    diver's point (san juan and makati) has oxycheq wings as well as lots of items from other brands

    last time i checked a few weeks ago:
    oxycheq ultralight plate: 2,700 pesos
    oxycheq hogarthian harness set with crotch strap: 2,xxx pesos
    oxycheq 30 / 18 lbs wings: forgot the price but i remember checking and it was pretty close to the price you'll find on online stores
    they have various aluminum and steel plates as well

    This is my broken Seaquest BCD:

    It is actually the plastic ring of the jacket part (not the inflator part) that is broken. The actual jacket is fine and the inflator still works. Can I still save this or am I forced to upgrade to a proper BP/W? :)

    You'd have to find a shop that has the tool to un-do that fitting and install a new one, or send it away. Probably more hassle than it's worth.
    In that case:
    GET A BP/W.

    Thanks. Anyone tried ordering from leisurepro and having it shipped to the Philippines? They seem to have a lot of good deals there.

    Yes we've used the leisurepro combo with Johnnyair once - no problem. And i've used Johnny air with a combo of amazon and various other retailers about 20 times in the last few years.
