Hydros Pro BC, w/ Air2 V GEN, Men, Black, S is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with all aspects of BCD Rented several bcd during PADI Open Water and Advanced training. When I quizzed dive masters and instructors about equipment they mentioned their desire to acquire the Hydros Pro. The fit and comfort for my 6'3", 170lbs frame is perfect with the addition of optional side pockets. Very compact. Mask, reg, snorkel, G2, flashlight, sharkskin, GoPro and fins all fit in/on included backpack. Air2 reduces weight and the hassle of octo hose. Drys quickly and absorbs very little water. Is ready to pack up for travel after hanging in hotel overnight. I carry 4lbs of lead just in case but expect to reduce or eliminate after master certification. Every accessory manufactured to this point has been added. All work well. The ninja pocket is great for storing the occasional bit of trash found for surface disposal. Switched out the color weight pocket covers. It's very easy for dive buddy to locate me in a group. One bungee cord of the three that compress the air bladder pulled out of it's socket. ScubaPro office in Sydney was contacted the next morning. The cab ride from the hotel, repair, tour of the facility and ride back took less than one hour. I missed none of the scheduled dives for the day. Fantastic and prompt customer service. Purchased in October of 2017. Have met four other new divers with the same model. None had any complaints. Dive boat and shop owners notice it immediately and comment on the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel or any diving for that matter! Ordered this in October 2016, but demand was so high, that It wasn't ready for my December Bonaire trip (used my teaching S-P Equator instead). Finally arrived in March 2017, and boy, I haven't looked back. Added the Ninja Pocket/Knife Attachment/Mini D Ring accessories, and it's as close to the perfect setup as one could want. The rubbery front/shoulder straps, stick to your suit, and prevent the common "ride-up". The lack of fabric, makes it an instant dry. which is ideal for that last day of travel, when you need your gear dry in a hurry! I've not used the "travel straps" option, as I prefer the utility that the integrated pockets provides (plus the aforementioned accessories). The included bag, is however, now my carry-on, for regs and camera kit (too valuable for check-in luggage IMO). Just finished the BVI Cuan Law live aboard, and the BCD was a champ. You know this jacket has made it's mark, when the divemasters ask:" How do you like your Hydros Pro? I was thinking of getting one!" Photo shows Ninja Pocket under right Weight Pouch, and Mako Knife /Nova 200 torch (both with detachable retractors). DAN Surface Signal Kit, (or Lift Bag), attached to bottom bungees, and there are more Bungee attachment points at side of backplate.

is it possible to purchase a longer waist belt (with the integrated weight pockets)?

Asked by: Dave88
Good Morning, You can purchase a longer belt but it is dependent on where you start. Please be aware that the waist belt is adjustable in that BC. In the back interior, it can be adjusted to become longer if you should need it to be. Once you have the XXL, it doesn't get larger than that. If you should need further assistance, please visit your local authorized SCUBAPRO dealer. Thank you for your inquiry and Happy Diving

Do you have a knife that attaches to the grommets on the weight pouches

Asked by: Steve57
I use a ScubaPro Mako Titanium knife, and it fits to the optional knife attachment backplate perfectly (the White Tip is a less expensive option). I recommend attaching knife handle to a detachable retractor reel, so it won't accidentally fall out, which can be an expensive replacement.

Dear team , Do i need to use weight belt ot just put the weight inside the BC bocket , what the differance between the two models of BC hydros pro

Asked by: Mido
Mido: yes and yes! You can use the integrated weights (plus 2 non-dumpable one kilo trim pockets, behind back), on their own, BUT most cautious divers will carry some weight on a belt, that they could release in an emergency ascent.  Much cheaper to replace a belt than integrated pockets!
