Scubapro Go: Key Features and Benefits
The Scubapro Go BCD is an all-around jacket style BC that is popular with divers who want a quality BCD that is also lightweight for traveling. Below are also a few features we think make this Go BCD stand out from other on the market.
Durable and Lightweight Construction
The Scubapro Go is made with a durable Nylon 210 denier fabric that can withstand wear and tear. This is a quality material that will last you many years of diving. While being very durable, is still very lightweight coming in just under eight pounds. This makes it perfect for traveling divers who don’t want to lug a heavy BC around with them.
Fold Easy For Traveling
This is because it has a soft backplate that is to fold and pack away in its own traveling bag. Although it has a soft backplate there are two tank bands to keep the dive tank secure and stable on your back.
Easy Accessible Dump Valves
It also comes with 3 dump valves, which include 2 overpressure and relief dump valves, as well as 1 cable-activated pull dump valve. This makes adjusting the level of inflation with the Scubapro GO BCD extremely easy and is situated to make them very easy to reach at a moment’s notice.
Well-padded for a Comfortable Fit
The Go BCD is designed to be comfortable to wear even when fully loaded with gear. This is not only due to the lightweight design but also due to how it is constructed. It comes with a well-padded back panel and fully adjustable waist, chest, and shoulder straps.
Simple Weight Integrated
The integrated weight system on the Scubapro Go BCD is simple and efficient. The quick-release integrated weight pouches ditch easily and securely with low-profile squeeze buckles. This makes it easy to add or remove weights as needed while keeping them securely in place.
