Exellent performance

By Dan

Great balance capability with the weight integrated design

The Stabilizing Jacket remains the BCD style choice of experienced divers because of its dynamic control system. Stabilizing Jackets reject the idea of air bladders within BCDs; instead, they use internal air passages that basically embrace the diver and allow air to remain dynamic inside the jacket. This air flows freely to the jacket's highest point, which allows the diver to basically rotate around a bubble. This adds stability and creates ease of motion for the diver. As divers around the world will attest, this design's attributes have made the Stabilizing Jacket the most widely-used BCD of all time. The new Classic combines the best features past and present. This version incorporates a new look and radio frequency (RF) seam welding technology with Scubapro's unbeatable rugged performance the Classic is known for. Discerning divers will appreciate details like the easy-access chest pockets.

The Classic is equipped with the super cinch tank band Scubapro's stainless steel cam action buckle system for easy adjustment and secure grip. The Air cell is made from 420-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating that is puncture resistant. Quick-release integrated weight system offers more comfort and convenience. Pouches accommodate from 10 lbs. to 12 lbs. (4.54 kg to 5.44 kg) each (depending on size) and are secured in specially-designed pockets with oversized buckles. Two rear trim pockets counterbalance front weights and provide a well-balanced swimming position with 8 lbs. to 10 lbs. (3.6 kg to 4.54 kg) capacity. 6 stainless steel D-rings for long-life heavy wear & tear allow accessory attachments and 2 zippered and 2 hook and loop pockets provide plenty of storage space for gloves, light, dive tables and more. Knife mounting grommets makes an emergency or utility knife easily accessible in any situation.

The Classic has a padded back pack that is fast drying for ultimate comfort in and out of the water. Fully Adjustable Cummerbund immediately adapts to different morphologies and suit thicknesses on the spot a stainless steel latch buckle and nylon webbing belt along with an adjustable sternum strap with squeeze-style" side release buckle make donning and doffing quick and easy.

The Classic BCD comes standard with Scubapro's Balanced Power Inflator and has a 3-dump deflation system that enables divers to dump air from a variety of underwater positions. In the up-right position you can use either the left-or-right shoulder pull-dumps with the right shoulder pull cord or the left shoulder integrated cable activated power inflator shoulder dump. When inverted in the water the lower right rear pull dump can facilitate buoyancy trim. The Classic BCD provides 27 lbs. to 67 lbs. (12.25 kg to 30.4 kg) of lift depending on size and weighs 9.22 lbs. to 11 lbs. (4.18 kg to 5 kg). BCD comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick-disconnect hose and owner's manual.

Very pleased

By Jack G.

from Chatham, MA, US

Recently purchased for my wife & I......used for the first time on the Aggressor in Turks & Caicos....great BCD, high quality, wonderful fit, highly recommend.


Love this BCD.


from oakland, CA, US

It's not a travel BCD, is heavy, but I don't care. I love this BCD and I take it with me every time. Great companion.


Great BC


I have used the Scubapro Classic BCs for many years. This is the "new" Classic and it is great also. Superior construction. I like the jacket style.


Was expecting same in the photo, what came is d latest model

By dex

Using the same BCD for 12years still work thr same as I bought it... just got faded


I would buy this product again and again

By Tou

I've bought this type for 2 . it's really great desine for all divers.


makes me look good!


This is a great piece of equipment...couldn't believe the value at closeout price. fit, weight placement, and control are great with this BC- as I said, it makes me look good- not in a fashion sense, but as a solid, balanced, in control diver- which is pretty sweet for a 51 year old newbie!


Excellent BCD - Extremely Durable

By foxtrotter

I don't normally write reviews, but considering how much I depend on them myself I feel like I should when I've gotten such a fantastic product. This is one of the simplest, most durable BCD's I've ever used or seen in my years of diving. One word of caution: Choose your size wisely (SCUBARPRO BCD's tend to be a size larger: Someone normally a Large will fit comfortably into a Medium). If you've gotten a chance to try one on you know how comfortable they are, just keep in mind that the shoulder straps are actually part of the buoyancy pocket itself so there will be NO adjusting those. It's a hassle for "Rescue Diver" courses etc. when trying to remove but it's a wonderful piece of equipment at a good price.


Great BCD

Prompt delivery of product, and great customer service! Thank you Leisurepro!

ScubaPro Classic Plus BCD, Black/Silver

By Lars

I've been diving with Scubapro products since 1985, and the Stab Jacket is hard to beat. Yeah, there's new stuff out there and backmounts are hip, but the tired and provden Stab Jacket from Scubapro does it all. The cell structure makes for no "dead zones" and air moves as the diver moves. Check out and see what the pros use....




Complete control with this BCD. With no seperate bladders the air always keeps a twelve o'clock position. This allow the diver total freedom of movement at depth. Another review said "...Yoda of buoyancy..." I had to laugh but they were correct. All the buckles, d-rings and zippers are perfectly situated for all kinds of gear depending on one's own profile. The BC can hold enough weight, and has enough lift for a large person in cold water and still not feel cumbersome. Scuba Pro just came out with a newer model but the Pro Plus can't be beat for it's simplicity and quality. Don't even think twice! Pick this up while it's still available at this price! You won't regret it.


Great BC

By Swamprat

This is a rugged BC. Very high quality with lots of lift. It fits great and you can't beat this price.


Great BCD for the beginning diver!!!

By Capt.Chuck

This BCD is great due to its excellent stability on the surface and uniform inflation properties. The wrap-around bladder inflation keeps you heads-up when resting on the surface and well balanced while underwater. The gear-attachment points are well placed and the release knobs for air-dumping are located in easily reached places, both front and rear. Because of the numerous bladders getting ALL of the water out after cleaning does take some patience, but I have found that if you partially inflate the BCD and allow it to sit undisturbed for a few hours after cleaning all of the trapped water pools in the bottom and can then be dumped out completely with minimal further effort. As a beginning diver who only rented inferior gear up to now, I am very happy with this BCD.


ScubaPro produces excellent equipment


The BCD's safety feature are excellent. The craftmanship and quality are very good but most importantly, due to BCD's size, this is an excellent BCD for warmer water diving.


Tried some of the rest and went to best

By Gary J.

Had a stab jacket in the 80's. I tried the rear inflate, the Scubapro stab jacket is the best. Just pick one up and feel the material and weight of it. This BC is for the serious diver.


Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Master Diver Bill M  Simplicity, reliability, durability.
ELIAS A  This BCD by Scubapro is heavy and klutzy, I got rid of mine.
JOHN G  was on sale that I used as a gift
SCOTT D  I am 5' 9" 165 lbs with a 31" waist and a 42" chest. I dive in the cold waters of Northern California with a farmer John wet suit which puts a total of 12 mm of neoprene around my chest. Any idea on what size I should order in a scubapro classic bc?. Thanks, Scott
Willis R C  I think a “medium” would be a good fit. I am 5’ 10”, 188 lbs with a 44” chest and use a medium Scubapro stabilizer jacket for use with my 8/7 mm semi dry suit. The Classic is based on the stabilizer design which means you will always float heads up on the surface. Back mounts and winged BCD’s will float you face down if you were unconscious. I have owned scubapro BCD’s for more than 30-years.
JAMES N. N  These run large. I would recommend going into a local dive shop and trying one on I normally wear extra-large as I am 6 foot to 25 with a 38 inch waist however the extra-large was too big and I ended up exchanging it for a large I hope this helps
Christopher R  I would say if you can try one one first you may be better off. I bought an XL and it's super roomy. Especially in the keys where I don't wear anything but a tee shirt. If fact it kind of floats around on my a little but there are pretty good adjustments with the bc.
L L  What's the system weight of this BCD (small size)?
MICHAEL R  Not sure of system weight but have been extremely impressed with the weight distribution under water. A very comfortable & workable BCD
