Backplates tips divers facedown in the water? Misconceptions revealed. A quick video short for those scuba divers who are told that backplate and wing style bcd’s can tip you face forward. This misinformation comes from bcd brands who overload their front mounted weight pockets with too much lead causing the bcd to tip, or a bladder with all the buoyancy on the bottom having a much wider bottom and smaller upper air chamber on top that is often thinner. You can also tip easily enough from overinflation of the air bladder. This isn’t the case with a properly designed and shaped wing.
