Scuba Diving - - Head-To-Head-Testing -

The Trip is aimed at trav­el­ing divers who want a full-fea­tured jacket. On the fea­ture side are weight in­te­gra­tion, a depth-com­pen­sat­ing cum­mer­bund, big zip­pered cargo pock­ets, right shoul­der ex­haust, six well-placed D-rings, and a two-po­si­tion ster­num strap. As for travel, it weighs about 6½ pounds in size medium and folds sur­pris­ingly flat, thanks to a short back plate and flex­i­ble blad­der. The in­te­grated weights use fixed pock­ets that load from the top and ditch by un­clip­ping the buckle and pulling the hook-and-loop on the bot­tom flap; an in­ter­nal di­vider keeps the weights from shift­ing. The de­sign saves the bulk and weight of sep­a­rate pock­ets and was rated very good for load­ing, but some divers found the mul­ti­step re­lease cum­ber­some. Its com­pact de­sign proved quite cozy, with divers rat­ing the Trip very good for com­fort and for at­ti­tude and sta­bil­ity, and giv­ing it the high­est score for ad­justa­bil­ity.
