Love this BCD

By R M.

 -  Fort Lauderdale , FL, US

My wife and I each got one and we love them. Super comfortable, easy to get in and out of, tons of clips and pockets for gear, pockets easy to access (not too high and awkward to unzip without contorting yourself like some other BDCs we've used) and the i3 lever is so simple and works so well we can't imagine going back to the old over the shoulder hose. What a joy it is to dive with a product so well made and thought out.

 

Easy to use, intuitive

By hvguy

When I first saw this about 2 years ago I thought to myself... WHAT A GREAT IDEA! Its a basic BCD with the clip in weights in the front and weight pouches in the back near the tank. However there is no inflation controls floating around constantly in your face, everything is located on your left side just above your hip. Ive used mine for over 50 dives and everything is like the day I bought it. (velcro, clips, rings, weight pockets etc) You will need to measure the length inflation hose...

The Axiom i3 is a feature-rich, jacket style BC that incorporates Aqua Lung's patented i3 inflation / deflation system. Its amazing comfort and stability come from the integrated Wrapture Harness System. The Axiom is made from durable, fade-resistant materials and comes in a black/navy blue/gray colors combination. Integrated weights are held securely in place with SureLock II mechanical weight system and the cylinder is secured with the GripLock tank band. Wrapture Harness System (pat. pend.) Using patented swivel shoulder buckles and a proprietary, ultra-thin back plate, the Wrapture provides unsurpassed comfort and stability. Wrapture prevents the BC from riding-up" on the surface. Out of the water, the Wrapture keeps the cylinder close to your center of gravity and transfers the weight to your hips. The result is the ability to stand up straight with a cylinder that is perfectly vertical.

i3 Control System (patented) provides easy, one-touch control for inflation and deflation. Eliminates the traditional inflator that dangles at the end of a corrugated hose. i3 is simple and intuitive - just lift-up on the lever to inflate and push down on the same lever to dump air. What's more, when you push the lever down, all the dumps, upper and lower, open at the same time! Inflator comes with a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick-disconnect hose. The pull down oral inflator is easy to deploy, use and stow.

SureLock II Mechanical Weight Release System (patented) provides a safe, single-pull release. Inserting weight is as simple as insert and click". With SureLock, your weights are secure in the BC. Once engaged, the only way to release the weight is to pull on the handle. The Sure-Lock II Mechanical Weight Release System with 20 to 30 lbs. (9 to 13.5 kg) Capacity (sizes dependent). The Axiom also has fixed non-releasable weight pockets attached to the cylinder band with capacities of 10 lbs. (4.5kg).

The GripLock Tank Band is a strong, secure way to attach the cylinder to the BC. Gone are the days of complicated web weaving through multi-slot buckles. Predetermined detente settings make set-up simple. No adjustments are necessary when switching cylinders of the same diameter. Best of all, you don't have to worry about pinching your fingers with GripLock's innovative finger saver feature (pat. pend.)

A bladder retraction system is used to pull in the sides of the bladder during deflation. This keeps unit streamlined and reduces drag. An adjustable chest strap can be raised or lowered on a rail system. This not only ensures a good fit but also keeps strap from running across top of a dry suit valve. A scooped octo-pocket on the top, front of the right lobe makes it easy to stow and deploy an octopus. The octopus remains visible and accessible throughout the dive. Some divers may find it useful to run their instruments behind the left pocket and out the scooped opening on the top, front of the lobe. Pocket within a pocket A small security pocket is found on the flap of a larger drop-down pocket. Knife attachment points are found on the left lobe which will accommodate many of the Aqua Lung knives. This location provides easy access to the knife. BC features 5 stainless steel D-rings and 2 plastic D-rings for all your accessories. Right shoulder pull dump provides an additional dumping option. Rolled neck collar for comfort. Axiom i3 provides from 27 to 48 lbs. (12.25 to 21.78 kg) of Lift BCD comes with an owner's manual.

Too expensive for how long it lasts

I had mine for 4 years, maybe had 200 or so dives on it, paid $700, then the bladder tore and the inflator/deflator mechanism was also found to be inoperative. It was sent to AquaLung for repairs and they wouldn't fix it, There were many things I loved about this BCD, but the fact that it doesn't last outweighs all of them. I thought it was only mine, but after talking to others they have had the same problems.

Now for something different!

By Richard S.

from Stratford , CT, US

I bought this on sale without trying it on first through LP, so I knew I could return it. I wasn’t sure I would like the inflator, integrated weight and the size of the BC. It first appeared to be much bulkier than what I was used to. The integrated weight system definitely adds bulk. After using this BC for the first time shore diving in Bonaire, I really liked my choice. The tank attachment is awesome. Very easy and secure without Velcro. Easy to adjust tank height. Comfort was amazing on land to Carry tank around. The inflator/deflator was great! So simple and natural on the surface and making adjustments underwater. Push down to go down. Pull up to inflate. Underwater I had easy to control boyancy with freedom of movement. Weights kept balance and tank weight pockets when added weight was needed. It was easy to accessorize and carry other safety gear like lights, signal sausage, line spool compass , etc. multiple D-rings places in the right places. I’m 5’10” and 190 lbs I got the M/L size and it fit well. Maybe I could have used a M , but I felt good with this size. As I started with, it’s a little bulkier than my last BC mostly because of the weight integration, but the snap in tracks for the weight integration are easy and very secure. I used a weight belt for 12 years , so having the weight integration adds weight to the BC for donning and doffing and tank changes and lugging it around. It’s just different. Overall, I really like this BC. In water performance (where it really matters) it was great. Loved the inflator control out front.

 

Pretty Awesome

By Steve H.

Love the fit and the function. Great BCD!

 

Amazing deal on an amazing BCD!

By John S.

from Huntsville , AL, US

Was looking for an I3 from my local dive store, but since a new version of the product was coming soon in-store inventories were low. Purchased from Leisurepro just in time for a trip to the Bahamas and best BCD I've ever used! Side inflation/deflation valve is intuitive and easy to use for beginners and experienced divers. Highly recommend this product and purchasing from Leisurepro.

 

Still great after more than 400 dives

Ive used mine for over 50 dives and everything is like the day I bought it. (velcro, clips, rings, weight pockets etc) You will need to measure the length inflation hose and buy one separate that fits your size. I use a suunto dive watch with pressure transmitter with this. There are also stainless rings on the chest straps to hang gear like a big UK flashlight or a pad to write on. the right side has a zip pouch where I mounted my dive knife. If you lift the zipper pouch, a large fold out pouch comes out. VERY hand for storing things like a lift bag or whatever you find on your dive.

 

Love the inflate/deflate!

By jfksdca

Love not having to worry about the position of the release tube when wanting to deflate the vest. Easy to get in and out of.

 

Excellent BC

By andresladoa

Very comfortable and easy to operate.

 

Great BCD to manage buoyancy control!

By Grant W.

from Treasure Island, FL, US

Moving to the integrated power inflate switch was an easy move and one I don't regret. It's took only a few dives to get comfortable with it. Venting is fantastic and roll is all but eliminated.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Patrick H  price!
Larry G  recommended by dive instructor and much more convenient than dive resort BCDs
Michael S  I currently have one and love it. Need to send it in for servicing after five years of heavy use. Buying this one for a backup a backup!
Henry N  Heard good reviews from driends
Shopper  Does this bcd have a manufacturers warranty?
Mario C  Thank you for your question. Yes it does have limited lifetime warranty by the manufacturer.
INJAE L  Does not the knife include? There's no a knife. Did you miss it or not?
Mario C  Thank you for your question. There is no knife included with the BCD. I see that on the photo there is one mounted to display the grommets that can be used as a knife holder, and on the next picture there is a tank mounted to display the tank buckle system, and an octopus on the following picture, those are all added to display the functionality of the BCD. Sorry if it any way it was misleading.
