This superbly practical lightweight BCD from Cressi has been designed with the travelling diver in mind. The combination of lightness, flexibility and features make this Travelight BCD a perfect choice both for dive trips as well as for divers who value the comfort, hydrodynamics and sense of freedom provided by this low bulk designed BCD.
The ultra-light structure of Travelight and its anatomical cut make this jacket quite close-fitting and hydrodynamic, posing very little resistance underwater. Superbly practical for transport with space and weight restrictions: 2.6kg - size Medium
The weight of the jacket has been reduced to a minimum making this BCD super parctical for air travel and baggage allowance/space with size Medium weighing in at approximately 5.5lbs (2.6kg). By doing away with a traditional rigid back plate, the BCD now has a bendable structure, a stowage volume of just 135cm, (36x25x15 - size M), a simple little package. This female specific design is cut slightly shorter in the shoulder straps/back.
The air bladder design enhances the lateral distribution of air for a natural balance of weight. It combines traditional structure with notable buoyancy, and due to its waist-length shape and larger wings, it is especially hydrodynamic. Two spacious, deep pockets with zipper closures and bottom and side gussets ensure plenty of carrying capacity.
Cressi's integrated weight lock aid system 2.0 makes inserting and removing the pockets straightforward as the weight pockets fit perfectly in place. The D-ring located at the pocket opening eases the stress on the fabric and facilitates direct insertion. The pocket detaching mechanism has a 15mm spring effect in case of accidental snags, etc. The pockets are reinforced with a rigid plate to facilitate sliding. All sizes are the same, from XS to XL, as are the left and right sides. Each weight pockets has a 4. 5kg weight capacity each.
The Adjustable waist strap is independent of the air bladder so that the jacket will always fit properly without feeling constrictive when inflated. The light alloy D-rings are angular. Travelight BCD incorporates the new Cressi inflator, a direct system for easy maintenance and disassembly, no tools needed, specifically resistant to sand. It has the traditional Cressi double air filtration system to prevent the infiltration of particulates that could clog the mouth of the valve. The new high-quality model is very attractive, thanks to its finishings, weight and feel. The new inflator hose is very durable and robust and features a hose guide.
