You cant lose with this gear. It was the first model I bought and it was really nice in the water and super light. The new Ventura is anextremely versatile BCD. This lightweight back inflation BC which weighs lessthan 5 lbs is fantastic for travel.
But it is also a great BCD for local divingas well. Whether diving in Cozumel or Catalina the Ventura is designed from theground up to be the best BC in class. At only 4.7 pounds, it's much more than the typical lightweight BC.The Venturaaircell is made of Double Coated TPU, which basically means it doesn't absorbany water and it doesn't gain water weight after repeated dives, a real pluswhen traveling. The Ventura is rugged, extremely compact, exceptionally stable, and featuresour uniquely designed integrated weight release system. The QDS Weight System is a very simple yet effective weight system that allows16 pounds of ditchable weight.
