Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Seac Pro 2000 HD BCD Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Seac Pro 2000 HD BCD Review Posted in: BCDs, Between $251-$500, Uncategorized

Seac Sub’s Pro 2000 HD BCD is a hybrid design, in that while it is primarily a back-infating wing BCD, it also has some modest capability to inflate on the front like a jacket, making bobbing around on the surface more comfortable. How this works is that the diver tightens the webbing while in the water, limiting the volume of the main air cell so that when you inflate, the air shunts to the front cells instead.

In terms of other features, the BCD has more rings, grommets, and even fabric loops than any diver could ever conceivably need, no matter how much gear he takes down with him. The pockets are mounted on the outside of the integrated weight pouches, and they have a lot of space compared to similar pockets. That is a good thing because, as anyone who uses these types of BCDs knows, the integrated weights always wind up occupying a lot of space in the cargo pocket because the two pouches are neighbors.

Comfort is a big factor too. The harness is adjustable in virtually any direction, and the back pad is very cushy. The one potential drawback is the carrying handle, which is fabric. That is a big turn-off for some divers, who complain about the fabric cutting into their hands when the BCD is heavy with tank and weights.

Consumers love their Seac Pro 2000’s, with feedback and owner reviews giving excellent reports. Divernet gave the BCD nine stars out of ten.

Average Price: $500
