What was started in the 1970’s in Florida by an avid skydiver quickly became a SCUBA equipment company when the founder took up diving as a hobby. Fast forward 40 plus years and Zeagle is a company known for revolutionizing the dive industry, starting with the integrated weight system that is now standard in the dive world. From their top executive all the way down, everyone at Zeagle is committed to excellence in research and development of high quality dive gear. In fact as a testament to their quality in 1994 a diver traded in his 1986 model Zeagle BCD for a new Ranger BCD. The 1986 model BCD despite having over 4000 dives on it still worked perfectly, albeit a little faded and rough looking. How’s that for a quality unit? So let’s take a quick look at some of the stuff that Zeagle is serving up to the dive world, shall we?
While most thought that the ubiquitous Ranger BCD couldn’t possibly be improved upon, Zeagle went ahead and did it anyway and introduced the Ranger LTD. Chock full of features and oozing with quality much like the original Ranger, the LTD comes with features like; modular construction, sizing for both vest and shoulders(for a more custom fit), optional bladder assemblies allowing for technical dives with large double cylinders, and a versatility that’s simply unparalleled. So, go ahead and give the Ranger LTD a shot...you won’t need another BCD, period!
Are you ready for a regulator that’s a workhorse that also looks good? Then you need to take a look at the F8 Regulator! The F8 is known as Zeagles flagship regulator and has all of the quality that one would expect from a company with such a unyielding commitment to quality and workmanship. Some of the features of the F8 include; smaller and lighter, exhaust valve improvements allowing for easier breathing and ability to breathe from all positions, new heat sink with improved materials and greater surface area to dissipate cold, zirconium plated inlet tube for increased corrosion resistance, inhalation diaphragm with improved response and tear strength, and a sexy new look! Ready for a solid, high performing regulator that won’t drain the wallet? Grab the F8 today!
Public Safety and Military
While Zeagle makes great products for the recreational dive market, they also maintain a solid commitment to providing solid solutions for public safety and military dive teams as well. With products like the SAR BCD with its lift harness allowing the diver to be lifted by a helicopter or other winching system. Or the 911 BCD with key features asked for by both military and PSD divers like reflective tape, added D-rings, and split saddle style harness.
