Hydros Pro BCD


On a recent dive trip to Bali I was fortunate enough to don the new Scubapro Hydros Pro BCD. As it comes with a separate webbing harness [without the integrated weight system] this was my choice for warm water diving with minimal weight. The two rear trim weight pockets were ample for 1-2 kg each, although I didnt require any lead in my 2.5mm wetty. Its light to wear down to the dive sight and fits snug and well streamlined while diving. The monoprene back-plate moulds and adheres nicely and stops BCD movement while in any position under water. The rear lower dump is on the left akin to the Scubapro Tek range with the improved inflator hose on the left shoulder. The wing is neatly bungeed and provides 40lbs lift. Two shoulder D-rings and left and right at the hip provide adequate attachment. There’s a couple of neat attachment points integrated to the top harness connection for bolt-snaps. There’s also the option to add a crotch strap for those technical dives.
All round great design, without clutter, and feels great in the water.
My score 8.5/10 ….I’ve not dived in a better single backmount BCD.
