If you are looking for the ultimate in cross-over BCD's this is it. My home diving is done in Monterey, CA, which is cold 50 degree diving. I then use any available vacation time to commence some warm tropical diving. I had another cross-over BCD that just did not have the same sturdiness of this BCD. This BCD is sturdy, which makes me feel comfortable diving in all conditions, plus it is light enough to pack in your gear bag and not get you over the 50 pound limit. (No one wants to pay extra for going above 50 pounds when already having to pay to check your gear bag). My AOW instructor and Divemaster both use a ZEAGLE Ranger. I believe the regular (non-crossover) Ranger is used by the US Navy Seals, so who can argue with that. Everyone that I know who owns the Zeagle Ranger says they have dove with it for over 15 years without needing a replacement. It seems like the extra up-front cost of buying an expensive BCD pays off in the end since you do not need to replace every few years. This is Zeagle's upgraded Ranger with all the bells and whistles your heart can desire. I highly recommend this BCD for all divers, especially those (who like me) need a BCD with enough Ballast lift for the cold water dives but additionally need the lightweight for easy travel packing. 5/5. As echoed in all of my reviews, Dive Right in Scuba is my go to site for all my gear purchases. Two of my products were backordered and Rich personally called me to see if I wanted to switch to products they had in stock. I did not, so I just received another call from Rich telling me that he was heading down to UPS to ship my items to me. Their customer service is exceptional and it (along with the facts that they have the best/cheapest dive gear available) is why I choose Dive Right in Scuba for all gear purchases. Keep up the great work!

Although I have not had the opportunity to use this in swift water yet i have been using it for open water swims I found it moves well and is very comfortable. It appears to be a good find. The order to arrival period was about 5 weeks which is common for Dry Suits

Bought the halo's a few years back as I wanted a single piece set of underwear to replace my worn out arctic tops. 4th Element had just come out with the halo's and I jumped at the chance to pick the suit up. The fit for me is unbelievable, almost custom cut for my body. The incompressible foam panels in the front feel a bit weird and take a bit to get use to, but they do work, you co not feel the cold on your front. That being said, I still did not find these that much warmer then my 4th element arctics. They are constructed out of the exact same material, just in a once piece configuration with incompressible foam on the front. If asked if I would buy them again, I would say save your money and either buy the arctics, or go check out the Santi BZ400x undergarments.

Nice little pocket that you can add to the waistband of your bc or backplate. Well made, it holds a smb and finger spool tightly.

This is my go to suit for repetitive warm water dives when I want to stay completely warm. In Thailand I trade off between my Spirit 3MM shorty and this suit. The shorty is usually sufficient but for deeper/longer dives I go for this full length 3MM Pinnacle. The material makes this suit super easy to take on and off and is light weight so it won't way down your check-in gear bag. This is a superior 3MM suit and I highly recommend it as superior for warm water diving. I also like to wear this one day and then the next day wear my shorty since wetsuits never seem to fully dry overnight. And who wants to put on wet gear early in the morning? Not I. Hence I recommend this suit combined with the Spirit 3MM shorty for the ultimate in comfort for your tropical dives. 5/5.
