Can’t wait dive with it again !

By Jofoto

I’d been thinking of replacing my Mares Vector Chrome BDC with this Aqua Lung Pearl BCD (2013 Style) for over a year now and finally ordered it this for my B-day gift to myself. I liked my Mares that I’ve had for over 10 yrs because it fitted me well with the 3 straps adjustments in front . But it didn’t have integrated weights which meant I needed a weight belt and all the discomfort that come with it. Having lost a bit of weight I wanted a new one and the dive shop were I go (Who are als...

Great fit

By Scubastacey

I really like the fit and could easily transfer my air 2 from my old BCD to this one.

The Pearl is a wrap-around jacket style BC specifically designed for the female diver. It offers an adjustable waistband and specially curved shoulder straps that provide a customizable and comfortable fit. Aqua Lung's Pearl Series goes Pink: Aqua Lung gives back to women by supporting an important cause that has affected their employees and their families, and women all around the country. Aqua Lung is pleased that Aqua Lung will be making a cash donation to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research based upon the sales of the Pearl.

A unique, hybrid air cell combines a back-inflation wing with a wrap-around jacket. The benefit is increased lift in a small package as well as stability throughout the dive. Sleeker, low profile lobes with scalloped lower edges to rise above the hips. The patented, integrated sports bra provides added comfort, security and stability. The flat valves reduce drag and keep the BC streamlined. The SureLock II weight pockets align themselves. Just insert the pocket until it clicks". A simple, single pull release is all that is needed to jettison the weights in an emergency. The SureLock II weight pockets can accommodate 20 lbs. (9 kg) capacity in all sizes. The Pearl also has non-releasable weight capacities in sizes SM to LG from 6 to 10 lbs. (2.7 to 4.5 kg).

Two large, lobe pockets have zippers to keep your accessories secure. Four D-rings are available to attach accessories. Attachment grommets are available for any one of the fine selection of Aqua Lung BC knives. Octo-pockets (patent pending) are on either side to securely stow your octopus. Adjustable waist band accommodates a wide variety of sizes.

The Pearl comes equipped with Aqua Lungs Power Line Inflator with an increased fill rate which is now, one of the highest air flows in the industry. The Power Line is an environmentally sealed unit for less maintenance, has integrated hose clips for attachment to the LP hose for a streamline and low profile. The inflator is equipped with a cable activated rapid exhaust at the top, simply pull down on lower unit to dump air. The Pearl provides from 23 to 44 lbs. (10.4 to 20 kg) of Lift, comes with a low pressure 3/8" threaded hose, and an owner's manual.

DIVE PINK & FIGHT BREST CANCER! For every Pink BCD $40 will be donated to fight breast cancer.

Aqua Lung Pearl BCD

By RICHARD W.

Excellent product. The XS is a perfect fit for me. Only wish it was as colorful as my last Aqua Lung BCD.

 

Perfect for the girls!

Arrived on time and in great condition.

Having lost a bit of weight I wanted a new one and the dive shop were I go (Who are also my instructors) suggested this BCD because of the fit. My instructor uses it even over her dry suit and says she wouldn’t want another BCD as a woman diver. Just came back from my first dive trip with it and I am delighted by the comfort and ease of using it! Can’t wait for my next trip to dive with it again!

Missing some features...

By Ketty

I'm a new cold water diver with 25 dives. I bought this BC because I tried it in warm water on vacation and really liked it. I'm 5'5", 158 pounds, 32" waist and the small measurements fit me really well except my body weight was over the range of the sizing chart. For warm water diving this BC works fine (even despite my weight), but I just went diving in the PNW today and I found the lift to be insufficient! I felt like I was struggling to not drink water while surface swimming with the BC fully inflated. I'm going to return the small and size up to a medium with 4 pounds more lift so my face isn't so close to the water. The 28 pounds of lift was barely enough given I have 22 pounds in the BC itself and another 16 on my weight belt. Another thing is the inflator hose could be a bit longer or not so buoyant. It floats up to my neck while diving and sticks out at an awkward angle, making it cumbersome to find without looking down. I've accidentally grabbed the chest strap way too many times trying to dump air. I guess this is just something to get used to. 2 other things, the safety strap that goes over the tank valve is not adjustable so you're limited in how high up you want the BC to sit on the tank. The BC also doesn't have a handle to help you lift it over the tank easily. Other than those issues, this BC does really well with streamlining. I really love the octor pockets and was able to tuck all my instruments into them so I didn't have hoses tangled all over the place! If you're not a cold water diver, I would recommend.

 

Great BCD, but try it on first

By Jen

This is a nice BCD, pretty perfectly fitted for a woman. Using men's/unisex BCD's in the past, I always had an issue with them riding up. However I want to stress that you should really try this on at your LDS before purchasing online. I am normally an XL in most things (5'10 200lbs) - I tried on a M and found even with everything cinched all the way up it was still loose, so I got a small, and it has performed well. Plenty of room even with my 7mm wetsuit or a drysuit. It has a bunch of D rings for whatever you might want to clip to them, and roomy pockets.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Shannon D  Reviews and comfort
SCOTT R  Extremely well designed for females. Aqua Lung very high quality products that are far better than other brands
Elias M  My GF is 5'7", 125 lbs, 28 waist, 32 chest. She has a petite frame. Would you recommend XS or S?
Tina E  I would go with a small to allow room for the wetsuit
Elizabeth F  I am 5'3", 125LBs, with a 32 chest and I purchased an XS back in May. It fits really well! It seemed snug at first because I was so use to wearing rental gear that is small unisex (and too big). I would say with a small frame like ours, XS is a good pick. Hope this helps.
SILVANA G  The sides of the BCD slide to the back even with the buckle closed in the front. What is the purpose of this? Seems like a mis-design!
Hal B  Adjustment for comfort
SILVANA G  I am talking about new model (2017), not sure you do too. There is nothing to adjust, they slide on the inner belt without any control. The most discomfort I felt when swimming on the back on a shore dive, they slide to the back because of the weights. I felt it put pressure on the chest. Thanks!
