, I just simply waste air by keeping inflating often so I can float. Or I'd orally inflate. Underwater, if I need to control my buoyancy sometimes, I just need to reinflate often, wasting time, air, and energy but have to do it. I'm within the 24 month limited warranty but to ship it back to the manufacturer will cost me the same as getting a new one.

Scott S  How do i hook up mouthpiece?
Mario C  Thank you for your question. Scott no mouth piece attaches to BCD.. the oral inflator has a hard part that goes in your mouth ( no replaceable mouth piece there though), no sign of an octo holder... anything other than that please give us a call so we can understand it better.
