Your BCD is the control center of your dive, ensuring quick access to air and equipment while allowing you to manage your location in the water column. The IST J-1700 Mercury Buoyancy Control Device (BCD) with Weight Pockets is a workhorse BCD with the practical features you need and appreciate most in this crucial piece of dive gear.
The durable 420D TPU coated Nylon shell encases a vest-style buoyancy system for comfort, quick deflation, and maximum stability at the surface. Adjustable sternum strap helps to avoid chest squeeze when the vest is inflated, while the adjustable cummerbund and harness allow you to get a custom fit. Padded backpack for added back support and comfort.
Large, easy-access cargo side pockets are roomy enough to hold your essential safety and redundancy gear. Side weight pockets are conveniently located under the cargo pockets, and offer large, quick release buckles for easy one-handed operation. 2 additional rear trim pockets hold up to 1Kg (2.2 lb.) of weight each.
Cold water capable power inflator (IF-301) with pull dump and 2 additional rear quick dump valves for speedy inflation and deflation when making buoyancy adjustments, descending or ascending. The dump valves are totally redesigned to be waterproof, preventing water from entering the bladder when deflated. The exhaust valves also offer a low profile surface to reduce drag in the water.
When deflated, this BCD has a low inherent buoyancy: you won’t have to lug around a lot of extra weights just to compensate for the buoyancy of the BCD itself.
