Great travel BCD

Light weight and easy to pack. Bought this for my wife. Size is perfect. Great customer service. Ordered a 2013 discontinued model but it was not available so Leisure Pro substituted the 2016 model for the same price. Very happy with BCD.

Great BC for a small person

All sizes of this BC are the same (look at the lift) except the strap lengths. When mine arrived the 'bag part' of the shoulder straps ended above my collar bones and the old "slide on" weight pockets would have been better than the newer attached ones which cannot be mounted upside down which i would have preferred.

Great BC for Travel

By John J.

from Northridge, CA, US

When weight matters (as in traveling), this is a great BC to take. It weighs only 5 pounds when dry and acts more like a wing-style BC because all of its flotation is in the back, completely unrestricting your front. I added a trim pocket to each side of each of the two straps and that allows me to dial in the trim perfectly -- no matter what size tank is available and what personal gear is attached to my BC for a given dive. My only gripe is that the D-rings are about 1-inch instead of the standard 2-inches, which make them difficult to feel for and clip items back on to during a dive. to get around this challenge, I added a crotch strap of 1-inch webbing with its own 1-inch D-ring with a 5-inch stainless steel carabiner clipped through the D-ring. That way, in a pinch I can bolt snap anything to the carabiner and move on.

 

Exactly what I expected.

By Mike M.

from Corvallis, OR, US

Very well made. Looking forward to not having to rent gear when I travel. Fit is very similar to my Halcyon backplate ( I don't side mount....yet). Would buy again.

 

Light weight with great features and flexibility.

I purchased this for travel, but it has turned into my favorite BCD!!

 

Very good BC

By WILLIAM B.

I really like this BC. It's light and feels more like an old-fashioned backpack like I learned on back in the '60s. It's almost like not wearing a bc at all. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a lightweight, comfortable, minimalist back-inflate BC.

 

Great lightweight BC

Scubapro LiteHawk

By JAMES Y.

from Lilburn, GA, US

I have not had a chance to try it yet. I am surprised Scubapro used a cheap tank band rather that the signature cam buckle. LeisurePro did substitute the newer model for the discontinued model for the same price. It looks good and should be a great BC.

Very Light weight BCD. so travel equipment best choice.

 

Like wearing nothing.

By jeff s.

from Newport Beach, CA, US

I am still trying to figure out my long term placement of weights, knocker, whistle, surface marker buoy, etc. but I see this as a good thing. This light and easy setup kind of forces you to clarity - what do you need and where do you want it? I love it.

 

It is light and responsive. Suitable for travel purposes.

Awesome fit....weights...eeeh

By Mark G.

from Richmond, VA, US

Ordered the older model, LP upgraded to current model at no extra charge :) 10 dives so far on this BC. The good: Fit is awesome, almost forgot I had on under water. Love the 2-in belt versus a cumber bund. On the surface, there was a tendency to roll to the side, but nothing major. The not so good: The weight/utility pockets. If they were meant as utility pockets then they are too far back to open/close underwater. As weight pockets, you can 5 or 6 lb max in each one, and I question how long they will hold up. I put 4lb in each side picket and 2lb in each rear pocket located near the tank straps (nice feature). I did purchase the add-on pockets by Scuba Pro, but returned them....they were huge. Who really needs to carry 20lb of weight in a BC this light duty? If Scuba Pro could come up with smaller set of weight pouches, (like the Oceanic Biolite's) they'd have a real winner here. Overall, good, not great BCD.

Is it possible to dump the weight? It's not clear from the specs?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The litehawk does not come with any weight pockets. There are two trim pockets, but they are non-dumpable. The two accessory pockets could be turned upside down and used as ditchable weight pockets, but they would only hold a couple pounds. You can remove the accessory pockets and put in dumpable weight pockets instead... https://www.leisurepro.com/p-scpwpqr/scubapro-accessory-quick-release-weight-pockets-pair

which scubapro litehawk model has the weight pockets? I need a blue/black womens M/L with standard inflator and weight pockets thanks!
john g on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is only one Litehawk. You may be thinking of the Ladyhawk or Nighthawk. The Lighthawk is one color per year, three sizes (unisex). The current 2018 till now, so far, is Blue/Black. I believe all the Litehawks come with the standard weight pockets. Some come with the AIR II power inflator.
