AP Diving 50th Anniversary Commando Gold Limited Edition

ap commando gold title

AP Diving is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and, to mark the occasion, is releasing a special limited edition version of its Commando BCD. 

The special edition AP Commando Gold is a unique, all-black design with stylish but minimal gold trim. All other specifications and options are identical to the standard AP Commando in terms of material quality, lift capacity, 5 size options, choice of inflator valves, optional integrated weights & mini-cylinder, the ability to upgrade from a single to twinset cam bands and the unique AP first-owner lifetime warranty.

Also to celebrate its half-century. AP is running a series of three '50th Challenges' throughout the year, with the possibility to win one of the new AP Commando Gold BCDs, an AP SMBCi/35P self-sealing surface marker buoy, AP Bamboo Thermos Flask, AP Beanie or an AP Stylus Pen - plus an AP 50th Anniversary Coffee Mug.

The three challenges are:

  • 50 x Dive Adventures - write about your best dive adventure (with pictures) for the chance to win one of the prizes
  • 50 x Beach Cleans - the team judged to have made the best beach cleaning effort will win some AP goodies
  • 50 x Oldest Buddy BCDs - send photos of your oldest Buddy BCDs for the chance to win a limited edition Commando Gold

The closing date for all three challenges is midnight on 30 November 2019, so there is still plenty of time to get involved, do something amazing and win some great AP dive kit prizes - visit to read about everything that people have done so far, and find out how you can take part.

The AP Commando Gold will be produced as a limited hand-made-to-order edition, manufactured only until the end of this anniversary year. Call AP now on 01326 561040 to secure the unique BCD, or order online at
