    I was looking into getting one of these, but I can't tell if you can inflate it manually. Does anyone know if they are? Please let me know.

    Another thing: Would you be worried that if someone had to come help you (not your buddy) and they looked at your BC and said, "where the heck is the inflator?" Looks like a cool design and I may be taking the safety aspect to far, but I just like to have all my bases covered. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Travis

    Just to get a viewpoint on this BC (for what it's worth). These seam like a nice streamlined BC, but caution. Even though we are a dealer for these BC's, they have not really taken off. One thing is that their isn't a problem with the current system. Secondly if you do have any issues, there are not to many shops that may have knowledge in fixing them or even better, the parts to do it. We have serviced these before so we do have some knowledge of this style BC, so there are some divers that are diving them so if you want to get his BC, I can help you out.

    I've had one of these for about 7 years and really like it. It is a bit bulky for travel but I've managed.
