In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.
The AquaLung Pro HD was my first BCD and we still own a number of them as part of the Social Diving rental equipment.
It’s priced really competitively but has all the features you could want from such a jacket-style BCD.
Integrated weight pockets that work like a charm, lightweight, four relief valves, extra trim weight pockets…You usually find this stuff only in high-end models.
I mean…what else are you expecting from a BCD apart from diving for you? 😄
Whether you are a beginner or advanced diver looking for a mid-range BCD, you will not be disappointed.
If you travel a lot for diving, its small size also means you have more space to pack other stuff on your next diving vacation.
They also released a brand new design in 2022 which makes it look even cooler. At the same time, they introduced different cuts for men/women since the old ones were sometimes a little too wide and bulky for smaller divers.
The SureLock II integrated weights system is one of my personal favorites out there and it’s super simple to use.
Fill the weight pockets with lead or soft weights of your choice and clip the pockets into your BCD. You’ll hear a click sound and then it’s secured safely.
It doesn’t get easier than this.
Comfortable, unbreakable, and super cheap, this jacket-style BCD will serve you well for years to come and is the best mid-range BCD for scuba divers.
My Tip: Get it in one size smaller than you usually use as it is a bit on the larger side.
The Aqualung Pro HD is one of the best mid-range BCDs for scuba divers with an amazing weight system and everything you could want in a jacket-style BCD.
