Great BCD.....happy with purchase

By Flipperhead

This is the first BCD I have ever owned despite having over 220+ dives. I had never wanted to deal with the bulk, weight and luggage issues. I had done extensive research including the newer wing plate BCD but felt this fit my needs the best. This BCD is not only light, but very comfortable to wear. I really like the zip jacket feature as it makes getting in/out a BCD really easy and quick. Some people mentioned the back-inflate makes you lean forward on the water surface but I didn't think i...

PERFECT BC for Women

By Vicky P.

I am 5 feet 2 inches and weigh about 120 pounds. Given this size, the small size fit the best. Remember, as you descend, your body compresses and you may need to tighten the BC around you. I also wear a full 3mm wetsuit when I dive in 79 degree F waters. The fit tapered to my waist well and I didn't feel like I was swimming in the BC even at 80 feet deep. (NOTE: I had the BC on its smallest position. This will be helpful because if you are smaller than I, this BC may be too big, if you are sl...

Zeagle Zena Women's BC:
The greatest difficulty in properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a smaller size, or allowing for the bust, but lies in the fact that women's bodies have a defined waist where a waistband must fasten in order to secure the BC. At the same time, women tend to have both a shorter torso length and a lower center of buoyancy compared to men. Conventional buoyancy systems, which would ideally be worn lower for best balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest part of the waist, in order to be secure. The Zena's twin waist and hip band system provides a way for women to securely position the weights and buoyancy below waist level, around the body's center of buoyancy. All of Zeagle's buoyancy systems are available with women's sizing options and can be adjusted to provide excellent fit and functionality for women divers.

The Zena BC has been designed by women as a buoyancy system specifically for women. The twin straps adjust to fit waist and hips independently, while the elastic front zippered panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagle's patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted, positioning the weights low, around the body's center of buoyancy. The torso adjustable shoulder straps and side straps come equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning/doffing. The Zena BCD has a 31 lbs. (13.6 kg) lift capacity bladder, and a 24 lbs. (10.9 kg) capacity Ripcord Weight System with a 16 lbs. (7.26 kg) rear trim pocket non-releasable capacity. Attachment of accessories is made easy with the four stainless steel D-rings on the vest and storage of gloves, small light or other accessories can be accomplished with the expandable mesh quick-pocket" at waist. Built to last from the Zena will give years of reliable service. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear overpressure relief/pull dump valves.

With this durable design you also get Zeagle's time proven, rugged Bx Power Inflator System. No more struggling trying to get fresh water in through the inflator mouth piece! The Bx Power Inflator comes standard on all Zeagle BC's. Now you can really rinse out the bladder of your BC. Simply unscrew the Bx Coupler, screw on a standard garden hose, turn the water on and super rinse and clean the inner bladder. Inflator includes a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose for attachment to the first stage regulator. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear overpressure relief/pull dump valves. BCD weighs 6.2 lbs. (2.8 kg), and is made in the USA.

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

Probably not for a new diver, especially in currents

I LOVE the fit of this BC, but found the following problems on a dive trip to the Philippines: I had trouble getting air out of the bladders and kept going to the top; I thought the zip front would be good, but we had to take off the BCs in the water and the zip was not as easy to use as the traditional quick-release buckles; also no strap across the sternum. I ended up having to borrow a different BC from the dive shop. I'm going to try to learn how to use this one, but I caution anyone ...

Top in quality and comfort

By SCOTT F.

Excellent BC for most all women when fitted correctly! Comfortable and great for travel. Zeagle BC’s are know for robust and durable construction. As an instructor this is my go to for women that are serious divers.

 

Zena BC is awesome!

By Kathleen B.

This BC is awesome! The vest design is easy to get on and off and doesn’t ride up like a cummerbund. Highly recommended!

 

Zeagle Zena BC

By Kim S.

Love it! More lthan I expected! You can wear black front or purple design (interchangeable) 2 vest in one!

 

Game Changer!

By Christi G.

from Dallas, TX, US

I love the customizable fit, color choices, light weight, simplicity, streamlined design, double tank straps. I bought the Zeagle accessory sport pocket and I'm glad I did. Streamlined and great pocket to stow safety sausage, whistle, small flashlight, noisemaker. Easy to access. I found the small expandable mesh pocket that came with it utterly useless unless expanded -- thus dangling and spoiling my streamlining. I removed it entirely. Overall, this is an amazing BCD and I am in love with it.

 

Great fit 2nd time around

By Beckstor

When first purchased I bought a large. It was a great fit although once tightened the loose ends were quite long and I found that when I tightened the shoulder straps as far as they could go there was no way to help the hang of my tank, which was a bit too low. I ended up exchanging the large for a medium and it made all the difference!! This BCD fits famously!! I am fairly large busted and when wearing a basic BCD the vests moved around quite a bit because the difference in fit from my bust to waist. With this BCD you can tighten/adjust to fit every curve of your torso. Plus it looks kinda sexy for a BCD. Be sure to buy the weight pouches!! They do not come with the BCD and you will need them. I purchased the back pad as well but not sure i would need it.

 

Best BC I've ever used - EVER!

By debbythegold

as an U/W photographer, perfect 'trim' on my buoyancy is essential. I am about to go muck-diving and you DON'T want to be the diver who stirs up the muck. I have never had such perfect control over my buoyancy as with this BCD - in over 30 years of diving, renting gear, having owned my own 'traditional vest' BCD's - never. Also, the integrated weights ROCK. Monica at Leisurepro is the best. ************************

 

Super BC, get fitted before you buy

By Boat D.

Delivery was received as promised. Packaging was good, product received in superb condition. Customer service is good and friendly. Helpful where they can be and understanding where they can't.

By Stacey

Prompt delivery and item arrived in perfect condition!

 

Very comfortable for a petite woman

By Smalldiver

Once I learned to properly weight myself (3 lbs each back pocket in salt water with a small tank) this was a perfect BCD for me. It fit like a good hiking pack would fit and was very easy to adjust. The customer service at Zeagle was very helpful in advising me on the weight adjustments.

 

Excellent fit

By Cali-Girl

I was using rentals and friends before I purchased this one. I had no idea how comfortable BCDs could be. I have a large chest area so all the others I used would squish so tight in order to fit around the waist. This one has two adjustments to tighten right under the chest (at my high waist line) and a second at the belly button zone. It also has the comfortable front portion that covers just enough of my top half to not make me feel like the "girls" are on display. I can dive in comfort. Excellent BCD!

 

Great BC

By marinesci

This is the first back inflate BC I've used, and so far it's been pretty awesome. I got a great deal on it and the lifetime guarantee is just icing on the cake, when I'm going spend a few hundred dollars on something...guarantees make it that much better.

I really like the zip jacket feature as it makes getting in/out a BCD really easy and quick. Some people mentioned the back-inflate makes you lean forward on the water surface but I didn't think it was bad and didn't notice too much. The weight-pockets in the back can help to compensate if you are concerned. Lastly, I purchased the Zeagle lumbar pad as some had suggested but unfortuantely bought the wrong one (regular Zeagle ranger), not for Zena so it is a little bulky:-( As for size, I got a Small and am 5'4" and 126lbs. It was the right size and fits even with the lumbar pad.

PERFECT BC for Women

By Vicky P.

I am 5 feet 2 inches and weigh about 120 pounds. Given this size, the small size fit the best. Remember, as you descend, your body compresses and you may need to tighten the BC around you. I also wear a full 3mm wetsuit when I dive in 79 degree F waters. The fit tapered to my waist well and I didn't feel like I was swimming in the BC even at 80 feet deep. (NOTE: I had the BC on its smallest position. This will be helpful because if you are smaller than I, this BC may be too big, if you are slightly taller or bigger than I, then it should still fit fine.) There were enough pockets and places on the BC to attached various items. The bigger the BC, the more pockets you may have. I really liked the zipper front because it was easy to secure the BC. The quick release gave me comfort in knowing that I could get out of the BC quickly should I need to and "step out" of the unit. I found the quality to be outstanding. It is very easy to clean with a piece that easily attaches to a hose for an internal clean water rinse. I just purchased this BC and have used it on 12 dives. I am looking forward to doing more dives this year.

 

This was recommended and WOW

By CHERYL C.

I tried this BC out in a pool and it worked great. It fits very well and is very comfortable, not like what I am used to. It is also light and will be better for traveling. I will be going to Costa Rica in March and I will let you know how it does.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JENNY H  I've now had this Zena for a couple of years now and I LOVE this back inflate, front zipper BC! GREAT quality, ingenious designs, simplicity... absolutely perfect for me...a 5'5", advanced woman diver. Was looking/tried on the women's Tusa, Scuba Pro, and Sherwood BC's...Talked with a pro diver in the Philippines(Leisure Pro expert) and she told me what great products Zeagles are...I couldn't agree more! You won't regret buying a Zeagle.
J W W  she wanted it
JAN B  I have a Zeagle and have been very pleased so for my daughter scuba buddy this I bought for her.
Robert L  My wife is 5’6” but the XS size is under 5’. She tried on a friends small at it was slightly to big. Will the XS be too short?
Matthew H  I ordered according to the size chart, large, and it was too big. For me a medium. Large was just a bit too big. So in my opinion the size chart is not accurate.
JIM P  I got a small for my wife and she is 5'4" but you can buy different size front panels. I would suggest buying the small bcd and a second front panel in XSmall
Joe S  The XS should work, but It is hard to say without knowing the exact attributes and comparing them to the size chart.
Robert L  She fits all the categories for XS except height. Waist to shoulder 15” waist 27”. She tried the sm on and had all 4 belly panel straps as small as it would go so the XS should be fine in the vest. My only concern was the shoulder being to short. The Zeagle site size chart only shows a 1” difference in shoulder so it it’s true then it should work.
Robert L  Does this have a rigid backplate?
Arthur W  No
Joe S  This does not have a rigid backplate. It is a stiffened nylon material with two cam bands to secure the tank which gives it the stability you would want from any BC.
j m  No. The fabric of the BC itself and the bladder form the bavk.
Ivan B  I’m sorry but I don’t remember... it was a gift to a friend but it seems to me...no
Alicia F  No it does not
Joyus User daw... J  It is not uncomfortable.....if that is your concern. I have truly enjoyed my Zeagle BC!!
patti h  Yes it does
