Guardian BCD review

By Christopher Bashforth on 05 Nov. 2019

Had one of these for about 4 years and its been excellent. Have dived all over the UK down to 40m with 10/12/15L cylinerders with and without pony bottle and its been a joy to use. Very buoyant and comfortable on the surface and comfortable while diving. Can highly recommend.

Impressively well equipped for the price!

By Garry D on 18 Nov. 2022

Ordered Medium size these for dive school use. First impressions - you get a lot of features for the price. Pros: Large side pockets Comes with trim weight pockets Integrated weights (that work better than many premium brands) Plenty of D rings The bungee lanyard is a great addition Rugged and durable construction Cons: Fairly weighty at over 4kg dry Over sized - ordered Mediums but would say this is really a Large Webbing around the waist could do with being 50mm wide not 30mm (but still does the job). Have performed well in both the pool and open water with students able to control trim well. All in all very pleased, now only time will tell on their durability.
