Choosing The Right BCD

Choosing The Right BCD
BCD advice –

BCDs come in two basic shapes; jackets and wings. Most divers learn to dive using a jacket style BCD, these inflate all around your body and around your waist so you feel nice and secure in the water and you sit in a nice position on the surface. Wing BCDs only inflate behind you in a donut or horseshoe shape between you and your cylinder. Wings are preferred by more experienced divers because they hold you in a horizontal position in the water and do not obstruct your movements when fully inflated.

the guy with gills says:

I’ve out grown my old bcd that i had for 3 years and got as a hand me down(its beat up) and I am looking for a new bcd, I love going vertical in the water collum, are back inflates still good for going vertical

Does anybidy have and recomendations for a bcd for lots of scientific diving, and going vertical very often

I’m already eyeing the aqualung axiom i-3 wrapture because I dont have to fumble between my inflator hose and my snorkle
