I bought this because I only dive 2 or 3 times a year. But the price is equal to a few rentals and saves a world of inconvenience for me. I am very pleased with the quality of the construction and comfort... with and without a wet-suit. Using the provided trim weight pouches I was easily able to set this rig up so that I was effortlessly horizontal at depth and vertical on the surface. There are plenty of loops sewn onto the front straps to add multiple D rings. I prefer to travel light, but you can dress it to the "9s". I highly recommend the Mares Pegasus BCD!
