    This is gonna be a fun diving year. I am glad to find such good information about the gear before I buy my new stuff this year.
    I think I go for the Cressi Aquapro 5, It is the cheapest but I think it will do for me.
    Do you think for a newbie this is a good choice?

      Hi Stefan. As a starter BCD, the Cressi Aquapro 5 is a great BCD to start with. It has many features that you find on the higher end BCDs like the stainless steel D-rings and integrated weight system. I would really recommend it as your first BCD for the budget minded. It is easy to use and comfortable to wear. I wish u great times on your dives this year and hope to see u in the water.

    Interesting article! It seems like a bit difficult to choose since all BCDs mentioned look like high-quality products. I don’t dive but I find it fascinating to learn about it. I have friends who dive and they will probably enjoy your site a lot. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Dira. BCDs start at about $250 and go up to a couple of thousand. These BCDs are what is the best value for your money purchases and they are all good quality BCDs. For beginner divers, it is a matter of what fits you comfortably and what fits your budget. You really do not need the expensive ones until you are an experienced diver who is looking for specific functionality. For a beginner, a basic BCD is all that is really required until you begin to decide what features u really want in a BCD. So if u are planning to take up scuba diving I would recommend and good quality, basic BCD. Hope that helps. 🙂
