I purchased this BC because I hate the way a jacket BC squeezes me (a problem for most ladies!) and entered the market for a back-inflate. I love that this fits comfortably, and the air distribution keeps you very streamlined. My complaint is that it's not for a tall diver. It fits me really well (like a nice-fitting backpack), everything is very accessible, but the cummerbund sits exactly inline with the weight pouches. For me, this left all my weight too far up on my waist and throws me off balance. I have to wear a separate weight belt lower on my hips to be comfortable. Also, this BC is very light and folds up really nicely for travel. The Tusa weight system is a little complicated at first (I had a friend who's a dive instructor tell me I'd drown!) and difficult to release, but once you play with them & figure it out, they're alright.
