View Full Version : Trusty BCD ripped...need new - pockets!
January 15th, 2005, 12:22 AM
My trusty SeaQuest Spectrum IV got ripped the other day. Only in the pocket and it's more or less fixable, but I'm thinking the ol' girl might need to be replaced soon - she's gone above and beyond for me.
Main problem is that I absolutely adore this bc and they don't make them anymore!
Any suggestions welcome but it must have TWO large easy access zippered pockets - I use them all the time. I like the trim pockets on the shoulders. I love the padded back. No stupid neck strap/high strap, it should ride properly without that - or at least have one that can be snipped off.

Kinda glad to see that there aren't any obvious answers that I've overlooked!
But was hoping for some help! Anyone?

I have a Cressi 112 it has two large zipper pockets all kind of d rings plus a nice wrap round inflation on the surface, I took a knife to the straps across the chest, like all things it has a few bad points the inflator is a little slow and the hose is small in diametor but has a really good dump on the right shoulder, it also has the weight integrated system but I don't use that but do add a few pounds in the rear pockets for trim, it also has withstood a load of pool and open water dives this past two years at a guess I would say 250 pool dips over the past 2 yrs and a lot of wear and tear stuff and not a whole lot of washing off. and I use a steel 100 clynder which really rips the bcd's up
I like it.

The SP Classic plus has two giant pockets and two little ones. In my left giant one I carry a 50 lb. lift bag, a spare mask, and a G.I. Joe action figure along with several shells that I picked up, then forgot about. In my right giant pocket I have two pairs of work gloves, and lots of room. In my right small pocket I have an Ikelite C-4 flashlight with lanyard and in my left small pocket I think I have a slate.
It has a padded back. It has trim pockets. It is very easy to get in and out of (takes me 12 seconds), exceptionally stable, and extremely durable. I do believe it has a lifetime seam warranty. Here's more info. (http://www.scubapro.com/products/bcs/classic_plus/classic_plus.asp)
