    Hi everyone,

    I was finally able to test my hydros pro! As promised I bring a short feedback.

    I dived in the Attersee lake in Austria for 7 dives over 4 days with a dry suit. I am not a fresh water expert.

    I had to have quite a bit of weight, 12kg, but the weight pockets and the trim weight pockets did a good job. 4kg in each integrated weight pockets and 2kg in each trim pockets. No space problem, the weights fit well.

    The dives were between 20 and 30m in decent conditions for lake diving. The BCD was a good fit for me providing good freedom of movement and way enough lift for this setup. The Hydros was comfortable on land and in the water.

    All in all I am quite happy with the hydros. The only downside is that I would have liked having maybe a pocket to stove some items.

    You can get the ninja pocket or hip pocket that attach to the integrated weight pockets. Made for the hydros. Glad to hear you like the bc. I love mine.

    Thanks! I saw the ninja pocket before, I like that it can be folded when not used. I guess I'll go for this.
