BCD riding up your torso and you keep pulling it down

Post Number:#1  Postby decimal86 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 6:41 pm

hi

have you ever had that feeling that you bought/rented the wrong sized BCD?

because it keeps riding up your body and like it was gonna float over your head? and you were going to attach a DIY crotch strap to make it behave?

well...i found out that it was because i was NOT using my integrated weight pouch....

i decided to use a weight belt and that made the BCD lighter and it 'creeped' upwards. but its behaving now.

now what am i gonna do with this sumo crotch strap .....??

yeah i get the same feeling too when i rented BCD but never come across in my head about the relation between integrated weights holding down your
bcd from creeping upwards.

Anyway the crotch strap. Save it. That thing is costly.
