years of diving in malaysia , never seen anyone wearing a Saekodive BCD.
Mask, booties etc yes.

If no one can comment ,best you grade the BCD base on
1)material - durable or not (cordura %?, nylon or wat ever)
2)realease system- ez or troublesome to open and put on the body
3)weight - heavy or not for by air travelling
4)what type of diving is your style- photographer or just passing by diver

The Hurricane seems to be built for comfortable. Nicely padded back and padded shoulder straps.


But if you have a lot of other stuff you want to carry (camera gear, torch, writing tablet, sausage) the Glacier looks nice. It has a couple of extra chest pockets to distribute your stuff in.


Personally between the two, I'd go for Hurricane. Comfort is important in the long run.


But make sure you know where to get spare weight integrated pockets in Malaysia for Saekodive. Replacement parts is a source of annoyance. Weight pockets can sometimes go missing (or if it has a zip, that may break too).

Good info so now will have to decide....but will not rush into it. I really like the part about comfort being important as I'm looking at getting this BCD for my 12yr old son who's been diving for a year now.
Thank you for your help, both Run and SuperAdmin.
