FREEDOM!

By Caroline W.

 -  Deer Park, TX, US

It took me a minute to get used to how lightweight and minimalist this BC was. Once I adapted, I felt really free. Great BCD for a great price. Also, I chose this to cut down on our baggage weight for travel, as my other BC (which I also love) is quite a bit bulkier and heavier.

 

Best travel wing

By Keith H.

 -  Covington, LA, US

I discovered BCD wings in the Philippines and decided to try the zeagle wicked BCD, heavy duty but light for travel, that was eight years ago, I tried another brand but decided I really liked the Zeagle, so I decided on the Zeagle covert, just an upgraded Zeagle Wicked, looks almost identical. The only reason I still don't use the Zeagle Wicked is because its a medium and I should have gotten a small, after 8 years it still like new. Us I definitely recommend

The Zeagle Covert is an ultra-light, low profile, weight integrated back inflation BC that has everything you demand in a travel BC without the weight and bulk. Traveling light doesn't mean you should compromise. The Covert BC is for those divers counting weight by the ounce and looking for uncompromising quality. Part of the popular and well known Ranger BC Lineage, the Covert is for those looking for legendary "Ranger" toughness and durability in a compact travel BC.

Divers who travel want to bring as much of their own gear as possible. Having a BCD that is up to 30% lighter and packs up to 50% smaller, helps achieve this. Loaded with innovation, the Covert uses an elastic mesh fabric on the bladder assembly to help streamline-the-profile while allowing for expansion of the bladder to a generous 32 lbs. (14.5 kg) of lift capacity. Using a durable 1000-denier Cordura nylon material and still coming in at 3.9 lbs. (1.77 kg), the Covert is probably the lightest and most-durable BCD on the market today. Its unique design allows it to be packed as small as a newspaper. The result is a tough and durable travel BCD.

The Covert BCD has lightly padded shoulder torso adjustable and sternum straps the shoulder straps are equipped with TSR squeeze-style" side release buckles. The shoulders are designed with wider straps for added comfort and has a Delrin D-ring mounting platform built-in. The adjustable waist strap allows for custom fitting the BC over a variety of exposure suits and is easily adjustable with one-hand. Both the sternum and waist straps also have squeeze-style" side release buckles. The BCD is designed to fit close to torso for low drag and the inner bladder can be easily patched in the field. The Covert is weight integrated with a 16 lbs. (7.26 kg) soft or hard weight capacity. The releasable touch fastener weight pockets can be easily load and unload through the top opening and the easy to use touch fastener releases with a quick downward motion of the pull handle. The BCD has a padded spine and lumbar support, dual cylinder bands for added stability and comes equipped with Zeagle's Bx Power Inflator Mechanism. The Bx Power Inflator makes preventative maintenance easy with its threaded lower mechanism that allows the attachment of a garden hose for fast and easy inner bladder rinsing. The Bx is also connected to a pull dump valve for rapid deflation. Trimming buoyancy in any position is made easy with the additional lower rear over-pressure relief/pull dump valve with pull cord. BCD is available in multiple sizes, comes with a low pressure quick disconnect hose with 3/8" threads and is made in the USA.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Tank strap will not fit a standard 23" aluminun tank

This BCD came with 2 tank straps. The upper strap is a simple strap with velcro attachment. It does not fit a standard 23" aluminum tank. Customer service is unable to understand the problem even though I send a picture and a detailed explanation. Unbelievable. I will have to return the BCD over this issue.

Great BC for the $

By Kenda B.

Compact, easy to travel with, very nice fit. The great quality you would expect from Zeagle. Probably my favorite BC to date. There isn’t a cumber bun, which I didn’t mind at all - but thought I’d mention it, as some buyers may not like.

 

Love it

By Joanna A.

Great BCD-super happy with both weight & performance. So easy to pack without sacrificing the quality/comfort on dives!

Great travel BCD

By James S.

from GRANTS PASS, OR, US

Great for traveling to distant shores. If you need more than about 18 pounds of weight, get additional weight pouches for the lower tank strap. Light, compact, and easy to pack, it was all I needed for a 2 week trip to Bonaire, and used it for 3 to 5 dives every day

 

Great BCD

By ASHLEY H.

from dallas, TX, US

I bought because it is light and easy to travel with. Not having a back plate is has not been noticeable when diving at all. The quality is great. I was a little worried if I would like the wing style inflation but it has not been an issue. The strap releases make taking off the BCD in the water so easy. Only thing I have noticed so far is that the jacket retains some water after use.

 

Very Good

By james s.

Very good quality and excellent price. I bought it on sale for 199. I haven't used it yet but the medium fits good at 5'10" and 175lbs. The weight pockets are further to the back than I expected and I like it. My front side is completely open and free except for the belt and shoulder straps. I think I'm gunna like it! I am strictly a warm water, recreational diver. Y'all can have the extreme stuff. My wife didn't like the fit so much and went with a more traditional wing(TUSA).

 

Happy with it.

By David A.

Great compromise on weight/size and functionality when traveling.

 

No regrets

By sixto g.

Bought this BC looking for the lightest possible weight for travel. Was a bit worried about how it would hold up with no backplate. Used it on 6 dives and I love how it performed. Very light, as long as you pull the lower strap tight it stays in place and performs very well. I have no regrets for this purchase. The maneuverability is so nice!

 

Zeagle Covert

Great travel BC. All Zeagle products have been great. The quality it truly professional.

 

Awesome BCD whether traveling or not.

By BENJAMIN D.

from SLC, UT, US

This is a light BCD for traveling. I have used it on two dive trips (16 dives first trip, 4 the second). It worked great both times. I like the simple weight pockets (my wife has the Zeagle Zena, the weight pockets in that BCD are dumb). Some complaints I have read about are the limited D rings. Only has one on each side. Hasn't been a problem for me. I have also read the BCD allows some water in the inflation chamber. I've had a little water inside on occasion, but nothing serious. When we did a cavern dive and had to walk with the tanks to the Cenote, it was very comfortable to walk in even with the tank on the back.

 

Great travel BCD

By Doc906

from Adrogue, Buenos Aires, AR

This BCD is great for air travel. It's very light and minimalist. Weight pockets are good enough to fit a warm water setup. It felt really comfortable. D-rings are small and plastic made, but remember it is a lightweight travel bcd. Overall I was very pleased with it.

 

Great for travel

By ROBERT W.

from tacoma, WA, US

Very light weight. Easy to pack in your dive bag with room to spare.

 

Zeagle Covert

By stevie W.

from New York, DC, US

I received the bcd and when I compared it to my Ranger it was a suitable alternative. For a travelling BCD it is awesome however I would suggest you buy it one size bigger than your normal BCD. If you are used to a 45LBS lift then you will need to adjust to the lower capacity. The straps are a bit narrow and I would suggest a small d- ring to facilitate better grip and tug on the shoulder straps.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Richard V  I have a long history using the predecessor to this BCD for 21 years in remote areas in the SoPac reachable only by cruising sailboats, but that venerable BCD is just worn out now. Company's founder Dennis Bulin was my neighbor growing up in landlocked Wisconsin. His integrity and leadership in developing robust products just blew me away. I'm a Zeagle advocate all the way. This replacement BCD will last the rest of my life.
KEITH M  hoping be will more compact and lighter for extended travel. Love my other zeagle BCD!!
Perry C  Lightweight and ease of packing for travel. I like to dive my own gear but my XS Scuba wing BCD is too bulky and heavy.
Caroline W  Aqua Lung BCD is a bit bulky for travel. Bought this one for travel.
ANDREW A  Travelling diver. Just ordered Zeagle Covert. Weight is 3.9lbs-wow you can pack it in carry on luggage.
Shopper  Whats the width of the waist webbing?
JAMAR R  I didn't measure it but I would guess its about 40 in. I am a husky build 5' 11'' and I love this BCD It fits me with room to expand.
L T  It is about 1.5" wide this is a great BC for travel and highly bouyant if you fly and dive a lot go for it well worth the money
Tony W  Don’t know and can’t measure it because the ex got it in the divorce.
ANDREW P  1.5 inches
Shopper  How much does this BC weigh?
Guy G  Slightly less than 4 pounds.
ANDREW P  Mine weight 5.5lbs
NORRIS B  With a spare pocket and zeagle octo reg and few clip ons added it weighs right at 5 pounds. It folds up into a suitcase nicely, and supplies all the lift I need for diving with 10 lbs weights. It travels very well, and I love the fact that the weight pockets are self-contained. I always found detachable integrated pockets a pain. I would buy another one if this one gets old and worn.
