Just want to check, what you guys think of this BCD?

http://www.oceanmaster.com/BCJacketFeatures.htm

I bought it direct from US and thought the company stopped selling, but I recently checked the website again and they have the 2011 model. I sent a quick email to them and told me BCD + shipping to Malaysia will cost USD950.

So, for this price ~ probably around RM 3k, what would you have bought? Will you buy this?

looks cool but a bit pricey.... a wing with jacket harness.... detachable some more...

My 2 cents..... maybe worth less than 2 cents

i thought it's pretty cool as well, that's why i bought it, but sometimes when i see the bp/wing setup, i also drool. much more streamline and actually cheaper than this as well!!

too bad la, last time based in penang, not much choice, only Mares, so got this from the US. come down KL work, saliva also drool.

They don't state the lift capacity.

Looks pretty big.

Prepare for "flapping" in the water while you dive. Heehee

Nice BCD.

But I agree with the rest. It's pretty big.

If it were for me, I'll only get this if I'm doing Tec or I need to carry a lot of heavy stuff.

Price wise it's a bit expensive too. I definitely want to check out Halcyon, Diverite, Frog or Oxycheq before I decide on this BC.  ;)

Less is more for me.  ;)

well, probably have to spend more to buy a donut to change with the wing if i want a smaller and slimmer overall BCD. so far so good i guess, but heavy lah. all using balistic nylon
