Best Tavel BCD 2012
Examination of five good travel BCDs that are lightweight and provide good features and value to a variety of scuba divers from the amateur to advanced divers.
Professional underwater photographer, Steven Smeltzer presents opinions of several of his preferred BCDs on the market While there continues to be a number of terrific new lightweight BCDs which have come out in the last 3 years and Smeltzer supplies an evaluation of some of the best BCDs.
Smeltzer believes aim of any BCD ought to be function first and after that comfort. The Lightweight BCDs assessed at this time provide a practical degree of function and along with excellent fit. The trade off on travel BCDs is more often than not limitations in storage pockets, lift (which is extremely important if you carry a lot of weight when you dive), tank security while you are scuba diving, D-rings for additional gear and how the BCD behaves when you are on the surface.
The BCDs discussed provide reasonable form and function and a differing degree of optional features.
