The Solid BCD is a fantastic Jacket style BCD that provides plenty of lift. This durable BCD has two zippered pockets and multiple D-rings for storage and attachment of accessory items with two 1″ (25 mm) technopolymer D-rings on the pockets. The BCD has three over-pressure relief/dump valves with two located on the left and right shoulders and a third lower valve on the rear right of the air cell. All three can be manually dumped two with pull cords and the other with the power inflator mechanism. If used at dive facilities a size indicator is highly visible on the right shoulder.
BCD adjustable sternum strap along with both 2″ (50 mm) torso adjustment straps and waist strap are all equipped with squeeze-style side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. The light-weight back support is rigid for proper cylinder stability but is fully padded for comfort and the ridged backpack is equipped with a grab handle for easy transport and gear donning assist. BCD is built to last made from 500D Cordura (exterior part) and 420D nylon (interior). The Cressi Solid BCD come with a 3/8″ threaded quick-disconnect low-pressure hose and owner’s manual.
Cressi Solid BCD Features:
- Light-Weight Rigid Back Support for Proper Cylinder Stability
- Fully Padded Back Plate for Comfort
- Construction: 500D Cordura (exterior part) and 420D Nylon (interior)
- Ridged Backpack Equipped w/Grab Handle for Easy Transport and Gear Donning Assist
Lean backpack with reduced thickness to the maximum to lighten it. Very resistant and semi-flexible material. Shock absorber in thermoplastic rubber for better fixing of the tank. It is possible to use double tank strap. Includes safety strap for fastening the bcd to the tank valve.
Reinforcement in the neck to avoid possible tears due to falls of tanks when the bcd and regulator are mounted.
Cordura 500 Denier. Cordura provides greater resistance to erosion due to long-term friction and prolong the duration of the thermo welding as it is harder than Nylon. This feature is especially important in diving centers where the inflating of the bcd is repetitive and frequent up to the limit of its capacity.
