About Scubapro Glide BC
This new Scubapro Glide BC will allow you to experience extremely comfortable diving. The Scubapro exclusive jacket style wrap-around air bladder retains its cradle like shape even when fully inflated. Fully adjustable, it comes with an integrated weight system and a wide range of exceptional features. The Glide is a weight integrated design with both releasable weight pockets with capacities from 20 lbs. to 24 lbs. (9 kg to 11 kg) and non-releasable rear trim weight pockets with 6 lbs. to 10 lbs. (2.7 kg to 4.5 kg) capacities. The BC comes equipped with Scubapro’s a stainless-steel cam-action buckle system for easy adjustment and sure grip. The BCD bladder is made from durable 420-denier nylon with a polyurethane external coating, a urethane internal laminate and is radio frequency (RF) welded for airtight integrity.
A custom fit is ensured with the BCD’s fully adjustable cummerbund, torso, waist and sternum adjustable strap assemblies. All straps are equipped with squeeze-style” side-release buckles for easy donning and doffing. The BCD provides ultimate comfort with its rotating torso buckles, and padded back pack. Attachment and storage or accessory items are not a problem with the 4-stainless steel D-rings and 2-zippered side pockets. The BC also has grommets for mounting of a BC knife.
To control your buoyancy the Glide X comes with a large shoulder overpressure relief valve with manual pull dump cord and Scubapro’s Balanced Power Inflator Mechanism.
