Seac's Pro 2000 HD BCD Relaunched
Originally launched in the early 2000s and now in its fourth generation, Seac have given their iconic Pro2000 BCD another makeover.
While the jacket retains the robust and distinctive power inflator mechanism, the bladder has been redesigned as a 3D ‘wedge’ to enable better trim and buoyancy control, and better support the weight of the cylinder.
Seac’s Frame-to-Back system anchors the shoulder straps directly to the backplate meaning the bladder remains entirely independent of the fully-adjustable Advanced Harness System, which allows divers to custom-fit the BCD to cater for all body shapes and different exposure suits
The weight pockets have been re-oriented in a slightly upwards direction to assist with the insertion and extraction of the weight pouches, each capable of carrying 4kg per pocket in the smaller sizes, and 6kg from size L and up. Two 1kg trim weight pockets are built into the jacket either side of the cam buckle.
The material construction has been reconsidered with 1000 denier Cordura utilised for all the external components of the BCD, with Polyurethane coated 420 denier nylon used in the construction of the bladder. Lightweight alloy D-rings, knife mounting grommets, two side pockets and a third ‘hidden’ pocket allow for plenty of storage space during the dive.
Although it falls outside of the ‘lightweight travel BCD’ description, at 3.9kg it is not an especially heavy BCD, without the sacrifice that some models make in order to shave weight from the product.
