About Scubapro Bella BCD
Hey ladies! You wouldn’t wear a man’s suit to the office or a pair of man’s shoes to go out dancing, so why would you wear scuba gear designed for male divers? The Bella BCD from Scubapro is ideal for women who love to dive, expect excellence from their dive equipment, and want gear that fits like a dream. The Bella BCD will hug your body and increase your equipment-based comfort like you’ve never experienced before. Its contoured hip indents will free you from that “digging in” feeling that is so common while wearing BCDs that were designed for men and the new shoulder cut make donning and doffing easier. The padded backpack and soft neoprene neck mean no more points of pressure and uncomfortable sore spots due to gear that rubs you wrong.
Don’t worry – the Bella BCD isn’t just about comfort; it is also about function. The zippered cargo pockets and conveniently located D-rings will allow you to easily stow and located your gear and any goodies you find along the way. In addition, the Scubapro-exclusive wraparound air bladder will allow you to remain streamlined and in control because, unlike most other air bladders, it doesn’t stick like wings out when inflated; instead, it continues to hug you and retain its cradle-like shape, even when fully inflated.
One-hand operation stainless steel cam action super-cinch tank band allows easy adjustment and security. Bella has 6 stainless D-rings for attachment of accessories. Scubapro’s quick-release integrated weight system allows perfect buoyancy and fast weight release in the event of an emergency. Pouches accommodate 10 lbs. (4.54 kg) each and are secured in specially-designed pockets with oversized buckles. Two rear trim pockets counterbalance front weights and provide a well-balanced swimming position with 8 lbs. to 10 lbs. (3.6 kg to 4.54 kg) capacity. The Bella has a flexible cummerbund with sturdy plastic quick-release buckle that immediately adapts to different body types (morphologies) and suit thickness on the spot. The Bella air-cell is manufactured from durable 420D Nylon with a polyurethane coating for air tight integrity. BCD has a lift capacity from 22.5 lbs. (10.2 kg) to 42.7 lbs. (19.4 kg).
For proper buoyancy control the Bella BCD comes standard with Scubapro’s Balanced Power Inflator and has a 3-dump deflation system that enables divers to dump air from a variety of underwater positions. In the up-right position you can use either the left-or-right shoulder pull-dumps with the right shoulder pull cord or the left shoulder integrated cable activated power inflator shoulder dump. When inverted in the water the lower left rear pull dump can facilitate buoyancy trim. Scubapro’s Balanced Power Inflator provides a high inflation speed, especially at depth. Inflator has different shaped inflation and purge buttons for easy use even in extremely low light or murky water conditions. Included with the inflator is a 3/8″ threaded low pressure hose for attachment to the first stage regulator. BCD is available in multiple sizes with lift capacities from 22.5 lbs. (10.2 kg) to 42.7 lbs. (19.4 kg) and now has great bold graphics. BCD comes with an owner’s manual.
