Scuba Diving - - Head-To-Head-Testing - IN­HER­ENT BUOY­ANCY BUOY­ANT LIFT

Ruggedly made and rich with fea­tures, the Re­sort looks like it should cost more than it does. It took very good scores for com­fort, ad­justa­bil­ity, at­ti­tude and sta­bil­ity, and as­cent con­trol. The highly ad­justable har­ness, with two-po­si­tion ster­num strap and dou­ble-ad­justable cum­mer­bund, al­lowed divers to dial in the fit (although some found it sized slightly large, opt­ing for a smaller size than usual). The trim pock­ets are per­fectly placed, and the in­te­grated weights are se­cure but can be ditched in an in­stant. How­ever, some divers found the weights tricky to load while wear­ing the BC. With a half­dozen stain­less D-rings and roomy zip­pered cargo pock­ets, the Re­sort took the high score for gear stowage. It was rated very good for valve op­er­a­tion, although some divers didn’t like the hard mouth­piece on the oth­er­wise er­gonomic in­fla­tor. More than half of test divers ranked the Re­sort among their top three of the test.
