Workhorse
After 10 years I've replaced my Sea Elite Profile Hybrid BC with the Sea Elite Scout, simple because I'm better shape today than I was 10 years ago and needed a smaller BC. After 10 years, the Profile BC was still functioning great and the only visible wear was a little color fading and stiffening of the material. However, at the end of the day it never had a mechanical failure. In looking at the Scout BC I was happy to see they moved to a lighter material and kept most of the rugged features that made the profile so durable. Other than the material and lighter weight my only opervations out of the box are they have moved the pocket D rings to under the zipper, which were always in the way on my old BC (obviously a positive change), and for some reason (probable weight), they didn't make all the D rings metal, which I would have prefered over the nylon D ring products. One feature I like on my old BC this BC didn't have was the assured security of not losing a weight pocket due to a clip failure or my own failure to not clip in, however I do like the firm snap and release locks on the Scout BC much better. At the end of day divers can spend as little or as much on dive gear, and for most recreational divers it doesn't matter. For me when I look at product and focus on value (price and quality) and this product is well engineered, durable, and for me remains the best value year after year. I will update this review in late March after using Scout BC a few times, but wanted to call out first impressions are great.

Great Product
I saw this BCD on sale and decided to buy it for my recent trip to the Caribbean and did 4 dives in it. Worked just as well as the name brand BCD that I used for my OW certification. I have a large frame and the 2xl size fit great with room to tighten the straps. I look forward to many more dives with this BCD.

A must have!
I got this bcd in early 2016 and have made 40+ dives with it and it still looks brand new! I have been diving for over 15 years and have bought name brand bcd's for twice the price that did not hold up and dive as well as this model!

Excellent Value, Comfortable Fit
I purchased a complete kit including this BCD. After several dives I am very impressed with the quality. The fit is true and very comfortable. Integrated weight system is excellent. Two ditchable pockets in the front and two non-ditchable trim pockets on the back. I have had no problems with trim, buoyancy or lift with this BCD. Even includes a very nice tether for your flashlight or other tools in one of the zipper pockets. Highly recommended if purchased in a kit.

Good Product
Just did 20 dives with the Scout BCD that I recently bought. It is well constructed and I had absolutely no difficulties with it.It fit well and was comfortable. It's nice that it has an integrated weight system with drop-able and the Non-drop-able weights. The Non drop able are located high in the back of the BCD and general weight balance is very easy and nice. It has very nice zip pockets in easy to get to areas with plenty of space to store flashlights and other stuff. And the whole package is pretty compact and doesn't weight too much. I was easily able to get it , my reg package and most of my other dive gear in a flight carry on bag.

Question:
If you're a tweener in size do you go up or down? I'm 5ft 4 and weigh 160. In others I've written a medium I think.
1 ANSWER(S)
Answer:
Thank you for your question. According to the chart, a size small would be a better fit, but it is very important to go by the waist measurements as well.

Question:
Is the Is the buoyancy system of this BCD similar to a hybrid?
1 ANSWER(S)
Answer:
Thank you for your question. The Sea Elite Scout BCD is a jacket style BCD, meaning that most of the air when you inflate goes to the front of the BCD, so you sit more upright in the water. There is a hybrid filter in the BCD section of our website that should narrow down your search. I hope this helps. If there is anything else we can do for you please let us know. Thanks again.

Question:
What size would best suit me for the Sea Elite Scout Bcd? 5'10"... 182 lbs,thanks
1 ANSWER(S)
Answer:
For most people, you can go by what size shirt you wear. Sounds like you would probably be a Large. It can be a little difficult to size perfectly based on just height and weight, but almost all of the straps on this BC are adjustable to fit.

Question:
Is this the same product that had a recall in May 2011?
"The spring in the over pressure valve can corrode and break preventing the buoyancy control device from retaining air, posing a drowning hazard to consumers."
1 ANSWER(S)
Answer:
Thank you for your question. The Sea Elite Scout shares the same name with the BCD from 2011 but has gone through several redesigns since then. There are no current recalls on any scout bcd's being sold. I hope this helps. If there is anything else we can do for you please let us know. Thanks again
